Like the early Gerber Mark II knives with their canted blades, this James Williams concept is one of the most purpose-designed fighting knives available. I got myself a black coated version recently. The belt loop that can be screwed onto the sheath is not perfectly thought out, so I opted for a paracord lashing solution as there are enough holes available. This knife came very sharp from the box. I had uncoated versions before that were quite dull. A negative aspect is that the sheath rattles quite a bit, I wish it were fitted tighter to the blade.
