I was planning to buy few things for my Camping trip and I was looking for an Hatchet, instead I found this. Nice, Strong and good finish with solid grip. and at a very affordable price of Rs 1800.
Usually, i am moving for trekking. said equipment is very useful for small wooden stick cutting for fire, even for rigid grass also.
Pros: Good ergonomics.
Good blade geometry
Cons: The Worst thing about this knife is its metal. It is made of stainless steel and not carbon steel.
Stainless steel retains edge for a longer time, but is practically impossible to sharpen in the field. That is why most outdoor knives are made of carbon steel.
The carbon steel most widely used for knives is 1095.
2) The thickness of the knife is not sufficient enough to give the user the confidence to use this as a survival knife, i.e., to baton wood.
These two aspects, most importantly, the type of steel used in this knife, is its greatest drawback.

great grip, hard steel, blade,sharp,pouch,handle,
This is a real tough knife. It has a great grippy handle around the full tang.So far it has been up to everything I have thrown at it including making feather sticks,battoning and food preparation. It is superb value for money and will cope with many tasks where other knives would fail.
Sharp, good grip and really strong.
I'm a big knife fan, not because I'm over-compensating or carry fantasies of fighting a mountain lion with one. I like big knives because they help me in multipurpose tasks when I am in Jungles. Right from cutting shrubs, firewood and especially while clearing paths when entering a thick softwood and shrub area.
This knife is made from a top of the line stainless steel which is rustproof. Sharp with a very good grip.
Let's be clear, we're talking about fixed-blade knives here. It may sound counterintuitive, but fixed blades are safer than their folding counterparts. That's because they're enormously strong and will never fold back on you, cutting your fingers and hands.
Loved this knife to the core. This Knife is one of a Gem in my knife collection.
Rustproof. Sharp. Light weight. Good grip
