Wonderful light duty camping knife.

I took it for a one day trip into the GW national forest. Did an excellent job cutting paracord and other small objects. Made some feather sticks for the fire and just for the heck of it, a few holes in the earth. No problem with basic tasks and since I didn't kill anything, I cut up some beef jerky out of boredom. Works well. I like having one smooth and one serrated edge, that's been the norm for me since I was a deck seaman many years ago.

Obviously its too skinny for batoning wood, but I always thought it better to use a hatchet or something heavy duty for such work, and since I was camping & not surviving I did have such tools.

Cleans easily, sharpening is a bit of work but it held its edge during the trip. I could have put a fire steel or sharpening stone in the handle but I never got around to it.

Sheath is excellent, locks and unlocks easily but not too easily. Never got to use the glass breaker for anything.
