Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Finish
I bought this knife for camping duty, general use, processing wood for fires, that sort of thing. In all fairness, I chose the wrong knife. From the reviews, I thought this was a tough well made knife. The edge was sharp enough to cut, but not very well executed. I was expecting better. It isn't a smooth cutter/carver out of the box. I need to put a good edge on it, but I don't know if this knife is worth the work. While batoning some firewood at night, the next morning I noticed the handle was badly bent where it met the blade. The tang just couldn't handle the task. The coating on the blade came right off. It's really a poor coating. This is a very fragile knife. Batoning voids Kabar's warranty. I easily bent the tang back straight again. It really didn't take much force to straighten it. That scares me. This knife now needs to be disassembled, the blade stripped, and then it needs the edge to be profiled and sharpened. I'm not sure the knife is worth the work. Like I said, I picked the wrong knife for the task at hand.
