    For the $20-ish knife that it is, not bad at all. I got one for free from Glock for helping out at a GSSF match. I haven't ued mine much, but many people use them as truck knives with good results. I may just throw mine in my glove compartment of my car just in case I need something like that sometime.

    It ain't a Strider, but it cuts and feels decently well made. I can think of worse ways to spend that 20 or so dollars.

    From what I read about them YEARS ago they were a VERY VERY sturdy knife. There was an article about them in tacticle knives magazine and they had nothing but good things to say. Apparently they were making knives before they made guns, and mess kits before that. For the money I say you cannt go wrong

    It's not a Kabar, but it's a solid blade (I've handled quite a few) and decent enough as a general issue service knife.

    You could do a LOT worse.

    I currently own 2 of them. I have a black with teeth and a o.d. green without teeth. I want one in every color with and without teeth for collecting. My o.d. green one gets used quite a bit and takes a shaving edge. I definately suggest getting a couple to have for an emergency.

    As previously mentioned, you could do worse however my own field/woods(civilian) experiences have been to make Glock knives back-ups/secondary/trunk knives as there are better quality blades out there for just a few more bucks.
    For a sub $30 knife I give it two thumbs up and if forced to make it my "primary" I would definitely make do with it.

    I bought one at the gun show today. I didn't need it I just always look at them and figured what's $28.
