Cons: None
Herters knife
I use it as my go -to knife along with my bull cooks knife. I had owned one years ago that I got from Herters, but had given it to my son in-law. I also wasn't expecting the sheath, as it doesn't show one in your illustration. I will use it in the field as well.

Herter's Improved Bowie
I purchased both these knives as gifts for fellow Vietnam vets. I bought my first knife of this design as a "Herter's Improved Bowie" 54 years ago. My knife sharpens easily and holds an edge well, and is kept in my tackle box. The sheath could stand upgrading, but, what does one expect at these prices?

Below average far from great
I agree that this would have been an excellent knife had better QC been taken with my knife. My knife's blade was dull and placed in in the block slightly crooked. The tip curves back slightly to the right. Bottom line it's crooked. It should have never left the r Murphy facility like this. I expect more from an American company. It is a twenty dollar knife but its the principle. Mora would stomp this blade any day hands down for the same money. I own Murphy's camp knife as well and it's a jewel. Love it. Bottom line: get your QC under control if you expect serious users to buy your blade. Highly disappointed. Would not buy again.
