The carrying options of the Lanyard Hole Porvides Mulitple. The overall length with a blade length of 4.9 inches and a weight of 6.3 ounces is 24.6% larger. It isdurable: The blade is made of reliable 8Cr13MoV. The high carbon S.S. has a black handle. It's permissible. It is ideal for carrying while working because of its quick and easy access. The blade will not slip with the security of the finger guard. A lanyard hole and a full tang design make the knife very dangerous.
👤When Imperial Schrade went out of business, it sold its name to Taylor Brands, which sells knives under many different brand names. The Schrade name was besmirched by having its name put on substandard knives. The knife industry has been growing for about a decade now and many of the "crap knife" brands are putting out good products. This has happened with MTech, as I've noted in recent reviews, though a lot of junk has MTech stamped on it. It's impressive that this is my first Schrade in a long time. It is one of the best knives I have. Let's get into the specifications first. The overall length of the blade is 10 and it has a blade thickness of 5/32. Teflon blade steel is 8Cr13MoV. The construction is made of steel. The knife is well designed and constructed, and the handle scales are rubbery plastic. The blade shape is very nice and has a combination of drop and clip points. I was very impressed with the sharpness of the first image. This is one of the few "budget" knives I've bought recently and it was up to the standards of Cold Steel and Kershaw. Being almost as sharp as those manufacturers' blades is a compliment. To be just as sharp is more than you can ask for. For about two years, I worked in a shop in downtown Portland that sold knives, not because I needed the money, but because it gave me access to a variety of the kind of knives I was collecting. I was warned by the manager to be extra careful handling the folding knives because they were the cause of most of the cuts employees had experienced, and one day I cut myself on one despite being warned. The knife passed both the paper test and the thumbnail test, but did the blade catch on my thumbnail enough to keep me from sliding it? My Talwar is dangerously sharp and it sliced paper as easily as it could. I mean that a small mistake closing the Talwar could easily take off a finger. The handle is very comfortable and between the deep forefinger cutout and the thumb jimping your hand is well- protected from sliding forward onto the blade if the knife meet a solid object while thrusting. The lanyard hole is nice. Many people who use knives in military or emergency situations want lanyards, but I don't use them. The type of sheath is secure-ex. I assume it's proprietary to Schrade because I see no trademarking on it. I'll assume it's plastic. The plastic belt loop can hold a belt that's 1-3/4" wide. The thigh straps have a slit. The sheath is pretty good, though I'll talk about it in the cons section. For the few cons. If you have large hands, this knife is not for you. I have small hands for a man and it's the right size for me. A man with big hands will use his finger to hold it. This could be an additional safety factor in addition to the cutout and jimping. The sheath is one of the major con's. The sheath is very tight. It takes a good hard pull to get the knife out, and I can imagine an accident happening if you do that with a sharp blade. I'm pretty sure that if you applied a small file and worked carefully, you could reduce the grip of the sheath, though of course you'd have to be careful not to make it too loose. You don't want this knife to fall out of its sheath. There is almost no way to withdraw the blade silently if you are a spec ops soldier. A loud snapping sound can be heard when you return the blade to the sheath. I would make a more practical sheath of cordura or leather with a snap or Velcro strap if I were a spec ops guy. If you're looking for a knife that's not too big and not too small, and you don't want to spend more than $25, this is a good option. In the photos, I show the knife with two other serious combat/self-defense knives so you can see how it compares in size. Below it in the 3-knife shot is the monstrous MTech MT 20-39.
Fans claim that the first edition of Blade slices through plastic, aluminum, seaweed, rope, and fiberglass. The overall length is 21.59 cm and the blade length is 8.25 cm. It isdurable: The blade is made of reliable 8Cr13MoV. A black nylon handle is on the Stonewashed High Carbon Stainless Steel. It's permissible. The nylon fiber neck sheath and chain are easy to access. The blade will not slip with the security of the finger choil and pinky hole. It is comparable. Multiple holes give users Cary options.
