Bought as a gift which was well received. Recipient really liked the light weight and flexibility of the knife. Handle fit well in the hand.
The knife is a nice size, attractive and well made and finished. A definite great deal for the money. My only gripe is that the liner lock is not as strong as it should be, allowing some closing type movement. Thanks for the good deal and the opportunity to provide a review statement.
Outstanding performance in splitting kindling. Works flawlessly and has perfect grind to break down dry wood. Sharp enough to creat feather sticks on the smaller pieces. Much safer than using a hatchet and saves abuse on your knife. Is e wooden baton to strike.
One might wonder what an old woman who lives in a large city might want with a froe. There's the large street tree in front of my house, which loses branches in a big wind, and the 3 story maple that shades my back yard, but must be trimmed to provide some sun for my lettuce and tomato plants. So I do some wood processing: because I grill my beef steaks, chicken thighs and lamb steaks on my hibachi over a wood fire (no petroleum laced charcoal, thank you). The wood smoke enhances the flavors and I have to fit the wood into my little cast iron hibachi. So...I need a froe, and this one fits the bill.
Nice tool, it lives in my camper and is there when I need it.
What a great tool! I would totally recommend this if you are a camper or if you have a fire place or wood burning stove. It's perfect for breaking down smaller pieces of wood. I use it for our fire pit but I am taking it on a camping trip in June. The price is right also. The sheath is very basic but that is to be expected. If you ever break down wood for fires this is a great tool to have
This is great tool to keep in your vehicle or throw in a pack when going out in the back country. No more worrying about should i or should i not use my primary knife to split up fire wood, This fro is designed to do all the wood splitting so you can keep your knife edge sharp for all your cutting and slicing tasks. It is comfortable in the hand and you can use it for much more than just a wood splitting, feather sticks, draw knife , it is a versatile tool., well worth the price and the quality is excellent.
Have owned this knife for 39 years, it takes a lot of work with an oil stone the first time but holds a fine edge even after field dressing and skinning 3 or 4 animals it only needs a quick touch with a fine stone. It feels good and is well balanced in the hand, I like the synthetic handle as it holds up well with age. I will admit the knife has had a pampered life as i have 2 other knives that i use for rough work and around camp, it looks used but will outlast me and will live on for many more generations if properly cared for.
