This knife was designed as an aircraft survival knife. The version I have is the black one. It's been used, but not abused. I have the sheath, leg straps, and all that. The sheath has a built in sharpener. This is made right here in Portland, OR and says so on the blade. Very good knife! I love it, but I really want a Ka-Bar, so, I'll sell it for $60 or trade for a straight edge, leather handle Ka-Bar or other US made Bowie knife.
