Fairly good knife. Have used it for a few hikes, about three weeks total. 



-pretty lightweight

-blade feels secure in open position

-holds an edge pretty well

-good clip holds the knife in place



-handle could have smoother edges

-almost fell apart when I tried to split some 1" firewood lengthwise to make some kindling

-needs a torx-head screwdriver to tighten it up, and who brings that on a hike if the need occurs?


A good knife for gutting fish, cutting ropes and do some light whittling. But I'll bring my Cold Steel Master Hunter if I know  I have to rely on a knife for tougher needs.
