Real Good Knife
I use this knife for about everything. It's real good. You can do about anything with it you need to do. You can clean fish with it, clean deer or other game with it. I've had this knife for years, and it's got wet and in the snow and all that, and hasn't rusted or anything. So, it's a nice buy.

There's nothing i can say that has not already been said.It all comes down to what YOU want.Are there other knives out there that can do everything the TM does? Sure.At the same price? Yes,some for less$.My TM has not done anything "special" when compared against my BK9,or Boker Vox Rolled Camp Knife in D2.Or my Ontario Rtak10.Or my Ontario Rat7. Or even against my Esee 6.Pound for pound the Esee6,and Rat7,are PowerHouses.Though it's blade is well over 3 in.longer than my Esee6,and Rat7,they can hold their own,especially batoning.But it's what I wanted,so i got one.Get what YOU want and can afford.Don't worry what someone says.The TM IS a good knife.Just don't expect Herculean strength,and Excaliber sharpness.They don't make knives like that.Keep your expectations in check.It's a knife.Not an axe.

Exceptional Tool, Exceptional Price
Typically I carry two fixed blade knives in my kit. My smaller bushcrafting knife is a Mora Carbon Bushcraft. I bought the Trail Master as my heavy task master. Heavy chopping, batoning, machete work, etc. I've only given the knife a taste of these duties so far but it has performed flawlessly. Very good steel, came with a hair-shaving, razor sharp edge, good, slightly forward balance and very comfortable handle. While I could have spent hundreds of dollars more on more exotic, custom made blades, I am very confident that this Cold Steel Trail Master is going to provide me with many years of durable service, requiring an occasional sharpening and protective oil wipe of the blade. The Secur-ex sheath holds the knife very securely and seems more than adequate for it's purpose. Plenty of lashing holes, good drainage, and a unique dangler belt loop. Very pleased. Would much rather keep a high carbon blade in this than a moisture retaining leather sheath.
