Customer Reviews

Great little boot knife
Zachary M. on Aug 27, 2020

I bought this knife after watching the boot knife video and I love it! sheath retention and clip strength are both excellent. It did not come razor sharp but being 5Cr15MoV I was able to easily get it there. Some might think the blade steel is too weak but for $35 and used as a secondary blade it will handle most jobs in a pinch.

Great knife… however
Jason T. on Oct 19, 2022

I bought this knife several years ago. Fell in love with it immediately. So many carry options, fabulous ergos, great sheath… however, the steel sucks? I can only imagine, how amazing this exact knife could be in permitting Premium materials ?. .. come on SOG
