Ahhh the condor Hudson bay knife... After being a butcher for 38 ,plus years I have to laugh at folks talking about performance and blade quality... Most butchers who come to work for me can't sharpen a knife much less these guys trying to reinvent an already great knife. Thick..sure it is but I made a few strokes on a true butcher steel and she shaved nearly half the hair off my forearm. I personally thinkinor chopping is OK but logging should be done with an Axe or better yet a saw. After working a second job as a wildlife contractor the word survival is s bit humorous as well. I live on the east coast not in Alaska so my survival amounts yo hours not days and this knife is all anyone will need for an over night camp or hunting trip. Of course it isn't the best skinner but is a great chopper and steak knife as well. It does good with briars in the cleat cut sections and is quite functional in all aspects of trapping or hunting when given an opportunity to shine. If you are a weekend critic keep your money, but if you are a true realist and know the outdoors give this knife a try!!
