👤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.
Children under 16 years old should not play with or use the blade. Damascus steel tracker knife is handmade. The handle with the Muzik Pin is beautiful. Don't miss out on the special promotional price. Leather sheath included. New stock. Only the official "Pohsland-Knives Official" reserve rights to sell authentic knives on Amazon.
👤Poor quality. I took this knife with me on a camping trip. The knife broke in half on the 3rd hit with the back of my small hatchet, while I was using it to split wood for fire. Always carry a back up. I have owned my Buck 119 for 23 years and will never let it go.
👤The 'Tracker Knife' was invented by Tom Brown Jr. and this is a cheap imitation. The curved knife 'belly' should transition from a flat blade to a smooth line. The blade does not. Bushcrafters will appreciate the wood notchers at the top of the blade. My specimen was very soft across the edge, it was hardened in a few places. Across the edge, a cheap file easily bites into the steel, questioning its temper and steel quality. Another variable aspect is sheath. The leather quality ranged from very good to super thin. Two stars out of five for the sheath due to too much leather thickness variation and a plastic foam spacer, which is questionable quality, but still one of the best knives you can buy for an inexpensive price. I would get the legit version if I were cheap. There is a damascus looks very cool on the 'Pro' side. The handle is strong. Damascus looks very good, I will probably temper it. The original would have saved me a lot of trouble.
👤The knife was in the mail. I opened the box and found a knife in a plastic bag with oil on it. It took a few minutes to dry it off. There are some rust spots on the blade.
👤This thing is gorgeous. You can feel the steel on this thing. You should research how to care for Damascus Steel. This will not see a dishwasher or stay wet for more than a few seconds. You must keep the blade clean. DS is prone to rusting and will hold a good edge. Great grand kids will inherit this thing if you take care of it. The knife is a work of art. The sheath is only Meh.
👤Cut the sheath so you can grip it. The retainer strap should be changed. I walked 10 feet to my table, but I did it with a 12in Bowie. The sheath sucks. It works great on the belly or left side cross draw. The handle was very heavy. I had to use Dremel pins to stop the cuts. The handle is long and skinny. A palm swell is needed. Week def needs a coffee and acid etch. I don't see any cracks or chips. The Damascus is made from bar stock and cut to a blade. This was my first buy and it was of the highest quality. It's a good buy and if you don't like a flaw, remember the blade made in America is around 300$ hand forged or more. If it breaks, return it. Damascus is welding two types of steel together, so it can be re-welded, so it can go wrong. If you get a delam or a crack, be positive and make them better, because Amazon will replace them. It's still a good blade even though it's either drop forged or hand cut.
The adjustment for reading is done with optical equipment. The overall size is 13 when sheathed with a half serrated blade and a rubber handle. The Fire Starter and Sharping Rod can be put in place at a moment's notice. This knife is built to last, perfect for any hunter, camper, survivalist or outdoor sports enthusiast with a compass built in sheath.
The overall length with a blade length of 6 inches and a weight of 7.4 ounces is 26.7 cm. The blade is made of 7Cr17MoV High Carbon, Black Oxide Stainless Steel with a black, deep, rubber wrapped aluminum handle. It's permissible. The convenient ballistic sheath has a storage pouch and a sharpening steel. Have faith that the hand guard will keep the blade from slipping.
👤I'm not a knife. I really like this one. It has a good grip and is very sharp. It should work well for killing zombies. A belt holster that comes with it. I keep this under the front seat of my car in case of an apocalypse, I got this for my bug out bag.
👤This knife was very good. I had to split some wood while camping with it. I did not have an axe. I used my knife and hammer to split the wood. I expected the knife to be dull and chip. I was overjoyed to find out that it held its edge, but it almost seemed to get sharper. The knife held up great despite some paint rubbing off.
