Perfect Utility Knife
This knife is outstanding. It can easily perform any job that I need it to. Its great for cutting rope/cords, hammering, clearing branches and tall grass, opening cans/containers, and its a very eye appealing knife. The handle made of Kraton fits my hand perfectly and is slip resistant. The weight if the knife is perfectly balanced at the handgaurd, and the total weight is .65 lbs. The knife is decently thick, at the spine it is about .165 in, which doesnt sound like much, but it as actualy pretty thick. With this being said, the knife is very sturdy, and is full tang. The blade holds its edge very well. I keep a 20 degree tip on it so that it is sharp but not fragile. The HRC rating of this knife is 56-58. I personally would recommend this knife over any other brand, this is also my favorite knife from KA-BAR. There is a reason military and LE use this knife. The same reason i have 2 of them. Its the one of the best out there.
