I bought the 51 as a survival knife for a kit. Later I took it out and practiced some bushcraft with it so that I knew what I was working with.

The knife is extremely heavy and robust, with 1/4" blade stock and a larger-than-necessary handle. The ergos are fine except for in the choil, because the edges of the riasso are a bit sharp on the corners.

The handle is fine otherwise, nicely shaped. The little hook at the back helps with chopping, giving you more leverage, but definitely gets in the way when doing chest-lever grips.

The blade is sort of awkwardly short for how long the handle is. It comes sorta sharp but definitely needs work for finer cutting. It won't carve much, unless you really thin out the bevel. And even then... This knife is more of a chopper.

The sheath is garbage. The nylon is extremely low quality, the velcro is trying to kill itself, and the pocket is next to useless. For some reason they put this weird elastic band on which the velcro is sewn, so you can't open the pocket very well without bracing the elastic part. Kinda stupid.

All in all, I wish I had originally purchased something more... focused. This knife doesn't carve well, is too heavy, but too short to chop or baton very effectively. For the money you could get a mora and something like a kershaw camp 10. These two will take care of all of your carving, chopping, and batoning needs for less money. They both have proper sheathes too, although you won't get a dinky sharpening stone or ferro rod with either of those.
