It's really a great knife. Excellent grip and high quality steel (not stainless, so you have to take care of it) The sheath isn't the greatest- check the reviews of the Hisshou- all the same issues. Retention as it came wasn't very strong, but I put two nuts and bolts next to the mouth, and now the retention is absurdly strong, and adjustable. It would be cool if CRKT did this so I didn't have to, but it was a cheap and easy solution.

This blade is that something extra, it feels good in your hand and leaves no doubt that its up for the moment. Very sturdy feel when you grip this handle it grips you back.
Perfect Knife -- Not too big and certainly not too small. With the Biotac the Shinbu easily fits concealed under the armpit. This is probably my favorite knife and I own many. /R -- Mike
I tried to give this 4 stars but I guess I clicked 5 and can't change it. CRKT, can you change it to 4 please? Anyway, what a great knife Fit and finish are excellent. Very sharp This knife would absolutely cut through an arm. I would have given it 5 stars but there are some issues that actually have nothing to do with the knife. When I got it and took it out there was green gunky, oil all over the blade. I realize this is for rust prevention but it totally ruins the aesthetics of the blade. I removed this mess and put my own coat of oil on it. Unfortunately, the green gunk is in the sheath too so when you put it back in, the stuff gets back on. Took about an hour of work to remove this stuff from blade and sheath. I think CRKT could do much better in oiling this blade. ****Sorry Ian we are unable to edit the review number of stars.

Fantastic self defense blade. Would be suitable for combat operations. Excellent edge and great grip.
the only thing that seems to affect it is watermelon juice left on blade makes it black....
