Only thing I do not like is the handle grip. The length is great for my large hands BUT it is slippery. No grip at all. I'll have to modify it somehow.
Besides the handle issue, this is a great knife overall. Just wish there was more grip on the handle. Cold Steel could've/should've thought of that and put a better handle on.
Pros: Next thing to indestructible, finger choil (indent) at bottom of blade is useful for fine detail work, cross guard makes it nice for stabbing into objects. Sheath is is one of the best I have ever seen on a knife, holds securely and has a nylon snap retention strap at top of handle.
I have been a fan of cold steel for a number of years, with this being on of the first knives that i had purchased made by them. While this knife if far from perfect, it does nicely fit the niche of strong, durable, budget knife with a great drop down sheath. If you are looking for a heavy duty chopper, that needs only occasional TLC in the form of sharpening then this is your knife.
As mentioned above the handle scales leave a little to be desired and while some may want the complete package they are fairly easy to modify with a little sandpaper and some glue. The issues i had with mine were two fold; the scales shifting in my hand and a few hot spots that made heavy work uncomfortable. Simply remove the screws on either side, put a small amount of water on the metal side and gorilla glue on plastic side (thin coat in the middle) screw back together and let sit for 24 hours. Clear any excess glue with sandpaper as well as sanding down any hot-spots. Alternately you could do a pracord wrap, which should be fairly easy with cross guard at the base of the blade.
I'm not a knife "collector" so I don't have a big number of other knives to compare this to, but I do have many years of outdoor hiking and camping experience (and am an Eagle Scout) but it's as good as you're ever likely to get at twice the cost.
This knife is impressively constructed, razor sharp upon arrival, and should last a lifetime if cared for. I like the dull black finish on it, and the sheath is also well made. For some, the only "downside" is that maybe it looks a little "too" bad-ass. I mean, it's not exactly friendly looking- but for many that will be exactly the idea! Still, you won't want to be sitting on your porch whittling with this thing, unless your porch is off a cabin way out in the country, or you'll scare off any passers-by.
I haven't put it really heavy "survival" level usage, but for regular camping activities like trimming wood for a fire, clearing brush, sharpening stakes and the like it works better than any I've owned!
