The blade is made out of 1095 high carbon steel, 3/16" thick heat treated to 57-58HRC with a black powder coat finish. Each one comes with a sturdy Kydex sheath with a clip that is set up for many versatile carry positions, allowing the user to carry almost any way imaginable. Including cross draw, left, right or the small of your back. You can also run your Molle straps though it or remove the belt clip all together and lace it into gear. This knife has a positive snap in the sheath! It can be carried upside down with no worries! Makes for an excellent EDC fixed blade or, as the name suggests, backup knife in addition to your main tactical weapon.

Pros: Blade Material, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Finish, Blade Sharpness
Great little edc
This is a stout little knife, sharpens to a razor like edge and holds it well, feels beefy in hand. Small to medium hands can get a full to three plus finger grip, larger hands should get the XL model. The powder coat is a bit thick and rough, but took 600grit and smoothed powder coat finish down. I carry at 45* cross draw and don't notice I even am carrying it. I also have their bushcrafter and heavy ranger bowie(prototype) nice solid knifes as well. They came sharp, but I did not like profile so changed to my liking. I can see this company competing with the big boys in future, we will have to wait and see. I like supporting small American companies like this one. I did not buy mine from KC, sorry, but from my local knife shop. (small business) oh, the sheath is nothing fancy, but does hold securely, no problem with inverted carry.
