I’ve had one for a month or so. It’s a real nice knife. Very slicy. Great for spreading peanut butter too! The sheath is very useable too. No strap but plenty of retention.

That Kephart pattern is great for a camp and hunting knife. ::tu::
KNIFE Magazine has a featured article on Horace Kephart and this knife design in the Feb. 2019 edition.
I just finished reading his book from 1906 about life in the Appalachian mountains.
