👤I love the vintage marine knife. I'm retired from the army. I have never earned the right to wear the Marine knife. I would be upset if someone wore a beret without earning it. I was happy when this knife came out. I have a better crossguard and pommel, and it's the same knife. The flimsy crossguard was the only thing I disliked about the old marine knife. It seems to be what I wanted. The sheath was thought to be too thin. I don't think so after receiving the knife. If it were any thicker, that would add weight. Anyone who has had to carry everything around on their back doesn't want any more weight than necessary. There's a joke about soldiers throwing the cards out of their decks to conserve weight in one of the old Bill Mauldin WWII cartoons. Anyone who has a backpack for extended periods of time gets that. If it were not intended for a soldier to wear it all day long, I would recommend a thicker sheath. Extra thickness is more than a soldier wants. Some people said the knife was unsharpened. I don't see that as a concern because it has the proper angle. I can make my knife sharper. I think that's like complaining that the boots they ordered didn't show up. This has the same feel, blade, thickness, and size as the old marine knife. The crossguard and pommel are better. Without the logo. Five stars from me.

👤I love my first KA-BAR. The knife was recommended by a friend. He was absolutely correct that it was a great knife. I recommend this knife because of the quality of the leather sheath. The seller delivered a great product. The dogs head emblem made me like this one the most. There are knives with military emblems. I didn't want to be disrespectful to our brave soldiers that did serve, I did not serve this country. The emblem is perfect for me. Thank you!

👤The KA-BAR Marine fighting knife is the same as this knife, except it has a wider crossguard. It has the "Dog's Head" symbol stamped on the knife and sheath instead of "USMC", which appealed to me because I am not a military member, and do not feel I should be carrying a symbol for a service branch I do not belong to. I can't confirm that KA-BAR knives stamped with the Dog's Head eventually become more valuable, but I have read rumors that they eventually become more collectible. The KA-BAR has all the good features you will find in a similar knife, including a polished leather washer handle, a sturdy 1095 steel blade, and a perfectly-finished, evenly-ground blade. I like the fact that the Dog's Head has a wider area to hammer on things, which is something I often use my knives for. The longer crossguard gives you a lot of security to prevent your hand from slipping onto the blade. No two leather products will be the same. My handle and sheath have a lot more dark lines than the ones in the picture, and I think this makes them look unique and cool. I applied a few light coats of beeswax on the handle and sheath. The handle is very well treated, but the oil and beeswax darkened the sheath a bit, giving it a really cool color and smooth feel. The sheath for the knife is made in Mexico, but it appears to be of very high quality. My family has been buying great leather items from Mexico for years, if quality control is good, Mexico makes very nice leather products. The sheath is very sturdy and it fits the knife very well. This is a great knife for everyday use. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links here, so I'm going to use the internet to find out. 5 out of 5 stars

A black, ring textured thermoplastic elastomer handle with a powder coated high carbon steel. It's permissible. It's ideal for EDC because of its quick and easy access. The blade will not slip with the security of the finger choil and jimping. The knife has a ferro rod, sharpening stone and a lanyard hole.

👤Or batoning. This knife failed quickly, despite the video showing batoning. The wood is mostly bark. It's not the survival knife you want to depend on. Bushcraft? Not going to use this for dressing a small game. I'd be worried that the edge wouldn't hold up. What about camping? I'm not sure if I would want to use this at the campsite. This is a heavy knife for general household use. It has a good feeling. I thought it could perform.

👤If anyone complained about this knife, they could win a million dollars in the lottery. This is the best knife for the money. $30... You get a great sheath with a sharpening stone and fire starter kit. Then, you get a piece of steel in the shape of a knife, that can tackle all of your camping, hiking, and crafting needs. This thing is very sturdy and built like a tank. I love the grips on it. This isn't a complaint, but it has a little weight behind it. The weight and size of the grip is not a factor for me. I got it quickly and it has a good edge. That's fine, but not'shaving sharp'. I don't use stones for my knives unless I need a razor sharp edge. I find it ridiculous that some people don't want to use any knife that can't be shaved with. Anyway. I will never look for another knife in the same category if I have this knife for the purposes I bought it for. Thank you Schrade, and the sellers of Schrade, for the perfect knife deal!

