Unlike any other knife I own. Very different shape and style.Its got a very sturdy feel, a very thick back on the blade,very aggressive thumb groves,The handle material is a little to slippery for my liking.The knife sheath is made of a plastic material which grips and holds theknife in it with great vigor, it takes some tricks to get it out of thesheath.Over all I like the knife and quite sure it will find a home in one ofmy bug out bags.
The other two complaining about how "hard" it is to remove must be pansies, Yes, the sheath has a good hold on the knife, but that is how it is supposed to be! Would you rather have a knife that falls out easily? I use it as a utility blade when I go hiking, and have it hooked to my backpack (hanging upside down, grip down that is) and I can rip it out very easily, you cant "gingerly" take it out, you gotta rip it out! I give it 4 stars for the fact that I haven't found a way to use this as a "boot" knife...
HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE: There are plenty of great boot knife products on the market, if you want to carry what is legally considered to be a "double-edged dagger", and is therefore ILLEGAL to carry in many states and jurisdictions. This SWHRT1 HRT Tactical is single-edged, not too long, extremely well made, feels good in the hand, has thumb gimping on the spine, has a full tang, and has a deep finger choil to protect you from hand slippage when performing either a thrust or slash cut. The blade is thick,..
