The Story
In my quest for the perfect large "outdoorsman" knife, this knife combines several key elements that I deem necessary for a dedicated survival/camp knife:
1. 6" blade, which is a perfect balance between control and power.
2. 5" handle, which gives leverage and a good grip, even for people with large hands.
3. Lashing holes above the grip, and a lanyard hole on the butt, which provide the ability to make a spear if need be.
4. High carbon steel, which can take a beating, and will be relatively sharpen-able in the field.
5. Rugged handle materials that will resist moisture, cracking, and rot.

The Purpose
Camping, Outdoors, Survival

Please make a note on your order or send me an email regarding the handle material and blade finish that you'd like. If I don't hear from you, I'll use a standard material of my choice.
