Yes, it's expensive. Yes, you hate Mick Strider. It's still a bad little knife in an awesome steel. I also have their AFSOC BT which is a foot long, 1/4" knife in the awesome steel.

It's pretty impressive that it can take that kind of abuse. It's also 100% unnecessary.

Maybe, but I've owned a dozen knives in CPM3V (most at 58-59RC) and in my opinion they sharpen as easily as s30v, hold an edge just as long under most circumstances and even better under others, and are way more corrosion resistant than you'd expect from being technically non-stainless.

Long story short, he lied about details of his service. He eventually apologized, but only after being called out. To some it was unforgivable and they won't buy anything associated with him or his company. Others have decided to forgive and own and enjoy his knives. I, obviously, belong to the second group. I don't judge people for belonging to the first as I understand where they are coming from. For the record, I am former military. It still doesn't bother me enough to boycott Strider. YMMV

In the 1990's they were the coolest knife company on Earth. In the early 2000's they blew up with Internet forums, magazine articles, and the War on Terror. Then it became Grail this, pimp that, Strider spa this, custom that. The Usual Suspect Network became a Strider can do no wrong circle jerk of guys that collect knives. Then a few competitors paid for a private investigator to see who the supposed black ops special forces guys were. Then all hell broke loose. Strangest thing, the fanboys didn't even blink. So now, 7 or so years later, we have a company that makes standard knives and what I can only describe as art knives, selling everything they make.

Is the DB a good tool? Yes, for what it was intended. I carried one for years. I think the DB-L is a better tool. It is a semi sharp pry bar and a last ditch defence weapon. If that is what you are looking for and don't mind spending more for the cool guy factor great. I was stuck in a weird spot of liking thier basic knives and hating the lies and the fanboys.

I've owned A LOT of CPM3V and it's at least on par with S30V.

Edit: it's also about as easy to sharpen and the corrosion resistance is much better than what you'd except from a technically non-stainless steel (much better than carbon steels like 1095). Also check out Carpenters Micromelt PD#1 and Z-Wear. Great steels.

Don't know anything about the company, but they do a small fixed blade in the same 3V steel
Bark River Necker
Also check out the Les George VECP in 3V. It's more money, about $175, but a really nice knife. He hardens them to 60RC so it won't be quite as tough as something similar at 58RC, but way tougher than other steels and tougher than you'll likely need.

Mick Strider claims that he is a combat veteran.
Mick Strider claims that during service, he developed a spinal injury, causing him to lose jump status, resulting in his discharge. Mick Strider later claims that this injury led him to incur disciplinary action (whether Article 15 or other not known), and be discharged from service as an E1
Court documents involving a libel & defamation case against Mick Strider include a settlement where he states his discharge from Army service as an E1, and barred from reenlistment. Part of the settlement agreement includes statemens refuting combat claims and "black ops" experience. Military.com shows Mickey Ray Burger as having a final rank of E1.

Mick Strider claims that during sentencing, the prosecutor was supposed to ask for his sentence to be one year’s service in Somalia, with his pay forfeit. Given the nature of the other claims, this service is intimated to be Special Operations in nature, especially given his attempts to tie it to the deaths of Rangers in Mogadishu during that time.
Mick Strider does not “serve for a year in Somalia” and was instead sentenced to 5 years in prison.
After release from prison in 1998, Mick Strider started Strider Knives.
Following Mick Strider’s release from prison, he builds a reputation that his products are based on Special Operations and combat experience. Numerous magazine articles are written alleging to this experience and how it makes his product a better choice.
Mick Strider makes numerous statements online that his is a combat veteran, and makes references to carrying and using firearms, despite revelations that he is, in fact a convicted felon.
Current collaborations with other businesses list Mick Strider as former Special Operations personnel.
