This is, by a long shot, the all-around best knife on the market, and has been my favorite for the last 25 years... and you can't beat the price. Obviously this is only one person's opinion, but I've used countless makes and models over the last 40 years, and this exact model is my personal favorite. My first one (with the leather wrapped handle) I loved so much that I've been buying them as gifts for friends and family ever since. By "all-around" I mean durability, utility, bushcraft, defense, hunting, throwing, and, again, price. The handle on this model is made with a corrosion free, non-slip (even when wet) material as well (the material will withstand all elements... was designed to repel sand abrasion for military use in the middle east). And this blade keeps an edge that can shave you clean. Kabar is one heck of a solid company (contracts with the military since WW2) and their products speak for themselves. This would be one purchase you'll never regret.
Excellent knife, extremely sharp, well balanced, handle feels great in hand soft yet firm, sheath is very nice could be attached to molle gear with the right straps, over all I couldn’t ask for much more love it.
