Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Love the balance weight and overall quality including the 5160 steel. Very good blade for the money. If your thinking about buying it get it.Shaving sharp out of the box.Lightweight chopper,camp,kitchen, carver,splitter all around versatile and worth it. I can do all my fieldcraft chores with this biggish blade easily and it is comfortable to use for long periods unlike some other knives I own. Excellent big blade hiker tool I can hammer tent pegs in with it. Chop small dead and down tree limbs with it. Fire prep feathersticks etc..Agree with others about the sheath I suppose I will wear this one out or hope for a replacement soon from Ontario. The blade/finger guard is a nice feature but is a rubber or similar material and has a little flex to it. The kraton handle fits my large hands very well and is comfortable to use. When sweating though you need to be careful with your grip. I would have liked a slightly exposed tang at the butt for smashing stuff. All in all at this price point it is still a very good value. I kind of think of it as a mid priced beater that will see a ton of action.
