Hard use urban blade
First off. The sheath for this knife is probably worth close to $50 alone. It's that good. Thick stitching, molle compatible, comes with leg straps, an dis easy to take apart to adapt to your kit. Built in sharpener I never use, but is a nice touch.This knife is marketed as a "survival" knife, but really does not belong in the woods. This isn't meant for bushcraft, wood processing, trap building, game cleaning... This is a without a doubt a utility knife meant for urban or "soldier" tasks.Cutting thru heavy rope/zipties. Prying open crates and cans. Breaking thru glass and other man made materials... this is thing like a wrecking bar with an edge. And of course, helps you get into those MREs everyone loves to hate.It's a thick chunk of steel, with an insulated handle to protect against both vibrations and shock. Glass breaker and "hammer" on the pommel is nice and solid. Of course, it is not a full tang knife... but you will probably break the blade before breaking the handle off of this thing.Out of the box, it was reasonably sharp, but not hair splitting. It is a thick chunk of steel designed for toughness, not delicate tasks after all. Gerber does serrations pretty well. I'm not a fan of serrations on a most blades, but they come in handy when dealing with man made materials, like thin aluminum, particle board and plexiglass. $75 for a made in the USA knife is great. Not every knife you own needs to be for camping or the wilderness. Most of us spend much more time in civilization than the bush.
