I like this knife because of it slim footprint - fits well in my Stryke Pants and the back pocket of my Wranglers. Use it on a daily basis and have not had to sharpen it, even after 6 years!
The 5.11 Scout Tanto is the best knife I have ever owned! There is absolutely no movement between the blade and the handle. It is rock solid. The blade opens lightning fast and the liner lock is very strong. The only thing I would like to see would be a glass breaker tip. Other than that, this is a great knife!
When I first handled the knife I thought it was a bit large in the pocket, however after a break in period the 5.11 replaced my Gerber EDK (every day knife).
After searching for the perfect knife and going through several knives I have finally found one that I truly enjoy carrying and that will hold up to daily use and abuse. This knife was a great purchase and I would suggest it to anyone. It came sharp right out of the box. It is very stylish and durable as well as it has a comfortable grip.
Best knife I have ever owned I own about 40 knives and prefer this one over all of them I highly recomend it to anyone and will soon be buying the alpha version for my gf. Love this knife!! works as had as i do and kept its edge longer than any other a few strokes from my sharpening stone and it was at a razors edge yet again.
I use this knife daily on duty as a PO. It was given to me at a gang conference and couldn't be happier with it. I used a Police Spyderco for years before I broke the tip of the blade. This knife has held up almost as well. The blade has stayed sharp, but I did lose one of the screws that holds the clip on.
