I purchased one of these Cold Steel Kobun's from True Swords about three years ago and decided to give a review based on my experience with it. This is one of my favorite EDC knives, in fact, so much so that I made a professional quality, adjustable nylon shoulder harness for it (the harness will actually hold any knife with hollow rivets in its sheath). The entire knife, including the sheath has stood the test of time, and I use my EDC knives a lot. The blade hasn't much of a belly, but that doesn't hinder it from cutting enormously well which can, in part, be attributed to its deep hollow grind. It came razor sharp right out of the box. The tip is very strong because it's nearly the same width as the spine. The handle is very comfortable and I've yet to have a problem with it slipping from my hands. The hand gaurd is just large enough to prevent one's hands from sliding up the blade. The belt clip is hooked, which prevents the sheath from being pull free from a belt, boot or waist band while drawing the knife. The knife clips in and out of the sheath fairly easily, but I've no worries of it ever just falling out. Overall, it's lightweight, slender enough for concealed carry, strong, dependable and definitely a great utility knife as well as a great self defense or backup knife. TThiso top it all off, it's full tang. It's a great knife at a great price. Lyle D. Yates-Master Instructor (retired).