👤This is a good product. I'm leery of products that have a prestigious brand name. The Smith and Wesson name and logo were used by these guys. It is a low cost blade. A bushcraft knife is not a skinning knife. The "star" question about comfort is very base. It is said that a handgun on one's person should be "comforting" and not necessarily "comfortable". As a neck knife, you won't be able to use it to slice a carotid artery or puncture a lung or heart. The primary purpose of this knife is to disembowel someone. I won't use it to cut cardboard because it destroys my stropped edge. I stropped the knife to razor sharp after it came from the box. I will order another and dull the edge for deployment practice as I've lightly sliced myself in practice several times. The curved top makes the pijnt needle sharp as well. I may shorten the blade to avoid confusion with a cop as to the exact length of the blade, as there is a lot if "non-sharp" length that a cop might interpret as "blade length"! This was a close call as I could find in a modest price range with a Karambit retention ring and a useful blade design, but a little too long to pass muster with squad car cops in Hawaii. What is that? Twice in the last two months, I've been in danger of attack by a street person or low life, because I'm in a wheelchair and waiting for ParaTransit. I was ready and didn't project alarm or fear, so each time they changed their mind, I was ready. The world will be a nicer place without anyone that will attack or rob an elderly or disabled person in a wheelchair. I am very confident in this knife.
👤The knife is made from high quality materials. I bought it because it had a reversed curve and a straighter blade. I wanted something that I could use to grab someone's wrist, but that could also be used to stab them. I researched the type of steel and found it to be a recommended steel in many blade forums. I hope I never use this knife. I wanted something strong. I used a 4.5" grinder and a sanding disk to make sure the blade didn't get hot. I used a Lansky knife sharpening system to put a razor's edge on the back. I like it. A lot. I put four stars because I had to put the top edge on it. A real carambit would have had an advantage.
👤The knife is fine. Nothing to write about. One very important detail for all of you that have never dealt with Kydex holsters and the way they are made. Retention is used by them. The ability to adjust retention. This is how you will sheath the knife. It is what keeps a knife from bouncing out of its holster. Don't try to force the knife out of the sheath when you get your knife. One of the reviewers will end up at the ER. Do you see the screws that attach the belt clip to the holster? The screws need to be loosened to adjust the retention. There should be a big red warning label around the knife and holster to make sure others don't cut themselves. Unless you are a concealed carry individual, you don't know the retention needs to be set to unlocked the knife from the holster.

SOG fixed blade knives with sheath are built to last and they will take care of you if you need it. The Seal Pup has nylon sheath.
👤SOG traded quality and integrity for cheap Chinese manufacturing. I used to be a big fan of SOG product, but not anymore. The #1 knife that you see on the picture is a Japanese design called the Seal PUP. I used to have that knife for a long time and it served me well for several years. It was very functional despite sustaining a lot of abuse. There were no issues with that one. If you decide to order one now, you will receive a Chinese replica that is not close to the original design. SOG sells cheap Chinese duplicate while customers put a picture of original made in Japan design in the description. If you scroll down, you will receive the knife. Be aware of what you are buying. Don't waste your money, is my personal advice as an OIF veteran and infantry NCO. People who wrote positive reviews have nothing to compare with. You will be disappointed if you know about knives. I'm done with SOG. I'll get a strong-arm knife instead of a knife next time. The quality is not the same. I got a new SOG in the mail and attached pictures of my old one. Look for yourself.
👤This knife is a great survival knife for the price. You'd be hard pressed to find a seal pup for less. The product images are not the same as the product you will get. This knife is not made in Japan or Taiwan anymore, but it is Chinese made. My other one is made in Taiwan and it seems like it's as good as this one. It could be sharpened for a razors edge. The SHEATH is my biggest problem. I don't know who changed the design, but I'm not worried. You will not get the same Sheth as in the photos. The snaps are plastic, and they are no longer metal. If it didn't take two hands to open and close the snaps, that would be great. If you can't get the knife out of the sheath with only one hand, that's useless. They are hard to resnap. After opening and closing them a few times, I noticed that the nylon under the snap was starting to degrade. The Chinese version of the sheaths pocket flap is smaller than the American version. The old sheath was about 1/2 inch wider. If you want a sheath that you can rely on, spend the extra $5 - $6 elsewhere.
👤The review was lowered from five to three stars after 16 months because the sheath it comes with is just plain awful. The sheath is bulky and the retention snap is difficult to open or close. When you can find it in stock, the KYD-M40 Kydex sheath is about $22 to $30. The combination is cheaper with the better sheath. The even better Strongarm, which also comes with a great Kydex sheath, is an even better knife and bargain. The knife was almost given to me by Amazon, but I'd rather pay full retail. It's good.
