Great Knife at a Great Price
I've had mine for a few years. Purchased the HD on the recommendation of a former USAF SERE instructor, as he said it was the only fixed blade he carried in the field anymore. So far I've created friction fire sets, harvested natural materials (from cordage to tinder), preped food, carved notches for traps to try sticks, prepared fire materials, carved spoons, and done a myriad of camp related tasks over the years. Feels ALOT more robust than the regular Companion, with no worries about toughness or strength in the blade. Would be a solid choice for taking into the back country.
