Excellent little lightweight knife. 76 grams in the sheath (after removing the belt loop) makes this a great little pocket fixed blade or lightweight backpacking knife. I can also attest to the toughness of the 3V steel as I dropped it on a tile floor, my own stupid mistake, and the edge only rolled at one spot. Many other steels would have chipped when run this hard (HRC of 60 is what most people seem to think Cold Steel have on their 3V). It's not a perfect knife though. The grind on the secondary bevel is not perfect and it appears to have a very slight recurve at the sharpening choil. The kratom handle is comfortable and very utilitarian , but it does seem to have a small gap around the blade tang that could collect some residue from food etc. I don't expect this to be real problem, although it is a slight annoyance.
