Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard
Another Classic Ka-Bar In The Making
This knife is quite the slicer, and fits the hand really well. Sheath retention is almost too tight, but is better than being loose. The top half of the blade has a swedge that can easily have an edge put on it. It is purposefully designed this way as Jarosz himself intended the knife to be a combat/utility blade. The knife came with a sharp edge from the factory, and didn't take too long put my own personal angle on it. The sheath holds the knife with no noise if rattled. A lot of synthetic material sheaths are noisy buggers. Not so with the Turok, but you have to have decent coordination and strength during the break in period. This knife was put into my survival blade rotation, because its design is very similar to other no frills, full tang blades. And at the price, it is a near un-beatable blade value for quality, USA made cutlery.