👤It would be 5 stars. That coating is terrible. It's too thick. It makes it difficult to cut. It's easy to remove. You can see what the picture looks like now. I polished the blade and removed the coating. It's an excellent knife and a great value. I like it better than other knives. It comes with a sheath, sharpening stone, and small ferro rod, and is a far superior knife once you fix it up.

👤I am beyond annoyed that there isn't a recall on this knife. It is obvious that it is a hollow ground edge. A thin spot in the knife. That could be a problem with the process. The knife edge was popped out when the direction in the red oak grain was changed. Sharpens up to a razor sharp point. Don't try to split the wood. I don't know what it means but it's not a camp knife. This was taken on a backpacking trip. I did not use a saw to process wood. Don't waste your money. It's not worth much.

👤Schrade knives have been a favorite of mine for a long time. Schrade made some quality knives. I decided to give the SCHF36 Frontier a try because of my previous positive experience with the company. It looked like a well designed knife for around $34. I was pleasantly surprised by the knife's appearance. The black coating on the steel and nylon sheath was not good. The fire starter and sharpener were ok, but I would prefer a leather sheath. I decided to clean the knife. I dipped the knife in paint stripper to remove the black coating. I sanded the frame of the knife to a smooth finish after taking some 320 grit paper. I left the hollow ground part of the blade alone. The knife was sharp but not perfect. I cleaned the blade after using my Landsky sharpening system. What a difference it made. Good design, needs better sheath, loose the black finish that looks like under coating, and pay more attention to quality control are the bottom line.

👤If it didn't cause cancer, this would be a really good product. There is a label that says it may cause cancer. I tried to return it but Amazon wouldn't take it back, they just mailed me another one. Tf?

👤I wanted to add this tool to my collection of training materials. This unit fell short when compared to the other units in my training arsenal. It was a bit too stiff when compared to the other brands that I have. It feels like plastic in its rigidity. The design and specifications were not a problem, but the use of drills and other training methods made the rigidity of the design a problem. I have other units that are better than it, so I could only give it two stars.

👤A good size and weight practice knife.

👤This works well as a prop. It can be made into a realistic weapon with a bit of paint and Rub-n-buff. It is durable enough for rough handling. If you need that particular style, the training blades from the BladesUSA will work.

👤It's sturdy and well made. It's even balance makes it ideal for drills and knife exercises. It's a great weapon. It's well worth the investment. You will be happy with it. Highly recommended.

👤If you scrolled to the second photo, you would see how it looked in the photo. It is more of a hard plastic than rubber, so be careful. I bought it for a costume.

👤I use this to practice fight choreography. I have dropped it many times and it has not broken on me.

👤These daggers are safe and inexpensive. They are lightweight and blunt and they go with almost any armed cosplay. The price is very affordable. Good quality.

👤I threw it out because it had a warning.

👤It seems fine for the money. I was reading reviews on the fence. Everything has a prop 65 cancer warning. I'm not going to eat it. It's a fake knife that you can train on. My fishing rod has the same warning. It has chemicals like all plastic do, so it's just my thoughts.

👤It arrived quickly after I bought it at add on pricing. I was not sure what to expect but I was very happy with the price. The plastic seems to hold its shape well. It is great for practice in usage and disarms. Happy enough to buy two more. Would recommend.

👤It was bent when it arrived and snapped when the friend tried to fix it.

👤A fair price. I will use it in software. I won't be planning on putting it through a lot of stress. I was looking for what I was looking for. Good price and purchase.

The blade finish is black. The Sp2 has a large blade coated in a black powder finish. It has a Kraton handle that provides comfortable ergonomics and a rubberized grip. The handle is round. A full-guard for safe and secure use is what it is. The blade of the knife has a black powder coated finish. The use of high carbon steel makes it a tough blade that will take a very sharp edge. The Spec Plus Sp2 Air Force Survival Knife is an excellent tactical knife. It is ideal for general field use. And camp staff.

