Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
One of the best
This deserves a 7 out of 5 rating. The fit and finish of this knife is impeccable. The blade is sharp, epoxy powder coating on the blade is smooth and not ugly and rough like OKC knives. The knife pommel/guard is unwavering; the butt cap is rock solid; the blade is full tang construction, just over 1/6th of an inch thick and which eases your mind because it can take a beating not fall out of the handle or brake or something else. It's well balanced, an absolute workhorse. No wonder this is one of the most widely used knives today among our military and American citizens alike. The handle is made of a beautiful leather for a classic style and great grip. I have to clear something up; as most reviewers were disappointed when they found out the sheath was made in Mexico, I'll agree so was I. I do agree with others when they say a knife of this quality should have an American made quality sheath. Truthfully, this sheath is gorgeous, sturdy, and will handle very well if maintained with some sno-seal, neatsfoot oil, etc. I have come to learn that the Mexicans are very well renowned for their leather goods, and it is a very nice sheath.
