    That's a nice looking knife. They make some fine stuff but kinda pricey for me. By the way, if that's a shipping pallet that's one huge knife.

    Well. yesterday I put the Bush Camp knife to a little test, first in the kitchen then outdoors. I used the knife to prep some veggies for some chili and it worked like a premium chef's knife. I had stropped it to a razor's edge and it sliced and minced flawlessly.

    I was surprised at how the knife handled. I choked up on the choil and carved a nice pothook and the carved point was easy with the edge being so sharp. The handle is easy on the hands too. It makes great feather sticks and the last pic is a baggie of Sabal Palm frond shavings. The spine is ground to a sharp ninety degree and I used it to smooth the point and it makes good sparks with a ferro rod (LMF).

    I am very pleased with this knife and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good inexpensive and high quality GP camp knife. Thanx for looking..

    Looks good!
    Oh, and the knife does too...
    When all else fails, read the directions, and beware the Chihuahuacabra!
