Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Got this knife to test Cold Steels 1055 Carbon Steel. It's super resilient. I do mostly backyard cutting stuff (similar to, but not exactly like) the back yard cutters guild. One gallon water jugs, throwing targets, and I did the hammer fist through the cinder block thing the Cold Steel Video on the knife shows. Very solid.I really like the handle, as it is allen wrench screws, and easy to tighten or remove for maintenance, not that you will need to do that often, if ever, with this knife. It's got a nice weight to it, and I have large hands, and it still fits in my grip several different ways.This knife is a no-regret kind of deal. I never consider the quality of the sheath, or scabbard of a knife that comes with it when purchased, because I do my own leather work, and make my own stuff to my specs to get it the way I want it. That being said, this scabbard is very nice for the knife. It's a bit loud on the draw and re-sheathing, but generally noise isn't so much a factor... right? Decent quality, nothing special about the case. I like the velcro-button snap fixture on the main belt loop, easy to attach to a belt you are already wearing, or remove from a belt without dropping trow...
