Top Customer Reviews
The blade is heavy, comes sharpened fairly well, and even the typically redundant saw-teeth have a good edge on them. I am by no means a small person, so this knife works well for me. It may be a bit too big for others.
The handle and handguard are METAL. Yes, it adds to weight, but it's not going to be as prone to cracking during lateral blade movement as a plastic/kydex/playdoh/etc handle would be. Also, the tang appears to go halfway through the handle, right up to the hollow for the fishing gear. There is a small hole through the side of the handle that looks to be part of the mounting of the handle to the blade, however, it is the same diameter as the cordage that attaches the sheath to your leg, and could be used for lashing the knife to a pole for use as a spear.
The knuckle guard is metal and is removable by unscrewing the compass pommel, sliding the bottom of the guard to one side, and then sliding the guard down the blade. Good construction on this point...the guard won't come off unless you want it to.
The compass actually works and the housing is all metal. Weighty, but it won't break from side impacts. The 180 degree azimuth on the side of the blade is actually carved/lasered/nibbled in, not just painted on.
In the handle is a sealable tube. Inside that are a couple of fishing hooks, weights, a bit of line, matches, and a spare scalpel blade in antiseptic packaging. On the side of the tube is a listing of the alphabet in morse code.
The sheath is a kydex scabbard inside of nylon, can be worn on the belt, and can be fastened to the thigh with the provided cord or, you can replace the cord with paracord/shoelaces/etc.Read more ›
The Survival Kit
Other than the old military style can opener and maybe the snare, most of it is fairly cheap and borders on being junk. I take good care of all my tools regardless of use or price so I still have most of it. As an earlier reviewer said, you will probably want to swap out most of it for your own stuff.
The blade and handle are of average to marginal quality in both design, materials, fit, and finish. The saw teeth on top of the blade are mostly superfluous. The "D" shaped hand guard is a nice addition being metal. However it isn't exactly sturdy since it is not a structural part of the handle. The blade is some form of stainless steel, holds a reasonable edge reasonably well. The blade tang goes part of the way into the handle held in place by a screw. My blade got loose after having at a dead tree. If memory serves I think I got it tight again with a deep well socket.Read more ›
I'm not going to do another complete review because the one posted by Skull Fungus is superlative. Read it. Digest it. And then let me expand upon one thing. This knife is BIG. The blade itself is over 15" long. That is really long, folks. For a comparison, go down to your kitchen and look at a chef's knife if you have one. Those blades are usually 6"-8" inches long.
So, like buying "magnum"-sized condoms, let's be honest with ourselves and decide how much knife we really need. The knife itself is extremely well made and truly has many great accessories. Like Fungus, I'm pretty amazed at what you get here for the price at which you get it. No, you're not getting surgical steel. However, this blade will put up with years of use and abuse with proper care, and it's definitely not falling apart on you anytime soon. In the hands of someone who knows what he or she is doing and respects the blade, this could be an invaluable tool and could absolutely help a person survive in a wilderness environment.
In the hands of someone who doesn't know what he or she is doing and/or doesn't respect the blade, we're talking about losing fingers. Or worse. And no, I'm not kidding.
Bottom line -- awesome knife, great extras, but BIG. Just make sure you want/need this much knife!