Brand: Ontario Knife Company

👤Pictures are compared with RC6 and A1 My knives are rough because I actually use them. I keep those edges sharp. This is a lot of knife with great features for a steal. The double guard handle is really nice. If you don't like the top guard, you can easily remove it with a saw. Keep both guards if you're pushing this blade into a tactical role. The handle is a little slippery. The shape locks your hand into it. The rubber O-rings fill in the gaps in the handle to increase grip. The edge can be sharpened if desired. Better option for people who can't carry knives with sharp edges, or who want to baton it through smaller pieces of wood. The black coating on the blade is very rough and does affect slicing potential, but at the same time it seems to wear quickly. The blade is not as sharp as a butter knife, but with a sharpening system you can easily reprofile it and get it to be very sharp within an hour. It's a $35 knife. It's worth it. I haven't been able to get the edge as sharp as my Fallkniven, but it's pretty darn close. The grip is the most comfortable out of the two more expensive knives. My ideal blade would be the A1, with the ESEE 6 blade thickness, and the OntarioSP2 handle. The updated molle sheath is better than the older one. I taped the gorilla to the pouch with a DC4 sharpening stone and ferro rod. This is a great knife for someone on a tight knife budget. I've been batoning tons of hardwood logs with it to see what it can do. A more capable blade. It's a great option for a chest rig. It's just enough knife for serious work.

👤The new sheaths are better than the old ones. You don't need the top snap if you jump out or mount it upside down. I'm thinking of using the guard's cross strap to remove mine. You could mount it in a number of different ways with the sheath. I like that they aren't sharpening the edge to make it better for buttoning. The edge was dull and there was no snap on the belt. The old school way of taking off the belt and sliding on the sheath is what you have to do. I don't expect everything to be perfect. The knife, sheath and price are great.

👤It is crazy for anyone to give this knife less than five stars. For the price, it can't be beat. I feel like I ripped off OKC by paying only $25 on sale. It came out of the box and was very sharp. It was sharp and easy to clean up. I wanted to see how well it would hold up being as cheap as it was, so I was outside beating the heck out of it, and it took it all with ease. It is holding up well and I have used it a bit. I like this knife. Anyone who buys this knife will be happy.

Special Survival Rubberized Sawback Tactical

If you are not 100% satisfied with the product, you can get a full refund. The blade length is 7 inches (17.78 cm) and the weight is 12.64 ounces. It isdurable: The blade is made of reliable 8Cr13MoV. A black, rubberized handle is made of high carbon steel. It's permissible. The sheath is black and easy to use. Have faith that the hand guard will keep the blade from slipping. The knife has a sawback edge on the spine of the blade.

Brand: Smith & Wesson

👤Unfortunate. I liked this knife, but... It's dangerous. The blade snapped off. I was lucky that it didn't hit my face.

👤HOLY CRAP! Went back to order another one and noticed the price had gone up. Only reason I didn't like it. This knife is a good one. It seems well constructed and has a great balance. A well trained individual could do a lot of damage. The butt end is good for hitting people. It has a similar texture to a meat tenderizer. This is a preliminary review, since I haven't field tested it myself. A tough guy and blade enthusiast. The sheath kept 5 stars away. The button popped, but that's beside the point. If you want to do any kind of MOLLE setup with it, you'll want a better sheath. It's flimsy and feels plastic. That's the only complaint I have. Someone who doesn't do reviews is very good at complaining. Cheers to you, patriots.

👤I carry a knife with me in the woods. It is easy to carry on a belt, molle strap or inside a pack. The knife was sharp. The back saw spine is only used for looks. It's not very functional, but it's a big knife.

👤The knife is modeled after the Ka-bar fighting knives based on its length, profile and weight. I returned a knife that was very toy-like with a bent hilt and a hard plastic handle and it was very slippery. The knife is better at night and day. The grip shape and texture is better. Is the bar good? No. It's over $20 instead of $100. If you use it for defense, it will last just fine. The saw-back is not worth much. It's worth the money and a keeper for my collection.

