Top Customer Reviews
1) I cut off the crappy handle wrap and re-wrapped with real 550 paracord, camo of course, and also added a paracord lanyard with a tight slip knot so I can pull-tighten it to my hand if needed for a safer no-slip grip on the knife should I ever use it for something potentially dangerous that may cause my hand to slip.
2) I cut a plastic insert from a milk jug for inside the sheath, folded it and dropped it snugly into the main compartment. With the fold on the bottom, the knife point can no longer poke through or wear the fabric.
3) I removed the string lanyard from the fire starter and replaced it with a matching paracord slipknot lanyard that is large enough to loop around the sheath and tighten down. Now, the tool is snug in it's outer pocket and lashed to the sheath so it can't fall out.
4) I put a far better edge on the knife. Pretty dismal out of the box, and that's what I fully expected. It's pretty soft steel, so I don't expect it hold an edge terribly well, but that's OK, I have plenty of far better knives I wear and use regularly.
I see this knife for what it is, a little back up edge for your cargo pants pocket, your car, your bug out bag, or your little day pack ... whatever. I don't really envision it on my belt. Also, it's nice to have a back up fire starting method. (I always carry a small container of Vaseline soaked cotton balls, magnesium, and a small Bic anyway.)
I really had fun just noodling with the product to customize it for myself. Bottom line, absolutely worth the six bucks. How in the world can you find entertainment cheaper than that and then have something in hand when it's over?
To start with, this knife comes with a fantastic firesteel fire starter. Firesteels of this size and quality typically cost more than what's being charged for this knife alone. So it wouldn't be bad to think of this as a good quality firesteel, at a great price, that just happens to come with a free knife.
Now, as for the knife, it's a perfectly acceptable knife, but it will need some work to get it into the proper condition.
First off, the nylon cording that was used to wrap the handle is very sub-par. It is not paracord by any means. So you will need to re-wrap the handle yourself, with your own paracord. You can find paracord here on Amazon at excellent prices. And there are wonderful videos on YouTube that show you different patterns and techniques for wrapping the handle to your preference.
Secondly, knife aficionados will want to put a new edge on the knife. (And if you're looking for an effective and easy to use knife-sharpening kit that won't break the bank, I strongly recommend the Lanksy Sharpening Stone System kits. I personally prefer their deluxe model. You will need the read the instructions, as it is a very unique sharpening system, but once you get your head wrapped around it, it is basically idiot-proof.) And third, the knife sheath leaves a little to be desired. If you're tossing this knife in a Bug out Bag or just keeping it in your toolbox or junk drawer, the sheath will do just fine. But if you're planning on keeping this knife on your belt and it will see heavy use, then you'll want to upgrade the sheath.
Now as for the handling of the knife, I could not be happier with it. And it is my favorite knife for just about any job. It is a smaller knife, but I really like the feel of it in my hand (once I double wrapped it with paracord). I'm a bigger guy (6' 2"), so I have large hands, but this small knife still feels really comfortable in hand. I feel like this would be an ideal knife for field dressing or fish gutting, to say nothing of light to medium general use.
I have purchased a handful of these knives, and have been happy with each one. I did re-wrap the handle and put a new edge on all of the knives. I keep one in my toolbox, one in the car, another in the survival kit in the back of my car, and another for general use around the house (even just opening bags of snacks and the like). I have put an extremely sharp edge on each of the knives. One of them sees a pretty fair amount of use, and it still has a fantastic edge that hasn't required any maintenance to re-hone the edge. And while I can't speak as to the high carbon content of the steel, I have been very happy with how this knife keeps its edge.
So all in all, I happily recommend this product. Just make sure you understand what you're buying. For a great low price, you're getting a fantastic firesteel, and a perfectly acceptable knife that will require a little work to get it the way you want it.
