Svord Golok Indispensable
After doing much research online, I ordered this tool. Upon receiving it, I am impressed with the quality. Fit and finish are excellent. It is extremely sharp and the weight and balance of the Svord Golok make it a great choice for wood gathering and shelter building.The length is not too long or too short. It packs well and is handy for many camp chores.It is much more useful than a hatchet for every thing, except maybe driving nails, but I think in a pinch the side of the stout blade would accomplish this task too. The Miacrta handle fits my hand well and does not cause any discomfort during prolonged use. if there is any short coming it is the scabbard. Although well made of leather, I feel a ridged Kydex type scabbard with some lashing points would be a great improvementThe Svord Golok will be with me on all my backpacking and camp outings.It has become an indispensable piece of kit.
