Very nice knife with a razor edge right out of the box. Speaking of boxes, like all the Russian-made knifes I have purchased previously, the box for this knife is first-class; very heavy construction and functional for storing the knife.
The blade design is just as shown in the photographs and the Micarta black canvas handle material is attractive and will permit a solid grip with this knife under any conditions, wet or dry.
The Kydex sheath is very protective and holds the knife very firmly with built-in clamps on both sides of the blade guard. The sheath has a drain hole and a clamp for your waist band, pocket or boot wherever you decide to carry this knife. I would have preferred a standard belt/boot clip, however, this one works well and clips very firmly to whatever fits inside the clip.
The blade is very strong with a 4mm thickness, wide groove in the center and single edge design that is also very attractive.
This knife is light enough to carry easily and would be very useful for dressing small game in addition to being a great self defense tool.
