A couple of the reviewers thought that the sheath wasn’t very good in securing this knife. One reviewer mentioned that the sheath wouldn’t bite the knife hard enough; it wasn’t held in strongly. Also one reviewer thought that maybe the Kraton handle will not hold up after awhile. The person who scored this the lowest score of 1 did not like it since his knife came in wherein the edge went beyond the grip. He found this to be very dangerous as a user. In addition, he also noted that the knives were made in Taiwan and not in the United States.
This is a survival knife that we believe will serve the purposes that you need. It’s a good knife to have at home for some heavier duties than usual and it’s also a great knife to take with you when you leave the comforts of your house. This can handle heavy tasks such as chopping wood, meat, and more. We believe that this knife comes with great value and it will be one that you can’t live without.
