I got my CRKT Dogfish today, took longer for Best Service Store (through Amazon) to ship it from Kansas City, MO to me than it did for Koki to ship my Hiro AS from Seki to my house during the same time.
The sheath was not loose as many seemed to have issues with, it was too tight for the first draw from sheath, actually. Seems just right after removing the knife a few times. It came with a kydex belt clip that is a bit small for my thick or wide belts, can be mounted to the sheath in a few positions.
The blade is a bit smaller than I expected, but a nice size for neck carry. There is a slight recurve near the heel, which I don't like, factory bevel was a bit uneven and not sharp (but that is expected). The tip came slightly blunted. I gave it a quick touch up on Chosera 1k, sharpened easily enough but I need to do some more work to get the edge acceptable to me.
I am satisfied, so far, for $15 and it opens bottles!
I just got mine as well.

It's a really soft steel. Something like AUS or 8cr13mov?
To be honest, I found the soft steel to be a bit of downer.
For me, I definitely prefer a necker with hard steel (60+ rockwell).
But of course, the bottle opener is really kind of nice.
So I just looked it up.
The CRKT version:
Good lord! :eek2:
How is your sheath?
Maybe i just got a lemon (even though there are plenty of stories of loose sheaths to go around)
Pretty loose, and rattles like a diamondback.
I'm not even sure if this is a kydex or just some cheap molded plastic.
But at this point, I don't think it's gonna fall out while I'm jogging or anything.
I'm not going to mess with it until the detent gives out.
Mine is just right, guess I got lucky.
