Not really worth it...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Marine Drop Point Survival Knife (Misc.)
The knife itself is okay I guess in the sense that it has the right shape and has a handle and a blade, although the blade was dull upon arrival. I seriously couldn't cut the paper the invoice was printed on. The cheap rubber handle smells terrible, and the kindest thing I have to say about the sheath is that you won't cut yourself when the knife is in it (assuming you have sharpened the dull blade). I am glad I didn't spend alot of money on this, but now that I have it I highly doubt it will get much use. I would strongly recommend potential buyers to keep searching as you will most likely be as disappointed in this knife as I am.

Hard lesson learned huh? You get what you pay for, especially when it comes to survival items. Trust me when I tell you this: spend $60 on a Ka-Bar (the real knife this knock-off was modeled after). I have one and its the best knife i've ever owned (and i've owned a lot, cheap, expensive, big, small). For the money, you won't regret it.

Look at the Mora knives here on amazon. The "Mora Utility Knife"(craftline 511) is 10.50 right now, that's not the best price its been or you can get it. They're "light" duty knives, but they're tougher than they look. Super sharp with the scandi grind, but keep in mind most of them come with a micro bevel for the edge so the edge is stronger and doesn't need to be sharpened as much(found this out the hard way). Its a great light super sharp knife that can do just as much as most high priced heavy knives. The price can't be beat either, period.

I took your advice. Totally agree, it was well worth the money...
