Checks all the boxes except one!

I'm knife poor but had been considering this one for quite a while before deciding to add just one more to the "collection". On the surface what's not to love? Scandi grind on a hefty 1095 carbon steel blade, properly tempered according to reviews & a very good leather sheath, all in an attractive & usefully designed form. So I got it. The functionality is certainly there but it was a less satisfying purchase than hoped. The hammer marks from seating the handle pins were obvious, the expose brass was coarse sanded on a slope creating a dark divot where wood meets brass & the leather was scarred by tool marks& cuts, here & there. If possible I'd give it 3 1/2 stars but scored it at 4 vs. a 3 because the intent & potential were there, if marred by production line necessities at this price point. I just don't like having a new knife look like a "rush" job before I've had a chance to put my own "wear" & history on it. Good knife at a fair price.

The sheath is incredible

I am by no means an expert, but I ordered this knife for the sheath, and I am glad I did. The knife itself is of high quality... Durable and ergonomic!!! And the sheath is honestly of great quality!!! I fully intend to order several of these as gifts for my brothers and my best friends. You wont be disappointed, especially at this price.

One of the best field knives I've ever used! I have hunted, fished, served 20 yrs in Special Forces and other than my K-bar this is the best. The sheath is worth the price by itself.

What a knife.

This knife is pure awesomeness. The whole package is a steal. The sheath alone is worth 30 bucks. The 1095 blade and zebra wood is worth 30 or more. Ive had this knife for a while now. It is a true workhorse and gets lots of nice comments when people see it hanging on your belt. I got a couple more for gifts. Unreal knife at an unreal price.

very solid utility knife

You can't go wrong with this one! It's a heavy duty, carbon steel blade with strength that you can trust. The sheath is excellent. It is carbon steel so always wipe it down with a light coat of oil (cheap cooking oil is fine).

Best value for the money

I own many knives from various parts of the world both high end and low end price wise. The only type I purchase must be fully functional working blades. This may well be the best blade I own for its in tended purpose and, for that reason, I just placed another order for two more before someone decides to raise the price. I listen to folks say they would never buy a Chinese knife. I'm old enough to remember when the Chinese first broke into the American market and bought some of their knives. They were of lesser quality back then; and there may still be some today; but this is not (repeat-NOT) one of them. And the many other blades I own from China are also good. You just have to be very selective. So, what about this knife. Seems like the other reviewers have said it all. This is a superb piece of workmanship both the knife and the sheath. Like I said, I just ordered two more; so you better jump on the bandwagon before they are no longer available.

What a knife !

This knife is outstanding. I own many many high dollar knives and this $30 sands right next to them if not taller. The 1095 steel blade performs flawlessly at all I throw at it. Holda it's edge very well. Nice thick blade and the tip is made extra nice for stabbing tough things. The case is worth the price of this whole package by itself Top quality thick leather worn verricle or horizontal. The Zebra wood handle is nice, big, and unfinished. A little slippery until a few coats of polyurethane was applied. It protects the wood and not as slippery in hand. Going to buy a couple note as gifts. This is one complete package you don't want to pass up. Hats off to Bushmaster for giving us all the opportunity to own such a fine product at such an affordable price !!!!!!
