Great knife

This is a very good knife and a good value. Nice heft, sturdy, full tang construction. Tang is nearly 3/16" thick. Wood grips look great and fit the hand well. Sheath is also sturdy, good looking, sewn and riveted, real leather and very well fitted to blade. Only 2 small nitpicks: backbone of tang had very minor discolored spots, and also as a southpaw I haven't found a natural comfortable way to draw the knife from its sheath. That said, this is still one of my top 3 favorite sheath knives, the others being a Remington Drop point and a Genuine Ontario brand Air Force survival knife purchased at a PX in the 1980s. I'm very pleased with this Bushmaster. Carbon steel blades are not rustproof, to take good care of yours with a light film of Rem Oil, mineral oil, or any light oil and it will only get better with age.

I love it

When received this knife, it had some rust on the spine of the blade. NO BIG THING. I cleaned it good and gun blued it. Rust gone. This knife is a perfect size for any bush craft task. SHARP, SHARP, SHARP right out of the box. The sheath had a crack in the leather strap that goes around the sheath. No Problem. I soaked it in mink oil for about an hour. Problem solved. All in all, I love it and yes I would recommend it to my friends. I love the entire knife, Stoutness of the Blade all the way to the wooden scales. A beautiful knife that will last me the rest of my life.

Sent somewhat damaged

Overall seems like a good knife for it’s purposes but it was sent to me with some corrosion around the tang and blade. Also some chips in the blade. I knew the price was too good to be true.

Great value

Great! I am well satisfied with my purchase that I have ordered 2 more for friends. Would have loved to have had this blade during military career.

Nice heavy duty knife

The knife came in just a bit dull but a couple of passes on the wet stone, it was razor sharp. The sheath is very good quality. Will be using it for some yard work tomorrow.

fair deal

the knife is ok, i'm using it in my shop. it takes an edge well, the real deal is the sheath. I've been looking for a good sheath for my custom hunting knife and this one is perfect, well made, good quality. i'm thinking of buying another one for a handmade knife I have. money well spent.

Great Knife Great Price

I bought this as camping utility knife. I am pleased with the weight of the full tang blade bit should make a great all around the camp knife. I took the time to sharpen it on my stone and it has a razor sharp edge. I used it s couple times around the garage and it seems to hold a decent edge. I can’t wait to get to the woods and put it to the test.

YouTube review coming soon

I’ve used this knife for about a week now. Let me start with it’s durability. I’ve used this to baton wood for a fire and it’s takes the beating with ease. Not even a scratch or ding on the back edge of the knife. Also the back edge of this blade is very functional for using a fire steel. The sharpness of the blade out of the box I would call a 8.5/10. I like my blades very sharp but nothing a little honing from a wet stone won’t fix. I’ve also used this knife to make feather sticks which it does ok with. I’ve had other knives produce better feathers but this does fine, I’m just a little picky with my feathers. The handle of this knife is beautiful but just a bit slick, but extremely comfortable in the hand. I have bigger hands and the thickness feels right. You may have a bit of getting use to with smaller hands. The sheath is out of this world in quality and I agree with other people that the sheath is worth the money alone. I’ve used the sheath in a cross draw setup with the Velcro and it’s is very comfortable and doesn’t get in the way. I’ve also tried a same side draw and am not a fan of how that sits. Overall this is a great knife and I see myself using for a long time. Very satisfied with my purchase.
