a very capable, and durrable tool.
I have used this tool for most of the tasks that is was designed for, and I was impressed with it's overall performance at every turn. I have very large hands ( XL leather gloves, and they are tight until the stretch out) so I found the hook at the tail end a little tight, and pinching on my little finger. other than that I can not find anything bad to say about the tool. I do not call this a knife, because even though the blade it's self is knife shaped, this is not a traditional knife, to be used for food prep, or fine tasks. it is a tool to process wood, build structures, clear brush, etc. I am not overly fond of the sheath, for wearing on my person, but that is OK, I have carried it lashed to my pack, much as I do my axe, or bow saw. this is a really big, heavy piece of steel, and it does everything it needs to. after several trips into the woods, and a lot of hard use, I have not found any damage to the blade, or edge, and even the coating has held up better than I expected.
