excellent bushcraft fire knife
This knife is great at a general fire making chores. feathersticks, kindling making, firesteel striking, making nest materials, batoning and can even be used with flint to spark a fire. It is one of the best fire knives on the market. It does a myriad of other chores as well. Viking is a well suited name for this knife and it's handle is very naturally ergonomic. The sheath can be tucked under belt or lashed ranger style or upright lashed in a belt loop. I really love this knife and have made it a permanent EDC item. Triple laminated carbon 1095 steel is perfectly tempered and easily maintained by stropping or use of a fine or medium grit stone. It maintains an excellent and durable edge and is easy to sharpen due to the true scandi bevel edge. I highly recommend this knife. To add cord or rope cutting ability use a medium to coarse stone when sharpening. It must be oiled to keep rust from forming. I use olive oil, which is perfect when I use it to process meat or food. Again, for me it is a must carry item, it will even open cans.
