Pros: Finish, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material
Great knife
The reason I give this knife a 4 is for the handle material and the sheath both are not very functional . but after sharpening the knife and using it a little , I really like the knife and size . it sharpens very well and polishes the edge easier than the knifes that I have that are made from s30v. As far as edge holding ability don't know yet but both s35 vn and s30v have required me to use diamond stones to sharpen them . seems like the s35vn sharpened a little easier if it was'nt for the handle material and sheath I would give it a 10. I had a different sheath made for it so I could pack it on my left side while hunting . this is a very good knife and the price is a lot less than most other knifes made with S35vn.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Great knife in a 100 yr Old Sheath
The knife is great and would have been concealable if Snody had spent 5 minutes thinking about this. Bud Nealy showed everyone 20 years ago what kydex can provide for concealability! But this was has a large, thick leather sheath as if everyone out there is gone to use it for "whitlin". I guess have to buy a custom kydex sheath.
