Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
I am using this knife as a utility and hunting tool. It is the perfect size for my needs. I was concerned that it was too small, but when received, it was exactly what I was imagining.

Was not impressed.
Knife quality was okay but it was nothing special. If I were to do it again I wouldn't purchase this knife. The knife came so dull out of the box it was unable to cut. I'm planning on cutting my losses and giving this knife away.

great little knife
Bought this knife to replace the one that my wife has had since she was a girl guide in her native Denmark. She loves the look and feel of her new ka-bar and has gladly replaced her old faithful with it. Her only complaint with her ka-bar was the same as mine when i received my ka-bar, they don't come much sharper than butter knives from the box. Other than blade sharpness, great little knife.
