    Sturdy little knife, but not easily unsheathed.

    Posted by Robert in Texas on 13th Jan 2017

    - Very positive lockup in the sheath
    - Kydex sheath with slots for attaching to PALS
    - Full tang blade
    - Hard but cheap steel
    - Very corrosion resistant
    - Strap cutter

    - Lockup is almost too good. PITA to remove from sheath, especially with wet hands.
    - Blade steel is inferior for a knife, but is very corrosive resistant, which is good.

    This is a sturdy little knife. It is smooth edge on one side, and a section of about 1" that is serrated on the other. It also has a strap cutter, which did cut through some 550 cord fairly well, but I did not test it against any of my spare webbing. The blade references SS 420 J2, which is a pretty inexpensive stainless steel. On the upside the steel is very corrosion resistant, so it can get wet, chemical spills, salt water, and not rust up like a bucket of bolts. It's also a very hard steel, so the knife should not break easily. That said, it's rare to find in a good knife.
    However, I didn't buy this knife because I wanted a Benchmade, I wanted a short blade sturdy knife that I could pry stuff open, break/cut things. So the steel characteristics work well for that. I will attach this to some PALS webbing on my chest rig.
    One last comment. As stated in my review heading, it can be a little difficult to quickly unsheath. especially with big fingers. Basically you'll use your thumb to release pressure on the detent plate and the knife releases. You'll need to install it on your PC or chest rig with the belt clip on the outside (Which I'm sure you will remove, I did mine.) and then you'll have good access to unsheathe the knife.
    All in all I'd recommend this knife in your kit as a backup or as a knife you want to do the dirty work with (not dirty as in wet, but dirty as in prying open something, using it as a screwdriver etc.). I would not use this as my primary goto blade in my kit.
