Not for me
Scott B.
I purchased this knife and carried it horizontally on my belt in a kydex sheath I ordered. It's definitely small and is easy to carry discreetly, but so is a quality, small folder in the pocket. I purchased the G10 scales which helped the handle purchase but its way too small for me for a fixed blade, or even a small folder.
In my opinion a fixed blade is a knife for harder use than you'd expect from a folder. This knife is heavy duty and durable, although the small blade and handle isn't conducive to heavy duty tasks. I really couldn't justify carrying this over, or in addition to a folder. I ended up giving this away to a relative. He has the same feeling and would rather carry a folder over this.
