This is not the best knife I have ever used. Its edge needed some work. The handle, even for a skeletonized one, was uncomfortable. The steel is a lower quality 5Cr15 Stainless Steel. But the geometry is good. It will fit in a sheath pocket and can easily be clipped on to the outside of a pack. It is easy to sharpen and takes a very nice edge. And this price can't be beat. The design and shape of the blade is perfect for close in applications where a nice belly for slicing is needed. It is also light to be used as a neck knife if needed. This is the knife I hand to friends while camping or hunting when I know they're going to end up pounding the blade against a rock or rolling and chipping the edge against a bone or something else equally destructive. I also would have 0 problem leaving this knife if a situation required that... and thats a good thing.
I am a knife enthusiast with hundreds of cutting tools and I can say confidently this knife is a piece of crap and not up to standard with other Kabar knives. Just don't buy there are much better options on Amazon.
Looks great but very dull. Can't seem to get it sharp enough to cut paper easily. Wish it would have been better. I bought a Kabar Dozier (tan handle black blade) and I would recommend that you buy one of those instead. Way better value and better quality knife. You won't be disappointed with the Dozier.
