Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Impressive looking, comfortable in hand
I particularly like the "parrot beak" at the end of the handle that provides comfort and adds to the chopping power of the knife.

Machete is fantastic ($40 of price), sheath is passable ($2 of price). Be honest though - you are buying the machete, the sheath is just extra as far as I am concerned. The people complaining that the machete is great but the sheath sucks are the same people that would not buy this machete if ka-bar included a nice $25 leather sheath because then the price would be in the $65 range and you would still be getting a $40 machete. So look at it as getting the most bang for your buck.

My third KaBar
I also own the BK2 and the Heavy Duty Warthog (my fav blade) and thought this time around I want something bigger, well this thing sure is! Although I would have loved for the blade to have been 1/4'' thick, a bit more weight would have made this blade perfect. Again the sheath is nothing special but not bad either, it does what its made to do, carry the blade! It would have been better if it was a bit faster to remove the blade from the sheath. It was sharp out of the box, and again I just love that handle, it was made to fit my hands, it makes light work out of timber and would take out a family of zombies in a blink of an eye! My next KaBar product will be the heavy Bowie, I even emailed KaBar to see if they would do a Tomahawk with that great handle, something new for 2013, come on KaBar it would sell like hotcakes! And Knifecenter you need to do something about your shipping cost to Australia, I can get most knives via Ebay for a way better price!
