I dont own it, but I bought a BT for my brother (LE officer). It is great! Has a very solid feel and has kept an edge for the last year and a half (and he has used it as a "tool" more than once). He carries it daily on call outs and on his duty belt, and has not complained once of the weight (it is pretty stout), but he is a blade guy...
Hope this helps. You will not regret it if you do decide to make the purchase.

I've got 3 Striders but none of the models you mentioned, mine are all folders. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed in anything they get from Strider.

I have been looking at getting one of those models for a while and I just wanted to know because it is alot of money for a Strider, where I can get a Kabar for quite less.....

I'm a folder guy myself and don't know much about Kabars but they seem to be well thought of. My Striders are extremely tough and I think I could carve my way out of a car wreck with either my AR or SMF, even the little PT would do it if I could get a good enough grip on the little bugger. Striders are my choice but Kabars are probably good too. They just don't make a knife I want.... :)

Normally I like folders myself, I would love a Strider folder, but I am contemplating a career move into the military..... plus I love buying gear along with guns and I have not had a new knife in a while and if I am going to go into the military I want to get a fixed blade knife.....

I bought a KaBar when I sent out a package to the adoptasniper program, and even though you can get one for under a hundred bucks, I would much rather (if my life depended on it) spend the $350, or whatever it is to get the strider. The BT I bought for my brother is MUCH more sturdy, and more nicely finished than the KaBar, and the KaBar was a great knife.
Just my $0.02

I saw a picture of a large Bowie style strider on ebay and it was amazing how thick it was.... I am definately sold on a Strider.....

The first photo below is of my Strider BT-SS (SS stands for Serrated Spine). The second photo shows two Strider knives, the knife on the left with the Spear Pointed blade is the Strider MT-L-SS and the Tanto Blade on the right is a Strider BN-SS. I love my Striders and please be aware that if you buy any Strider, you'll never be able to buy just one!!! Enjoy. I have other Strider photos if you are interested.

As the others have said here, you won't be disappointed with ANY Strider knife!!! Go to both Plaza Cutlery and to True North Knives to view images of Striders!! These are two of the largest distributors of Strider Knives!! Hope this helps. :)
