Giving it 5 stars because my friend got a tighter sheath though mine was loose, i think it was a fluke. It was pretty easy to righten with some glue and a cedar shim. Hands down the BEST jambiya on the market both in looks and functionality. Have to learn the trick of resheathing it properly since it has that sudden curve. Also the sharpening was rather good. Would have put a more thin edge on it myself rather than a second bevel but at the size here, its just as good. Contemplating buying another one for modification.
