Great tanto blade. On one hand knife is real light weight, on the other hand it's construction makes it kind of fat. The belt clip is a very big plus. All in all good knife, could be narrower, could be a little hardier.

My first purchase from Knife Depot. I didn't pay attention to the size at all. But let me tell you this: This knife is a monster. It's big and heavy. If you're a larger guy like me, you can get away with carrying it your pocket, but you're gonna know it's there.I took off the clip and it laid a little awkward in my pocket, kinda sideways. BUT, the knife is totally awesome. It's my favorite knife. I decided to keep it in the side pocket of the Jeep. Nice little seat belt cutter and window breaker too. It's a beast, but it's a fine, fine knife.

I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas. He always carries a knife on his belt. He is also very hard to shop for. He opened this gift and could not believe how beautiful the knife is. The bone handle is gorgeous. The Damascus steel work is so beautiful. He shows all his friends and people either think it is an antique knife and/or costs thousands of dollars. It is a work of art.
