Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.

Cons: None
The knife is very well made, keeps a great edge.
I used the knife for deer season, it kept its edge butchering several deer. I was disappointed that it was not made here.

Knife Center Provides Truth in Advertising
This is a pretty decent knife. Not sure about long term durability. I got one from Kennesaw Cutlery after seeing their catalog describing the leather handle Kabars as "made in U.S.A." - couldn't pass up a U.S. made Bowie for $44 or so, right? After receiving it, I called them and asked why they claim that the knives are made in U.S.A. The service rep said that I could return it if I'm not happy with it, but that she doesn't write the catalog comments. Check one of their catalogs - they continue the "Made in U.S.A." claim on these knives. Thank you, Knife Center, for not engaging in such unethical marketing!
