Great Knife/Garbage Sheath
The knife is sharp enough for its primary purpose. The signatures in the blade bother me a little, but, hey, credit should be given where credit is due. The balance is great. The sheath, however, is absolute garbage! The rivet (Sp?) on the tip will dmage your blade and drawing this knife from its garbage sheath would be very difficult in a stressful situation. Tek Loks (Sp?) are not all that they're boasted to be- I think they're useless. I've had this knife for two years...in a droor. Why, you might ask. Because the sheath is garbage. I just now ordered a custom sheath for it. This knife would serve well for its purpose. This is not a hunting knife. This is not a bushcraft knife. This is not a box cutter of a food prep knife. This is made to drive into the vital organs or arteries of an enemy combatant when a firearm is not appropriate or available. The sheath damages the tip of the blade (the most important part of the knife) and would prevent you from using the knife in the scenario it is designed for. I have never disliked a sheath for a knife so much. When my custom sheath arrives, I will make a point of destroying the factory sheath. I would rather have Boker send a cardboard sleeve for this knife than that piece of worthless junk.
