My go-to
I bought this knife around 18 months ago. This is still one of my favorites and for the price you cant beat it. When it arrived the only problem was out of the box the knife was rather dull. I am a knife nut and know proper sharpening techniques so this doesnt bother me. After having the knife for about 2 months the sheath broke. There is a rivit holding a rubber-like support inside the fabric. This ripped out and I had to improvise to make it work again. The knife gets used for every task imaginable and its edge holds well for it being 440c. The camo pattern is still fully visible and scratches are at a minimum. The tanto design is my personal preference for larger fighting style knives so thats a big plus. The sawtooth-like edges along the back are useless. Overall this is a great knife with alot of potential in the right hands to conquer any situation.

Good self defense/outdoor knife
I got this knife because of it great look and collecting reasons. My first impression was a very solid knife made of a very thick piece of steel thus indistructible. The knife is very heavy and might be a great chopper/stabber for wood (or even self defense). The sheath is very robust and comes with a - in my opinion - low budget sharpener, which will do in case of need. The negative aspect was definitely the blade sharpness out of the box, partly the weak quality of the handle finish which was a bit unsymetrical and the handly ergonomy (which is horrible). I had to redo the edge of the blade with some arcansas stone (which was quite easy), now the edge is insane. All in all I would recommend this knife if you are not afraid of laying hands on the edge directly after the buy and a not very ergonomic handle.

S&W Homeland Security Tanto Combat, 8" fixed blade knife
After years of using premium grade tools I find this one lacking the sharpness and edge I prefer. Even after honing and polishing the edge it lacked the sharpness I desire. It is sharp and holds it's edge extremely well. The point is very tough and pierces objects extremely well. The edge is best suited for chopping and not slashing. However, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near a slashing stroke of this knife as it's heft and rouged edge will cut deeply. I still haven't found a use for the faux serrations/saw? on the back edge of the knife. It is certainly not a saw or rasp. It may play some part in demolition if the blade is rocked up/down and back, but I don't know. It is a very solid, reliable, and comfortable tool. I love the weight and feel of it in my hand. I use it for the most rugged and potentially damaging tasks that I would hesitate to do with my other knives in anything but a life and death situation. It's priced very economically and I keep it on hand as a go-to tool and therefore, I'm not worried about damaging in normal use, it if that's possible. I read negative reviews about the sheath, but I think it is a good sheath and perfect for this type of knife. If you want a quick draw defensive knife you will need a different sheath as this one hold the knife firmly and comfortably. One last thing -- I think it looks great!
