I've used it to split small kindling for backyard bbq and a fire pit. I've batoned and split 2-4 inch fire logs. Wouldn't go bigger, after all this is a small knife.
That's where a problem popped up. I was batoning a 3 inch log, and a screw and the insert in the handle came loose. I know I'm batoning a larger log than this knife is meant for, but the knife handles great. In fact, it works pretty damn good for that. I can still slice up steaks and though it won't split paper, it almost could after batoning. It held an edge really great, and no chipping what so ever. A quick few strokes on a strop, and it was back to slicing paper sharp.
Back to the loose screw. I undid the screws on the handle, and the barrel insert had split. The knife is sturdy enough to baton small logs, the handle feels great and handles muck and mud aweseome, but the hardwear sucks.
The knife and micarta handles can handle some decent abuse. The hardwear that attaches them...not so much.
I contacted Ontario by email, and they responded really quick. They emailed back within a couple of days.They've offered to send in some replacement inserts. I'll take them up on it, and hopefully, not split the threaded barrels inserts.
I may try finding some replacements elsewhere if they don't work out. The knife is great, holds an edge great, handles great.
The fact that this knife comes with a Tek-Lok system was a huge selling point to me. I love using Tek-Loks on my knives for putting them scout-style on my belts (horizontal) or for clipping onto molle-equipped bags/belts. On my smaller hydration backpack, the Tek-Lok clips to my shoulder strip perfectly and hangs the knife vertically handle-down. Quick access to my blade when I need it with a quick reach up to my chest and a quick pull.
Overall this knife is worth every penny and an amazing peice of steel!
Update: love this knife even more than I did before. So much so that the rat 3 will be my EDC from this point on.
