I think it's heavy for its size, but in a good way.

I also tried to loosen up the hinge, and it didn't really do anything...I think I'm just going to have to break it in to make it smoother.

You can now see the wear mark in my jeans from the knife, but I dont mind cause this thing couldnt be better.

This knife has done me good for over 2 years. I have used it for everything from making some sharp sticks in the woods to opening boxes or cutting thick straps holding tires together. I just sharpened it for the first time and its back to new. I have carried this in my right hand pocket of my jeans. You can now see the wear mark in my jeans from the knife, but I dont mind cause this thing couldnt be better.

Yes its made in Taiwan, but I dont mind stuff made there it China I cant stand. nothing has broken, but the action of opening and closing has gotten a tad rough. Some small amount of gun lube actually fixed the issue.

I will take this knife everywhere I go camping, shooting, fishing, ect....

Over all I give this knife a good to go!

Yes this knife series is a little on the heavy side (around 5.5 ounces) but if that isn't as important as toughness is to you, you will like this knife.
I first bought the Hawks Bill Tanto straight edge version and was happy with that so I bought the drop point version. Plan on reprofiling your blade. They seem to come ground around 25 degrees on one side and 20 on the other. I've been sharpening to a 20degree(40 inclusive) angle.
These knives are well made . They have bronze phosphor washers,excellent lock up,I find them easy to deploy(though I have faster knives).
I bought these two mainly for my collection though I will probably carry the hawks bill from time to time defensively.
They are climbing in price. Only Amazon has them in the $20 range. They seem to average around $43 but I've seen them as high as $65. At those price points there are better or more useful knives out there , so grab one for $20 while you can.

This knife is tuff! Will cut through anything and the handle will cup into your hand so if you need to make a stabbing motion, the knife won't slip. I think it's heavy for its size, but in a good way. It feels right in your hand. You can change the side and direction of the belt-clip easily.

** This is a knife I've been interested in for well over a year, but couldn't quite justify the prices I saw for it, when compared to other knives costing about the same. I kept tabs on it, though, because I really like the looks of it (and because I trust Ka-Bar quality); so when I found it on Amazon for under $20, I jumped for it.
** I'd like to say the knife was perfect, or at least near perfect; and that's what I fully expected. (Did I mention trusting Ka-Bar quality?) Instead, on the first day I had it, it seemed to jam in the open/locked position. (I'll get to why I said "seemed.") Anyway, it was open, and -- after I had already closed it one-handed several times with no drama and no great difficulty -- I couldn't close it one-handed. I tried using two hands, and no luck.
** I got authorization to return it to Amazon for a refund. Then, while it was on its way back to Amazon, I decided I would go ahead and risk an exchange for a new knife of the same model. Launched a chat session with an Amazon representative, who not only got the transaction changed from "refund" to "replace" (or exchange) -- but also triggered a shipment of the replacement before they had the original knife back -- AND also upgraded the shipping! I was amazed (and impressed).
** The replacement arrived today, and the very first time I opened it, it also seemed to jam with the blade open and locked. This time, though, I was able to unlock the blade simply by exerting a bit more effort -- more effort than I think it should take, but still WAY better than not getting it unlocked at all. Now, back to the first knife: Could I have unlocked it with a bit more effort? I don't know. I do know I put considerably more force (pressure on the locking tab/finger) than this second knife requires.

Love this knife......it's cheap!i got mine for 25$ about 5 months ago or so.this knife is simple and sturdy. The frame lock is really stiff at first but it gets better as time goes on. The coating on the blade and handle are still Un scratched.the blade is really beefy too.

this is a very solid knife. it was delivered super quick. i have two gripes though. these were also expressed by other reviewers. the knife is made very very sturdy and has cut through some really rough materials. that being said, did they need to emboss on the knife that its made in Taiwan. I dont know, it just takes something away from the knife since its a ka-bar. also, the locking mechanism is very stiff and is a bit of a pain to fold the knife up. that in itself is both good and bad. its good because you know the knife wont fold back while you are putting it through its paces. however, when you want to close it the knife almost cuts my finger trying to press in the side rail.

The serrated version of this is currently in use in Afghanistan, and the individual is very pleased with it and hasn't managed to break it yet. I purchased it and used it for a while, but a friend of mine mentioned he didn't have a pocket knife when he was in town on mid-tour leave. Since he was only in for a short time and we didn't have time to order a really nice knife for him, I just gave him what I had in my pocket. He's been beating the heck out of it for several months now and hasn't broken it yet, and at this price point, that's a really glowing review. I had bought the straight blade one as well, that's what I'm carrying now, and I think the serrated one is the better choice.
