I bought this knife for extreme duty in the woods. With this knife I can quickly setup shelter and fire. If I cannot also take an axe, I know I can do witout when I have this bad boy. It takes and keeps an edge.

Given it's thickness, it can batton through wood readily without worry that the blade will break. It is a high carbon steel and not stainless, so it will rust. You just need to be aware of this and maintain it like you would any other valuable tool you have. I take a small can of WD-40 with me if I am making fires on the trip. It helps when battoning through wood and to dress the blade if it is damp or snowing out.

The sheath is a cheap ballistic nylon with a clear plastic blade protector. When you get the knife you will notice it rattels in the sheath. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the plastic blade protector out of the sheath. Then take a heat gun or torch to it, and VERY CAREFULLY, heat up the material until it becomes slightly pliable. Then push it in so as to make the two flat centers closer. let it cool for a minute and insert your blade. If it is a snug fit you are done. If not, re-heat it and press some more. Once done, use some gorilla glue, or something similiar, to glue it back in the sheath.

I love this knife. I am an avid adventurer and this knife comes everywhere with me for wood processing it cant be beat. I have batoned many pieces of wood with this in all climate type. I am from the northeast so it sees all types of weather. I beat on this thing everytime I go into the woods. If u keep it oiled up it will not rust mine has almost all the coating off from hard use. I definately recommend the R-TAK 2. I will be picking up another in the near future.

Great knife, well made and definitely the right size if you are planning on using this for extreme wooded survival. However, it is soooo large that I will probably not bring it with me very often. If you are looking for a survival knife that you can bring with you on an ordinary backpacking trip (3-5 days in the late spring/summer) this probably isn't the right knife to bring. You would be better served with a Fallkniven F1 or the Cold Steel SRK. That said, if you want a large knife that easily processes fire wood, this is it.

Conclusion: Best for serious winter survival or any trip where weight is not an issue.

Use:
The RTAK-II, Wow! Why would anyone need a knife this big? Here's why: Choping wood. Though heavy for a knife, it is lighter and more versatile than an axe. I've also used it as a machete. The grind angle of the actual blade (past the full flat grind area) is uncommonly stout. This means the blade will be very strong but you will never get that "shaving sharp" edge like a finer grind angle might provide. It will still take hair from your arm and pass the "thumbnail test" but the (eh hem) Philosophy-of-Use here is centered around chopping, de-limbing (trees I mean), and in a pinch digging.

Other Impressions:
This is a good looking knife. Crinkle finish on the full tang blade. You will feel like you have a custom-made survival knife. The nylon sheath is good, lots of mounting options. One thing, when wearing this setup on your belt: you should use the leg tie, otherwise you and your awesome new knife will get tangled up and go tumbling down the hill together.

I don't know the specifics but those who were involved in designing this knife have since started making them independently. I think the new RTAK-II is called the Junglas or something like that. It costs more, but it comes with a Kydex sheath that seems superior to the sheath that comes w/the RTAK-II.

I've had my RTAk II for about a year now. This is an excellent knife for around camp or pack with you on a long hike. Its tough, durable and heavy enough you can leave your hatchet behind. The scabbard that comes with it is well made too. I plan to pick up a second one.

this knife is just as the reviews say it is on youtube, except i say not just a big knife but rather a knife and a half, if you want a very large knife meaning handle and blade this is the one for you , blade is 1095 carbon steel 3/16 inch thick and measures 10-3/8" long, handle is linen micarta 6-3/8" attached with countersunk cap head screws (6) three on each side, knife is 16-3/4" long full tang construction extending beyond grip handle in the rear with lanyard hole and less than
leathal extension or for hammering.
the sheath is of good quality, it is not the best but i would not let that deter me from buying this knife, i am very satisified with the knife and overall package.

A heck of a lot of knife for the money. I am a big fan of most Ontario fixed blades, they are typically made in the USA, reasonably priced, and tougher than a Chuck Norris, John Wayne love child. Most of the reviewers have already covered this knife in depth so I'll try to fill the gaps. The closest competitor this knife has is the ESEE Junglas, which, I'm not going to lie, is a slightly better quality knife but for almost twice the money. You can spend a lot more money and get a little bit better, but not a lot better. This knife does require maintenance, the sheath does suck but is serviceable. Hey, they had to save money somewhere. This knife is excellent for wilderness survival and camping. It's heavy, but lighter than a hatchet and can do everything a hatchet can do from cutting down small trees to splitting logs.

Have I cut logs into kindling? Oh yeah.

Have I dropped it on concrete? You bet.

Have I shot it with Han Solo's customized laser blaster on full blast? Um...no, Han Solo was a fictional character, but have I generally neglected to keep it clean? Yep, almost like I hate it, but I have failed to damage it unintentionally or otherwise.

The best part is it wasn't so expensive that if it does get dinged, I'm not going to curse the gods or experiment with alcoholism. I'll just warranty it or buy another.

Update: The sheath is worse than you think. I have seen where some people use a heat gun to form the plastic sheath insert to the knife so that the knife does not rattle while sheathed. So I decided to do the same thing but when I removed the plastic insert I found a folded piece of plastic that had been hot glued together and then glued to the nylon outer sheath. This is incredibly shoddy quality.
