I have used my SEAL 2000 extensively. It has handled everything from chopping to digging to prying to (obviously) cutting just about anything. It used to be my primary field knife. The blade finish will wear off after a few years of use. My only dislikes are the following:
1) The nylon sheath sucks. I guess the new ones have a kydex model. That would be far and away better than the nylon version.
2) I dislike the handle, and it's lack of a decent guard. I still have a serious scar on my hand from a "slide-off-the-handle-onto-the-blade" incident years ago.
All in all, I think it's a great knife for the money. I've never had any problems with corrosion, even with saltwater exposure.
