This knife is made quite well for the intended purpose. Sharp enough blade to cut through webbing or rope. Handle is very easy to grab and hang on to. I don't know about cutting through cheese and lunch items as I have read in other reviews about knives, LOL. I will give the knife itself a 4 star rating for those features. However, no matter how well a knife is constructed, it's no good to you if you loose it in the water. The sheath leaves a lot to be desired. It will hold the knife in during a very light shaking, but anything more than that is unpredictable and the knife came out quite a few times while trying this in my house. That is unacceptable for me. I am returning this and going with another option.

Great little knife. Clip snapped into the attachment on my PFD. Blade is a bit shorter than I like, but it serves the purpose. Cuts line pretty well up to 1/2" diameter, larger requires more than one swipe. Used in both salt and fresh water without rust or issues, but I do rinse and then apply a touch of oil.

Top Question & Answer
Q: Will this knife specifically and by design fit into the square lash tab on my PFD? Not just on a random strap somewhere, but actually in the lash tab that is on the PFD for accessories such as a knife?
A: Yes, it will fit nice and securely to your lash tab
