This is my go to cmaping/hiking fixed blade. I have used it for years and never had any problems with it. It is strong and can take some abuse. It's pretty sharp and can take an edge pretty well, except where the blade recurves. That's the only thing I don't like about this knife. Other than the recurve, this knife is amazing. The sheath is nice. It has several ways to strap it on. It comes with a little sharpening stone, which can come in handy. The sheath has a plastic liner so the blade won't cut it or anything. I've never had a problem with rust with this knife. It's light weight but solid. It feels really good and can be used for almost any task.
