Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Finish, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Buy this now. You will never need another knife ever again.
Out of the box was so sharp it would cut newspaper under its own weight. The balance feels great, handle is grippable when wet too so thats a plus. Leather sheath is nice and well made and most of all if you ever need to re sharpen the blade, it takes minimal effort on a good diamond coarse/fine stone. I dont know if its just me but the metal didn't seem to be soft enough to grind properly on my medium arkansas stone which ususally does the trick for my other combat knives. I think of that as a plus cos damn it holds its edge under use. Overall an absolute must buy, should be the 1st and only knife anyone will ever need.
