Let me just start by saying that I did not purchase this knife from Impact guns. I wish I had, though, because their price is about $15.00 less than what I payed!
The knife has a very high quality feel to it, in every way. The blade is carbon steel, it has a full tang, a firm, ergonomic leather grip, and a steel pommel. It looks great in the pictures, but it looks ten times better in person! Ever since buying it, I haven't been able to stop looking at it! It's such a beautiful knife! The leather on the handle sort of matches the sheath, but it's not a perfect match. Still, even if it doesn't match, it's very nice! The leather sheath is a dark tan/light brown color. It has the KA-BAR logo, then under that it has the eagle, globe, and anchor of the Marine Corps, and under that it has has the USMC logo. All of it is perfectly made, and just beautiful! The sheath fits the knife perfectly, a little tight, but that's not a bad thing. The serrated blade makes it a more practical knife than the plain edge version, but if you are looking for a defense knife, the plain would be better, and you might want to consider the smaller one. Either way, if you want a nice, well built knife, buy a KA-BAR! And if you decide you have to buy a KA-BAR, buy it from Impact Guns, they have the best price I've found so far! Outstanding knife!
