Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Blade Sharpness
Huge. Maybe a bit too huge.
Something the stats don't really impress is just how enormous this knife really is. I have pretty big hands (~4"/10cm across the knuckles) and it's borderline too big for me. The linen micarta handles are decently grippy. I don't like the texture to the powdercoating on the blade, my personal preference would have been for something smooth, lower friction and easier to clean. The sheath is what you'd expect from a knife at Knifecenter's price, I'd have been disappointed by it if I'd paid full retail and will replace it with a leather sheath soon. The design is Ok, but the plastic insert is too lightweight for the weight of the knife and it rattles, which irritates me. It'll do fine for strapping to a pack though. I'm not sure you'd want to carry something this big on a belt. The blade sharpness out of the box leaves a lot to be desired. Even for a big 'chopper' like this, it wouldn't cut paper and that's too blunt. You don't want to be having to put a lot of force behind a blade this big or it'll bite you bad.

I love this knife!!!
What a great chopper. I have used mine a lot. I've batoned through a pile of wood at this point. I've chopped a lot of dead trees down too. (I highly recommend using a lanyard while chopping. A blade this weighty will tire out the forearms and it only takes one slip for a nasty injury. I have seen it an RTAK fly out of friends hands more than once. [They lean the hard way sigh...] I always wear gloves too, especially while solo batoning. Not to mention eye protection. Those have literally saved me from blindness more than once. PSA over) My RTAK II has stood up to all this use and asked for more. The blade has never chipped out either. I have had mine going through dry but stubborn logs and seen the blade bend and flex, but it always returns to it original straightness. The original blade coating on the other hand did not last very long. A small complaint as I use WD40 on my RTAK regularly to prevent rust (1095 while being a great wilderness blade steel will rust) but an area that could use improvement none the less. Personally I think the wear gives it character. I feel comfortable wearing this on my belt around the camp site or waking around in the bush looking for fire wood. If I was going on a hike with a pack on I would attach it to the pack. It is a bit weighty. The sheath it comes with is adequate to store the knife, has a good belt loop and is of average quality for a nylon/plastic insert sheath, but it is not an excellent sheath. Having said that I find it adequate for my use and I am not complaining. Especially at this price point! I have enjoyed and used my RTAK II for 4 years now. It comes on every single wildness/camping/cottaging adventure I go on. I recommend it! I even cut my wedding cake with it in fact!

Great camping knife
Nice thick blade that splits wood with ease. Seems to hold an edge fairly well. A great choice for the minimalist outdoorsman. The sheath leaves a little to be desired but overall I have no regrets about this purpose built blade.
