5 Star Knife 2 Star Cost
This knife is worth every penny. I have been using it as a bush knife for about a month and it has taken care of everything I have thrown at it. I am super impressed with the steel, its durability and ease of sharpening. The handle is very comfortable with no hot spots, the guards are small but they work. The shape of the blade makes this one of the best if not THE best machete/camp knife combos I have every tried. The sheath is exceptionally nice and though there is a bit of rattle to it when the knife rests inside it is 10x better than those silly nylon sheaths you normally get for a machete. This is a full tang blade that is rounded off at the ricasso so this makes it less likely to ever snap. The lanyard holes are very useful and I have made a lanyard "D" guard for mine to prevent slipping. Overall, this is probably the best purchase I made in 2013 when you factor in cost and usability. Wrist size branches just melt when the blade hits them. I have been majorly impressed by this knife.
