I have to say. It's really hard not to like this knife. This is a seriously underrated blade. Camp yes, kitchen work sure thing. Light on the belt. Decent sheath. Low maintenance stainless. Just a little no drama workhorse! Perhaps the most underrated in all of Knifedom. I just think it falls between the cracks. Too expensive for for the cheap Mora crowd, and too cheap for the expensive Mora crowd. And not taken seriously by anyone one else. Even myself somewhat. I have owned and liked this knife since it was released. And a 2000 before that. But until this weekend, I had never even snapped a picture of it. We had no power and I needed to to a lot of knife type jobs. My pack was sitting on the kitchen table. Because I needed candles, flashlights and other assorted pack stuff. The Kansbol was in there. So I strapped it on. Kitchen work was first. I had some frozen meat half thawed, that I needed to deal with. And some fresh stuff that needed to be froze when the power came back on. We sliced and trimmed chicken breasts, pork roasts and a London Broil. All done with butcher like precision by the Kansbol. Then came a round of peppers and onions. Sliced and diced no problems. Later it was decided a steak in the coals was a good idea for dinner. Breaking down some kindling and tinder for a fire is a breeze with this one. The squared spine shaves tinder nicely. It would certainly throw sparks from a ferro rod if you chose to. I needed some snow to fill a few coolers and canning pots for the fridge and freezer. I needed to break through the crust and get to some good clean snow. Not wanting to stomp on it with my dirty boots. I used the Kansbol to open up a hole. On the way back down from the snow. I spotted a Poplar tree that had snapped off in the wind that took our power. So we stopped and harvested some inner bark tinder. With all the domestic stuff sorted. It was time for a fire. Funny thing about fires. They work, grid up or grid down. I'm sure there is a lesson in there somewhere. The wind storm had left us dry kindling everywhere. Add in a slight breeze and this took off like gang busters. Not all that snow went into the fridge. I mean fire and beer seem made for each other, I just decided this unsung hero deserved some praise. It truly is a great little tool. It just does what needs doing without ever whimpering. It derserves some respect.