👤This is a good knife to use. It is light weight and sturdy, made of good quality materials, and feels good in the hand. The 5.8" black blade is called a "clip point" and has a straight, sharp blade that extends 2 1/2 in. Behind the point. The blade is 1/8" thick and has a slight downward curve. The edge has a slight bend. The rubber cover on the grip material provides a good grip. The blade has a full tang, but behind the cross guard it narrows to about one third the width of the blade and is pinned with an aluminum pin. I like a cross guard and this knife has one that extends above the grip and below the grip. A cross guard protects your hand from sliding forward on the blade, as well as anything out front of the cross guard. This blade is good for cutting small branches and cordage. I don't think it would survive the use of a baton to cut wood or as a pry bar. I would expect a knife made for that purpose to survive use as a pry bar. A rescue knife can be used to break glass or plastic. A tool which is 1/3 in. The aluminum pommel may not be large enough to hold a hammer. This knife is a great choice for camping. It's hard to beat the price and it's just the right size and weight. This knife would be a disappointment for missions or extreme conditions. The sheath is small. The knife is shorter than the longer one. . It has a few useful features that are not found with a knife this price. The belt loop has a design secured with velcro. The fold over allows the sheath to be placed around the belt without having to detach and feed it. It has a strap that can be adjusted with a snap. It is lined with a plastic liner to keep it out of harms way. The tip has a cord that can be used to tie it down. There is a steel loop at one end and a snap closure at the other for the MOLLE attachment on the 5 in. strap. The extendable pouch on the front can be used for accessories, and it has a 1 in. capacity. x 3 in. The stone is shaped like a sharpener. The length of the sheath is long. I'd like to put it on my pack. I like this knife for recreational use, but I want a more robust knife for survival or search and rescue.
The knives category has a name. The Tanto blade shape is influenced by Asian culture. It is ideal for penetration. The steel blade is easy tosharpen. The Kraton G handle is comfortable in the hand.
👤I really liked this knife and it was my first Kabar, so I felt like I made a good purchase. The blade didn't keep an edge that well, the pommel broke, and with just 1 extra inch of blade, it became very cumbersome. The Cold Steel Leatherneck D2 Tanto can be purchased using the refund. It is large, sturdy and built like a tank. The design is beautiful. It is a Ka-Bar. The sheath is a total garbage design and so busy from the cross that it snaps up. The cross snap is redundant because it clicks under pressured teeth and is so gaudy that it takes away from the simple molle construct. The plastic for the pressure teeth is very high to be able to draw quickly. The belt loop is fully enclosed, so easy to use, and it is very uncomfortable to sit down, because the plastic goes so high. Cold Steel has sheaths that are minimalist. The sheath should hold a knife without instructions. I only give this 4 stars because of the dumb sheath. You can save yourself from having to figure out how this sheath got out of the board room and into mass production by buying the leather sheath.
👤I bought it because it was Tacti- Cool. If I was going to buy a fixed blade knife, I felt it was right to perpetuate stereotypes about me being a multi ethnic Asian American. This thing is great. I wanted something different when I first opened this Ka-Bar. I have used for everything. Gutting fish, cutting meat, batoning, clearing branches, making feather sticks, and it's still going strong. The grip works well in the rain. I used it as a throwing knife while in the woods. I wanted to see how this review would hold up. It's steel at the moment, but it's rusty from the salt water. Most people won't use it the same way I have, but it will handle it. I chip the end of it. The knives I've purchased have been great. There are reviews of knives that are better. The reviews are always extreme, and cost more. My father in law broke a $300 knife after buying it. The Ka-Bar I bought years ago is still kicking butt. This is something that I can trust. This review is for my Tanto and other fixed blades that I've purchased from them.
👤I'm writing this review to show that Ka-Bar fixed the issue with the sheath scratching the blade. It shows that they listen to their customers. I was very happy with the purchase.
👤You'll never need a knife again. I like it. Enough said. Don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed. Buy it now!
👤I think this is a better blade style than the Ka-Bar. The blade is very similar in size and dimensions. The sheath is awkward. I will be removing the locking lugs. I want a knife that is easy to use. I appreciate that the sheath is ambidextrous. The slots and holes in the edges of the sheath make it possible to attach it in many different ways. Unless you want to carry it "knifeslinger" style, the nylon belt loop and snap straps are unnecessary. The sheath is made of nylon and can be changed without much trouble. The edge is usable out of the box, but still needs to be dressed and trained properly. The serrations are good for cutting rope and cord. It is what I expected, but not great. It rarely is.
A blade length of 7 inches and a weight of 14 ounces are included in the dimensions. It isdurable: The blade is made of 1095. 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.
