Pros: Material Quality, Durability, Sharpenability, Design
great budget bushcraft knife
The 7" blade is thinner than I was used to for a field knife, but its worked great for everything but battonning. It doesn't split wood as well as thicker bladed knives, but does get it done. Anyhow, it has turned out to be a suprisingly tough and useful field knife. I rehandled it because the original scales aren't epoxied on, just held with relativly weak cutlery rivots. I watched a few youtube videos on how to do it, and then just did it. It came out great, and I now feel more connected to the knife and am proud of my work. It fits fine in a Ka Bar leather sheath. I guess the mountain men who trapped and explored the west with this knife in the 1800s had it right all along.
