This knife should be a GI item.
I bought this knife to use on drill weekeends when I am with my National Guard Combat Engineer unit. I am always opening packaging for something or cutting 550 cord or webbing. It comes super sharp out of the box. The thick stock flat ground blade is perfect for any cutting chore. S30V blade steel is not going to get dulled easily by mundane cutting chores. The handle ergonomics are great and the texture of the G10 is "grippy" and the digital pattern is an exact match for the Army ACU uniform and most load bearing gear. The deployment action is smooth and the blade has no side to side wobble when locked into place. The tip down carry works well on the knife because there is enough surface exposed during pocket carry that grabbing the knife and getting it into play is easily done. This knife is a great "working" knife for any Soldier, Airman, Sailor or Marine. Just don't loan it to your Battle Buddy or you may not get it back.
