I did a lot of research on this before I made a decision. It's everything I wanted - beautiful, well made, weight, and how it fits in my hand. I'm thrilled with it. I don't love the sheath, and the reviews I read before I ordered gave me a heads up on this so I knew it I likely wouldn't like it - and there are zero options out there for an aftermarket, but I know someone that is able to make a custom job for me. Its real leather and smells wonderful...it just doesn't seem like it goes with the Benchmade design. Doesn't have a great solution for attaching to my BOB or a way to secure it where it couldn't just all out. Hope this helps! Again, LOVE it...
