Great general purpose knife around camp
This inexpensive knife has been used through a summer of back country camping and really proved its mettle.I love the way the blade is "everything you need and nothing you don't". The blade is long enough to be really useful for things like food prep, where a folding knife is too small. The grind on the blade is very high, and the steel stock slim, making for a thin edge that slices really nicely, and a fine point for detail work. The slim blade stock also keeps the knife light in weight. So many knives these days are made from ugly great slabs of thick steel, which looks "tough" but proves to be just heavy and hard to use - this is not one of them! It's a cutting knife, not a bashing knife (!) so if you want to prep firewood and all that then you'll need to complement it with an axe.The sheath is very compact and light weight. The whole thing just tucks into your pocket if you want. The belt loop is not a clip but a fixed loop, which is something I don't like. I would have preferred the clip style as the knife is often passed around to different people and getting the loop off the belt is awkward. Hence putting it all in my pocket. At the end of your trip one good thing is the GRN sheath just goes into the dishwasher!The blade steel is ideal for this knife. Great value for money. Rust resistance is excellent, it sharpens up in a few seconds on the stone, and is easy to get really sharp. It doesn't hold an edge for long like a "premium" steel, but Buck (yes, they make these for Remington) have heat treated this nicely and for a J2 knife it's very good. There's a little bit of a recurve under the belly of the knife, and I think a straight blade would have been easier to sharpen, but it's no big deal.All up I really like this knife for camping and hunting - great size and ergonomics, really useful blade, light to carry, and a bargain as well.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Blade Material
Soft steel--easily honed
I bought this inexpensive knife to practice the use of a Wicked Edge sharpening system. The soft 420J2 stainless steel met its reputation for being easy to sharpen, but unlikely to hold its edge for long. The tiny metal shards removed by the Wicked Edge diamond hones were so soft that they were clingy, and it required considerable effort to remove them from the blade edge. On the other hand, the soft steel worked quickly, and it was easy to make adjustments during the honing process so that I obtained a perfect bevel and point. And the resulting edge was the sharpest I had ever honed. So despite the knife's overall limitations, it was a bargain as a good self-teaching tool. And I'll take it into the field and see how long the edge holds up. Maybe the knife will surprise me.
