This isn't just your average pocket knife. Sure, it may be compact and easy to carry around, but there's far more to it than that, and more than meets the eye. The 440 stainless steel blade is sharp enough to cut through anything you may encounter, but if you ever reach the point where it's not sharp enough, there's a sharpener right on the rear of the sheath. The sheath also has a fire starter on it, for those aforementioned times when you may have issues getting a fire going on a trip. The no-slip grip and cord cutter are also great added features to help you conquer the tasks at hand.
