Black as a moonless night, silent as the grave. these are the qualities that make up our new lightweight Nightshade series. Most are detailed reproductions of existing Cold Steel favorites and some are new designs representing the newest trends in high-tech, covert construction. Made from Griv-Ex the latest in fiberglass reinforced plastic, and stronger than even the super tough Zy-Ex we have used in earlier models they are UV and heat stabilized, making them impervious to the elements. One of the most unique features of these knives is their handles. They are made from deeply checkered Kray-Ex that has been molded directly to the blade tangs. The use of Kray-Ex in knife handles is a Cold Steel innovation that dates back to the early 1980's. It has been readily copied by most of our competitors because it offers a superior, slightly tacky gripping surface that is unaffected by heat, cold, or moisture. It never rusts, warps, cracks or splits even in the most extreme environments.
Many of innovative cutlery company Cold Steel's most popular knives, including this Leatherneck-SF, are now available in safe, rubberized trainer editions.

I did about five hours of Airsoft the other day and I actually used the knife to get two people out! This knife is very good! I use it with my spring Sig Sauer P226, so pistol in one hand knife in other.
I have now gotten about ten or so people out with this knife. It's really a good knife, especially for anyone with a gas blowback pistol. I know have a GBB M9A1 pistol and use it with this, it's comforting to know that if my pistol runs out of ammo I can always maim the guy.
It will hurt if someone throws it at you! the tip is not pointed, and it only flexes about 1/2" (at the tip) and has a very solid feel, (feels like hard plastic).
I have dropped it, thrown it swung it and more, and it still maintains it's original shape!
it is also very well balanced, the weight of the handle it about that of the blade.
All around a good knife for training or airsoft!
It has almost the same length of a Ka-Bar marine knife. About half of weight, and the blade, including the tip, and the back are very thick, and apparently it does not fit any of the two sheath in the photo. So it looks pretty safe as you are not likely to cause harm to yourself or someone else with it.
The plastic feels robust, but is not hard plastic (as in some review says). In fact, you can bend the blade quite a bit, and it won't break.
The handle, though it is plastic too, can well simulate the feel of the Ka-Bar marine leather handle. It's non-sticky, kind of slippery, just exactly the same fraction of the Ka-Bar knife, and it is good.
The only improvement I can think of, is the weight. If some sand or metal is mixed, it may feel heavier.
