I have a Gunting, and yes, the blade is useful for a wide range of tasks, not just MBC. Except for the ramp, the blade is very conventional. It is my EDC, except for certain circumstances when I may want a specific blade for a certain reason. It works best with a sheath, since the clip's position causes the knife to "ride high" when clipped into a pocket. This does not bother me at all, since I do not trust a pocket clip to retain a valuable knife under strenuous circumstances or when moving through areas with brush or vines.
