pretty much agree with the previous reviews.....

To me, this is a good knife but perhaps a bit too expensive for overall what you get. The sheath does kinda suck, and i'm glad Amazon links what other people 'look at' when they view this knife, because that's how I saw that people buy a different sheath than what's provided, and I bought that sheath too (Ka-bar sheath). Long story short, I wasn't impressed with the original sheath. As for the knife, it has a good feel, nice and solid. The knife doesn't come all that sharp, so one really needs to sharpen it further. In fact, the top part of the blade is sharper than the lower part of the blade, which to me is odd. And yes, I agree with other reviewers that the saw aspect of this knife is really lame, and should have been a serrated edge instead. Overall, i'd say it's a bit too expensive for what you get, and I wish I would have done a bit more research into knives of this style, such that maybe I would have found the perfect knife at a lower price. Just cause it's apparently a 'Navy knife', doesn't make this, to me anyway, the perfect knife. But that said, it's not like it sucks. Get the better sheath, and be prepared to sharpen it further, and if you do that, then it'll be a great knife for you, even if it seems kinda expensive to me. Hope that helps.
