The Pentagon sets the policy for action. Designed as a back up for military and law enforcement professionals, the Pentagon is a striking, multipurpose, doubled-edged knife. Its five-inch stainless steel blade offers the instant choice between a straight or beveled edge, giving you the ability to easily cut a multitude of thick materials and fibers. An additional advantage is the blade's thumb notches, designed for precise blade orientation and downward control. The Pentagon's flared Kraton handle ensures an optimal grip and no reflection for secure concealment. Includes tactical Nylon sheath.

Good deal, with a few quirks
This is a knife with a few ups and downs, as far as I'm concerned. It's much lighter than I would have imagined. the hollow grinds are very deep creating a fairly thin, light, and nimble blade. It is not a blade that I imagine would stand up to much abuse, but if you're not throwing it, prying, or running around burying the point in oak logs or something, I think it'll hold together just fine. I was very pleasantly surprised by the symmetry of the blade grinds. Anyone who has ever made a double edge dagger can generally appreciate that it's quite a challenging endeavor, very few of them are symmetrical at all, but merely "functional" This knife had about the most perfect grinds I've seen for under a four digit price tag. It came with a mediocre edge, but took a hair popping edge with very little effort. Though it's fairly obvious to most folks, I do feel the need to point out that the blade only has about 3 3/4" cutting edge- the first inch in front of the guard is just a thumb rest on each side. The serrations are decent. Not the greatest in the world, but highly functional. The handle is very well proportioned to my short fingered XL due to thickness hands. It's very grippy- between that and the un-sharpened portion of the edge, There is no reason for concern regarding ones hand slipping onto the blade. The biggest nitpick: The factory sheath is garbage. It's massive size and bulk is probably fine for those attaching it to web gear or something, but it is simply not a workable deal for those of us who aren't in any kind of a war zone or other open carry environment where a knife of this style would be appropriate. Further more, the retention strap is constantly in the way..of the double edged knife. Mine got cut within hours. It definitely gives fuel to the argument that SOG is trying to mass produce to please the masses. I understand they're trying to meet a price point, but I would very much like to see them offer an alternative to the factory sheath at the time of purchase. Now, the good news is that SOG does make and sell a kydex sheath for it for $30- Sure would be nice if Knife Center carried them...(hint...hint...) I would suggest to anyone considering this knife to budget a different sheath into the costs. I made a kydex one for mine within a few days. I purchased this knife just for general purpose grubbing around the yard and shop, and especially for use while boating, fishing, and dip netting for salmon. I think it's extremely well suited for cutting line, net, bait, gilling fish carving out bones from fillets, etc. Protection wasn't a primary task in mind, but I do believe it to be a very capable knife.

Real sharp
while I'n not a big fan of knives of this size, it still has some positive features. The blade was razorsharp out the box. Ready for combat. My one buddy noted however that the velcro on the sheath would alert a would-be target of your presence as you creep up on him. Realisticly though, the sheath has way too many straps and goodies on it, and I think a press-stud and velcro is overkill for securing the blade in the sheath. I found the grip fitted my hand well, and it would take a very weak grip for this knife to slip out of your hand. Overall, I'd say its not my kind of knife, but for what it was built, it would do the job.
