Well it finally arrived , ordered it on the 17th of February and it arrived here on the 8th of April. It is hand made and from the other side of the world , Nepal so I guess it is OK if it took some time traveling to get here. Customs in New York had it for almost a week before releasing it for the journey to Florida.
The blade is 8 1/4 inches long and has a 1/4 inch thickness on the back with a nice taper on the cutting side. The sheath is ballistic nylon and has a wood insert in it to house the knife and to keep from cutting the sheath. You can get them with a Water Buffalo hide for the sheath if you wanted to , just not with this model. This one is the Savior and from the Survival Series which are plain knives or working knives , not show pieces.
The handle is Water Buffalo horn and they carved finger groves in it along with a grove for the thumb on the left side. When you pick this knife up you know you have something in your hand. I sure feel sorry for any branches in the way of hanging the hammock or any bushes under it that would want to stick me.
The small knife would be good for cutting sting and small jobs. They did get a pretty good edge on it but I am going to hit it with a stone just to refine things a bit more.
They advise to apply a light coat of oil after use to keep the blade from rusting.
