Great knife with great improvements
The orginal Survivalist was ok, but the gold coating was not my thing, and it peeled off with just slight use. This new version is so much better. The coating is better, and the handles now have inserts, which make it way more comfortable in the hand. It's a big rugged knife, but it doesn't feel as heavy as it looks. Surprisingly quick in hand. It came pretty sharp, but with just a little stropping, it now cleanly slices phone book paper. You don't need to worry about breaking this thing. It's one solid piece of 52100 tool steel. It's made to take any abuse you can throw at it, so no need to baby it..baton away! Does a pretty good job at light chopping too! I was thinking of picking one up, because I'm a big blade lover, and a sucker for anything with a clip point, but when I saw this one was coming out, decided to wait for it, and I;m glad I did. The improvements were well worth the wait. They made a decent knife into a great knife. If you're a big blade fan like myself, grab one! Well worth every penny. The sheath is decent too..not the greatest one ever, but sufficient. I may kydex it, but I'm not in a big hurry..the stock model does the job. It does have a slight rattle, but it's not bad. The retention is strong enough you don't really need the retaining strap, but it does add a little extra security. 52100 is some pretty tough stuff, and in my experience, will hold an edge better than 1095. Many custom makers favor it for those reasons. It will rust, but the coating should help, and if you keep a little mineral oil or beeswax on it, you should be fine. I absolutely love it, and if you like big knives, you will too.

Better than the 36MC
I purchased the golden 36MC a while ago and have used it a fair bit. My wife wanted one too, so I bought her this one. (36MH)It is almost identical to the 36MC. Same great blade, quite sharp out of the box.But, it has scales. They are hard plastic, retained by 4 screws with a threaded spacer in between. Through 2 holes in the tang. Grip is way better on this one. I don't fear losing my grip on this, nearly as much.The handle/tang is different under the scales. The recess is more pronounced and more "sided" to fit the scales snuggly into place.I measured the weight. 410g (14.5oz) vs. the 36MC @ 518g (18oz). This is probably due to the extra material removed from the handle/tang to fit the scales into place. This also moves the balance point right at the quillions, vs. right behind the quillions on the 36MC.And its a dark grey coating on the blade.The only other difference is the retaining strap on the sheath is slightly longer because the scales stick out slightly from the handle/tang.
