Knife works great. I have read some reviews about loose holster and it doesn't work with boots etc etc etc. I have not found this to be the case. It fits perfectly in the concealed pocket on my 5.11 ATAC Shield boots. I use the velco that is provided just to ensure retention. The draw is smooth if you place your thumb on the sheath and rock back like it was designed. Perfect if your in the ground fighting position or trapped in your vehicle.

During a recent ground fight with a suspect my 5.11 boot knife fell out of the sheath. When I got back to the station I noticed it was gone from my boot. We went back to the scene and we were unable to locate it. I am sure someone picked it up since it is a nice knife. Overall this is a good knife and I would recommend it to anyone. Just be cautious of loosing it from the sheath.

Great knife, but major flaw.

By JPinNM

Pros

  • Sharp Blade

Cons

  • Hard To Quickly Draw
  • Bad Sheath Design

My profession is

  • 1-3 months

I purchased this to replace a similar product from another company that I lost at work.

The design of the knife is great, and has more features, including a stronger straight edge blade then my other one.
I've found that the grooves in the handle allow for paracord to be wrapped around as a grip, and I like that.
Hook knife is sharp and works well, i've used it multiple times before.
O2 wrench fits every bottle i've tried, contrary to reviews i've read in other sources.

Sheath fits the pocket in my 8 inch Taclite boots, and if you take care to click it into place, it will NOT come out accidentally (Which is how I lost my previous knife)

But there is a HUGE design flaw.
I CANNOT draw it cleanly. No matter what I try, the hook section gets caught up on the sheath, requiring an awkward rocking motion to draw.

I think in an emergency if I need to get to it immediately, this would cause an unacceptable delay, and i'm not too happy with that.

Beyond that, great product.

Great Knife

By SemperSly

Pros

  • Felt good in hand
  • Easy to use
  • Sharp

Cons

  • Sheath Mounting

My profession is

I have used this product for

  • 3-6 months

I love this knife. Great blade on it out of the package. Use the oxygen key twice now. Sheath makes sure the knife stays in place. Down side: Sheath mounting doesn't allow for a normal draw with it. have to make an awkward reach for it. Overall amazing knife, well worth it.
