The sheath is a drawback, as mine doesn't quite fit snugly enough, and slides around ever so slightly, just enough to be mildly annoying if you have it in your pocket. No big deal though, especially if you have it in a pack or in a drawer or wherever. The blade itself is a quality little tool, and even though it has limited actual uses, I am still glad to have this one in my "arsenal of blades".
The Remora seems to get less respect than it deserves. For some reason people always compare it to the Becker Necker or the Izula or XYZ neck knife. Compared to these, the Remora seems a bit smallish. I argue that its diminutive size is its best trait. Give a non-knife person a Becker Necker, and watch as the Becker Necker collects lint in the back of a sock drawer. Give the same person a Remora, along with the keychain recommendation, and watch as the non-knife person discovers the utility of having a knife available at all times.
Besides, compared with a Victorinox Recruit, for example, the blade is pretty burly. Compared with the best selling knife of all time, the Victorinox Classic, the Remora starts to resemble a crowbar.
There are faults, however. The sheath is much maligned. It does look and feel a bit cheap (though it is extremely low profile, unlike the ESEE Izula, and especially unlike the Becker Necker and the BRKT Bravo Necker). The steel is 440A, which usually means relatively poor edge-holding abilities, though I have not noticed any difference in this regard between the Remora and my 1095 Izula. My biggest complaint is the design oh the handle. . . it's fine for occasional use, but not very comfortable beyond that.
Summary: This knife is best compared with folding pocket knives rather than with larger fixed blades, and it works extremely well when attached to a keychain and used within reason.
The only thing I didn't like was the "neck sheath" it came with but I'm reviewing the knife not the sheath and I don't intend on using it anyway. It will ride piggy back on the larger BK. I just also got the big, BK9 so I'll probably order another one of these to go with that knife. The only other thing I may do with this is paracord wrap the handle to give it a better grip. It meets it's intended use as a companion knife to the bigger BK's to do the small jobs that they would be too unwieldy to accomplish. It is what it is.

Just received my KaBar Remora and it is now made with 1095cv steel not the 440a they were made with . Read morePublished 3 days ago by lilygirl
Wow, this little knife is not only sharp, it fits in the BK9 piggyback sheath perfectly. Now I've got a knife to do the really fine work right with my big survival knife. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Wrango
This little knife fills a niche - in the sheath for either the Becker Combat BK#9 or the Machax BK#4.
