If vou are fond of the tanto point on your knife this has the best ergos I have found. This is very slim, but there is plenty of real estate on the grip for my large paws. The butt makes a fine impact tool for a less lethal option. The sheath is very well made, but I would prefer a slimmer kydex sheath. It is AUS-8, and that may disappoint some of you. However, it is tempered quite hard, and Al Mar (Moki) knows a thing or two about steel. I wouldn't sweat it. These are sadly out of production.
