After using this knife for half a year, I have to say it is a great field knife.
I have used this knife for fire craft.
I have beat it through many branches and saplings used for building shelters.
It worked just fine for carving and fine work.
I even beat it into a tree and stood on it for fun.
There was not one task that I threw at this knife it did not handle. I would not hesitate to recommend this knife.
