Excellent Camp Blade
Great for chopping and heavy cutting chores, love the near 1/4 " blade thickness. Very strong blade. Would like more weight in the handle to balance this blade out as it is very top heavy.

Best bowie knife for the price
My favourite cold steel fixed blade. This knife is affordable and well built. The Blade is thick but light and fast. Not the best chopper in the world but one true all purpose knife. I have used this knife mostly on wood and the steel performance is quite good. It's easy to sharpen and so far I've not experie ced any chipping, denting or bending of the edge. Even if the blade is thick, the knife is light and fast. The tip is almost sharp, which is a pain for my use because when I do batoning with it I destroy a lot of batons. Anorher downside of the knife is the sheat. It's sturdy and locks the knife in place quite well, but I don't like the edge touching the hard kydex... It ruins the sharpness of the blade. Anyway, I'm very happy with this knife, it's one of the more versatile, though and beautiful knives I've ever seen. There are better performing knives in terms of edge holding, rust resistance or other characteristics, but the o-1 trailmaster is pratically unbeatable considering the price/quality ratio.

Great knife
Really great knife, great for survival. Very sharp. This is a huge knife surprisingly light but good for chopping chunks of wood. You could build a log cabin with this thing! Good grippy handle feels sturdy and absorbs some shock from batoning. I would reccomend bringing this knife and a smaller knife for finer tasks when out in the wilderness. You also get a good sheath with the CSTM. Thoroughly recommended.
