Svord General Outdoor knife
Greeting once again! I bought this knife not sure what I would get for $26. This this is sweet! while not replacing the Mora companion this is a great compliment. Mora works well as a bushcraft carver that also works well as a field knife, the smaller tasks. The Svord is more a field knife that will cover most carving tasks (the tip is not quite as pointed as the Mora). But the emphasis for the two is not the same. "General Outdoors" indicates utility carving, game processing and butchery, camp kitchen work, etc. This blade works so very well in everyone of these tasks! I don't baton save dire emergencies (lost the tomahawk) so I don't bother abuse testing. If you want to abuse your knife get a Ka-bar or Ontario 499. I did do some carving and kitchen work and was very pleased. The handle is a bit big but will fit every sized hand. I can't imagine a normal hand this thing won't fit, maybe Andrea the Giant. Both my Svord's came very sharp, stopping made them hair popping sharp. Did not require much extra work, very impressive. Being a field knife first, the emphasis is placed on skinning, butchering, sheltering, and utility carving. The convex edge excels at this and retains it's sharpness incredibly well. Nicely balanced, the weight is in the handle leaving the blade to feel very light (the knife as a whole is very light, a balanced knife that weighs a pound still sucks) I think Nessmuk and Kephart would be proud to own this knife given an opportunity, it amazes me fewer people know of this maker outside their "peasant folder". The sheath, again, is my only gripe as it is a rubberized canvas. Protects well, very long lasting... you're gonna need to pay more attention to keeping your blade oiled and cared for. This includes periodic pulling from storage and proper care if it goes on the shelf for emergency use. Therefore; worth every penny. In my quest to help others get started in the adventure called "bushcraft" without getting caught up by the geirdo crowd telling you folks to sell a kidney for a tool, the Svord General Outdoors Knife is an outstanding choice without breaking the bank or scaring away anyone looking to get started.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material
Terrible Sheath
This high carbon blade performs nicely. The handle is a plastic type material and the seams on each side were slightly raised and definitely would be uncomfortable if not sanded down. I know this is a budget knife but the sheath is one of the worst I've seen. It's not leather by the way. The part of the sheath that would hold a fire steel is ridiculous. Buy this knife for the high carbon blade then no problem. I guess you would want to find another sheath if you planned on wearing it unless you like looking like a dork. If your just throwing it in the glove box or tackle box the sheath will hold the knife just fine.
