Pros: Blade Material, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
A must have classic.
A real classic that simply can not miss in any serious collection. Skip the version with serrations, go for this one, the vanilla Marine Corps knife for so many years. When you buy this knife, even in its modern version, you are not simply buying a piece of workmanship which you can trust, you are buying a little piece of history and hopefully, contribute with your little part to the never ending continuation of this legend. Everything in this knife is beyond criticism, being such a pure and simple design and having been battle tested so many times. The sheat is the only thing that could be better: I like it and I think it's more than decent... but at the same time I can not help feeling that this blade deserves more. The knife itself is not expensive but if I can I will not think twice about getting a higher quality leather sheath for it, even if the sheath is going to cost more than the knife: legends are getting harder and harder to come by, this one deserves all your respect.