The Kraton handle is carbon steel. A heavy duty field knife is suited for camping chores. It was made in Olean New York. It was designed by Ethan Becker. KA-BAR Knives Inc. is a manufacturer of KA-BAR Knives. Comes with a black nylon sheath.
👤If you're reading this, you've probably read all the reviews, so I'll stick to my opinion. There is no such thing as the ultimate survival knife. If you need to split wood, buy an axe. If you only need to skin game, carve wooden tools, build traps, slice veggies for camp dinner, buy a smaller, more maneuverable knife. If you need to escape a falling building after an earthquake or other disaster, you should carry a wrecking/pry bar. If you can't carry all of those tools around all the time, the Ka-Bar BK2 is a good choice. The blade steel is of working class and facilitates a variety of uses. I was looking for a long knife. The get home bag is for the event. The idea was to have a knife that could be used for a variety of urban and rural survival tasks. This knife is great for bush crafting. Some reviewers in survivalist forums complained that the length of the blade limited one to batoning smaller logs during shelter building, I don't know what kind of shelters they are building that would require one to process logs thicker than 5in. If you have the time and energy to build yourself a log cabin, then you probably also have a chainsaw and a pet. The BK2 is great because it is good for many things, but not great at one thing. If you have to read that again, its a fantastic buy for those who are limited to carrying one relatively small knife, in a get home bag, but are not too concerned about the added weight. If you are planning on being in a given situation and your resources enable you, you should get a knife that is designed for that purpose. This is a great knife. Is it good for you?
👤I believe the majority of positive reviews on this item are by people who don't use knives often. This knife has a number of things wrong with it. The box was emptied. It gets through butter. 2. The ferro rod cannot be sparked with the spine because of the thick black coating. 3. The manufacturer has poor bladesmanship. There are dents and flaws in the steel. 4. If you want to work with this knife and sweat, the scales are useless. They are slick. 5. The sheath is made of imported garbage. I spent a lot of money to get this knife in working order. I did 1. Scales were replaced. 2. The thick coating was removed. 3. A sharp 90 on the spine is ground. 4. Put a sharp edge on the blade. 5. The surface was forced to have a patina. 6. The nylon belt loop was replaced. If you need a working knife right out of the box, spend a little more money and get a better brand.
👤I bought this knife a long time ago. Let me tell you a story. I hated cheap items that broke in the army. After the army, I set out to find things that were strong. The best items for the job. I can't tell you how many knives I destroyed. I tried to destroy this knife. I don't mean batoning logs with a heavy hand. I mean jamming it into the crack of a rock face to haul my butt over a ledge. 250 lbs of me. I put this thing in the bottom of my kayak to see how it trusts. No. I've thrown it at trees and cars. I have chopped fence wire with a knife. I dug holes in the gravel for the toilets. I hated this knife for 2 years. I am in love with it. I have the most reliable thing in my life. I put a nice micarta handle on it after engraving it. I ordered one for my wife and one for our boy so he could have one like his dad. You will not regret getting this knife.
Be aware of the knife's seatbelt and glassbreaker. A blade length of 2.6 inches and a weight of 4 ounces are included in the dimensions. It isdurable: 65Mn High Carbon S.S. is used in the blade. It's permissible. It's ideal for everyday carry because of the convenient black, multi-carry option thermoplastic belt sheath. Securing the blade with the thumb rest will ensure it won't slip. A lanyard hole and a full tang design make the knife very dangerous.
👤This knife is very sharp. The blade is sharp. I find that the knife is almost useless as a cutting tool, as it is dull and easy to misplace. A knife is always useful. I have had this knife for 4 months and have not taken it off my belt. I found the mount to be inferior. It was not avoided after a screw was lost in under a month. The belt mount I made using the 550 cord had worked perfectly. I'll include some pictures but keep in mind I've used it daily since I got it and it's a bit worn already. I will continue to wear this knife. I'm a soldier. The knife is very useful. It was better to have a few serrations at the bottom. I added them with a file. The two serrations make up for the fact that it lost its edge so quickly. This knife is great for someone who doesn't need flashy or brilliantly clever knives. It's a metal knife. It works well for most tasks. I love this knife and the fact that it was so heap compared to a few soldiers that carry around knives worth 80 to 250 dollars is something that makes me happy. This is a great choice.
