Beware: Awesome Knife Terrible Sheath
The knife itself is sharp and beautifully made. Love the Kraton handle and the black finish.... so it was terrible when I very stupidly (?) actually dared to put the knife in the factory sheath. I was rewarded with marks on the blade and handle.Can't believe I had such a wonderfully crafted knife in my hands only to have the sheath destroy it. I bought this as a addition to my collection now its marked from ONE placement in the sheath. Sort of surprised at the poor quality of the sheath; however this is the 2nd Cold Steel knife I have purchased that had a bad sheath. The other was the Single edged Cold steel T handle knife. That one was usable but the one on the recon isn't. Not only did it mark my blade but the design is terrible anyway with a backwards thumb snap facing the WRONG way to unsnap with your thumb. I wish KnifeCenter would have warned about this being a issue or a factory 2nd or something.I'm keeping the knife but ordering a replacement sheath online from another custom shop.
