Does what it supposed to do
It’s mind boggling why so many fans seem to think this knife should be capable of wood work (chop/baton duties),acting as a prybar to pry things with,etc; because that’s NOT what the design is about. Although the C/K Dragon is obviously a combat/self defense knife,it’s surprisingly versatile in the kitchen. I use this knife to slice up watermelon,butcher chicken, and other food prep duties. The tip is not nearly weak as some have claimed. While doing food prep in the sink I have accidentally stab the SINK several times and the tip hasn’t snapped off. 9cr18mov is actually a surprisingly good steel considering the design; 420a or 440a would suffice for this design as it’s a “pig sticker” first and foremost,and any steel with a proper HT/Temper would work,so kudos to CRKT for using a better steel than is required for this knife. Yes,the jimping is aggressive,especially for soft fingers, but after time you will get adjusted. I have rough textured fingers/hand so it doesn’t bother me much,if any. The handle is kinda short, but it’s enough real estate for average size hand. Handle scales are slick, but the deep finger choil keeps the hand in place. I have not had any issues out of the sheath. No,my sheath didn’t come with any attachment, but I have plenty of Tek-loks,and I simply attached to the sheath. This sheath and knife will easily fit down into a pocket of a pair of blue jeans, and it rides just as good as any XL size folder, and takes up about the same amount of space in pocket. Call me crazy, but this is one of those knives that if it had a different brand name on the knife it would receive higher stars.. A better knife than given credit online.
