I've been using this knife for a while and decided to post a review of it. So for this review I'm just going to see how it does with making a fire. I am also using a Bacho Laplander folding saw and a Vaughan mini hatchet to process fire wood. So first I sawed about 5 poplar logs with the Bacho and split them into small pieces with the Vaughan. the nessmuk made feather sticks very easily The spine was really good for scraping the inside of the poplar bark to make a birds nest and also made some good sparks off a fero rod. The edge held up very well and could still shave a little after making the feather sticks. The sheath it comes with seams really nice and sits at a good height on my belt Also don't know if any of you guys use these for kindling but the work really good even in the rain there just dead green briers. So my opinion on the knife is that it's a great buy if you know how to sharpen knives as it comes fairly dull from the factory, but once you get it sharpened it holds and edge very good, the sheath is probably worth almost the price you pay for the knife, the handles are very well done I didn't notice any hot spots when carving with it.
