This knife saved my life.
Having written about knives, and other serious outdoor gear, for more than 30 years, I'm rather proud of never having done what I call an "armchair review." Everything has been used hard before being written about by me, and a lot of gear has failed. When I reviewed the Brothers of Bushcraft knife from TOPS Knives for TACTICAL KNIVES magazine, it was winter, and more than 20 feet of snow had fallen on Whitefish Point, in the vast forests of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I was on the pack ice of Lake Superior, when I nearly fell into a natural trap. Two intersecting grades led to a 10-foot drop off the ice shelf, to open water, where multi-ton bergs smashed against the ice face with the force of a freeway wreck. As I slid down one grade toward certain death in the frigid water below, I fell to my hands and knees to slow my descent. Unable to reach the recovery equipment in the pack on my back (I was the guide, I wasn't supposed to need it), I yanked the BoB from its Kydex sheath, and planted it firmly in the ice, like an ice axe. Using it thus, I was able to literally claw my way back to safe footing. Sometimes a field test becomes a little too real, and this knife saved my life. -- Len McDougall, author of PRACTICAL OUTDOOR SURVIVAL, Editions 1 and 2.

Go to survival knife
This blade is heavy, but I like the solid feel. It handles battoning like a champ. Easy to sharpen. I like the kydex sheath, but it does ride high on the hip. I am getting used to it, but sometimes it gets in the way. Easy to add and remove to your belt, though. Tried the built in firestarter, but is pretty awkward to use with the indentation on the back. I would much rather use the back of the knife... but of course, it is enameled. I thought about stripping off the baked on black enamel, but you know, it really is tough and stands up to normal abuse much more than I thought it would. Didn't have the heart.
