This blade is the Wilderness King. If you like big blades this is at the top of the list.

GOOD- high quality, great kydex sheath, tough, heavy making it good for chopping, great handle ergos for chopping.

BAD- it is pricy, 33oz. with the sheath is heavy to trek around with, not comfortable when doing extended cutting or carving tasks, best suited for chopping and batoning.

Just bought one as a "heavy machete" for backyard cleanup, anticipate single cuts through green and woody material up to 1/2" in conjunction with chainsaw

Great knife except that it carries like a popcorn machine. Needs a ballistic nylon sheath or leather and it would be perfect. Liked. Would you rather have the Esee or the Big BK from Ka-Bar? I'm going to buy one in the next day or so and it's came down to these 2.

Just bought this. Can't wait to get it. I got it to 'replace' my Terävä Skrama. I wanted something heavier and longer for batonning and chopping. Going to pair it with a Bark River (Either a Canadian Special 3v, Kephart 5 4V, or Bush Seax) and a silky saw. I'll be able to do anything.

I drilled two holes up close to the top edge of the shieth and ran a couple paracord loops and made a bushcraft style dangler, works awesome for me and shaved off that 4 ounces you're talking about. I also filed my own finger choil into it so a guy can really choke up on it for doing some of that "little knife" stuff.

To anyone thinking of buying one of these I would suggest taking a look at a skrama bush knife first. About a 3rd of the price with equivalent or better carbon steel and the option to go stainless and has a much more practical design. With various sheath options too. Just worthwhile having a look at.

I own one and love its performance for shelter making, as well as for camp chores. It batons easily, even through knots. Back it up with a 3" Essee and you're good to go.

Say Heah Aaron, Just remember, "Once a King, always a King, Once a K(N)ight is enough, Dilly, Dilly, heh heh heh.,,.p
