Great knife and this is why,,,, bad grammar, sorry! 1. The knife comes even right hand or left handed 2. The handle is very hard but to the touch it's grippe, soft and does not pick up dirt dust nor hair, sits well in the hand and doesn't show use to much. 3. Sheath two bumps on each side very well made high high end woven and sticking buckle or molle, you need to get use to pulling the knife out. It's different hard pull at first once you get use to it then you want everything made like that. 4. "Knife" come's not to sharp compared to a Benchmade 915 or even a Gerber but this is for a reason and "I am actually glad." See how the knife in the picture protrudes before reaching the blade , it sticks out each side .8 inch on both sides and that is what hold the knife into the sheath along with not allowing your fingers to slip. The screw is in the dip but lower and you don't feel holding the knife. 5. customization on blade is simple for left hand or right hand. The tip of the knife is very sharp just as the Benchmade only thicker. the coating of titanium is not on the blade so it's easy to sharpen and it holds it's sharpens very well. I been using this knife to bush craft and sharpened it once in the last 4 months so it get's abused and it looks new. 6. Full tang, it's a heaver knife so when coping the knife takes the work. when splinting and hitting it with log it goes in with ease and even. The knife is easy to move out of logs ect with ease and quickly 7. defensive position "reverse" putting your thumb on the back and you feel you have complete control. Thrusting the knife into something it slides in like nothing. if you don't put your thumb on the back it does not feel secure in that position 8. cleaning is no problem. 9. carving with it is a dream. I have a few knives that are for bushcraft but this is my go to knife. It's very sleek and stealth if wearing black you can't even tell the knife is out. I would put this knife at the top of my list. 10.length is perfect for many uses although it's a knife it can't be used machete as in clearing paths through rain forest . 11. I don't know if it's coated black or the steel is black but with all the things I put it through it's still black with no marking. I have knives that cost 3 times as much and they show the abuse. 12. This is a all in one. It's one hell of a peace of gear and I trust it. it's strong enough to pry things open also. very good. Note I have small hands so the handle might be to small for you if you have large hands. When wet the handel feels diffrent like a diffrent materal that beeds the water. For the first few seconds it feels odd like slime but then you notice the water just beeves off it and it's very stable. 13. compared If this brand was well known your looking at a 400.00 knife easy craftsmanship is top notch. I think they will become known in a few years and it puts my tops rhino to shame in ever aspect. basically it's a small strong KA-BAR Full Size USMC Fighting Straight and them some... The Con would be the blade sharpness for some but for those of you that like to use your knife and not sharpen out of the box then not the knife for you, others like to customize it for there use and for them it's golden. Weight when using it you actually can't tell if using correct 'the knife relay does the work" also when in the sheath it's so well designed you don't even no it's on you. For my use I love the weight of this knife other people that like something like the Spyderco G-10 then maybe this is not the correct choice. G-10 came sharper but, the Alpha feels heaver and stronger and I only sharpend the Alpha once G-10 maybe after 10 days of use. Delta takes time to sharpen but it holds, I don't know I don't think titanium is on the blade or it could be non the less it holds.... The Delta is It's your knife!!!!! So for the sharpness and weight 4 for those that don't like it I don't know how heavy my g-10 is but the Delta feels stronger just like I am holding more of a tool. I also like it better casue it's longer..
