    Great knife, have used mine everywhere from Alaska where I cleared an airstrip for a supercub, to contract work in the mid-east. Down side the sheath is crap, need to make a secure-ex sheath and change the belt loop height so it can mount higher.

    This is an outstanding knife. At the risk of sounding blasphemous--the O-1 steel exceeds Carbon V performance. And for those who think I am making this up--I would not have believed it either had I not personally observed it first-hand. This might very well be one of the best knives CS has produced in its history (or in the 18 years that I have been following them). Fit and finish are top-notch. The handle fits perfectly in your hand and "clings" to your grip. A thick, solid slab of machinery that is extremely well-balanced and works not only as a field implement but moves like a self-defense blade. Congratulations to Cold Steel--I can't laud this knife enough.

    Lynn: Come on; haven't you had enough of Chinas' Trademark infringements and "Fake-Master Specials" RUINING Cold Steels' Reputation??

    Bring this knife home!!

    The version I got in SK-5 shaved METAL off a nail, and then hair off my arm w/ the SAME spot on the blade, though. IF you can pay them enough they make a *decent* knife. All my other TMs are incredible, including the Japanese versions.

    I own three trailmasters, the first being the original carbon v version, next was the Intruder bowie from around 1989-90, #22 highly collectable, the last being the sk-5 made in china version, the last is my knockabout knife, works fine don't expect it to match the carbon v knife only time will tell
