Ok, now that little PSA is out of the way. I can write the rest of my review. Just bought one of these (from another site) and this is an excellent addition to the Adventure line. The blade profile of this knife makes it an excellent multitasker for dressing, skinning and quartering large game. The blade is just the right size, not to small and not too big.
The handle material is the same propriety handle material as the other Adventure series knives with the same pebbled grip pattern. I have the potbelly and have used that extensively and can attest to this grip power when getting wet. The knife feels good in the hand and handles well. Also the handle color makes it easier to spot if you should happen to lay it down in leaves or at night.
The sheath is the same heavy nylon, with a plastic insert, as used in the others knives from the series and has a "stuff sack" on the front (albeit smaller than on the other knives). I've read many of the reviews for this sheath from the other knives and it seems to be a love hate thing. You either love it or hate it. For me I have always loved these sheaths. They offer a variety of carry options and are heavy duty and tough.
Now on to the blade steel, as stated above this knife is 440A SS. I have asked Ka-Bar directly and they verified this. Many sites list this as 1095CV which is wrong. Not sure why they list the wrong steel, but from what I've read in some knife forums, it may be because Ka-Bar supposedly listed the steel incorrectly in their 2013 mailer catalog. I don't get the catalog so I can't confirm this. But rest assured is is Stainless Steel.Read more ›
From the factory it was impressively sharp, and is very sturdy.
The blade width is enough for batoning as well, and I don't think it would deform in use.
The orange grips are nicely stippled which lends itself to a positive feeling in the hand.
The sheath... Meh. A too long generic sheath that I replaced with a nice leather one.
Overall, I love this knife and because of its smaller size is part of my EDC.
