Awesome tool
I have battoned with ease. Chops good. Edge retention is good even after batoning. My handles were actually very comfortable despite other reviews I've seen. It came decently sharp, was able to get very sharp relatively easy, similar to 1095 as far as ease of sharpening in my opinion. I honestly feel the sheath is fine, if worried there is plenty of room to sew a additional Velcro strap as I plan on.

Very impressed
I usually try and read as much as I can about a knife before buying as I don't have access to a shop where I can handle them before I buy. What little I could find out about OKC and the Ranger knives was vague and inconclusive but the RD7 fitted my brief and being made from 5160 steel I had to give it a go. I have been very impressed, the knife is well made and has so far been great for converting wood and general camp duties. The finger choil that I'm not usually a fan of really allows this big knife to be used for more delicate duties meaning it really is a do it all tool. The scales are a little square but I'm happy with that as it will allow me to shape them to fit my hand better. The sheath is ok but as I spend a lot of time in and around water I will make a concealex one. For the money this knife has go to be the best deal out there and I don't understand why more people aren't shouting about it. If you want a very well designed no nonsense big knife then the RD7 should definitely be on your short list, I'm extremely happy with mine.
