Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Why it's still a great classic blade
Squared the spine with a mill file in less than 5 minutes (it arrived quite rough, like a raw stamping with the burr knocked off). Now it throws sparks off a fire rod like a champ! Prepared materials for a fire. A wrist-thick chunk of sycamore and another of acacia. Both very dry. No need to baton...the blade was so sharp and handle so comfy I had them feathered down to nubs in no time with no hand or arm issues. (The handle is more comfortable for me than my Mora Heavy Duty Companion.) Used the spine and fire rod to then start tinder...cheery blaze in no time! Used it to whittle a spoon after prepping the blank with a hatchet. Works well, but I preferr the Mora 122 blade shape for detail work between the bowl and handle. Would love to set this light tool up as a neck carry but cannot due to laws in CA. A little reluctant to wear on my belt since the knife/sheath is so light you can't tell it's there and there is only friction retention. Bottom line: for the price and weight you get a great woodsmans tool to accompany a hatchet or machete.
