Product Description ::
This knife is great for batoning through firewood, cutting tarp stakes, notching poles, trimming branches, chopping through old stumps for fatwood (if you're not sure what fatwood is - just do a search on google), and also helps for making a tripod to hang supper from over a warm, inviting fire after a long day in the wild. The knife in the handle comes in handy for whittling and carving the smaller stuff and preparing meals, and the saw, although short, does work quite well for trimming off small to medium branches. Both blades hold a decent edge and when needed they sharpen up nicely.
Along with the chopping abilities of a machete or bolo, this wilderness survival knife also can be used as a draw knife, and a notching tool for setting up many types of primitive traps (where legally allowed), and tons of other uses in bush craft. Top edge behind saw is not sharpened.