👤I received my knife and it was what I was expecting. The knife is five stars, but I have an issue with the sheath. The button snaps on my belt are not very tight, so when I pull it out or put it back, the snaps tend to come loose. I will fix it myself, but S&W will give it 5 stars. My wife told me to order her one the day it arrived, and my coworker bought one two days later.

👤A nice knife. Really strong steel. The ship was moving fast. After I cut it, it became really sharp.

👤It is relatively inexpensive to have a full tang steel blade. This knife can cut with the best of them, so don't waste your money on 'tactical' or 'cool' call of duty knives.

👤A quality build feels sturdy. That's not an issue, it's a little bigger than I thought. The saw teeth side is thick. It's not meant to be used as a saw.

👤The sawback works better than the one on the bottom because it moves 1/6in if you move it but that does not mean anything. (-):

👤I bought this knife because of the good reviews, but I was wrong to think it was a USA made product, it is engineered and designed in China, and I am going to rethink all my purchases. The knife is strong, has a good grip, but could have been sharper, but it is ok. There is a whistle on the lanyard and a fire starter rod that is on the back of the blade that makes sparks. I wish the descriptions pointed out that it was made in China.

👤The Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival has taken a lot of abuse over the years. It is one of my favorite economic knives. I was looking for a spare since it was discontinued, and luckily the non-advertised version came out from Gerber. It came with a great color. See the pictures. I recommend this product for hikers who need a good economic knife.

👤I read and watched many video reviews before buying this knife. A lot of people don't like the fact that this knife is made in China. Most of the things they own are made in China. I don't think so. The craftsmanship of this knife is not as good as that of a handmade $200+ knife, but it is a pretty good knife. It is tough as nails and holds an edge. Whatever you throw at it, it can handle it. I keep it in my emergency kit when it's not in use. Fire and earthquakes are the biggest natural disaster risks in my area. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a heavy duty knife.

👤The knife has been good. Within the first few uses, the firestarter broke. I returned the fire starter to the store. I haven't received the replacement or a response. Terrible customer service.

👤I just got a knife and I like it. This is the same as the Ultimate Knife but without all the markings. The subdued colors of this one make it much more appealing to me, even though I like the Bear Grylls style in general. The nuts and bolts are sturdy and you can feel it right away. The flint won't fall out if it hangs upside-down, and it snaps right into a sockets on the front of the sheath. It snaps firmly into place, but it's not easy to remove. It's much easier to pry loose the flint on my official Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro than it is to use the knife blade. The sheath can be worn vertically or horozontally. The sheath has a sharpening stone under it and can be opened with a strap. Since this isn't a Bear Grylls item, it's expected that this knife doesn't have a pocket in the sheath to hold it. Even though I haven't taken this knife out into the woods yet, I will not hesitate to rely on it for my needs when they arise. This knife is also available under a different listing with a custom engraving on the blade. I went with the original because I wanted the free prime shipping, but both knives are the same price.

7. Ontario Knife Company 8668 Sheath

Ontario Knife Company 8668 Sheath

Measures 10 inches overall. The test of Durability is the quality of the blade. The gap between real-world features and economy is bridged by the Rat Line. This knife is ideal for Edc because of its convenient and easy access. The handle is equipped with a comfortable grip. Jimping for a secure finger grip. The overall length is 12", the blade length is 7", and the handle length is 5".

Brand: Ontario Knife Company

👤I've taken this out a few times and I'm happy with it. I like this size of knife more than the dedicated bushcraft knives which are popular now. The size of the blade makes the axe unnecessary for splitting. I take it along with a Bahco saw and a small blade for food, and I feel like I cover a lot of bases with this set-up. The grind out of the box was okay. I reground it. There are a couple of things that I would change. The balance is a bit grip heavy and I'd like to see some cutouts in the tang to counter that. I don't like the powdercoat finish. I want my blades to be smooth. The coating is starting to show wear after some batoning and it's clear that it won't last indefinitely. It can't be used to get a spark. I may just remove the blade and coat it with a powdercoat. It would be great if OKC offered a version with a more durable finish. A good knife at a decent price.

