The worst sheath I've ever seen
The sheath is just terrible. The plastic insert is so tight on the blade that I am literally forcing it into the sheath, and when I pull the knife out the insert comes out with it, ripping out of the cloth sheath. Horrible, horrible design. The handle is clunky, but it unscrews and I wrapped mine in paracord. The core knife itself is really nice though, which is why I tried so hard to make it work, I really like the blade. But I can't deal with the sheath, the third time taking it in and out, the insert ripped the bottom of the sheath ans it now come out with the knife. I'm sending it back.

Knife is great... The knife, not the rest.
I purchased the camo version, as a tribute to battlefield 4, as it was a knife I had looked at in the past. The steel section of this knife is nice and grind lines are even. The patterned section is nice and the saw back has an attractive look with moderate functionality. It's a hefty full tang blade. The positives, I feel, end at that. The sheath is more or less a trash can filler. The plastic insert pulled out with the knife on the first draw. They did include a nice diamond hone though which I'll put in the new sheath. The grips are cheap and have zero comfort value. I'm a micarta guy but grips are easy enough to change out. It's a good blade it just needs work. If you want an inexpensive tanto go with the cold steel GI for the total package.

Unbelievable knife for the money
Solid as a rock, great grips and ergonomics, balance, really hard to overstate how well this design just works. Great as the go-to blade for camping/hiking, combat, survival, hunting, etc. - all the usual cutting tasks, plus a lot of medium/heavy-duty stuff I wouldn't do to my Trailmaster (even prying with the spine, and hammering with the base - it's really that stout). Edge has a good balance between sharpness and durability. Sheath is a little lightweight, could be heavier denier cordura, but it's functionally excellent, and has a full plastic liner, either PP or PV. You can carry this thing about five different ways, and I didn't even notice that it comes with a diamond whetstone until I unboxed. Whole lotta knife for your money...
