Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Just got this knife a few weeks ago. Initial impressions were that it felt light for the size, mostly due to the plastic grip. The plastic has a cheap-feeling texture, but still feels comfortable & very durable. The blade comes plenty sharp out of the box, though a few passes on a sharpening stone doesn't hurt. The only real test I've put this knife to was sawing a few small (~1/2") branches off a fallen pine tree blocking a trail, which this knife did with absolute ease. It's not the nicest knife in the world & you won't impress many friends with it, but for the price it's unbeatable. I take this with me everywhere, & would recommend it to anyone.
