This is the same knife that was my work-horse for over 20 months in Viet~Nam. It is so well thought of by me...that I have bought 15 for members of my family. As someone commented the price here at US Cavalery, is the lowest on the inter net... BUY IT ! I have actual staked my life on it(in Combat), ...and I am still here.

Great Knife, great price
This is a great hardworking and sturdy knife. It wont win any beauty prizes but that is not what this knife is about. Its just a good strong and hardworking survival tool. It also comes with a nice metal and leather sheath. I used pastewax on both the leather grip and shealth and both buffed up nicely. ALSO US Cav has absolutly the best price around for this knife. I have seen them on-line for almost twice as much. The same goes for the K-bars. Other companies are selling the K-Bars in the $70 range and this knife in the 50 dollar or 60 dollar range. Buy from US Cav. Also this knife is made right here in the USA, cant beat that. God Bless our troops. Jon, Wildland Firefighter Type Two Hand Crew Hotshot National

Great knife as long as the user understands it's limits
I own a 1976 version of this same knife and it looks identical to the current model. I bought mine used a couple of years ago. I use it fairly often while working on my property. It holds an edge, has a good grip and is an all around good basic duty knife. I don't consider it a true survival knife because it's too thin for heavy splitting and the tip is too narrow for prying, both of which are important in a survival situation. With that said, for its size, it is still a great tool. I don't think you can find a better work knife for $35.

Not Fancy, Very Functional
The first time I looked for a survival knife, I went for this one, It has become my blueprint, for other survival knives. Full of tools. Sawback, spear holes in hilt, Good size, balance, and weight. Steel butt for hammering. Small drawbacks blade is the leather wafer handle which is shock absorbing when chopping and comfortable to hold, that's a plus and minus because it will degrade if subjected to water for any length of time. I use a leather treatment to repel water, which kind is a whole other article. The sheath is also leather very basic. More than worth the money. Caveat, there are similar knives made with Kraton Handles I would choose the leather over that every time. The clip point on this knife has been known to break when put to HEAVY prying. I put that more to the user than the knife. My opinion, and I could be wrong.

I Miss This Knife
Many years ago when I was in the Air Force Security Police this survival knife was a coveted item and very difficult to scrounge. After all we were not pilots. Every time I’d get my hands on one, it would get “borrowed.” So today, I have to buy one because all the free ones walked away. It is worth it though as more than a reminder of better days. It is a very handy knife and a tool to have for outdoors. I plan to buy several to stash on the tractor, car, and camping gear.

U.S. Made........ USAF survival knife
1. USA made by a quality company that has made tons of knives for thousands of combat troops. 2. Economy priced yet built strong and will sharpen and hold a decent edge. 3. Functional and useful for a number of outdoor adventure seekers. 4. It's a tool not a BMW automobile. It works and for the cost you spend you will still have cash to fill the gas tank to get to your adventure. 5. If you find a way to break, wreck or otherwise destroy or loose it... Well, your only out 35.00 bucks..... Last time I checked no other American company produces this much quality for this low price. To be fair and honest, I grade it a (B) on the scale that A is for awesome and E is for fails the common joe scale. I gave my issued knife to my new Eagle Scout and told him it was with me through Iraq, Italy and Kyrgyzstan....... I think he treasures it as much as I did. Gotta get a new one for me now.... Final word........... Get one, the knife delivers more than the price you pay for it.... Real good deal.

Survival Knife.
10 yr Marine, Carried many fighting, survival knives. Most military knives are replaceable type knives. A good survival knife does not have a speer, clip point type blade, (breakage). Blade should be .25 thick, partially serrated. This knife from 1-10 rating for survival knife, (6). The sharpening stone is not quality, must be replaced. Knife not heavy enough for chopping. Leather handle not good option, draws moister, gets wet, damp, in turn causes rust. Handle should be made water proof, but then the leather can't breath. This knife is limited in useage.

An excellent knife
Some have made negative comments here about the scabbard. What they don't know is that the steel plate is designed for safety of an air force pilot/aircrew during a crash landing as the blade will not punch through the scabbard and stab the wearer.
