The knife is well constructed and is, as advertised. This includes the blade, blade edge, striking edge on back strap of blade for fire starter ( which also performed as advertised ), the blunt end of the handle used for pounding/hammering, and whistle.
The rigid, plastic, part of the knife sheath is good and as advertised, it securely holds the knife and fire starter and includes a weep hole which effectively drains water.
The nylon webbing of the sheath is too thin for the application in my observation, after a 10 day outing in the wilderness, the webbing has frayed, and is coming detached form the rigid plastic, as is the belt loop which is also coming apart.
Based on my experience and observations of this knife I have formed the opinion that the overall package is average, the major detraction is the quality of the nylon webbing on the sheath. Mine is no longer wearable on a belt after a 10 day wilderness hike/trip, due the nylon coming apart. I would still say it is a good knife, I will just keep mine in my overnight or week out pack.
I hope this is helpful.
