    One year after

    Posted by Brian on 12th Apr 2018

    Here is an update to my previous review, posted 2/3/17. Its as I suspected - very useful knife, if not very refined. In answer to the review by Cannon-16, who carries his on his tractor - neither do I sit and polish this knife (it would be a waste of time). My comment about not coming with a quality leather sheath is less of a criticism of the cheap vinyl sheath it does have, but more that the blurb on Heinnie's website states that it comes with a leather sheath. This is frankly misleading, and I am surprised to see the text still states that it comes with a leather sheath. All in all its been a good rough use knife, comfortable to use and up to all sensible tasks. Mines got a bit of rust, despite my best efforts to dry and clean it, but I, too have better things to do than sit cleaning knives all day!

    Great practical tool

    Posted by Cannon-16 on 15th Dec 2017

    Ok, so its a bit rough as some reviewers point out. But really, get a life. This is a £40, handmade (in NZ), practical knife, designed to be used, not polished to sit on a mantlepiece. Yes, the sheath is basic and hardly pretty, but it works (more than can be said for many more expensive knives). The handle is large, easy to handle, doesn't get too cold, can be used with gloves and is usefully visible in pack or (in my case) a tractor. The blade is good enough out the box, but it is a big old thing (don't be assuming its some little whittling bushcraft toy). Not massively thick, with a bit of flex on heavy jobs, but it sharpens easily and if kept dry and oiled, won't rust. If you need an affordable, practical cutting tool for various uses, you can't go wrong with this. I like it more (and use it more) than most of my vastly more expensive knives. Amazing service from HH once more!

    OK - bit rough really.

    Posted by Brian on 2nd Mar 2017

    I have just received this and am a little underwhelmed. For a start, mine did not come with a quality leather sheath - it had a pretty dodgy vinyl sheath which is simply riveted together and already fraying around the belt slot. The knife is roughly finished, as I expected with some flashing still around the moulded plastic handle. Mine arrived reasonably sharp once I rubbed off the lacquer, but was vastly improved with a little attention from my Lansky sharpening system. The knife itself is a good general purpose, but I would say its over-priced for such a simple blade with obviously free-hand ground bevels, moulded handle and dodgy sheath. It will no doubt become my favourite work knife, but I will have to make or get a decent sheath for it...

    Used daily. Very versatile due to shape and size. The blade sharpens easily and cleans up with a polish.

    good utility knife

    Had this a few weeks now, good sensible no-nonsense knife that will easily take care of all camp chores. Good steel and handle is great for guys like me who have large mitts. As for the sheath well you could pay 20 quid just for that alone.

    almost there

    Good knife. Sturdy with a Nice big handle, very comfortable.
    But WHY oh WHY are Svord the only company I've come across that make no attempt to sharpen their knives. Most knives come razor sharp, these are plain blunt.

    Good workhorse

    Cheap and cheerful with comfortably large handle and a practical blade design in an easily sharpenable carbon steel, and a decent open leather sheath. The blade did not come evenly sharpened, with some spots of glue on the blade, but somehow Svord gets away with this because of the feeling of a charmingly handmade knife.
