Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
If you can only buy one knife, let this be the one.
I've owned hundreds of knives, even was half owner of knife business, but if I was allowed only one knife--this would be the one! I expected the sheath to just be an "envelope" to store knife in, but the sheath was much better than sheath that came with my Benchmade Bushcrafter. I have several custom knives that came with much lower quality sheaths. Back to knife-blade very well made, sharp as the devil. Probably sharper than most weekend "outdoorsmen" should be trusted with. Love carbon steel, if a person can't clean and dry off a blade they probably don't need a knife anyway. I can live with synthetic handle, not pretty, but will outlast me. This knife will do any knife chore and more. I'm taking it on an elk hunt this fall; chosen over several very expensive models. Sure won't lose it if I lay it down. I know you don't know me but---buy one of these. They are sort of old world steel combined with new age handle material. Most importantly---will cut anything you should ever use a knife for.
