Ka-Bar Can Do Better
I was not impressed with this knife, and I was even less impressed with Ka Bar's quality control. The first knife I received was completely dysfunctional in that the lock did not even engage, so the blade just flopped around when opened. I sent it back to Ka Bar and they sent me a new one, this one locked but just barely. The lock failed with the slightest pressure on the back of the blade, making it practically useless. Apart from this problem the knife simply wasn't very well designed. The handle is overly large for such a small blade, and there is a notch where the blade meets the handle that makes cutting tasks tedious. Frankly, the only good things about this knife are the G-10 scales, and that it's fairly easy to open. You can do a lot better for just a few more dollars, but even at this price this isn't a good choice.
