Got one of these coming Friday. If you see this could you give me some long-term feedback? Did you ever modify or change the scales?

Nice review, made me buy this knife. I want to know what machete was that you mentioned to be paired with this great knife?

I bought an Esee 5 but returned it. It was a tank and at .25" thick, too much knife for my needs. The Brakimo seams to be a slightly thinner, lighter E5. I like the blade profile better in a defensive situation as well. Win win.

i like how it has a more acute tip then the bob has a more tactical bad ass look instead of a butter knife look that some bushcraft knives have .just my opinion .

Hey Ben, have you replaced the scales or added liners yet? If so it sure would be cool to see an updated vid on the difference and how you went about doing yours. I love this knife and am considering selling some stuff to buy a $150.00 range bushcraft knife, I've always stayed in the under $100.00 range, not by choice either LOL.
Anyways I'm considering the Battle Horse Feather Stick, The Brakimo, Lt Weight Hevi Bushcrafter or Benchmade Bushcrafter…..I can't throw that much money towards a knife everyday so for me I really gotta be dead set on the purchase, read up watched up on every review possible.

when you get new scales for it show us a picture I would be interested because I have the tops brakimo to and I would like to get new scales or let us know where you got them from

Very nice blade. Good addition for sure to a machete. Can certainly stand on its own too. Nice review Ben. Thank you.

If the video is good enough to watch to the end, it deserves a thumbs up. Nice knife. Thank you for the video, Ben

Very much appreciate the mention of the handle scales — & that Chris thought so too. That was the one hesitation I had with this knife. Sounds like it's still very much worthwhile, but must also budget for handle scale & sheath mod (to accommodate thicker scales). Thanks man.

Man, why is working on wood with a knife (and watching people do it) so relaxing? I swear, I worked on a small slingshot fork last month with my humble old Schrade Nitro (BTW, thanks for the notes on notches, Ben, those really helped) and it was like two days of vacation in three hours.

The knife is nice, looks robust and easy to maintain – cheers to 1095! Agree that the handle could have a better anatomical design, though, that looks like it can hurt in a regular grip. Have you tried holding it in any different ways?

I like how you went around that knot when feather sticking. Cool knife and review. I agree upgrade the sheath

the knife 🔪 looks just like knives of alaska camp knife design and my knife as same sharpness made of d2 steel

I love the look of these (Tops) knives, but i hate 1095. I don't wanna worry about having to always wipe down and oil a knife. Got a esee 4 in stainless, love it, but if tops ever makes stainless steel knives then ill move to tops knives from esee
