I EDC this.
Kyle K.
You may think its not practical at all, but it is. It takes up no space on my belt line and only the loop sticks out. Mine came with a deep carry clip. The blade steel is 440C and does not hold the finest edge.The sheath is nice with a small profile, holds the knife well but isnt tight enough to pull the sheath out when drawing the knife. I wouldn't tell you to pry with this knife, But its solid, never chipped on me and I have seriously abused the heck out of this thing. I've thrown it, opened a ton of boxes, poked a few things, and even cooked with it while camping. The serrated edge is a great bonus because of the steel type. Although Benchmade has a great warranty on all their knives, I don't see a reason to send this one in for sharpening since 440c is quick and easy to sharpen yourself. The best thing is the ergonomics of this knife. You can hold other things such as a pistol, a cup or even a pencil in your hand, together with this knife securely in your hand. Great for LEO. If you can find this for a reasonable price like I did, I recommend it.