👤I picked this blade up. The blade has been stripped and blackened. OKC uses tough stuff for its coating. I used a round file to make the jimping on the spine a little more aggressive, and also sharpened the spine to throw sparks with ferro rods. Sometimes I can't leave alone. There wasn't anything wrong with the knife right out the gate. It's a good spot for a medium sized knife. Can chop, but it's a bit more labor intensive. Smaller knife tasks are done well enough. Holds a decent edge. Can run. I've whooped on mine, but it doesn't care. The handle is quite comfortable. I can't say anything bad about it. It doesn't transfer a lot of shock. There were no big hot spots for me. The only downside is the sheath. You are not paying for the sheath. It's alright, but not great. If it bugs you, get a nice leather one or a kydex. Not buying two is my only regret with this knife. I'll probably fix that soon.

👤Over the years, I have purchased many OKC knives and have always been very happy with them. I saw this and the RTAK II on sale for $65 and decided to buy a few more. I wouldn't have expected any of the knives to have defects, but maybe the quality control has changed over the past few years. The RAT-7 had more fit and finish issues than the other knife I bought. When I scratched the powder coat off, I found a lot of rust underneath, which was a result of the black powder coat bubbling up in places. I was more concerned with the fact that the blade is slightly bent to one side. I would expect a knife with these issues to be labeled and sold as a factory second, not as a representation of their top quality production.

👤I never expected this knife to replace my Becker BK-7 as my favorite outdoors knife. I picked one up at Cabela's because I loved the simple elegance of the design and it came with an attractive walnut handle and leather sheath. I made a custom leather dangler sheath and replaced the original walnut handle scales with the OKC original scales. The knife is in its original form. In case something got missed in the description, the first thing to do is the specifications. The RAT-7 overall length is 12.25" and the blade is 0.19" thick. I had a chance to try out my custom leather dangler on an 11-day hiking trip through the Grand Circle in northern Arizona and southern Utah. The overall package was lighter and more compact than the factory sheath of the BK-7, and the blade itself has a slimmer design, so I decided to take the Becker BK-7, which was a knife I was familiar with already. The more woodsy look of the knife looked more in place with a group of hikers than it did with a fighting style knife. The weight difference was a factor when I was considering my loadout. I put this knife through a trial by fire because we didn't carry ax or hatchet. I was able to accomplish most of the tasks that came up with my small folding saw. I was with a Boy Scout troop and I used this knife to show them how to build a one-log fire. It came out winning in almost every area because of the abuse at the hands of the younger scouts and the heavy use I put on it. This knife was clean and well-equipped to build log walls for windbreaks, cut through cargo straps when one of ours broke, and fashioning hiking sticks out on the trail. The ergonomics and balance of the knife are some of the best I've ever used. It wields like a lighter blade because it's so balanced. The handle design is comfortable and large, which I like, with no discernable hot spots or uncomfortable countouring. The handle was still fantastic even with a somewhat blocky profile, and the Micarta provided an improved purchase on the knife over the walnuts scales. The blade held up well during hard use and processing firewood was very easy with this knife. The originals of the walnut scales had broken before, so I ordered the Micarta ones. The scales make this knife heavier and denser than the wooden ones. The wood scales are a downgrade even if they look better. The good are: excellent balance, great ergonomics, very tough steel and edge, excellent edge retention, excellent fit and finish, perfect size for a field knife, razor sharp out of the box, great handle, excellent slicer, and good chopper. The lanyard solved the issue of the knife being too large for some people, and I think it's a great knife. This design doesn't need Serrations. The knife feels good in the hand, balanced, quick, and ergonomics, despite the somewhat blocky handle scales. The palm swell on the handle is just right. This is an excellent survival knife, one which was originally designed to be a survival knife, not a tactical knife or a bushcraft knife. It has become one of my favorites along with the OKC Ranger Series. You cannot beat this knife for value. I bought a second one to keep in a go bag because it performs and feels like a knife in a much higher price category. Highly recommended.

