This is the second knife Creek Stewart recommends for my kit. I bought this knife, the Becker BK2 and the Timberline Kommer Drop Point Stag Handle knives for my kits. The Becker and Blackbird I'll use for hunting and I'm already using the Timberline as my EDC. Very well made Blackbird and I understand Paul Scheiter designed this one. Very nice can't wait to use it.

Michael T. from Chandler, AZ
Plastic handle well contoured, good mold but sounds hollow so may not be reliable under stress. Not well balance. Head-heavy 440 steel blade can only cut cake...you will need to sharpen before use, however the hard tanto tip would probably pierce sheet metal effortlessly. Plastic sheath functional but also cheap feeling. Great $20 knife for disposable gear. Cool tactical styling gets highest marks.

Robert H. from PA
This is a well built knife. Just what we were looking for to make our survival packs complete. I am buying another one for my wife's pack also!!
Ron S. from Johnstown, PA
Wonderful knife! Came sharp and well built. I have used it when I go camping and keep it on my quad when I ride. Very good at taking dead branches off a tree to make a fire!

Pete C. from Fresno , CA
Only major concern is the thickness of the blade. I bought it to have as a companion during metal detecting in wooded areas so I won't be using for survival purposes. Honestly it's a nice looking knife, but for hard duty work I feel the blade will bend.
