See My Review Here-LINK) or place a spear point into my kit (I have a ready man card in my Micro 10 C's Kit that has several spear points on it). So what do I get by giving up that spear point with this knife? 1) Meat Cleaver, 2) Survival Knife; 3) Draw Knife, 4) Chopper, 5) Pry Bar, 6) Flat Head Screw Driver, 7) Carving Knife and 8) Razor sharp durable edge. If you're ready to pull the trigger on this knife already you can do so on the Indy Hammered Knives Webpage (http://ihknives.com/products/the-bush-cleaver). The knife I reviewed in the video below has the following options: 1) Amboyna Scales; 2) Dangler Sheath; 3) Lanyard; and 4) Matching beads (mine were upgraded further to include pace bears- contact him for pricing on the additional beads). So lets dig into the actual review video and let me show you how this great knife performs for field use.

Just a little info on the handle. I love this wood and is probably my favorite as it has so much burl and character and the finish is absolutely all natural. No varnish or sealer, just a little danish oil and a high polish (like all IHK knives) so this handle will look like this 100 years from now. Amboyna is technically not a distinct species, but is the name of the burl wood from any of the Pterocarpus species. Most commonly this is Narra (Pterocarpus indicus), but burl sections of Burma Padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus) are also sold under the name Amboyna. The name is derived from Ambon Island in Indonesia, where much of the figured wood is believed to have been initially exported. Amboyna is among the most expensive and sought-after of all burls, and is frequently sold as veneer or as small turning/craft blanks. Some suppliers specify “Red Amboyna” for material with the typical rich reddish brown heartwood, or “Golden Amboyna” for pieces with lighter yellowish brown coloration. It’s not unusual for pieces to contain sharply contrasting yellowish sapwood. Amboyna is commonly used for fine furniture, turned objects, electric guitar tops, knife/gun grips, and other small specialty wood items. Amboyna has become a rarity that is very scarce and is even difficult to obtain in veneer form in America. The wood is dense and course making it difficult to work and finish. Despite the shortcomings of the workability of this species it turns satisfactorily and takes a nice high polish. Amboyna is The World’s most popular and sought after burl thus leading to a short supply.
