For the price, you cannot beat the quality. I have the Heavy Duty model and it is great. The carbon Steel does require a little more maintenance but no problem. I like the sturdy plastic sheath.
- Price is excellent
- Stays aharp
I have two of the Heavy Duty version of this knife. I put one in the kitchen to test and one in the backpack to test on the trail.
The knife holds an excellent edge and I have sliced many a tomato, carrots, ham, hotdogs, etc in the kitchen. On the trail, I have batoned and cut 550 cord.
The Heavy Duty model has a thicker overall blade. If you are used to using stainless steel blades, you should put a patina on this knife because it is Carbon Steel (how to on youtube).
Finally, the regular version of this is probably a better kitchen knife and the Heavy Duty (HD) is better for the trail. For the price EXCELLENT KNIFE!
Companion Heavy Duty is a powerful tool for bushcrafters, hunters and outdoor people.
For batoning the knife needs great strength requirements. Then Companion Heavy Duty is to recommend with its three-layer injection molding and the little blunter edge angle 27 ° for maximum sharpness resistance (default is otherwise 23 °).
Even Bushcraft Black and Orange have the thicker (3.2 mm) blade with 27 ° edge angle. These knives will not let you down!
The knife has an extra large ergonomic handle with a soft high friction grip. The knife has a blade of 3.2 mm thick carbon steel with high load capacity. The classic scandi grind combined with high quality carbon steel makes the knife easy to resharpen. Military-green plastic sheath with a belt clip.
