4) Solid Flat Pommel: The pommel is is extended and on a slight angle. While this does technically fulfill this requirement, it makes life very difficult when trying to drive in tent stakes due to the angle you have to hold the knife. I didn't notice the angle as much when breaking open acorns but the angle was difficult to manage for tent stakes (something I use the pommel of my knife for on a regular basis). Also the fact that the scales and the pommel do not provide you with a fully flat striking surface makes it even more difficult to strike your intended target in an efficient manner. Driving a nail into a shelter or to hang a posted sign was quite a difficult task with this setup.
11) Full Tang Knife: This blade is full tang and built for consistent abuse. It batoned everything I put in front of it and made several cords of fire wood with it. Chopping, well it chopped through the arm sized log in the center picture but honestly chopping was no advantage over batoning with something that size but its nice to know its an option. Feather sticking post abuse, well that didn't happen the shavings were the best I could get with that knife and I was able to light them with a ferro rod.
