Pretty happy overall. This knife is all utility and perfect for the travel kit or the camp kit. I recommend wrapping the handle with grip tape or cord because the smooth coating is a little slippery, but for a beater knife like this I think that's splitting hairs. My only complaint is the sheath that comes with it does not fit the knife securely and should not be paired with this knife. Too bad Cold Steel didn't offer these with a Secure-Ex sheath, that would be the cat's pajamas.
