Great Knife Review by Bill
The information presented on the website is accurate. It is a very stout survival knife. I particularly like that the butt end can be used to hammer. I also like how easy it is to keep sharp - thanks to the carbon steel and factory edge.

Things missing on the website - it is a true spear point. Both sides of the tip carry an edge, You won't put your hand on the back of the blade and push with this knife. Also, it is not really a saw style blade on the back. It is too wide to saw with. I was told it was for cutting notches for snares but I can't speak to that. I can say that it makes good fire starter for a flint or fire steel.

Who can pass up a great knife made in the USA at this price?
