Came super sharp. Was about to feather wood with it fairly easily. Chopped all weekend. Put it through good amount of abuse and it's still just as sharp.
I did manage to chip part of the black coating near the tip. About a dime's size worth. No big deal.
Wore it on my belt literally all weekend. A pain when sitting down, otherwise, no problem at all. Barely noticed it.
Was a bit weary about the unusual shape when I ordered it, but it really does help. As another reviewer says, it feels like the tool is doing half of the work because of the weight distribution and curve.
Very thick blade. I was prying things with no problem or worry.
I like that it has that little knob at the end of the handle and that it has a whole for a lanyard or paracord or something.
Sheath isn't super fancy but seems safe, secure, and durable. The belt loop is solid.
This thing is intimidating, efficient, useful, and fun. Very impressive to see and very impressive to use. Very affordable. Renowned brand. Get it. Can replace your hatched, in my opinion.
Yes the intimidation factor is huge if you are out hiking or camping and run across some strange characters that seem to appear on most every trip to the woods. This ka-bar is my constant companion on every hike from the first day it came in the mail. I give it the highest rating possible and I also agree completely that the fact it's made in Taiwan means nothing. This isn't cheap Chinese material. At a price of $45 you can't go wrong.
The Kraton rubberized handle feels good at first just handling the knife, but it will cause blisters. If you intend to chop anything big, wear gloves.
The sheath is completely functional, no real complaints, but no significant compliments. The tie-down loop at the tip of the sheath is cheap-feeling plastic and I wouldn't expect it to survive any stress.
After letting a friend chop the log and chopping another myself, I saw the edge of the blade was in real bad shape. From the apex of the belly curve to the tip, this steel appears to not be hardened-at all. I know that the point of impact for chopping should be just south of the belly apex and on a traditional kukri, this is where one would strike with the knife. It appears to be similar on this. My friend didn't know and that would explain why the blade got messed up where it did. I am in the process of re-edging this bit.
Overall, the size is excellent. Not so big that it isn't packable, not so small so as to perform poorly. Chops really well, coating stays, looks nice and, of course, is ready to slay all the zombies you'd need it to-just wear gloves.

First off, because I haven't seen any reviews mention this, you feel like a total bad*** action hero when you hold this thing.Read more