Ontario Knife Company 8683 Survival

Their tools are made in the USA using the finest American steel. It was made in the United States. It was built for performance andDurability. The Kraton handle is carbon steel.

Brand: Ontario Knife Company

👤Wanted one of these. I finally got to tell you, I was without it for too long. It does everything. It chops it. It is on the heavy side but it is not noticeable in the sheath on your belt. It will cut a small tree in half. I have used it as a spatula and a tool for stirring the fire, but it has no give. It has a decent edge and takes very little work to make it better. I wouldn't replace my belt knife for it because it's a little bulky for more intricate jobs. Would recommend it to others.

👤This is a machete for trees and bushes. It can be used as an ax. My skinny hands and wrists are not strong enough to put this puppy to the test, but the more I use it, the stronger I get. I have that goin' for you.

👤I have been wanting a machete for a long time. I was able to get my hands on it. The blade finish and function is outstanding. It is a heavy chopping beast. I cut a 1” limb like butter. I tried my hand at making curls. This thing works. I grabbed a few rounds from the wood pile. I think they were either walnuts or Locust. Put the blade in the middle. Might have been using my axe. This cut through. The sheath is disappointing. The mole is on the back of the new version. The original version has an extra pocket on the front. I'm going to try and sell it as a option. This is going to be a great tool for around the house and for camping.

👤I've used an Ontario fixed blade knife for over 20 years and it has held up well. The machete is the same quality. It was very strong. It came fairly dull, that's my only gripe. If they were facing the other way, the saw teeth would be better used. The saw teeth on the back of the blade are so thick that it is hard to push away from you and still push hard enough to see anything. I bought it for its ability to pry/chopping, not as a saw. It's a good item for money.

👤He is mediocre. It is okay for the price. The center of the grind was the apex. On one side, the grind was higher. The blade was larger on one side. The quality control was terrible. The edge had to be reprofiled. The saw back isn't very good. I have seen better. I would only use it to make a basic notch. Use your money to buy other products that have better quality control. Save and buy a better brand. You can save money by buying a good hatchet. I wouldn't buy this again. I wouldn't give it away.

👤This thing is a beast and lives up to everything you say. It's not a big deal because OKC has started using nylon sheaths instead of the nice leather sheath they used to ship it with. It's still worth every penny.

Ka Bar BK23BP Becker Skeleton Knife

Great to be send, after-sale service packed in a black velvet pouch. They are engaged in providing the best shopping experience. The package is 0.25 inches in height. The package is 8 inches in length. The package is 3.75 inches in width.

