So on the sheath: made of thick quality nylon that has a plastic insert to uphold the structure. The knife fits snug if pushed down into the plastic, but can easily be shaken out. Has a strap that secures the knife but it leaves you wanting more. With the strap locked, the knife can be pulled out about 1/8" out of the plastic insert but stays in the sheath (I glued a piece of leather across the strap to fill in the space. Worked well.). The belt loop does raise concerns since it is the same piece of material as the strap that secures the knife, but i do not carry on my belt so it wasn't a deal breaker.
At the end of the day, GREAT knife for the price and don't let the reviews of the sheath be the deciding factor on this deal!
This is a pretty good knife for the money - except - it comes with a throwaway sheath, and the handle is little weird.
The knife is well constructed and arrived sharp. I like the shape of the blade and the full tang with exposed lanyard loop. It will be a very functional knife, and I will keep it.
Now the bad.
1. Yes, the sheath is that bad. The snap is terrible. The retention of the knife is terrible; the knife can shake loose when active- as in - when you need a knife. You also need two hands to resnap after drawing the knife. There is no tab on the snap to assist opening, so it can be difficult to open quickly, or very difficult while wearing gloves.
I would like to add, that while I do not expect an artistic or phenomenal sheath with a $25 knife, I can't understand why, for the same cost, a functional sheath cannot be provided. The material costs are the same, the construction cost is virtually identical, but simply switch the placement of stitches or materials, and the sheath could be beautifully functional. I suppose the designers never use a knife, and the manufacturer never listens to user feedback. If Gerber, or other manufacturers, would pay attention, they would be accelerating instead of sliding right now.
2. The handle shape is strange. The shape is roughly triangular, and slightly bulbous at the top. I know hand fit is a personal preference, but it seems off to me, and unnatural.
3. This one is totally subjective. I feel like this knife needs a finger choil to be more useful. I think it has to do with the funny shape of the handle, but to me, it just feels like my hand wants to move forward to use the knife more finely, hence the desire for the choil.
The sheath is great, except the strap that hold the knife is a little loose.
I don't think it would fall out but it can bounce up and down.
It could be fixed though pretty easily.
I actually found out that if you twist the strap of the sheath one time before you snap it closed, it holds the knife perfectly.
Still a great knife and sheath for the money.
Perfect size for every day carry.
I am primarily using this as my field dressing knife so the sheath itself is okay but if I wanted to use this as an EDC wilderness or for work as a field guide, I would want a sheath that is more secure. The snap clip is somewhat secure but you just have to make sure that the knife is seated as far into the sheath as possible. If you carry this knife in the upright position and the knife is seated far into the sheath, you should have no problem carrying this around in the woods. The knife is just what I need/want, perhaps I will fashion a more secure sheath in the future.
