Things I liked: the belt clip was adjustable for various configurations. good quality knife and fit firmly in the sheath. price was great. great value.
Things I would have changed: nothing.
What others should know: dont cut your self lol.
Things I liked: The look, the feel, the positive click and secure hold when sheathing it.
Things I would have changed: Number one: harder steel. Knife does not hold an edge very long, and is often dulled a bit just by sheathing it. Not so dull it won't cut, but sheathing definitely knocks the "keenness" off the edge. Number two: make it a full tang knife. The knife blade, while thick, has a tang extending into the plastic handle by only an inch or so.
What others should know: Originally I gave this knife a scathing report. I have since carried it a few times, and had cause to use it for cutting and prying duty. While I wouldn't suggest trying any heavy prying (for fear of breaking the blade out of the handle) or precision cutting (wouldn't use this as your primary knife for hunting), when considering price...it's ok for what it is named as: a Back Up knife. I originally said it was only a pretty knife, but not useful. I retract that statement, and give it an overall 3 (good). Not great, but not bad.
Things I liked: Handle feels good in the hand, knife has a nice shape and looks great in general. The blade is pretty thick, and looks strong. The knife has a very positive feel when sheathing (loud click lets you know it's in), and is very secure when sheathed (I don't worry that it may fall out and disappear if I I run, climb, fall, etc).
Things I would have changed: Where to start... First thing I noticed was that it's not a full tang knife. The tang seems to go only about an inch into the handle, where it seems to end. Not such a big deal, just means I wouldn't try to pry with it, for fear of breaking it out of the handle. The sheath's belt clip is held on by four teeny-tiny little screws, but again, no big deal. Here's the big deal: this knife will not stay sharp! I can get it sharp enough to shave the hairs from my arm with no problem. Shove it in the sheath once or twice, however, and the blade dulls significantly! My opinion: the steel is too darned soft...not good, Umarex! I would return it, but what I would lose on the shipping makes it not worth it. I would have ZERO tangible complaints if this knife just held an edge. I know, it's a ten dollar knife (12 bucks when I bought it), and my expectations weren't high. It's just that it COULD be a really nice knife, even at twice the cost, if IT JUST HELD AN EDGE!
What others should know: If you want a knife to take hunting, and you need a knife that's sharp enough for skinning/gutting/prepping a harvested animal, this ain't the knife for you. If you want a cheap, "universal tool" kinda knife, again: not for you. If you want a knife that looks beautiful when displayed in a case, or just something to look cool in your tool box/drawer/belt/glove box...go for it. I bought this Umarex knife as a back-up hunter, and also to carry at work (where I often need to cut stuff, pry, etc). As such, it will sit in a drawer, unused, until the end of time...how disappointing!
