For the money, I think a SOG 2K is a good buy. There are a few things to say though:
The guard is non existant...I gave my brother who is a hunting nut a SEAL 2K and he loves it, but the guard doesn't protect the fingers like a guard is made to do.
He has had a few "accidents" because of this.
The heat treat, IMO, is excellent. It is 440A steel but the Seki ht is well done. And the steel, being .25 thick, is strong enough to handle most you can dish out...
The sheath is very well made. A good sheath is a must and the kydex sheath that comes with the SEAL 2K is a perfect example of a "great" sheath.
The handle is well made but lacks comfort. The handle is square, which makes chopping uncomfortable. The handle is, however, almost indestructible...
That's about all I have to say. Overall, there are better knives but for the money ($90.oo) this is a good choice, IMO.
