I carried this knife on a thigh rig every day of my two tours in Iraq, and for long field ops stateside. i can honestly say, their IS no better choice for a tactical carry knife. the Nylon sheathe is fully MOLLE compatible, with a much quieter draw then the plastic sheath that came with the previous model, I cut off the velcro secured handle fastener (would be better with snaps). The blade holds its edge like no other, cutting through everything i could throw at it, INCLUDING the metal bands that secure ammo pallets, a task thatll snap any lesser blade, and it is TOUGH. The glass breaker on the pommel is a nifty little addition, got some use in hairy situations, and, in your hand, it is by far the best feeling fixed blade on the market IMHO.
