Great knife, This full tang blade straight edge, surprised me quite a bit. A knife collector, This knife beat my expectations and may be a new favorite of mine. Packing in at about 8.5 inches and 6 ounces, this blade is much bigger and heftier than i thought it would be. It feels substantial in your hand with a unique paracord wrap, roughly 7 feet of paracord. Not incredibly sharp but certainly not dull, a good sharpening will alleviate that in about 5 minutes.
The sheath is the typical tactical molded plastic you expect from SOG, nice design with the blade sitting sturdy in the sheath but smooth in withdrawal. The sheath comes with an alternative belt clip you can add in place of installed holder. Sturdy and strong. All in all this knife is great.
I carried this knife on my belt for about a week were I work. I work in a warehouse, and this knife did everything I wanted. Manly opening things, cutting cardboard, plastic (etc). However, I decided I wanted to test this knife in an outdoor situation since it is a survival knife. While cutting wood to make a fire I found that the actual blade edge would bend and warp after use. I figured it would be okay and sharpen out, but then i decided to see how well the knife could be used as a throwing knife, since I was told it was a survival knife and weighted to be thrown. After a few throws at a tree, the tip of the knife bent making it unusable.
Good knife, good steal, good feel to it. But it is just too big. It is just a lot of knife, not really what I was looking for. It is not too long from top to bottom it is just huge. I feel like I am ready to fight someone with it like a combat knife rather than just use it in the woods, projects, every day carry, etc.
