This is really a mule
I use this as a work knife meaning I abuse it totally. Everything a knife was not meant to do +everything it was. It is big, heavy and tough. This isn't an EDC this is a work knife. It's as tough as a fixed blade but more compact. The handle is comfortable, lock back secure and AUS8 blade steel holds an edge and is easy to sharpen. I wouldn't consider this a tactical knife so why the black blade. It just scratches off and looks like hell. A nice brushed satin would keep the bllade looking better under abuse. I prefer a drop point but they have chosen not to offer that. Not sure about the sheath sometimes l use it most times it it clipped I my pocket. Oh well still a great knife.

Great knife
Good sturdy knife. I have owned it for a couple of months now and it has performed well with daily tasks. The only complaint is the edge on the knife. It came razor sharp out of the box but I started noticing chips in the edge after about a month. If you don't mind some touch up sharpening every couple weeks it is an excellent knife for the price.
