    Mine came in Friday, but I was hunting since Thursday afternoon so I didn't get to use it. Initial impressions were good. Definitely more sturdy than I imagined. Also more weight forward than I expected. I'm gonna assume that's a good thing. Will definitely allow a smaller blade to pack a bit more punch. The handle is a little thin for my tastes so depending on how I feel after using it, I might add an epoxy twine wrap to thicken it up some.

    Oh and were the libertards only for the clever? I was kinda looking forward to having one to show off lol.

    You can cut the sheath in half, put flex seal on it and use it as a John boat

    I tried it with a carabiner clip so I didn’t have to unbelted, but it hung like a dong too long and swung around too much.

    I’ve been using mine all week clearing brush and limbs. Today I debarked a future hiking staff.

    I put my hands on mine last night finally. I stalked the kitchen and living room looking for something worthy to cut. I'm resisting the temptation to use it outside, because I declared it a kitchen/food prep knife.
    But....unless I come up with another deer, or a roast I want to cut up...it may have to go with me on a trip around the farm...

    Well I can't say I've lopped any coconuts yet, but this does a fine job removing the feet off a pheasant.
