The ergonomics are excellent. The handle is equipped with an elevation for your index finger. The length of the handle is very spacious. Also large hands have all the space they can wish for. The top of the blade has ridges where your thumb will find a good place. That way the knife is easier to steer. The back of the knife has a large hole for a lanyard. And the point functions as a glass breaker.
The handgrip has a hollow in the surface: the 'bow drill divot'. That is intended to make fire. You use a wooden stick and spin this arround quickly by the help of a bow. It needs a wooden base and some flammable material. It is the most basic way of making fire, but it can work amazingly well. In any case, you can conclude that with the Model 5 you are prepared for everything.
