It has no problem cutting through the hardiest tree branches or impressively batoning   logs without losing its razor sharp edge.

The Best Survival Knife Pros and Cons


Perfect for cleaning and skinning game
Blade is easy to sharpen
Blade sharpness retention is superb
Sheath is high quality and well made
Fire starter is great but you have to be familiar with using one
Great fit and finish to knife and sheath


The button snap closure for the leather retention strap is tight
The very most tip of the blade is ever so slightly lopsided
Sharpening stone is a bit short

Now note because this knife is handmade, you may or may not get an imperfect blade sometimes but I always say to send it back if you are not totally satisfied. However all in all this knife is easily the best survival knife out there for the price.
