This knife is a heavy duty knife with a sharp tanto blade that is plenty thick. It is a good survival knife.

Mark S. from Orillia Ontario, Canada
The blade is only profiled on one side. the concept is great, however, the finger holes are too small for a full grown man. Improve these issues and get top marks.

Love this knife- lost one lucky that I had ordered a spare and had it put up or I would have been more upset than I was. Just ordered me another one. You will not be sorry that you ordered this knife

Frank E. from South Bend, IN
The blade is sharp and very nice. The only issue I had with the knife is that it takes a little bit to lock the blade in the open position. Other than that, I really like this blade.

Great knife I'm a farmer and I use it to cut plastic and strings off of round bales and its part of my every day carry about 1 a week I sharpen it back up.

Joe E. from West Palm Beach.FL
The knife is well balanced and very appealing to the eye, and blade comes reasonably sharp. The one thing I do no not like about it, is that it is slow to open. A spring assist would be nice.
