    I ordered the dessert tan, but should have gone with black...

    I'm not to crazy about the sheath. Specifically the clip that secures the knife...Not really a one handed knife is it?

    Over all it's a nice knife, and a good value IMO...

    I got the black one. I don't really like the clip either but the knife looks sweet!

    I have two. I like the knives.

    The sheath is not primo. Knife rattles in it. :(

    However, you can tune it to be a one handed release operation.

    Take a file and gently adjust to the point the knife is firmly secured but can be released by a finger pushing against the release tab. I've got mine to the point I can confidently pull the knife and still have the knife securely held in the sheath.

    File too much and .... uugghhh. That might be bad.

    The sheath is easy to use once you know the trick. A co-worker at the range I work at was going to file his until I showed him the trick. He was litererally getting a file when I showed him.

    You grab the knife with your four fingers, but jam your thumb in between the knife and the latch in kind of a down and out motion (in the little notch formed by the back of the latch). You should have your thumb out like you are hitchiking or giving a movie a thumbs down. The leverage will push it out and unlatch, then just pull up with your finger and get a full grasp on it.

    It is hard to explain but the strong hand thumb should be able to do it pretty easily. More or less just shove your thumb down there and it will work.
