Nice knife, but the front of the blade is too pointed & narrow for skinning (an important feature in a hunting knife.) If he could round it off a little, I'd be sold on it... :D

I am nonplussed. IMO, my Becker Combat/Utility 7 is a better all around field knife, was quite affordable, and actually came with a usable sheath.

That knife looks great although I am skeptical about such a fine tip on a utility/survival knife. no amount of hardening/metallurgist's skills will keep that tip intact during hard use. I'd need to dig, chop and scrape more than I'll need to drill holes (although a good feature).
As pointed out above, it is useless as a skinner.
The Tom Brown Tracker would be more efficient overall.
This knife looks more like a fighter than survival. Kinda reminds me of some J. Greco knives as well.

Pig is right, touch a hide with that and it will look like it was mauled by a boar. Don't doubt it's wicked sharp though.
