I used these growing up, so I'm a little partial to them. Generally they are well balanced knives, with blades that hold an edge pretty well. These knives are durable, and comfortable to use in any application. The holsters are solid, and the whetstones are functional, if small. For the price, they work well, although there are no chambers in the pommel as you may remember from older models or similar designs, so you'll have to keep your fishing line, matches, or miniature compasses elsewhere. Not the BEST knives for self defense, or throwing, IMHO, but, again, wonderful for producing kindling, building an emergency shelter, cutting yourself free of entanglement, etc. I wouldn't try to fillet a fish with one, but you could really lash this down and make a decent spear. The leather handles are very sympathetic to the hands, and won't slip when water-logged.
