This is a great knife. Made in America, sturdy build, came in very sharp. Highly recommended!

Got this knife yesterday. And It is an amazing knife and very cheap for a KA-BAR. It is a bit smaller than I was expecting but it's still a decent size. It's about as long as my forearm. As previously stated, The sheath is not the best quality. It's very hard to move around and getting clasp to button together takes a few tries. But once you loosen it up it's fine. I will probably buy a new, better sheath from trueswords. Overall, a great buy for a great knife.

I just got this today, and it is KING!!! The blade is razor edged and super sharp. The handle is perfect for fighting or anything else you can think of to use it for. The sheath it comes with is a good quality sheath, but needs a bit of a break in period. All in all a great buy. This will be a great CCW knife.

A good knife over all, aside from the fact that the sheath that it comes with took a little breaking in before use, and it was shorter than I had anticipated, but that makes it easier to wield and carry. The handle has good grip, and both the tip and blade are razor sharp; When I got it I tested it by cutting paper. It shipped rather quickly. In fact, it came a day earlier than I had expected, along with a TrueSwords poster for some reason... This piece of work is well worth your $39.99.
