Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $15

I bought this knife brand new at an army surplus store 10 years ago and have loved it ever since. It is Navy issue with a 440A stainless steel 6 1/2 inch blade.It has superior rust resistance, the blade is super strong, and holds an edge well.

I have used it for processing animals, cutting down small trees, as a hammer, as a pry bar, repairing gear and so on. The blade can be difficult to get an edge on but once you do it stays.

It comes with a plastic sheath that has a metal belt hanger and is big and bulky so I recommend buying a leather one. But the knife itself is fantastic and I never go in the back country without it.
