Knife gets 5 stars, the sheath/belt clip gets 3 stars. Functionality of the belt clip gets 2 stars. The sheath holds the 'claw' great but the clip doesn't hold on a belt. It's fallen off my belt with just basic bending/maneuvering countless times and/or pulls off the belt at times when raising a shirt to access the 'claw.' A PITA at best and figured this would end up being problematic at some point. Well as of today while working outside around the house, I lost the belt clip along w/ the knife.
May order another knife but only if I can figure out an equal quality carrying option.
Love this knife - the belt clip fits and the knife holds securely. It pulls out easily, is sharp and ready to use straight out of the box. One of my new favorite CRKT blades...
Loved this knife, felt great in your hand, fantastic retention in the sheath for carrying as a neck knife... but then the tip broke, and now i'm left disappointed with a tipless knife. instead of forgetting it around my neck until just in the moment when i need it most, it now just sits on my dresser looking lonely. i'd buy something with a stronger tip the next time.
I've only had my Bear Claw for a couple of weeks but I like it. I have a smallish hand but the Bear Claw fits easily in my hand and is very secure with my index finger through the finger hole. On the neck chain it is comfortable and easily accessible under my loose fitting summer light-weight shirt. I only wish CRKT offered a left handed sheath as I would like to be able to carry and draw the knife with my off hand, leaving my strong hand free to deploy my firearm if necessary. I would recommend this knife highly. I am considering ordering a second one for me (especially if they'd offer a left handed sheath).

I received the plain edge,sharp point,Bear Claw today. I agree with other reviews. The knife and sheath were everything I wanted. The knife fit the sheath tightly and will not bounce out. The sheath clip, however, was a BIG let down. The clip could be installed open end up or open end down down. I installed it open end up so when the knife was drawn, the sheath wouldn't come with it. The clip fit over my 1.75" wide "bullhidebelts" dress belt, but would not fit over my 2" wide "bullhidebelts" carry belt at all. To me, the clip needs to be attached at the top and the bottom of the sheath so it will NOT come off the belt, drawing or re-holstering. The clip's belt opening should be 2" to handle any sized belt.
Love the knife but would like to see a left-handed carry sheath offered

This knife is great, small and compact. Easy to carry and conceal. The knife fits tight in the sheath.
I should start by saying this is one of the better design's I've used. Not only is it intimidating to riff-raff it fits the wife's hand too What a great little deterrent when you cant have your sidearm I promise I'll own 3-4 before the end of the year
