I just picked up one of these with the double edge cheap at a local gun show. I know they have been out for a few years now but I can't seem to find many comments about them on the forums. As a LEO I think this knife fits the bill, It's big, strong, well made and not to expensive. I realize it has a 425M blade and I've been spoilt by ATS34 and 440V, but I can get an edge on it that will shave very easily, how long it stays there is another thing but it's quick to sharpen. I also have a single edge Covert and the precison on both knives is extremely good for a factory knife. The Combat also seems to have bronze alloy washers(?) instead of plastic ones which is a nice feature, adding to the overall brute strength of this knife. As a dependable, strong knife for LEO work I can't fault it. Also, the late Rex Applegate explains very logically the benefits of this type of blade/handle combo in his books.It seems to me that there are a lot of knives on the market claiming to be tactical self defense knives but most of them are no more than glorified pocket knives. Has anyone else had experience with this knife and what are your thoughts.
