Got one today, looks amazing, very durable
Looks amazing, very durable, and it can easily fit in my pocket, I like the hard plastic case too very well designed and very tough. The knife has a very simple design. I like the handle, I can hold the knife firmly. Over all excellent 5 stars for you

good EDC
I use this knife as a everyday carry, I have a 5.11 belt and i fit the sheath inside me pants with the clip facing out on my hip. I like a lot because 90% of the things you(or at least me) need a knife for is just to cut something quick, and a small fixed blade I actually prefer over a folder. I carry this as well as a bigger folder but the knife does its job well. The hole makes it quick and easy to draw, just be careful about re-placing in the sheath to make sure you don't accidently stick it in you instead of the sheath. Only con is it isn't as sharp as I expected form AUS 8, but it's strong, durable, and does small cutting jobs well.

Good To Have
I have used this at work (LE) as a boot knife, because 5.11 makes a 8" boot with a side pocket, and this fits very well. A velcro strap secures it even better. I've also used it as a neck knife, and it's comfortable to wear. Only once it came out of the sheath while wearing it around my neck. I can't really say it was because the sheath was a problem. The clip on the sheath is held together by a few screws, all of which I had to tighten. I ended up replacing one screw which fell out before I realized they were loose. I've never had to use it, but I'd rather have it & not need it, than need it & not have it. It's part of my daily gear now when I get dressed. Every time a co-worker sees that I have it, they always ask where they can get one. The pros outweigh the cons, I'd recommend this knife to others.
