Under Rated Knife
I believe this is a great knife for the money and there are not a lot of knives in this catagory, especially for the money. This is not an EDC knife. It is a large and heavy knife. If you've asked yourself, "what is a good folding knife that will feel like a fixed blade or be a good back work-knife if my fixed blade breaks when in the field, this is that knife! It is very comfortable to hold and has a great handle in general. It has a pocket clip, but also a great sheath. For the money and right purpose, this is a great work knife. This knife is named appropriately as "mule"... it is a good work knife.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Weight
Great Utility Knife
Great knife, the serrations really help when cutting through tough cardboard or 550 cord. Also the plain edge on the knife as expected from Ka-Bar came razor sharp. The only thing that is a problem with the knife is that the lock on the knife is stiff and getting it out with one hand is a bit of a problem. Overall a great knife that will complete any task it was designed for and more.