👤I'll take any Mora. I will reprofile the blade if I need to. It's cheap to do that. The sheath is the only positive thing about this knife. A state that I recently vacationed to requires a knife blade of less than 3 inches. The tip can drag on the ground if you want, my home state does not impute evil. I used this knife for 5 weeks and I'm not impressed. It rusts if you pull it out of the sheath. If you use the edge, it leaves a trail. I could spend more time cleaning and honing this knife. Wait a second, I did. I carry scout style and the leather sheath of the knife I am comparing doesn't permit scout style without building my own sheath. The Schrade Old Timer Small Pro Hunter is what that knife is. It's $7 more, but worth it. I didn't expect much from 7Cr17Mov, but when I batoned three, foot long chunks of spruce into about 5 pieces each, I was pleasantly surprised. I found that the knife I had only sharpened once, when I got it 2 months before, could still pushcut the paper with it's 25 degree edge. Someone treated that steel well. Schrade would have a knife if they offered a plastic sheath with the OT capable of scout style carry. I'm familiar with the Ontario Rat-1, the Real Steel Bushcrafter 2 and the Byrd Cara Cara. The OT and SCHF57 are more expensive than the Byrd. The lack of quality of 65Mn makes me glad I didn't buy a knife from the camp. I will stick to 1075, which will give me less trouble. The SCHF57 is a nice idea, but it doesn't match up as a useful knife. If you kept the sheath, you would have something. I stripped the coating off to try and rust proof the edge and then added apple cider vinegar to make it look better. I didn't remove the heat treat. The Patina wiped off along with the edge. I can't find a use for this knife other than as a paper weight to keep a paper plate from blowing off a table.
The overall length is 12", the blade length is 7", and the handle length is 5". The winner of the 2016 award was based on quality, innovation, design, and practicality. The Sandvik 12C 27 blade is a high strength, tough and resistant to rust. The built-in click lock between the sheath and handle ensures the knife stays in place when worn around the neck. A square-edged ground spine blade is made in Sweden. The total length is 5. 6 inches (143 cm) blade length 2 inches (56mm) blade thickness 0 8oz; one year.
👤I watched a video by Tengan65 where he explained 10 things this knife can do and 2 things it can't. If you're on the fence about making the purchase, I encourage you to watch the video. He has a list and I think I've been using this knife for a while. It's great for making feather sticks. For the same reason, #2 is very good. Excellent for starting a ferro rod. Really good! It's pretty good at cutting rope. Good for cutting and slicing. Excellent for opening boxes. There is a fair for food prep. Excellent for Notching wood. It's pretty good for carving. It's a good idea to make a hole in softer wood. It is not good for chopping anything and batoning. You should assess your needs and go from there. I give this knife a rating of excellent and I think it's a great knife to carry as a secondary in the woods or as a primary for simple EDC. There was a revision on 3/21/18. I have to admit that this little knife has been used at home for opening packages. I don't use it. I think that any other option from Mora would be a better choice. The Mora 511 is a better choice for most of us. I don't need this review, I still stand by it.
👤I feel like my review comes from the knife, which is amature, sharing why a knife like this is functional for backpacking. The knife is great to take backpacking because of its many characteristics. The knife is capable of a lot, and that makes it one of my favorite knives. The short blade is easy to use and allows for precise work. The palm swells make it really comfortable, and the handle is large. I like the fact that I can get my hand up to the blade, allowing for more delicate work with the knife. The 90 degree spine has been complained about by others. Push cuts on bare skin have not been an issue for me. The 90 degree spine allows you to strike a ferro rod with it and make the knife part of a fire kit. I am happy with the knife. It's perfect for backpacking.
👤If you are looking for a knife that will inspire confidence while you hold it, this is the one for you. The grip is firm. The blade is strong. The spine is made of fire steel. The Eldris is an amazing value at a very low price. You can see how I converted the basic blade to a neck knife in the photo. I used a split ring and reflective tent cordage. I like this set up better than the Mora solution, and I hope a redesign of the scabbard will eliminate the need for a split ring.
