great knife at a great price
i bought the knife to use exclusively in the yard and garden. i liked the skeletonized handle and that cord-wrapping it (for which there are several tutorials specific to this knife on youtube) is quick and can be undone to clean it or replace it. when cord-wrapped, the knife has just the right width. the thumb rest on top and the handle length make it fit perfectly in your hand. the blade is crazy sharp and has cut through limbs, bamboo, dirt, and roots, and it's still just as sharp as the first day. the sheath is also great. not too heavy and versatile so that you can carry it up and down or horizontally. and you can use the cord-wrap (which you'll need more of than is supplied) and cord-lock to make belt loops that tighten down as much as you need. in short, it's a versatile, sturdy, sharp, and high quality knife. it's also backed by RAT's lifetime, no-questions-asked replacement policy. that's nice.
