Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Blade Sharpness
Huge. Maybe a bit too huge.
Something the stats don't really impress is just how enormous this knife really is. I have pretty big hands (~4"/10cm across the knuckles) and it's borderline too big for me. The linen micarta handles are decently grippy. I don't like the texture to the powdercoating on the blade, my personal preference would have been for something smooth, lower friction and easier to clean.The sheath is what you'd expect from a knife at Knifecenter's price, I'd have been disappointed by it if I'd paid full retail and will replace it with a leather sheath soon. The design is Ok, but the plastic insert is too lightweight for the weight of the knife and it rattles, which irritates me. It'll do fine for strapping to a pack though. I'm not sure you'd want to carry something this big on a belt.The blade sharpness out of the box leaves a lot to be desired. Even for a big 'chopper' like this, it wouldn't cut paper and that's too blunt. You don't want to be having to put a lot of force behind a blade this big or it'll bite you bad.
