Pros: Weight
Cons: None
Middle weight
I use the Benchmade leather sheath, as the Kydex sheath doesn't hold the knife in place. I also put a leather belt loop dangle on the leather sheath. Comfort on a belt all day is important as I often spend 8 hour days in the woods clearing brush and invasive species. Some sheaths carry too high and pinch your side. Fixed sheaths bind when sitting on the Gator. The Bushcrafter is heavy enough to baton an ugly parasitic grapevine, but light enough for whittling the bark off a walking stick. My Bark River Bravo 1 is similar in many respects, but it has a convex grind which requires my Ken Onion sharpener to touch up. The Bushcrafter can be done with a diamond stone or Sypderco sharpener. For heavy baton work, nothing beats the TrailMaster, but that is simply too heavy to comfortably wear all day. I wore this knife all day yesterday and used it several times.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Great buscraft blade
The knive is well made. Fits and rest comfortable in my hand and it does the job outdoors hiking. I am only looking for a better sheat for this knive. I prefer leather sheat black butt also do not mind nylon sheat black with molle feature. If you have any tips or suggestions for me i like to hear them.
