Picked this knife up when I ordered some Flitz sword care product. Looked like a nice knife for under 10 bucks and it sure is. Mine came decently sharp with a good edge for hiking and camp use. Really solidly built. The paracord grip might be a little thick for some or slicker than what you are used to I think it's great. Like the description says, if you're looking for a good knife you won't be afraid to use this one's for you.
