If you pull apart the handle coverings you will find a large chunk of the metal has been cut out. I have stuck matches here, but I wish this space wasn't here. It makes the blade feel cheap.
Of course, for the price there is nothing better.

Kickass Cheap Knife
This is a no frills no nonsense knife that gets the job done. It doesn't ship very sharp, but it's sharp enough. It's a thick blade with a nice matte black finish. I have used mine for everything except what it was meant to be used for and it has held up to everything I have put it through. It's not a luxury knife, it's a get'er done knife.

Glorified Prison Shank
But a FANTASTIC glorified prison shank! The only thing I'll be messing with is making the grip a bit thicker to fit my hand better. Other than that, I think it's a pretty good value for how cheap it is and it won't make you all that depressed if you should break/lose it. At $9 they're cheap enough to have a dozen, but at least do yourself a favor and at least get ONE.

This is a pretty high quality knife especially given its price! Ive used this knife around the house for many things. Ive taken it camping. And hey it could even be used for self defense/protection. This knife is pretty intimidating considering its size. Its also VERY sharp btw. The only negatives i have about this knife is that 1: The sheath is pretty crummy but im happy though. And 2: What USCAV says is real paracord on the handle is not paracord when its actually nylon string and it tends to slip down during use. But no biggy:) Just tape the bottom part of it and you shouldnt have a problem. 4.5 stars for this one. Nice job Fury!!!

Could be better
I bought this knife not expecting top notch quality, given the price but I did recieve the knife quickly (thank you USCAV)My biggest complaint about the knife is that the grind on the blade is so far off from anything you want to actually cut with,the knife was sharp when I recieved it but I thought it could use a good polished edge. I tried to sharpen the knife on a 30 degree angle and the grind was probably closer to 45 degree on one side after 2 hours of removing material it finally got it really sharp. I also found that the PARACORD wraped handle isn't really paracord its really cheap nylon string. I replace it with real paracord and got it sharp, and I think that the steel is of decent quality,so all in all I think this knife will be a good one for a bug-out-bag. I know I complained about and $8 knife but I just wanted to let you know what you were getting. Still considering abuying another.

Great Knife for the price
I bought one of these to replace a knife I thought I had lost the one I was replacing was better in many ways but this knife is longer then the other and the grip fits my hand nicely I'm a rancher security guard and former army I have Ka-Bars but they are just to good to use everyday this knife stays in my truck and gets used to cut open bails of hay open letters I tried using it to butcher a beef but the tanto point doesn't do that very well other then that I've used this knife without fail it takes an edge nicely too, it was sharp out of the box and held the edge for almost a year of hard use before I had to sharpen it the cord on the grip hasn't moved on me once. Over all it a nice weapon, great tool and very good over all.

If a soldier understands the difference in a utility knife (a tool) and specialty blades then this knife for the price can not be beat.
My only mistake was buying one, which will be corrected. Good steel, soft enough to rub out any folds, good enough steel to take a FINE hone.
Sheath will do. The wrap on the handle is a bonus... yes I can see where in time it will loosen up (which for the price.. I like having the extra cord) but if it is a concern just use a few drop of good ole Super Glue on the ribs of the cord.. let dry.. carry on.
Gonna buy five more and replace my tent stakes.
It is a tool, multi function and the best part it falls into the same catagory as brass. If in deep shiote leave it where it falls.
8 bucks... came sharp. I see no negatives.

Get this knife! I bought two and I love them. The sheath isn't the best but it's pretty good considering the price. This knife can take a beating and it's great for those on a budget.
