Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
So, my first impression was "this is a really sturdy knife". Then I put it in it's sheat and removed it again, and there was already scratches in the pain. The pain has since fallen off in many places, nothing that is visible when it's sheated but still a minor issue. The thing I reacted most to, however, was that it felt really dull straight out of the box. But that's also a minor issue, as the weight compensated for that. Granted, it's not a knife you use for finer carpentry, but as a makeshift axe it's perfect. I'm a professional truckdriver, and ever-so-often I encounter issues in my work with stuck trainer-doors, jammed locking-mechanisms and that sort of things. To have the TAC TOOL at hand is really helpfull, as it is pryer, hammer, and cutter in one unit. However the description "quickly cut '550 cord'" isn't really accurate in any way, shape or form. Atleast it wasn't for me. For me it was (straight out of the box, mind you) more like "file the cord for 5 minutes until it finally snaps, frailed ends and all". Also, the sheat is just a little too hard to make it possible to dra the knife quickly.
