Cons: None
Great Knife
This is an awesome knife. I had heard good things about this brand and was looking for a good bush-craft/survival knife. this is a hard use knife i have had no problems using it for even the toughest jobs. It easily splits wood and will cut larger tree limbs when using a baton. This is one tough and solid knife.

Update/add-on review
The key thing here is the blade grind was bad. I had to spend a bunch of time re-profiling the back bevel to 30 degrees then add a 40 degree working edge. This down it was honed and shaving sharp but rugged. Great performer now. Sheath still bad get a new one. Great bush knife this has turned out to be. The handle is comfortable though ugly and after hours of hard work my hand feels just fine. A good value that works hard in the woods and now with the re-profile (wow that took a lot of work by hand) is easy to resharpen. Keeps a good field edge. Keep your little packet knife sharp if you want to keep shaving after the first tinder pile and shelter are built but edge comes back fast on this steel so keep a pocket sharpener handy and your ok.

Good outdoor do all knife god value
Great knife. Like the grip finish features etc. Sheath is terrible just buy a new one that fits it. Perfect for all around outdoor activities. Good size weight trade off and very durable. A great survival or bush knife that will do if needed but not get in your way on a regular hike.