👤This was the first time I've used this knife since I bought it. It was razor sharp and razor sharp enough to shave hair off my arms, impressive but concerning at the same time. I had doubts as to whether this knife would hold up to simple tasks around camp. I read a lot of the reviews and saw the pictures of broken blades, but also heard good things, so I gave it a chance. I know the importance of the right tool for the right job and I spend a lot of time in the outdoors. It is my belief that a fixed blade knife is not a knife that I will have around if it cannot handle the basic chores around camp. There are a lot of knives on the market that look great above a mantel, but they are only for display and not real work. Schrade is the name of the knife. You could expect it to perform most of the tasks with ease with a name like that. You would expect it to break through the wood like nothing. This wasn't the case for me. One day ago, I used it for the first time at a fire craft essentials course taught by some really knowledgeable and cool people. I mentioned to them at another class that I wanted to put this knife to the test so they could give feedback on it. The first thing I decided to tackle was my fireplace, I was in the process of setting up a bow drill. I proudly announced that I was going for it, and I was using a maple baton made by a friend of mine. I lined it up on the stress crack of the cedar log and thought about how the sound was off. I assumed it was due to the knife's thickness, the second and last strike was when the blade failed. Those around heard it and came to see it, which was buried in the cedar. We all agreed that it did not pass the test and so I switched to my Cold Steel SRK carbon V knife, which is pictured behind the cedar with the black sheath, to finish splitting the log and processing the rest of my bow drill kit. I wanted to give a back story so that people can understand my intentions. If you buy this knife, be aware that it may not be suitable for batoning. I should also point out that the knife broke the same day as the batoned oak pallet and seasoned sourwood. The new guys that have never done much in the outdoors were made to learn from it. If you want a good campcraft knife, you need to do your own research and understand that it will cost you more than this knife.
👤I thought the knife would be a performer. The Schrade marketing video stated that this knife supports batoning, but it snapped on my first try. The overall look and feel of the knife is great, but I wish it would work as promised. I will be updating this review with the results after I contact Schrade Customer Service.
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 seatbelt and glassbreaker are curios. The overall length is 8.6 inches and the blade length is 3.6 inches. It isdurable: The blade is made of black oxide high carbon steel with a black aluminum handle. It's permissible. It's ideal for everyday carry because of its convenient pocket clip, flipper/finger actuator and M.A.G.I.C. assisted opening. The liner lock and safety lock are secured, so you have confidence that the blade won't slip. Be aware that the knife has a glass break.
👤The knife has been through a lot. Solid steel construction with a smooth spring assist opening. A heavy knife. The pocket clip on the underside holds knife securely to whatever it's clipped to, but it turns outward at the end, which makes me not happy about it. The frame is very sturdy and on the "bulky" side. The blade is serrated. It's a must when you need to slice through the harder to cut items. I bought another one for my friend who is an ex-military and police detective because he loves it. The clip can damage the finish if it sticks out and you wear it in the wrong place. I only use this for work because I leave it inside my truck daily. The knife has a safety switch for the spring assist, however I never use it. I feel the safety clip is too much because there isn't enough force to be weary of. I think the manufacturer thought it was something they should include as a safety precaution. I didn't pay much attention to the lever above the thumb grip of the blade on the handle that opens the spring assisted blade, but I discovered that it was there. I've been using the thumb grip on the blade for most of the time. The button is much easier to use. If you liked the review, please help me to give honest/unbiased insight into products I have used and you have questions about. Interested in a product but don't know enough about it to request a review? Please let me know. I will see what I can do. Thank you.
👤I don't get it, but this is a great knife. The belt clip is my issue. The 2 screws holding it on have come off after only 3 months of ownership. I had to tighten them every few days, but physics got the best of me. I was expecting more from Smith & Wesson. The seller didn't reply about the belt clip. I'm stuck. Dropping to a star.
👤I'm going to try to be tactful after reading some of these reviews. I was a tad unsure of my purchase, but after receiving it, I'm very disturbed by some of the people who felt the need to say: "It's hard to open" I'm very pleased with the release so far. It makes a loud "kerchunk" sound when opening. What did you think it was metal on metal? Is there wind chimes? Come on. "I cut myself when closing it", it's a knife! Maybe a real adult will supervise next time. Or maybe you should pay attention. You can't blame yourself. I only have this knife for a few hours now, and it's already my favorite. I will update in a week or so. I'm still pleased if you don't update.
👤I received this knife quickly from Amazon, and was impressed with the tactical aesthetic of the blade. The blade was very sharp out of the box and was surprised that the assisted open isn't an automatic for how fast it releases the blade. The blade flick broke off just by being gently used. I thought it was easier to open with the switch on the back. The spring release wouldn't work after 2 days. The knife was used for less than a month. The steel used is only one step above the decorative blade steel. Get a solid blade if you pay a bit more.
Only the official "Pohsland-Knives Official" reserve rights to sell authentic knives on Amazon. The materials are the highest quality. It was designed to meet all expectations.
