Great & useful little tool around the campsite. Nice & ‘friendly’ looking, rather than sporting any tactical looks.. it’s a lionsteel product, so the engineering, materials & fit & finish are really high end. I’ll probably make my own sheath for it, as the one it comes with makes the knife around 4 times as big..! It does the job, though, despite being a little bulky..
