Cons: Sheath, Blade Material, Pocket Clip, None
Fantastic first blade
Bought this knife as a test to see if I would like a hawkbill vs normal knife, definitely not disappointed! I can understand why it doesn't come with a sheath, the blade sticks out a bit when closed, no biggie, it's usually in my pocket anyway. I do wish it had a clip though, and that the blade itself was a slightly harder metal (unfortunately I'm not gonna find anything but stainless under $100). Not big enough cons to dock rating though, it does its intended job, and it was cheap enough to outright replace if it takes heavy, irreparable damage.
