    A really competent "survival" knife

    Posted by Alijami on 28th Apr 2019

    I have the orange handled version because I prefer G10. Its not excessively orange just a tad "oranger" than wood. A business like "survival" knife avoiding an excessively tactical appearance. The 4mm stock gives it a really solid and nicely weighted feel in the hand. Full tang with a small pommel. 12C27 won't suit everybody but I value its excellent corrosion resistance and ease of working. More about that in a moment. A simple kydex sheath which the knife clicks into thanks to the handle screw heads. First thing I did was to remove the pull through sharpener fire steel combo. Who wants a carbide pull-through? Well not me. Ex-factory the spine does draw a spark but not greatly because it is not that sharp. Well we know how to deal with that and 12C27 is easy worked. Done.

    I wouldn't say my sample was particularly sharp ex-factory and another sharpening issue became evident when I used my Lansky. The 25deg position wouldn't dress the bevel on one side. I can see the stock has a very slight twist. So it has been factory sharpened on an orthogonal datum but the Lansky sharpens on a stock datum. I'm still working away with the course hone. Getting better but not there yet. Maybe I need to invest in a diamond hone. The 12C27 is responding fine to the re-profiling progress.

    I'm more interested in bush-crafting than "survival" so mostly I favour and use a Mora Scandi grind but for more general purpose use the W12 is a great go to.

    Excellent knife, excellent value.

    Posted by Greg on 5th Sep 2018

    I bought one of these from HH a few months ago and have been waiting to use it before posting a review. In short, it is a lot of knife for the money. The built quality is excellent (I have the orange synthetic handle version), the steel is very good quality 12C27, the sheath is well made and provides a secure grip. Aside from the knife being great, the sheath has a very clever design allowing it to be clipped to a belt securely without removing the belt, and easily removed again.

    The only issues are very minor - the sheath needed a slight reshaping to allow the knife to be removed more easily, but that's personal preference; and the fire steel is mounted in the wrong place, but can be moved; and the fire steel is quite soft.

    All in all an excellent bit of gear,

    lovely tool

    Posted by sam on 20th May 2015

    I really want to give this five stars but it came dull and took quite a bit of sharpening. Shouldn't have to do that with a knife of this price. It has been brilliant so far though. Comfortable and easy to use and holds its edge well, now my main bushcraft knife. The sheath is very good too although I removed the ferro rod and holder (just personal preference). Overall excellent.

    Quality and value

    Posted by Tranter on 15th Feb 2015

    If you need a reliable and practical general purpose outdoor knife, this will do the job. I am very impressed with the quality of the knife and sheath. Really well made, the knife has a superb decent blade with full tang construction. I went for wood because I like the look and feel. The sheath is excellent, practical and well designed. All in all an amazing knife for the price. There is even a firesteel and sharpener attached. (Removable) . All for under £100.00? Hard to beat.

    A superb knife for the serious bushcrafter

    Posted by Sumo Sean on 13th Feb 2015

    I have been lucky enough to have had one of these on loan to me for the past few months and as soon as I saw them for sale on Heinnie I jumped at the chance and bought one for myself.

    The build quality is superb overall with the blade being well balanced and tough enough to handle most tasks thrown at it. The wooden handle is genius in its design and manufacture.

    The drop point has been well contoured and shaped. The blade arrives very well sharpened ready for use.

    The kydex sheath is well produced. I have never been a fan of kydex but in this case it has been well thought out. The firesteel is fine and the field sharpener is of good quality although with a blade like this all you need to do is strop it regularly to maintain its edge.

    I think this knife will be serving me well for years to come. Top notch service from Heinnie as always.
