Pros: Overall Quality, Weight, Finish
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, None
Cool, but with major flaws
This light weight blade that Jason Brous designed is very cool. The finger holes can take some time to get used to though and the blade shape limits the overall design to certain tasks (not slicing). For the material and overall quality, the price is great.My biggest issue with this blade is the sheath and belt clip. The overall quality and design is great but there are major flaws in the design.First off the belt clip has too large of a gap. You'll notice the end of the clip does not touch the plastic sheath. The gap is so wide that a regular belt, be it nylon webbing or even leather, will have issues holding the sheath in place. I tried attaching the sheath to my belt so that it would sit on top of two layers of leather, over 1/4" thick and it seemed to solve the issue. Then came the second issue: the sheath itself. The retention was so tight, that as I was trying to pull the blade out, it would slide the sheath over, then sit against the belt buckle, continue to rotate my belt around my waist, yet still not be able to remove the blade. After repeated tries to solve this issue, I gave up and decided to return it. Blade steel is adequate for the price, overall fit and finish, including the sheath, is excellent, albeit with the major design flaw.This is unfortunate because I really like this blade. The design is interesting, I like the size and weight...but what use is a blade that I can't actually use? Please fix this SOG. Jason Brous deserves a better representation of his designs that shouldn't be brought down by issues with the sheath.
