Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: None
Very nice knife!
This will be my hiking/camping knife. I can't wear it legally in CA in a concealed manner, but I'm hoping it will be perfect as outerwear with a backpack strap to help constrain it. The whistle works great - very loud. The sheath is snug and the knife doesn't bang around in it. The chain seemed a little wimpy - I replaced it with paracord, which fit nicely in the holes. It seems secure, gripping by compression of the sheath onto the blade itself, in the area of the jimping, and with the sheath notch that matches the tab built into the knife handle. Whether it will stay tight in the long run - only time will tell. The blade came sharp out of the box. The jimping is a little rough, you can tell where the die cut is in the jimping area, but for the price, this seems a minor issue. The jimping is sharp and grippy, but shouldn't cut your fingers or thumb. Knifecenter.com got the knife to me quickly - very happy with the service!

Great Knife!
For the price, I was't expecting much. But this S&W knife is awesome. Super sharp outta the box. Nice and light, it is comfortable on the neck. It has become my daily carry knife and can't wait to use it when fishing saltwater. I really like the kydex sheath as I think it will work better as anti-corrosion insurance in saltwater than my leather sheathed "fishing" knives. And, Knife Center's customer service is tops! Somehow, On my PIA smart@$$ phone, I had made the same order twice. I had very fast response on the 800. And shipping is faster than any internet merchant I've dealt with.......Thanks, Kife Center! I have no complaints.

Good Functional Knife For D-fense
I had one of these years ago and used in self defense outside my home after jumped by two guys. Was 440C steel at the time and took a great edge. With one slash across a fist, sent one guy to the hospital for two repairable surgeries. Other guy had to get rib cage stitched up after a poke thru a winter coat after trying to tackle me. Police arrested both of them. Secure sheath and quick access. Works fine for Self-defense. This is a knife with a basic profile that will serve for slashing and penetration.
