I got one a few months before eastmans was giving them away, I started useing it on my antelope this year but went back to my buck knife as well , because the havalon was flimsy. I take the havalon on backcountry hunts, if I need to really save on wieght.......other than that I like something a little more, heavy duty. I would say the only benifit is the weight savings, the blades are a pain in the ass to change when your hands are bloody. Not to be to hard on havalon........but they're really a over priced razor blade.