👤I'm a big fan of Mora. Picked this one up because I can't justify the regular price as compared to the other Moras. I don't know why it costs twice as much. It's a good knife. The quality is better than all Moras. The design just doesn't make sense to me. It's too short for general use. I'm not sure of the point of it, since it's a blade for very fine use. It could be used like a regular utility razor blade knife. The retractable utility knife is the perfect tool for what it is used for, so I'm not sure why you would use it. I think the knife is trying to be, but for the price, it's not worth it. A standard utility knife is cheaper and never needs sharpening. A replaceable blade costs just a couple cents. In a sentence. I'm not sure what it's for, the quality is great, but I'm not sure what it's for. If you need a deep knife. Yes. It's good. Get the companion or my favorite craft line. And you will be happy.
The Spec Plus Sp2 Air Force Survival Knife is an excellent tactical knife. It is ideal for general field use. And camp staff. The Kukri blade style provides powerful cutting. Carbon steel is strong and durable. The injection molded handle is comfortable and secure. Ryan Johnson is the designer of the product. The company has a limited lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials. The company has a limited lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials.
👤I've had this for a few years in my camping kit, but never used it. The knife broke in half when I went to chop a 1/2 inch vine in the back yard. The cross section is two different colors and it looks like something is wrong with the metal.
👤A few weeks ago, I bought this kukri to polish off branches that were too small or unimportant for a chainsaw. The rubber handle is very nice, and I've used it a few times now. Even with gloves, it provides a great grip. It's very good at absorbing vibration, which is something I haven't been able to do with previous machetes. The blade held its edge well. It is very stout, and I chose it partly for that reason. I wanted a blade that wouldn't bend on me. The black coating on the blade is starting to rub off where I've done most of the chopping. If this is the worst that happens, I'm happy. I've seen other blades break in half, and I've seen chipping, bending, and sometimes breaking in half. The belt attachment area could use some work. It almost seems like they weren't trying to make a belt loop, but you can still loop a belt through it. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. It still suits me. * It's not easy to draw and sheath one-hand, but it is doable after some practice. It was well worth it, even though I paid a little more than I wanted to. For moderate usage. Would purchase again.
👤I already own 2 machetes, but I wanted to try a Kukri. I wanted a heavy duty Kukri from Condor. With 2 in college and no real need for a heavier chopper, I got the lighter, value oriented crkt kuk. The comfortable handle on the crkt halfachance is what makes me choose the crkt kuk. I was okay with paying more for a better handle because a cold steel machete costs less. I have only used it twice to chop up branches in the yard to put in the green waste bin. I am not an outdoor person. It is light, compact and comfortable to use on small branches. It is a mini machete. I use an electric chainsaw for the larger branches. When compared to a plain machete, it looks pretty unique. Even if I lost it, I would still buy another one because I already have two fine machetes. I will ask my family to get me a Condor for my birthday.
👤It's well made for what it is, and it's large compared to most knives. For a khukuri? The blade is not that large. I know it's made from a more expensive steel than Gurkha knifemakers typically use, and all that, but when you swing a khukuri you're swinging something that's got a lot in common to swinging a hatchet, in terms of weight and center of balance. The weight is crucial to making the khukuri fearsome and effective. The KUK feels more like a machete than a machete. It doesn't have the khukuri heft and balance that it does. I was expecting more than I got, but I'm sure this lightness makes it easier to use for long periods of time, but for a large CRKT knife with a well known designer. The build tolerances on this thing might be better than they are in a Nepali smithy, but set it next to an equivalently priced khukuri and you'll find yourself reaching for the latter.
If you take care of your axes and hatchets, they will take care of you, and they will consider repairs and replacements for your properly maintained SOG tomahawk throwing hatchets. DIMENSIONS The overall length of the Hatchet is 28.1 cm and it has a blade length of 3.6 inches (9 cm). It isdurable: The 3Cr13 S.S. blades have black rubber handles. It's permissible. The individual, black belt sheaths are convenient and easy to use. The security of the finger grooves on the hatchet and the front quillon on the machete will help keep the blade from slipping. The machete and Hatchet have lanyard holes for added security.
