Sheath: 7 Oz Hand Stitched Leather Dangler
Fits Hand Comfortably In All Positions: This knife fits the hand pretty well in almost every single position. Using this knife as a draw knife is a little more difficult than say the IHK Bush Clever (See It Here), but it simply wasn't built for that purpose it was built as a general all-around woods knife. The blade can also be utilized as a self defense tool as it works. The contour of the handle and the scalloping near the blade really provide a finished look to the blade and really helps with control of the blade!
Manageable Blade Length: At 4.75" this knife is a nice blend of small and manageable for fine tasks, yet robust enough for processing down five wood via batoning. I was able to make a try stick quite easily with this knife and was still able to baton 4" Oak and then took it to the kitchen to prepare a meal without any issue. The knife felt comfortable and the blade was easily managed during every task I put before the knife.
One Cutting Edge w/ No Serrations: This blade obviously has no serrations making it ideal for processing fire wood via batoning and easy to field sharpen. The scandi grind has retained paper cutting sharpness after several uses in the kitchen and in the field and has been one of the best blades for edge retention that I have tested recently.
High Carbon Steel: There are very few knives that I would buy or even review that aren't high carbon steel and this one is no exception. The blade is made from a high-carbon 1095 variant of steel that will field sharpen easily and will throw sparks with flint/steel quite easily.
Heavy-Duty sheath with Ferro Rod Loop: Sara (Christopher's Girlfriend), makes amazing looking leather sheaths (I still have a small belt sheath she made that has a deer stamped into the leather that everyone seems to love). While most of her sheaths don't come with a ferro rod loop standard you could easily use a different sheath and use this for more of a minimalist carry.
one of my favorite knives- see my review HERE). This knife has no problem batoning through material and just felt like a very sturdy extension of your arm when utilizing this tool.
Full Tang: There is no question this knife will last an extremely long time! The knife is obviously full tang and once you get your hand on this knife (assuming you're the lucky winner you will see just how bomb-proof this beautiful knife really is!