Brand: Ka-bar

👤I live in Michigan. I have purchased many of these blanks. I have been making knives out of exotic wood that I found in a barn and have found that this blank works well for me. Others have been ok, but not as good as these. They are strong, thin, flat and have good dimensions for what I want to do. I have made diffrerent types of knives, but I have settled on the BKT-KABAR blanks, which are completely encased in wood and not showing metal. The tang is too small for a man's hand. The back lanyard hole needs to be grinded off to make room for more wood at the rear of the handle. It is going to be covered up and doesn't weaken the tang at all. It makes the tang thinner and more uniform. I make my handles from two pieces of exotic wood and they are 4.5 feet long, 1.125 high and.875 thick. That makes for a large handle that is just right for a small to medium hand. I make small inset for the holes in the knife. I put them in place with Super Glue and wipe the excess off with a small hammer. I used a razor blade I got at the Dollar Tree store to cut the wood into a flat piece. Unless you carefully mask the blade areas, don't use the belt sander or sandpaper. Sandpaper can damage the blade's powder coat. I glue the scales together with G-Flex after cutting off a few lengths. I thin the third piece that I made to.005 thicker than the blade handle using many crosscuts of a radial arm saw. I hand sand to the correct thickness. I used a bandsaw to cut out the shape of the handle. The cutout and G-Flex have handles. After drilling the holes for the pins and masking the wood with plastic painter's tape, it was all together. It will be very hard to remove regular masking tape from the G-Flex. I use a belt sander to finish shaping and finishing. I cover the blade portion with a thin strip of aluminum weather stripping to keep it from touching the sander. It will remove the powder coat and leave a bright spot on the metal where it touched. I had to learn this the hard way. I make the handles thicker for a big guy and thinner for a woman. The handle for the index finger is shaped according to whether the person is right or left handed. That makes it special for that person. Look at photos. I use a mixture of Clear Gloss Polyurethane and other chemicals to finish the piece. The thick coat is applied first to seal the wood so it doesn't bubble. It took me a while to figure it out. Depending on how much bubbling has occurred, I sand lightly with 220 to 600 sandpaper between coats. It takes a long time to get the coats to dry and getting the finish right is the hardest part. It is best to sleep in a dry place. That is about 8 hours. Longer is better than shorter. If it is tacky, don't paint until it is dry and sanded. You won't save time that way. After all the excess has run off, I allow it to dripping off with the blade down, handle UP. Wrap a piece of tightly rolled up paper towel around the paint so it doesn't get on the floor. If you let it dry with the handle down, a thick drop of paint will form on the bottom of the handle and it may not be smooth there. These blades are easy to resharpen on a stone. The black powder coat is not easy to remove. I have used one for six months and have not lost a coat. I don't think they should be used unchanged. They are not comfortable to carry without scales. I use the ones I make for people who give me favors. Women seem to appreciate them more than men. A woman with a KABAR in her purse. I recommend these blanks for beginners. I accidentally discovered that these blades are not real and are attracted by a magnet. I decided to build a boat with a maple and cork handle and two powerful rare earth magnets that are tucked into the wood and padded with a piece of cloth so that the blade is not in contact with the magnets. JAF.

👤I've ordered 4 knives from S&W in the last 3 months. I was ecstatic when I saw the blade, but I had to attach it to my belt as a drop leg accessory. After curing the button, I decided to let it slide as every thing else was sound, so I used E6000 and it worked. I got this on April 9th. The nylon belt loop was worn around my property and was not taken out in the field. The button that was repaired has detached and one piece is missing, so it is useless in the way in which I bought it. This was the most expensive item purchased by S&W. I expected better quality from them. I'm returning the blade and buying another one.

👤I like the knife, but I didn't like how it came. The package was torn in several places and then returned. The guard for the tip was missing so I was not happy about receiving a brand new knife, but it seems like a good quality knife, but time will tell.

👤It works and looks like it should.

👤The knife has a good feel and weight. At the end, it comes sharp.

👤This is a good deal for the price. Well made with good materials. Quality doesn't always have to be expensive. This little guy is excellent at camp, hunting, and over all woodsman knives. It's great for use around camp. Good quality high carbon steel is a pros. I think it is a 1095. Which is a popular and well received steel, and is wonderful if heat treated proper which these knives are. A sharp edge is retained. I used it to carve a walking stick and a few other items. Still had a sharp edge. The edge is still very usable. Excellent price. You can easily buy knives of similar quality. These are great if you are on a budget or looking for an excellent knife to give as a present. It will rust if you don't oil it and maintain it. If you want to be serious about bushcraft and survival knives, you need to get used to the fact that most carbon steels are not able to do the job. The steel doesn't go through the whole handle, but a good portion of the way there. Light bushcraft is why I say that. I wouldn't do any heavy batoning with this. The part that leads up to the belt clip will get bent and warped over time. This isn't that big of a deal since it works just fine. It is not as nice as it was. I love this knife. It's an excellent addition to my collection.

👤I've seen people talk about how it rusted after they left it in the shed. The people have never had carbon steel blades which are top quality steel. After every use, you should put a coat of oil on these. Before buying carbon steel knives, you should research how to care for them. There are a lot of videos on this. I don't buy carbon steel knives because I like the sharp blades that hold an edge. If you are going to use one to process food, then you will want a steel blade. The knife came out of the box and it was an unbeatable price. Great knife! Great price! A good sheath to go with it. I will be buying more.
