This knife is exactly what I expected: sharp and solid. I have zero complaints about the knife and would purchase again. One shortcoming I did find, however, was with how the sheath can be oriented. I had been hoping to carry this knife horizontally on a belt, and while this can be accomplished, you must use paracord to do it. The sheath can be mounted vertically on a belt, but you cannot simply unscrew the sheath and reaffix in a horizontal position because the holes will not line up that way with the belt clip. This criticism takes nothing away from the knife or even the functionality of the sheath itself; it only means I couldn't do precisely what I wanted with it (but I do think an easy redesign could fix this).
