This knife comes painfully sharp (pun intended) out of the box. Users with larger hands may find the handle a bit small. The blade is flat-ground, making for easy re-sharpening. The blade is relatively thick for a knife of this size, which makes it a bit harder to slice foods. That said, the full tang makes this knife strong enough for many outdoor tasks. The sheath only had one carry option, which makes the knife ride a bit high on the belt; but it is small enough to put in the pocket. Overall, perhaps a bit pricey, but will probably outlast you.
