I just got one of these today and am very happy with it. Anybody else have one? What do you think?

hello jim - i also have one of the nealy/boker "specialist" knives. it is quite nice. i like the mcs system - it has something for everyone. the magnets make it a smooth draw. the only thing i don't like about this knife is the lack of a guard. it does work well to press your palm into the butt of the handle when stabbing however. how have you been carrying yours?
