Every outdoorsman needs a utility blade for tasks around camp and on the trail, whether it be for making kindling, cutting rope, or opening a bag of trail mix. The Spine Fixed Blade brings exactly what is needed - a sturdy, full tang blade, rubberized grip for all weather conditions, and rugged glass-filled nylon sheath for safe storage and transport.
The Spine is a fixed blade for the weekend warrior camper or hiker - it is approachable in design, color, and intent. Meant to outfit the amateur outdoorsman with a sturdy and functional blade, the Spine delivers with an easy-to-operate design that mounts to the lumbar strap of a backpack for convenience.
I love the knife, nice handle and blade length, great weight. The shape of the handle is comfortable and feels great to hold. Blade length is perfect and the blade comes sharp and holds and edge well. Cuts amazingly.
My only complain is in the handle material and the sheath. The rubber handle just feels...'sticky'. It attracts all sort of debris. Lint, dirt, wood shavings, grass, everything seems to 'stick' to the handle. This would be much better with G-10 scales or just textured hardened rubber or glass fiber filled nylon scales would work just was well.
Sheath works, could have been better, kind of feels like an afterthought.
