Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Excellent Superlight Fighter
This knife is first rate in every way. Every aspect of it is well thought out and executed. The steel is one of the best stainless steels available. The handle is as touted - grippy, tough and comfortable. It is complete with a steel butt pommel, a lanyard hole that is the right diameter for standard paracord and a large ergonomic guard. On the guard is a notch that a nylon "flap" on the mouth of the sheath snaps tightly into. This allows the knife to be strapped upside down with extra confidence. Very nice. The serrations on the top of the knife's spine are of unique design. Unlike any other I've seen. They are deceivingly sharp. Also, the tip of this blade comes needle sharp. After sharpening this knife, you'll realize the steel is a little harder than average. Perfect for a longer excursion. With serrations on the top and bottom, this knife is not designed for working with wood or to be used as a bushcraft knife. Also, it takes some practice lifting the corner of the sheathes mouth flap to remove the knife from it's sheath at all, let alone quickly. That's the only drawback of the sheath system. On the positive side, the sheath is adjustable in every way. Even the depth of the front pocket. It is truly one of the better ballistic nylon sheathes that companies "throw" in with nearly all tactical knives. Of all the outstanding aspects of this great fighter, it's best feature is it's phenomenally light weight. It's balance is that you can barely feel that there is a blade out front! Truly incredible. An extremely fast, we'll designed, we'll made knife that you can take to war with absolute confidence.
