Prefer the V-42
I'm not impressed with this knife at all, I had one for a few yrs, and it basically fell apart the first time I ever really needed it, The blade snapped in half at the hilt after falling from a footbridge onto a boulder in a dry stream bed while on Deployment in Afghanistan, roughly about 4 feet. Now,, my V-42,,(w/ an Aussie accent, Say "Now, That's a Knife"), Is a knife fighter's dream, The blade will punch through anything, It also has the rep to go with it. The 1st SSF knew what they were doing when they decided on the V-42 over any other fighting knife available, even the Sykes Fairbairn,Ka-Bar,etc.The handle needs some stippling, or something that'll add some grip to the handle, when your hand(s) wet it'll pop out of your hand like your squeezing a banana out of its skin. I had to wrap the handle in some Camo cloth adhesive wrap.
