I happen to love mine. Best $150 ever spent for a knife. Probably the BEST knife EVER MADE for that price. A lot bigger and stronger than you might expect - VERY STOUT. I love the fact that it's not too heavy. It is a real solid work horse that can and will, serve as a multi-purpose blade. It's thin enough to filet fish, and cut grass, small vegetation and branches. It is long enough and thick enough, to serve as a small machete, and will chop wood real well - for shelter or firewood. It is an all around awesome survival knife, that you'd expect Tarzan to be carrying. I don't see how anybody would be disappointed with theirs - unless of course they disliked LARGE blades. I want to buy another, just incase anything ever happens to mine (confiscated, stolen, etc.). I would go through a lot of troublee TRYING to break mine - doubt if I could. The Kydex sheath it comes with is AWESOME, and gotta be worth $60 by itself.
