Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife I have this knife already for about a month and it's served me well in many applications . I do lots of camping, fishing ,and hunting. While outdoors its a very good knife for chopping down small trees, cutting rope ,the knife keep a very good grip when it's wet , the knife comes very sharp and ready to be used ,and it has many more uses for the outdoors men. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great knife Very well built, with a beautiful design. I took advantage of having it "engraved" with my name and somewhat regret that as it was not really engraved. Engraving generally involves penetrating the metal to effect a design or words, with this knife SOG chose to only remove the colorant so the words would show up. One thing further, the size that the name was printed in took up half the size of the blade and looks entirely over sized making it look "horsey". It should have been smaller and only on the top half of the blade that is flat. So much for my rants on the aesthetics, the knife itself is a work of art and would highly recommed it, just don't have it "engraved".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finely crafted blade I have really not used this knife yet and so can't really give a full review - but I can say it is a finely crafted and beautiful blade that feels right in the hand and I am proud to own it - I have a fairly large collection of custom knives and I can say it ranks right at the top of my list of fine knives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and feel The feel of the knife is exceptional. I usually wrap the handles of my fixed blades with 550 cord to custom fit my hand but this knife is perfect. The blade grind and coating impressed me. The sheath is a great fit and the additional clip included provides me an option I did not expect.
