All you need...all you could want...
This knife is all you could need in a knife, and all you could want. It is classic and simple. It has everything you need in a knife and nothing you don't. The skinner blade is one that has stood the test of time. It is sharp, stays sharp and easy to sharpen. If you know what you are doing, you don't need a lock. Without a lock, it is easy to shut with a quick swipe of the hand. The black smooth grips won't fatigue the hand when used for a long period of time. The appearance don't scream "I want to be an airborne ranger", even though these knives were known to go to Vietnam with numerous rangers. It is made to be used. No scrollwork and fancy wood on this knife. If it is lost in a swamp, woods, or mountainside, go buy another.