👤I am a carribean. I bought this set after IRMA. I had to cut a branch when DORIAN hit. It's time to try this tool. After the first couple hits, I was impressed by the sharpness of the blade, but after a number of theses, I ended up with a rubber handle in my hand and the axe flying away. I'm very lucky that I didn't kill anyone. It is not made to be used. I ended the story with my machete, because Rivets and wood don't fail.
👤Don't buy this set. The tools I bought were for a backpacking trip. The first time I used the knife to chop a bush it snapped in half. The sheath is also damaged. Absolutely terrible quality equipment and cheap material. I would be dead if this knife was in my life.
👤I kept the "mini machete" for myself, even though I bought this set to gift the hatchet to a friend. More on that later. I have used one of these hatchets for a couple of years now and have not had a single complaint. This is a good tool that does what it was made to do, such as chopping, splitting, and other light camp chores. The rubber coated metal handle is all in one construction and you don't have to worry about breaking it. I cringe when I see young people on those videos splitting wood with their belt knives by beating on it with a chunk of wood. Why do they risk damaging or breaking their knives if they only have a fixed blade with them? Do they carry a stone to touch up the edge after abuse? One of these little hatchets weighs next to nothing and can be tucked into a side pouch with a folding saw and you can process all of the wood you need without endangering your knife. If you have a stone with you, you can skin game with one. .... The reason I removed a star from the review was because it was a butchers knife with a fancy rubber handle. This knife is not good for use as a machete. I can't think of a fancy name for the different grinds, but this blade has a hollow grind that is more often found on a knife's cutting edge. If they wanted to keep the blade from chipping, they should have left more metal down to the edge and had a round grind like the hatchet. The blade is only 1/6 of an inch in thickness. You want a bent and twisted blade over time, but you're not sure how to get it. Thebelly of the knife's blade will slide over the sheath if it is not fastened right. You will have a hole in your sheath if you have a good edge on the blade. This is a good little set if you want a hatchet for 20 bucks and a knife for 8. There is a If you want a knife for "batoning wood", this one is cheap and won't bother you when you ruin it. Knock yourself out. I am going to take the black gunk off the blade, heat it up, and then dunk it in oil to get it ready for the next use. I'll put a plastic sleeved rivet on the blade of the knife and use it like I would a kitchen butcher knife. To cut meat and veggies.
The knife has a full tang design and a dual edge blade. The overall length is 30.4 cm and the blade length is 6.4 cm. It isdurable: The blade is made of reliable 8Cr13MoV. A grey, micarta handle is made of high carbon steel. It's permissible. The convenient sheath makes it an ideal choice for an emergency. The blade will not slip with the security of the finger choil, finger grooves and jimping. The knife has a lanyard hole.
👤Update 2 (pic 2) Schrade backs up their products. They replaced the knife that was past Amazon's warranty. * The handle's Mycarta grip is trimmed and finished in a different way than the grips of my previous knives. The blade has a straight spine. I love the features of this model: its look, weight, grip, and performance. If not regularly oiled and maintained, this steel alloy will form rust spots if not kept clean. * The cordura nylon sheath is functional, but not as durable as the ballistic nylon. The belt loop is thicker and more durable than the thin nylon fabric over the plastic blade insert. The sheath is sewn together using single-stitch seams and reinforced with 4 cordage grommets. on each side. It also has 6 feet of thin black cordage. The weave on my sheath began to break apart after 6 months, but I plan to upgrade with an aftermarket nylon sheath. Schrade Customer Service agreed that it was likely a heat treatment issue, which they stated was rare. They said they would ship a free replacement. I bumped up my rating because of their quick and courteous Customer Service. I'll raise my rating again once I receive the replacement. I just returned from camping for 2 weeks, mostly off grid. I used this knife as my primary camp knife, splitting 4 wide logs for firewood everyday for 5 days until it broke, and batoning for more firewood, but the metal cracked in half close to the handle, while I was batoning for more firewood. The back half of the knife was stuck in the log. I used a short log for the baton. I've only used the knife a few times at home and for camping, but it's been great. There were no issues with its performance until this incident. This outcome was disappointing. It was terrible not to have a backup knife. I still had my axe. I suspect that the heat treatment process was too fast and that my order was a bad one.
