Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material
Almost a home-run for KA-BAR; is if you don't have big hands.
Out of the factory, the edge was quite dull but was quick to sharpen up and has great retention. The sheath is of decent quality and does NOT have glass fibers in the plastic, so it will not dull your knife. KA-BAR learned from that mistake. My only complaint is that without wrapping the handle in paracord, the handle is a bit hard to get a hold of. The length of the handle is good for medium to small hands, it is just thin. I personally can get four fingers wrapped around it and am a man with medium sized hands. If you have large hands, you may wish to look elsewhere unless you're okay with your pinky hanging off. Wrapping the knife with paracord and leaving a loop for your pinky might work well.I use this knife as an EDC/defensive knife and either wear it around my neck or keep it in my back pocket. It is very concealable and very comfortable, although I would check with the laws in your area before carrying.
