Cheap, durable, full tang, and light weight makes this a great secondary knife. The knocks against it are the sheath, the scales are offset on the tang (will cause hand fatigue with prolonged usage), short blade length (limits it for wood processing), thinness of the blade (be careful removing it when it gets stuck in wood), uneven grind (heel of the blade common on cheap knives, straightened out with my diamond life sharpening block), and unfinished edge which I fixed on my leather strop with compound. This can be sharpened to a hair shaving edge that holds very well for stainless steel. Great first knife for the novice, the casual outdoors person, or anyone really concerned about weight. Won't hold an edge like a Mora/Opinel but due to full tang I feel it's more durable.
