Pros: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Cant function without it!
The Cold Steel SRK does whatever you want it to do, and does it good. It arrives super sharp and I didn't even notice it slicing through my tissue and into my thumb! Cons are that the harder VG-1 steel has a greater chance to chip when using it in harder on harder materials, but is otherwise excellent. The sheath has both a pro and a con, and that is that its very securely holds the knife in, and thusly makes it almost impossible to get it out if you don´t both of your hands to take it out. I got around this by adding a strap which goes around my leg which also eliminates any bouncing issues.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Very High Quality!
Solid knife and with great steel (VG-1 Stainless). I typically am not a fan of SS fixed blades but this knife provided me with a new perspective. The blade is insanely strong and has almost unlimited uses. Handle material is grippy and comfortable and seems to be holding up very well. Sheath is both a pro AND a con. The sheath is very secure and versatile. I like it a lot but with the Kray-Ex™ grip that extends to the guard, it makes drawing the knife difficult as it locks in very tight... that is my ONLY gripe. But I still love the knife and it hasn't prevented me from carrying it.
