Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Weight, None
Cons: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
This blade is made with a material that can easily lose it's edge after an extended period of use. The main aspects of the Knife vary between circumstance and use, as should be expected. However, it makes for a great camping/survival/outdoors knife as intended, but again it needs progressive sharpening. The size of the handle are slightly oversized for all users, but can give too much wiggle room on for the hand. As far as the sheath goes, it may be "leather," but the belt loop is rather oversized and the button clip on the inside of the sheath that secures the knife can rub against the blade. Despite all of's a decently priced knife and makes for a great Outdoorsman or Survivalist.

Pros: Handle Material, Weight, None
Cons: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material
Good Looking Blade
It truly is a fine looking blade and has a design that would be usefull in the field however if your tasks require a extended period of a sharp edge bring a stone along it will need to be sharpened often. For less precise tasks the weight and re curve aids in constant pressure and movement against the material, The downside to that is it's size leaving it's practical applications for smaller more precise work requiring a more manageable knife.
