If you know anything about knives buy it. Jul 06, 2009
By Kevin O'brien
ok a few things, first this is a full tang knife, and it comes with a fire starter. yes it comes blunter than a butter knife, and yes the rope grip is incredibly uncomfortable. BUT, the hilt has holes with makes re-wrapping the handle with some rope or para-cord very easy, once re-wrapped the handle is comfortable, also the steel is decent quality, so with a little sharpening the knife becomes very usable. bottom line 7$ and 10 minuets of your time and you have yourself a decent knife.

Great fire starter with free knife attached. Mar 21, 2010
By David H. Clark
Let me make a few assumptions if you are considering buying this knife. 1) You are not planning on buying a $200 Gerber. 2) You do not consider yourself a survivalist but you do DVR Man Vs Wild. 3) You're buying as a gift for someone who DVRs Man Vs Wild. 4) In all honesty the biggest thing you have ever needed a "survival" knife for while camping is to Rambo open a bag of chips.
This was my first full tang knife and I honestly bought it thinking I could do more with it than I really can. Once I stopped trying to baton trees down with it and used it for what it really is, its a good knife. It easily beats any similarly priced folder or multi-tool (and hollow handle piece of junk) for back woods functionality, and its a very educational knife. Its pretty much just a chunk of stainless steel, so as long as you dont beat it to death, nothing can go wrong with it.
You must sharpen it. You must do something with the handle. (I went on youtube and learned how to para-cord a handle.) Ive used it as a spearhead, for making tent pegs and splitting kindling. All in all its a good tool that you can keep on you without ever knowing its there until you need it, and its great for opening bags of chips.
The firesteel on the other hand is incredible! If you have never used one before you will love starting fires with it. Knowing you can make fire without matches or lighters gives you a warm fuzzy feeling.
So I recommend owning this knife for the experience of of owning this knife. Also, consider a Mora, or Cold Steel Bushman.

Midget Survival Knife May 16, 2010
By Serious Ed
First of all this knife is China stainless. The pseudo-paracord might as well be the yarn your grandmother knits with. You'll have to do a handle re-wrap. The blade comes dull and the sheath is cheap crap. It's a solid tang knife with a good feel once re-wrapped. The fire starter is really cool and works well.
**I've had this knife for a year now and it has done very well as a fishing knife on multiple excursions. It sharpens up with the "Smiths" pocket sharpener I have like a razor blade. Excellent for trout cleaning. The killer to this buy is the sheath. It's just pure junk. But for the price, I've learned to live with it.

A Nice Suprise May 12, 2010
I only really bought this survival knife for the firesteel. I just thought of the knife being a nice bonus, but it turned out to be a nice surprise. Larger than I thought, more comfortable than I thought (reviews here don't like the corded grip, however, I found it comfortable enough), and significantly better steel than I thought. Sharpens very well, seems to hold and edge, and because it's so cheap I "tested" it by cutting up several large cardboard boxes thoroughly and completely through a mop handle. Nice.
Firesteel is fantastic too. I'm going to re-sharpen it up a bit more and throw it in the glovebox or take it with me camping. It's the perfect thing to toss and forget about, until a day comes around where you might need it, or maybe REALLY need it, and it would become invaluable.
When I got it from Amazon it was in a plain white box with large letters, "HUNTING KNIFE", all over it which I thought was funny. An unrelated side note, for some reason the box it came in was completely unsealed, and worse it was a strange simple box that kind of just folded in on itself that could be opened very easily.

People need to get a grip Mar 10, 2012
I read reviews for this knife before buying it, and I was quite surprised at some reviews. I paid like 7 bucks for this, and I added a couple onto an order I already placed, so I didn't even pay shipping from Amazon. I think it is pretty awesome for the price. The fire starter is ok, the blade was somewhat sharp, and thick steel. Now I know that the sheath sucks, the cordage is crappy, and the thing is no Rambo knife. I have to go back to the fact it only cost 7 bucks! A sharpener and some 550 cord and you are set. What are all the brokenhearted reviews about? I have knives I paid 20-30 dollars for that are nowhere near as good as this thing. I have some very expensive knives that I am scared to really use because I don't want to damage them. Not the case here. I can pry things, throw it at a tree when I get bored, and use it for just about anything without worry, because it cost me 7 dollars. If I break it or lose it, I will just add another one onto my next Amazon order. So, if you are debating this knife because of reviews on here, let not your heart be troubled. It is a good buy, and you won't be sorry unless you are expecting 100 dollar quality. Then you will end up writing a review that makes people think "what's wrong with this guy?".
