Great Knife for a Great Price
I purchased this knife for my oldest son who is in the USMC and deployed. When it came in for me to ship to him (Knife Center ships to APO but I had a unique situation to deal with) I was so impressed with it I ordered two more, one for me and one for my youngest son, who is also a Marine. All three of us are very happy. The knife has a great heft and balance when you hold it. It is sturdy, but easy to open with one hand and comes with a nice heavy duty nylon sheath. We are all three very happy with our knives and have no suggestions for improvement or change.

KA-BAR 3050 MULE Heavy-Duty Folder
This knife has a good feel and is well balanced. Blade is sharp and has stayed sharp since purchase. It has a substantial heft while not being overly heavy. I use this knife for just about anything you could think of a use for and the pocket clip makes it very handy to keep with me at all times. Doubt I'll use the sheath but it also appears well made. The ambidextrous thumb knobs make it easy to open one handed with either hand. All in all this knife lives up to the KaBar name and will get lots of use.
