It's a wonderful knife, and one of the sharpest store-bought knives that I've ever owned. It is incredibly light, so it's great for carrying. It's shape is good for tucking in a boot, and of course the American flag is always a nice thing to see on something like a knife. This knife is also very well balanced, but that lead my to try throwing it. It worked for several hours but then decided to snap entirely in half. I'll certainly buy another one soon, or try to get it re-bladed. Great work BUCK!
