Couldn't be more than happy, arrived very quick. This is a must have, I say get one now before they sell out again. I recommend it. Came in very stiff when I got it, did not open all the way, the best thing to do is clean it, oil it, work'em out. That's a good way to loosen them up. Over all I'm happy with this knife, razor sharp out of the box, good edge, nice cutting hook, tight safety, polymer handle, the bail loop does not get in the way, best of all made in USA, this is a military issue knife for pilots and emergency survival conditions. I'm happy with my purchase a great company to do business with and will always buy from again.
