My 2nd one for a reason.
This is my 2nd one because my 1rst "disappeared while supposedly in a secure area. It's great for it's intended design it also opens MREs and I managed to pry some wooden crates open with it due to it being slim enough to slip deep enough into the crate creating a decent lever. It was the tool I had and it needed to be expedient. 440 steel is definitely not at the top of my steel list however in this configuration and hardness it works just fine. The finish is tough but will start to come off with the type of use I gave it. As a martial tool or GITFO it works great. I have trained with the training version a good deal, I have no real world proof. Slim,easy to position on kit and allows the ability to create the distance needed to break contact or make another choice. I chose the serrated version for the better flexibility as a work tool and the legality while carrying it out of uniform in most parts of the country as the other choice is double edged. I have also found, while comparing it to other guys double edged blade that the single edge has a better cutting profile out of the box and thus is easier to maintain as a cutting and poking thing. The blade length itself also helps adapt to some ridiculous laws. This sheath is the new and improved version which allows much better retention to whatever(molle, belt,etc). It is about $25 too expensive although it's your choice. I still have and use my training version so this was the logical decision for me. If this is being bought as a combative tool I highly suggest the small jump in price to the unit that comes with both. The trainer has allowed me a great deal of flexibility in training and potential use. Best regards to all.

Nice dagger
This is a great little dagger,easy to conceal,quick to draw,I got mine sharp,it slices paper,put it on a leather strop,and got it razor sharp.The only problem is the clip,if you pull it out of thin pants pocket the sheath comes with it i’ll be using mine on a go to bag,it will be tied down so I don’t have a problem,but I can see others complaints.All in all a great knife for it’s purpose.

SOCP Dagger
I use this daily. I am a law enforcement officer and I wear the dagger clipped into one of the button holes on my shirt; hiding the knife perfectly behind my tie for quick access.An excellent knife for last resort defense.
