Was looking for a good quality tactical/military style pocket knife to replace my old one and figured I couldn't go to wrong with one that carried the Dispatch Knives and I was right. This is a well crafted, solidly constructed knife using what appear to be quality materals. It has a nice weight (not heavy) and good feel to it, the locking mechinisam is solid as well. Time will tell how long it holds it's edge. Overall, IMO, this is a very nice knife that rivals some of the more expensive ones I've owned over the years.
