Got this knife before I went on a deployment to Afghanistan.
Price Paid: $70
Got this knife before I went on a deployment to Afghanistan. I like that it has a flat grind on it the whole way. The auto-assist blade opening makes it for a quick release of the blade.
If you're looking for a camping knife to hack on and abuse on the campsite or the trail I wouldn't recommend this one. It's extremely light weight and easy to carry. It weighs 3.4ozs. I carry it in my breast pocket on my ACU's and I forget it's even there. I think of this knife as more of a defensive blade not really so much for utility.
Great looking knife
Really sharp out of the box
Flat grind, with no serrated edges (hard to sharpen)
Easy to sharpen and holds an edge well
potential for tip to break
Overall if you're looking for a light weight knife for everyday uses and cutting then I'd recommend this knife. If you're looking for a tough blade...i.e. survival blade...I wouldn't recommend this one.
