The knife feels great in a hand and is capable of whatever you need it for.

I bought this karambit style cleaver out of curiosity. Then I saw a survivalist using a similar style blade. He said it was better than a machete because of compactness, It would chop larger logs. He felt it was better than most hatchets for compactness and edge retention. It's also handy enough for smaller jobs like shaving off bark and shaving fire kindling I've found this one can and did have a razors edge and that karambit point is also a helpful addition. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of five is because the karambit style ring has squared off edges which makes it quite uncomfortable while performing some jobs. I filed it down, rounding all the sharp handle parts, making it quite comfortable to use. It seems to hold a decent edge but I like things very sharp and I like to sharpen them so I don't give it much of a chance to get dull. If your handy and don't mind making a knife or tool work better for you. And your a bit of a survivalist at heart. I think you'll be surprised and happy with this tough little tool in your survival gear lineup. Especially for the price. A little work, a little ingenuity and you'll have a very useful tool that could very easily save your bacon in very bad situation!

this thing is BIG. i have large hands and i still cant comfortable hold and swing it while using the ring on the end of the handle. it is made well and sharp out of the box. it is a great addition to my collection and the size is intimidating. the sheath is made very well and has a small pouch for storing a sharping stone (my guess). great quality and shipped on time, only wish i had larger hands to wield it like it was meant to be.
