Knife is amazing. Sheath is meh.
The knife itself is amazing. Finish is top notch, it came pretty sharp out of the box and was fairly easy to resharpen when the time came. Pretty much had a kydex sheath made almost immediately. The leather work on the sheath I got was pretty wonky and the knife is pretty loose (a couple good jumps and the knife is just about ready to fall out).

Excellent blade and design - Garbage sheath.
I don’t like that there is no option for left or right handed wearability. The sheath feels cheap, but I feel the molded insert will help keep the knife in the sheath even with some wear even with horizontal carry. Out of the box, the blade was extremely sharp, and has retained the original edge very well after moderate use. The knife feels good in my hand, and feels nicely balanced. Not bad for $120! Appropriate value for an appropriate price. Nice knife, gross sheath. thanks for reading.

Everything camp knife!
Bought it as my go to camping knife and it fits the job perfectly! It’s sharp, compact, a good weight, excellent thick blade, perfect finger choil. It fits perfectly in my larger hands, and the scales feel excellent. The sheath is simple and effective and I rather like the horizontal carry position of it. I really love the colors that I chose and would absolutely recommend this as an all-around excellent value!!

Great fixed blade edc knife
Shaving sharp Blade with a snug scout carry sheath. A great buy (as long as you’re willing to wait [slow shipping in the time of Covid19]).

great for EDC
I like the ergos of this knife as well as the fact that i can get a full 4 finger grip. I'm 6 foot 2 with XL hands and size 14 feet so my hands are decently large and i still have some room on the handle. The micarta is great as my hands are sweaty all the time from hyperhidrosis and the micarta doest get slick when wet, it actually takes on a different type of grip it seems. time will tell how long it can take the constant wetness. the steel seems fine and hasnt rusted yet at all. I will probably get an after market sheath even though i do like the horizontal leather one that came with this one. i wear it right below my belly on my belt for right hand draw, feels great. You would need to get a left hand sheath for behind back scout carry for right hand draw.

My favorite
This is the third "blade" I've ordered from drop and it's my favorite. I am not a knife "pro" or nerd, but I can tell that this one is very well made and I like it best. It's got a weight and stability to it that none of my switch blades have. It came razor sharp and it's very comfortable to use. I know I will use it for years to come unless I lose it. The leather strap is nice and seems practical, would come in handy if I go camping. PS. I live in Brooklyn and I usually have bagels for breakfast, so it's not like I need knives for hunting or skinning animals or something.

Well built but.....
I like the quality of the handle as well as the look of the blade. But if had a chance to put my hands on before buying, I would have put it back. The edge on this blade was terribly dull. I found it burred and rough. Definitely not a quality edge out of the box. I have put about 4 hours of work into the blade and it is now coming around

Quality blade
It seems they are listening and have fixed the issues described in the first drop. The rough grind marks on the spine and tang have been semi polished, and the hole previously visible under the butt end of the scales is now covered up. The sheath was quite dry actually and not heavily oiled. Blade arrived hair shaving sharp. Satisfied overall.
