I like it. 5.5" is just about ideal for a military knife. Sure a Kbar is bigger, but 5.5" is big enogh to be useful, yet small enough to fit on today's military gear and not be too obtrusive. Spearpoint is always a good choice, but I'd like to see a 2-3" swedge on the top edge. For style if nothing else. Regardless, I'd carry that anywhere.
