I received this last night and immediately was curious about the knife and tore into the package. I wanted a good size knife for camp duties and for utility purposes and with a 7" blade this certainly fits the bill. Anything bigger I don't think would be practical for most jobs.
It looks cool (not that that should really matter....but it kinda does) It cam pretty sharp. A few minutes sharpening the knife and I could shave the hair on my leg. I walked around with the knife on my property and hacked on a tree, chopped up a card board box in the trash....it worked like a champ. Very sturdy.The grip is rubberized and comfortable. It has a glass break knob on the pommel that, based on the heft of the knife, outght to work like a champ. While it has some weight, its full tang design is well balanced and well suited for anything reasonable (or not) youd need to do with a knife. I have used Buck knives before and I doubt this would hold up as well or hold an edge as well but this bad boy is almost a third of the cost of a buck knife and I think the hande and weighting and blade are comparable based on the price.
Cons: The 3 gripes of other reviewers are absolutely correct but 2 are basically quibbles. The goofy squared of seration on the top of the knife has no discernible purpose and the sandpaper like inserts on the handle (which didn't impact anything from my test use) is kind of a head scratcher. I might be able to file my nails on it. The sheeth on this has gotten a lot of bashing and I get why. THe basic sheeth is just that...its nylon and without an insert, the life expectancy on the sheeth (with heavy use) would probably be short. Not a big deal for the price point. But that velcro strap at the top of the sheeth to hold in the knife....that thing well and truly sucks. It looks like it won't survive for long and is irritating to use and looks bad.
The sheeth is kind of a big deal so I debated between a 4 and a 5 star rating but the knife is such a great value, I chose to overlook the sheeth issue and the other minor stuff. If things change...I'll post an update,
Added a deck of playing cards for size comparison.
The sheath is a little classier looking than the older style sheaths, because it says mtech on the little leather patch which is more subtle than the red mtech logo and the older style sheaths. The downside to this sheath is there are no rivets, the older style sheaths had a few rivets in addition to the stitching. This sheath has what looks like cardboard liners on the sides to keep the knife from cutting thru the sheath, the older style had plastic liner. This sheath is not double stitched, the older style was double stitched around the blade. Belt loop is narrower on this sheath than the other 2 mtech knives. I suppose I like the older style sheath but I haven't worn the knives yet on any belts so hard to say how it would work out.
The knife is made of 440c stainless steel, and has held up extremely well. The handle is made of a grippy hard plastic rubber, and the inlays are a sandpaper tape, similar to what you find around pools and in diving boards. It feels very secure in your hand, even in wet conditions.
I couldn't be happier with this purchase, I will probably buy a few more as gifts.
The sheath is nicely double stitched, with a band that has a solid snap to hold the knife in it. I think this is going to be a good addition to my quiver.
