The knife is very balanced and ergonomically designed. The grip is not only sure, it’s quite comfortable.

The sheath for this knife is cordura, and is quite rugged and durable. There are different points upon the sheath where the owner can connect cord or web. The front of the sheath has a pocket area that is great for a pocket knife, or a stone for sharpening, or a fire stick. The other great thing about the sheath is the liner. The lining of the sheath can be removed and reversed so as to accommodate right or left handed users. The strap for retention is awesome as well, and there is a second strap that has a metal snap on it. This knife when carried stays where the user puts it, and that is a good safe feature. That extra strap and snap secure the weapon nicely.

To sum it up, this is a great product. Do yourself some reading of other reviews and read up on Niolox stainless steel. It’s going to be a big thing in blade technology, and it is always nice to see a western country put out some new steel. Germany is quite good at whatever they set their mind to. So check it out.
