This knife just screams quality. I was a little concerned over the blade length but actually it’s turned out to be a lot more functional than my other longer knives. Very easy to control and batons very well. I have two minor criticisms, the firesteel fell apart the 6th time I used it. No real biggy just epoxy’d it back together and I would like the sleeve on the sheath that the firesteel fits in to be a bit shorter so the steel protrudes and you can loop the elastic over the end to stop it sliding off. Overall I would recommend this knife to anyone and I will certainly be recommending it when I teach my next class next month.
I’ve held back a few weeks before posting a review… wanted to get a bit of use in first! I LOVE this knife. I’d initially wondered if this smaller length would be an issue, but it’s really a big benefit, making it far more versatile for simple carving tasks as well as being very capable for heavier duty tasking. It’s hugely capable, beautifully made & keeps an edge better than any other knife I’ve owned. The bog oak scales feel great… cool to the touch at first, beautifully finished and just a fascinating material. As always, Mark has been very, very helpful indeed (thanks mark for the great comms and help) Did I happen to mention that I love this knife???
Excellent and swift service .
I recently recieved this knife and matching firesteel. I am yet to take it out but having held and looked over the quality of the product is evident. Looking forward to bringing out and putting it to use.
