Good General Purpose Knife
I became interested in this knife after having seen it being used at a camp outing I was attending. I watched as a young man batoned with it and made some feather sticks. He was pretty skillful at doing it and the knife was razor sharp. I watched him put the knife in a custom made sheath, then he proceeded to start a fire with the wood he prepared.I ask him what kind of knife it was. He pulled it proudly out of the sheath and told me that it was his new companion at camp. I ask what was so special about the knife and he said "It just works". Then he let me handle it. I was surprised how sharp it was after watching him do all that work with it. It held an edge nicely. It also felt good in my hand. A very controllable knife. And after he told me what he paid for it, well, I had to buy one.Since I bought it I have put it to used during several camp outings. Its really not a knife that one would do fine detailed work with, the blade is too long and wide. But it is an excellent knife for allot of the heavier duty tasks one does while in the outdoors. It holds an edge well. The sheath has allot to be desired, that's why I gave it a lower rating. Not really excited about the handle material either, but it feels good in my hand and appears to be quite durable, at least so far. But as far as a good general outdoor knife is concerned, I think it was a good buy.
