<span> This knife is awesome. I knew it was small but it locks in the case very well. It has 2 click lock settings and both are great. You can use survival cord to make a handle. They make more skeleton KBAR knives and I plan to buy them. So I give 5 stars. </span>

Easiest skeletonized handle to wrap
Review by Latravious F.
<span> For 12$ you can’t beat this handy little knife. The “neck” sheath is okay but with a little effort and some leather you can make this into an amazing little EDC. Did I mention how easy it was to wrap the handle? The geometry lends itself to nice symmetrical patterns. You can also easily add a lanyard at the end of your wrap to accommodate larger hands (I’m 6’3”). Would recommend anytime! </span>

Unusable sheath
Review by Damian V.
<span> I could barely get it into the sheath. Then, having gotten it in, I couldn't get it out without prying the sheath apart with screwdrivers.<br><br>There isn't enough room for the flexible parts of the sheath to bend to let the knife out. And the parts of the knife which have to push past the bumps are too sharp. It's a terrible design. </span>

Designed for smaller hands
Review by Meyer B.
<span> The handle is too small for my hand; but, the knife I s sturdy, light weight, and sharp. I put this Iife in my trauma bag and it will work for that use. I would not use for diving or bushcraft as the knife must feel comfortable in your hand, and my hands are just too large fir this to be practical for me. I have the original full tang Ka-bar and love it. I still put this little skeleton knife through some hard tests and it survived me so if you have a smaller hand this could be a fantastic knife for you. I cut open many bags of cement, mulch, and gravel. Cut down about 30 appliance boxes and a small tree (about 6-7 inch diameter). I also used it to pry open some old and stubborn paint cans. I was impressed with it’s durability having snapped similar lives in have doing that same thing. After about a month of hard use, this knife remained sharp without honing the edge. When I did sharpen the knife before retiring it to my Trauma bag, this knife went back to that shave-the-hairs-off-your-face factory sharpness that it arrived in. The black coating does wear off and more so depending on what you’re cutting or scraping it against. </span>

Great knife. Very discreet
Review by Charlton Z.
<span>I love this knife. Very flat, very sharp. You could hide it on your forearm under a bandage or strap/tape it on your body without any noticeable bulges (if that's what you wanted to do with it).<br><br>Good value.</span>
