- Fit and finish
Love everything about this knife. It is solid, well assembled, great material (s30v steel, g-10 handles, titanium holds everything together.) This knife has proven to be excellent at bushcraft, batoning, feather sticks, striking flint, etc. ergonomics of the handle make a lot more sense when you're holding the knife and understand the different grips it's designed to accommodate.
Thick steel blade inspires confidence that the knife will survive normal use and abuse, as well as the fact that the s30v holds a great edge while at the same time being easy to sharpen. The sheath is good, although kydex would be preferable in humid climates.
If you're looking for a zombie apocalypse, cut through a car door, mall ninja weapon, keep looking. If you're looking for an excellent bushcraft tool that would serve you well, even in the event of worst case wilderness scenario, get a bm162. It would be hard to find a better blade.
