Pros: Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
hard to remove from sheath
Not sure how the blade is yet, It has the hardest sheath to remove. The way it clips in is super secure but when I try to take the blade out I feel like i'm going to break the sheath into 2 pieces before I can extract the knife. Also concerned about how it'll secure after it's been pried open the 1st time. Anyone else have this issue? I have the CUB master folding version of this knife and it's one of my 3 favorite knives at the moment. (out of about 50)

Cons: Blade Sharpness, Weight
Update to previous review
What I wrote in my first review were just the first impressions of the knife... It was too heavy, it pulled down my pants all the time... An other thing I did not like was the sharpness of the blade. It dulled out fairly quick and because of the blade angle and the shape, it was really hard to touch up. On the other hand the sheath was excellent! Overall it is a great knife with just a few flaws...

Best EDC!!!!
I bought this knife as an EDC knife (before I looked at he Norwegian rules which does not allow these knives) It is sharp, gives a good grip and the sheath is superb! The only thing I was shocked about is the weight. When you attach it to your pants, you will not feel a thing, but it is pretty heavy compared to other knives.
