    Working as a field scientist, I need my carry to be very durable. The sheath is very sturdy. The knife holds an excellent edge and can be sharpened so well that you can use it as a straight razor. Definitely recommend it.

    Perfect Size Pocket Knife

    Very nice knife and good quality. It has a nice sharp edge, but I have not used it just yet. I’m sure the knife will serve its purpose.

    Fantastic knife and sheath. Out of the box sharp as heck, and smells great. Even under daily work use, the friction retention has not lost any strength. Very satisfied, and the price is great.
