Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
i really love this knife, it had a good edge out of the box...even though it was not razor sharp, it was better than most. after some simple honing it had a very nice edge and has held up well over time. the stainless blade dosent spark like a higher carbon blade does, but its a trade-off for the stainless qualities. the grip feels very secure in the hand and the slight inward curve of the blade makes it very very good for carving into sticks or anything where your really pushing the blade into something. Ive beat it through a few things with rocks and such, and it has held up very well, aside from a few dings its stayed in great shape.
I have actually used this blade to gut fish and it worked surprisingly well. I cut through bones well and the skin with no problem. it could have been better, but that was very likely because i hadn't sharpened it recently, so ill blame myself for that one.
at the end of the day this is a sturdy and edge-holding knife that I grab on almost all of my trips.