👤I debated between the ESEE 5 and 6. I could have gotten by with the 6. My Kabar is not as heavy as this one, but it is big. I did some punishment testing the first day I got it. I chopped through 3 4” pieces of wood, 2 pine and one Russian olive and then batoned each piece in quarters. The hair on my arm was shaved with the knife. Most of my bushcraft knives are D2 or A2 tool steel and I was skeptical about 1095 being strong enough but ESEE has changed my mind. I will be buying more with their warranty and craftsmanship. The back of the knife can't be used for a fire strikers with the coating on the blade.
👤The knife is pretty much what I expected. The Ka-bar BK-10 is a similar knife to the one I own. The ESEE scales are blocky and don't fit my hand well, something I will fix with aftermarket scales. The knife is well made and looks good, but the scales are not comfortable. I purchased and installed G10 scales from The Knife Connection that transformed my ESEE 5 which feels and looks wonderful, well worth the extra cost.
👤I received an Esee 5 and requested a replacement but it was lost in the mail. The quality of the knife does not take away from the character of the seller. The knife has a 5.25 inch blade and is.25 thickness. The handles are made of micarta. I didn't think I'd ever purchase a green blade after leaving the military, but I love it. The glass breaker is an option for self- defense. I have no interest in woodcraft, so please review the videos about the Esee 5. I did 4 years in the army and did my time in the woods, but it was not about camping. My knife is accompanied by my BK11. Since I am a Kabar & Becker enthusiast, I am impressed by this first Esee. I like the Esee 5. Should something happen to this one, I will buy another. Esee has a no questions asked warranty. It's hard to imagine breaking a tank of a knife. I returned the BK2 because I didn't have the time to order the handles and sheath for my other Becker knives, plus I didn't want to add to my knife collection. This knife is worth every penny.
👤I have been looking for a complete knife for a long time. I could carry one knife for any task. I took it to the woods for a three day backpacking trip to see how it would hold up. I didn't expect my expectations to be out of the water. Cut paths and trails. I have no doubt that it will do well. A great blade for grinding meat. Just split some wood to see how it would do. It was able to split 4.5” wood. It was still very sharp after all the wood splitting and firewood processing. If the world falls around me, my knife will hold up to any task I ask of it, because I now have the one bug out knife. For a long time to come.
It is made in the USA. It was made of the highest quality material. Comes with a sheath.
👤I own a lot of knives. My method is to buy every version of Ka-Bar knives on the market, and pick the one or two that I want, and give the rest away to my friends. I could talk myself into keeping all their knives because they are fantastic. When I went to Ka-bar, I was looking for a rugged fixed-blade that could handle business. This knife does what it says on the tin. Let's get to it! The knife is large, which is either good or bad depending on your perspective. Most knives don't fit in my hand at 6'5 because I have large hands. This one has room to spare. It is large without being unwieldy. The thickness of the blade is less than that of the BK 2. Although you're giving up some heft andDurability, I don't feel like it will matter for the majority of users. I touched it up on my sharpening stones to make sure it was where I wanted it. The sheath seems well made and it fits nicely. The value is the one thing that must be commented on with all Ka-bar knives. The bang for your buck is what you get from these knives. Don't bother looking for a knife that will give you this much in return. I own every knife under the sun that would be considered a competitor. Ka-bar is the only one in this business that delivers on the value component. It is nice to know that there is a company that will give you a bad-a$$ knife for less than $100. They make several. Don't worry, if you don't have the money to drop on a 200-300 premium blade, you can still use it. Any knife in their line-up will get you where you want to be. Excellent. The sheath is the only real problem with this knife. I want to make it clear that it isn't a bad sheath, it just doesn't knock my socks off compared to some of their competitors. Let's discuss competition. There are other blades that you can consider. I've done reviews of these as well. 1. The LMF 2 Infantry is from the Gerber group. This knife is comparable in size to a great value and has a better grip and sheath that will knock your socks off. It has a partially serrated blade, which I'm not a fan of, but it is a great knife. 2. The name of the company is The Gerber Prodigy. The LMF 2 Infantry is the slightly smaller brother of this knife. 3. The blade of the knife. A straight forward combat knife is similar to all of the above. I've owned all of the Scar blades. It is not for me to say what is the best for you. If you forgive the pun, I will say that I have to give the edge. They have a sheath that adds something to their already great package. Don't take my word for it. The knives will serve you well for a long time.

👤The shieths clasp is across the handle instead of vertically, and I have a knife with no serrated back. They made this design even better for the blade. It's not a full tang, but it's very durable. This knife is very good for days.
