Product Description

Fremont Farson Blade Survival Tool. Measures approximately 5 1/2 long x 3 1/4 wide x 1/8 thick. One-piece high carbon stainless construction with bead blast finish. Curved D-Blade design with sharpened exterior edges. Interior hand guard. Black paracord wrapped handle and lanyard (Contains approximately 8 ft. of paracord). Black nylon belt sheath. The Farson Blade is an idea that comes from an ancient tool found in the Great Red Desert near Farson, Wyoming. This remote area has many elk, antelope and other large game. The people who lived in this remote area developed crude tools that would cut, chop, slice and skin for the daily needs. This is a modern manufactured version of the original tool. Also ideal for chopping kindling and many other tasks including chopping vegetables for dinner. Weight: 6.1 oz. tool only. 6.8 oz. with sheath.

I can confirm the Farson Blade is made in China. I normally wouldn't take issue with this except for how they do their best to make people THINK this product is made is the USA. Their advertising is disingenuous at best. In actual fact, while they have a license to put their name on the pre-existing design of a U.S. knifemaker, the sum total of their own designed and manufactured U.S. products is exactly z-e-r-o. So much for their commitment to, as stated on their home page, "try and make them in the U.S.A.". They are appealing to your patriotism so you can support Chinese manufacturing jobs.
Oh, if you are still interested, according to the company head Mike Jones, this item is made of 7CR17 which is almost identical to 440A composition wise. It is heat treated to 56-58Rc (this information courtesy of this items review on thefirearmblog.com).
It is basically an Ulu knife, but harder to hold, and in fact was kind of fun to use for food (salad) prep in the kitchen. But as a survival tool I cannot think of a single reason to choose this over, say, a Swedish made Mora you can get for $13 or a knife actually made in the U.S.A., a Buck Vantage Avid made of the excellent 13C26 Sandvik Stainless Steel for $30! How the Farson Blade could be made in China and still cost almost $39 (shipped) is beyond me; maybe they are banking it to pay for the lawsuit that is going to be filed when someone squats down and has their thigh laid open as this tool slices fight through the totally inadequate sheath? Ahhhh, sorry, that was kinda tacky put please take away the point - replace the sheath by making a kydex one for a couple bucks or line the edge of the included sheath with rivets or Chicago screws along the cutting edge portion.

***WARNING*** Made In China... I would have never purchased this tool if I had known it was made in China. This tidbit of information is not listed on Amazon and I even went to the manufactures web site before ordering and nowhere is this stated. You get a lot of information about being a knife maker out of Wyoming and their knives being made in the U.S.A. but what I ended up with is cheap P.O.S. that was made in China.

I bought this tool as it had been given fine ratings as an inovative and usefull survial tool. It took ages to get delivered and when I tried to use it in the wilderness it was evident that it has a sharp cutting edge but that it is difficult to handle the blade as its hold cuts into your fingers and wobbles easily huring your knuckles. If battoning it is also difficult to cut through Wood as it is difficult to Control and might fly away when hitting its back. Also the paracord gets damaged if you batton on it. Further it is not logical to remove the paracord every time you want to chop up some Wood. Some Reviews on youtube show how one might attacht it to a stick and use it as an axe. This also is a waste of time and only results in a stick witha wobbly blade on its end. Finally the thin lacks a sharp Point that is often wery usefull. In thing might be usefull for cutting sallad in the kitchen but not for the wilderness en never for a survival situation. For a EDS survival blad I would rather recommend the Schrade F16 neck knife.

This is an interesting design, one I am surprised isn't used more. I primarily purchased the knife to see how it could be improved. Needless to say it can be improved in many ways. Size, type of steel, maybe an optional micarta handle.
I will say that for the money I am okay with the tool.

Have had a lot of fun being creative with this tool. As a wildlife biologist I spend a lot of time in the field and really enjoy using this. Very versatile, have used it for skinning deer, chopping wood, working around the ranch and others. It has held its edge through a lot of wear and tear.
