Great tool, not for beginners
Let's clear the air a bit, because I'm sure you're checking this out because you think this knife will make you "cool like Hallam." This is a GREAT knife and does everything they say it will and then some. That being said, only those who have actually forayed into the bush to pay their dues can get the most out of this knife. The thickness and grind angles are HELL if you don't have the know how (and tools) to properly deal with them. There is nothing that this knife can do that a small blade (3-5 inch) and a little ingenuity can do just as well. But, and I do mean BUT, this tool makes attaining those things easier. We're talking about shelter, fire, tools for attaining water and food. When time matters, this tool can get it done quicker. But ONLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. In regards to fighting/combat, I can't say because I don't use my blades for those purposes. That being said, even a rock can be deadly if you know how to use it. Bottom line: If you are a beginner with little or no knowledge about living in the bush, this is TOO MUCH knife for you and I don't mean that in a bad way, trust me. If you've paid your dues and you know what you're doing, this knife can be your lifesaver. Good Luck!