👤I've had this knife on my wish list for a long time, but I couldn't bring myself to buy it. I think it's a picture on Amazon. The knife appears to be smaller than it is. I read a lot of reviews on Amazon and decided to see what it was like for myself. Others have said that this knife is large. The thickness of the blade and handle are not shown in the photograph. The blade is not very thick. The handle is 1 3/16" thick in the center and just forward of the index finger grove and just behind the small finger grooves. It is heavy for a knife. It's a little over 15 ounces. on my scale. The slight recurve of the blade could be missed in the photograph. It's not bad, but using a flat sharpener like a stone is a challenge. This knife is shown in a video on the Amazon listing. It will take a lot of punishment and will keep on cutting and chopping. This knife is heavy duty and can handle any situation outdoors. The back of the handle slabs should have been where they were installed. There is a slight discrepancy between the finger grooves and the bottom of the tang. The knife is not uncomfortable because it is not significant enough. It has a less than perfect appearance. This price range has a standard issue with the sheath.

👤Extra protection is what this knife is for. It was almost chopped through the box fold when I tested it. I don't want to be the one who gets the knife. Would buy again. I used the Bowie to chop down the branch that was as thick as the blade's width. It took me about 3 minutes to cut the branch. The black coating on the edge of the serrations has worn out and I have used the serrated part of the blade. The knife has a sharp edge. I think this knife is a self-defense tool first and then a tool last. I would see the knife in the glove box or backpack. If I were traveling out of town, I would only use it as a secondary EDC. I would buy it again, and I would hate for anyone to be on the receiving end of this knife.
👤I saw this knife at the academy for 20 bucks and then on Amazon for 13 and thought I would give it a try. It is not full. It sounds like something is loose if you knock on the handle. It is an 13 dollar knife that I can put in my tractor toolbox and not worry about, it is not a high end knife. Buy with that in mind.
👤When first ordered, the knife arrived earlier than expected. The knife is the same as pictured. The knife is sharp. It is nice. I like to snap to secure my knife. The blade is well-fitting. Only giving 4 stars because the saw is not sharp and only leaves a small dent in wood and does not see past the saw teeth. I was very disappointed in that. I like the knife. It does not slip out of hand.
👤A 100% strong sturdy knife will buy again and have others purchase as well, if you're not careful.
👤The materiales are excelentes.
👤Well designed. The knife was very good.
👤It's just got a cool look, and it's exceeded expectations, especially at this price.

👤It is listed as a double-edge knife, but it is actually a single-edge knife. I would never buy a single-edge dagger because it makes sense to buy a two wheel car. This thing has a thin blade and it comes at a serious cost. The sheath is more valuable than the dagger, but you could wear it off the paracord around your neck and not feel it. If you have to defend yourself, be sure to hit the gut and not the bone. I think most bone is harder. It wasn't worth my time to come back. I copied the original listing in case they tried to deny it was double edge. Beware! As much as this false advertising goes on here in AMAZON, you have to think that they draw interest on your money, even if you don't want a refund.
👤This is a toy and not a real knife. A spear point knife and push dagger are throwing weapons. Even if you hit it dead on, the knife will bend even if you throw it at a soft target. Not very useful.

You can sharpen the other edge yourself.
👤The knife appears to be better quality. It is a great knife for the price where it is not used on a daily basis. The steel is strong. I don't need to sharpen it on four air bags. The second knife is a five star with price factored in and four stars due to having to get a replacement. I would recommend this product. I noticed the blade had a small crack at the base when I unboxed it. I have to remember that this is a very inexpensive blade and that makes me question the integrity of the replacement. The knife feels good in the hand, the case is nice for the price, and it fits the knife snug, but not too snug.
👤They need to change the description of the knife because it isn't a double edge blade. It's not a bad knife, it locks into the sheath pretty well.
👤I would have been a 5 stars except for the fact that I was looking for something different. The sharp edge is double sided. The edges of the knife are not sharp.
👤One side is blunt and the other is sharp. If pressure was applied, the blade would snap, not worth the 25 bucks. It will be kept for cosplay only.
👤The tip of the knife was broken by the soft flooring. I bought an S&W SWHRT9B and it was worse. I bought some throwing knives from S&W and the tip broke off, which is not very hard at all. S&W's knives, at least from Amazon, are trash.
👤This is not a double edge blade. It is a false edge. I returned the one I ordered.
