For the cost it's perfect!

1. If you don't know if you want a bush crafting blade, or a combat blade, or a blade to beat on and abuse all day long. Then buy this blade.
2. If you don't know whether you should spring f0r a Kydex sheath on one of your other knives, buy this blade to see how you would like a Secure-Ex knife. I love that sheath by the way. I took off the belt loop by just unscrewing it. Now it just sits in the sheath next to my computer.
3. If you like your Ka-Bar Fighting knife. but want something with a better blade shape, then get this knife.
4. If your thinking of getting a Ka-Bar Fighting knife, then get this one instead.
Are there better blades out there? Of course, but this one serves so many purposes. Combat, Chopping, Splitting, inexpensive. It's just the most usable mid sized blade I have ever bought.
For $50 I have never been happier with a purchase of my knife.
Edit: Amazon is confused about their description confirmed by Cold Steel. All Full Flat Ground LeatherNeck's are in fact SK-5. I might order myself a second one of these bad boys. The Hollow Ground version's are all 4115 German Stainless Steel. For clarity, there is no such thing as SK-5 high German 4116 Stainless Steel, amazon in it's confusion has list both metals together as one name which is incorrect.
Edit: So sad, I think that all the Amazon sellers are advertising Sk-5 steel and selling only 4116 Crap steel.......Just a heads up, the knife I reviewed is not the knife that is being sold.
