I bought this knife for $65 (including Illinois taxes) on Amazon. The knife itself is awesome: Spyderco quality and opening circle, super-sharp, grippy handle, long VG-10 blade. The downside is 'I bought this knife for $65 on Amazon'! Is it worth it? Time will tell. The brown alligator handle and super-steel blade make me think so, but functionally, it's no better than my $40 Spyderco Tenacious.

There are not a lot of woods knives in the 6" range for under $100 with stainless steel. This Druid 200 hits a home run in the build and design. The 9cr18mov steel is very tough, which means good edge retention but hard to get a fine edge on it. All in all for the price it is a great camp knife if you are on a budget and want stainless steel.

This knives size fits in a lot of my systems. The quality is awesome and I am very happy with the performance. The handle is rather narrow and I believe it will either be way you love the knife or hate it.

I haven't had this knife long but it out performs every knife I've ever owned! The Elmax steel holds an edge amazingly! I haven't had to sharpen it yet with daily use. Definitely recommend for anyone!

I've owned dozens of folders in this price range. Non compare to the Vulcan tanto. Even my benchmade adamas pales in comparison, being so heavy and hAd oversized scales. Great job SOG! I cut with it daily and its performs superbly.

Wow I love my subcom. I felt I needed to review it becuase it is surprisingly a very well made knife. No blade wobble at all and is light as a feather while still being as strong as my gerber or spyderco. Highly recommend this knife!

I bought one of these as I back up to a firearm a while back. It's a big beefy intimidating look hunk of a knife. It was very tough to close as a lot of Coldsteel knives for the first month or so. For the money I paid for this knife it most certainly should not have had to have a break in period for just closing it. Their quality control is lacking in this area big time. One other con is Coldsteel only warranties their knives for a yr and as such I see a lot of what they claim is a bunch of hype. But other than that it has worked well for it's intended purpose.It's the aus8 version and is a very good general purpose steel. So I'd never ever pay for price for any of their knives as I think they are way over priced. But if you can get one of these at what I paid it's not a bad deal at all. At full price you can find much better made knives.

I bought one of these over a yr ago for use as an EDC. Surprising it was a little on the rough side for opening. Over time it has worked out and opens smoothly now. It fits my hand nicely and makes controlling it very easy in use.The blade steel is equal easily to Aus8 making it a very acceptable general purpose steel for daily use. Doesn't chip or rust easily and holds it edge a fair amount of time. At the price I paid for it was 26 dollars it was a fair deal for it I'd say. But I see now it's being overpriced as the usual custom for Spyderco which they have a tendency to do. If you can find one of these for this price I'd say by one it's worth it. But at full Spyderco price I'd recommend looking elsewhere as you can find better for what they want for it at full price.

I use this little guy around the shop for opening packages, boxes and other small task. I used is to cut back some tulip bulbs and it worked wonderfully. It's definitely sharp out of the box and sharpens up rather quickly. My only complaints are the draw out of the sheath is a little when new and the handles, while making for great ergonomics, are a tad thick and make the knife show through your shirt, when worn around then neck. In a pinch you could use this as a back up. A great little knife that's a bit heavy for the neck, yet too light for this hip or pocket. The sheath is wonderful.

Loved the look and materials, had to have it, hoped the prices would come down so I could start to lie about how much I'd payed for it, which was too much. As of Mar 2016 they are still 195.00 at the lowest.
