Customer Reviews

great knife very sharp
ALEXANDER H. on Sep 10, 2020

awesome knife havent gotten to take it out overnight yet but screwing around with it i havent been disapointed tried it out in the back yard seems to live up to the reputation . so sharp i shaved about 5 inches of my arm because there was so little drag i thought i wasnt doing anything. edit i took it out on a trip chops way better than id expect for the weight. friend who has always used the kabar mark 2 usmc is buying one after checking mine out

Is there a knife better than this?
Calub A. on Oct 2, 2019

This is a great knife. I have chopped, cut, sliced, split wood, etc with this blade, and it has not failed yet. Just the finish starts to wear off a little. I own several kabars, and this is one of my favorites.

Go to Woods Blade
Dylan D. on Jan 10, 2018

A great primary woods knife. The blade is a powerful chopper and handles batoning well. Finer tasks like feathersticking are also within the realms of this blade’s capabilities. The handle is perfectly shaped for chopping, and the distinct “hook” near the pommel keeps your hand from sliding back. However, the zytel is fairly slick. The sheath is also somewhat mediocre. I’ve owned this knife for about 2 years, and I think I will finally purchase an aftermarket sheath and handle scales to make up for these minor shortcomings.

This knife is a beast.
alex p. on Mar 27, 2016

This knife is really good for hiking or camping. It'll cut through wood very easily whether you are chopping or batoning. The only set back is that the grip is a little bit slippery.

Good knife that fills a niche
Zachary D. on Jan 19, 2018

The best use for this knife is chopping and batoning, but after splitting a few logs I felt the edge on mine dulled rather quickly and I almost wished I had ended up using an axe rather than a knife because that edge was so nice when I got it. Light chopping and camp tasks are what I would stick to with this knife.
