" Scorpion( Signature) Warthog Knife !!
This knife still remains to be " field tested " !! I feel confident that the knife will pass the"test" with flying colors !! I'm not so sure about the sheath / scabbard , however !!!!! First of all , I haven't totally figured out how to use it !! Secondly, I'm already having trouble taking the knife out of and returning it to the sheath / scabbard in a smooth , flowing movement that is free of snags !! And , in the third place , I think that a knife of this quality deserves a much more distinctive and higher quality sheath and scabbard !! How about a quality genuine leather sheath ( brown or black) ??
