This thing is a BEAST! I absolutely love it. I have modified the sheath to ranger carry and added tan mikarta scales. You're not going to break a ¼ inch hunk of steel, it will break you first. Then it will replace you and raise your children to be beasts also.
I have bet my life on this blade numerous times and it is a warlord. I have split firewood with it, cracked coconuts, pried open a door, butchered small animals and broke a padlock with it. It weighs a million pounds give or take and the handle is about half that. I made some teak scales for it and it is front heavy but still feels super good in the hand. When you swing it with force it bites deep into whatever you hit. Whatever the finish is on the blade stays on. Its been bashed with rocks, bare metal ball peen hammer and other hard objects found in nature. If the metal is exposed it will rust. I have managed to keep that at bay after a little steel wool and gun oil. If you keep the stock scales you can rough them up with sand paper and get a better gripping surface since it can be super slippery if wet.
Strong and sharp takes a beating and still cuts. only downside to kit is getting knife out of the sheath you better have some thumb muscle it’s a safe system.. maybe too safe for needing to get knife out quickly. But knife is excellent!
Yes, this is hefty and you wouldn't just carry it anywhere, but for the outdoors or a zombie apocalypse, this is the one you would want on your belt. Their marketing used to read that "it would field dress a Buick." It would. Easily. That blade is full-tang and 1/4" inch thick. You need one of these - Wild Bill
If you’re looking for a knife that you can beat the tar out of and sharpen very easy this is the one for you.
This thing is huge! I love the handle--not only is it an amazingly comfortable design for the blade, but it has pockets for mini survival items if you can keep a hexkey with it--maybe that reduces the utility a bit. Blade is great, a blunt instrument that isn't blunt at all. Coating seems delicate, and it won't spark a firesteel. Sheath is minimal and mediocre for what it is.
Came razor sharp right out of the box well-made craftsmanship well worth the price
My son in law has one of these and I got to "play" with it on a recent camping excursion. Man, this is a sharpened crow bar of a knife.......the blade is unbelievably thick and I watched my son in law actually try to break the thing....he drove it into a tree and stood on it with all of his 245lb weight........blade not only didnt break but remained perfectly straight!!! Holds an edge like you wouldnt believe and when we got back I ran it through my Ken Onion sharpener and reformed the edge and got it shaving sharp.........try shaving something that is a quarter of an inch thick......it will blow your mind. Oh, someone mentioned roughing up the handles with sandpaper....there is a better way. Either use a woodburning tool or a soldiering iron you can replace the tip of or be willing to try to remove melted......whatever from and stipple the handle like people do with polymer handguns. You can even make pattern stippling or just space the stippling at the same intervals and you can make a factory handle that CANNOT slip out of your hands. Folks, this is a great last forever knife!
