|Here she is in her untested, unmolested glory. This knife will never look as good as this picture ever again.|
|Another pretty pic.|
|After tossing it into the snow to get it wet (thus simulating real survival conditions), I found a nice piece of wood to test the knife on.|
The knife went through the wood like it was butter. It only took about 5 light taps with another piece of wood (the baton) to split this piece of wood completely in half. If I were making a fire, this piece would be cut a couple more times into kindling and would be put to good use warming my fingers and lifting my spirits.
