"Excellent collectable which is it's primary reason for existence, but in a Youtube video it seemed to chop through 3" logs more like an axe than a knife. The person doing the test did mention that he was holding the knife with index finger over the guard and choking up on the Choil to avoid stressing the handle as he suspects that it uses a short stub tang: I used a strong magnet and it showed that the tang goes about half way up the handle to the Expendables Logo, a very strong light showed that the part of the handle above the logo is hollow, so how durable the handle might be for heavy work is " debatable ", but in the Youtube review the handle & guard didn't loosen up, Micarta is quite strong so it might not be a problem. The blade is impressive and forward balanced, very sharp out of the box, the false edge bevel is not sharpened as it would be in a true fighting Bowie, but this may because of different laws in different places about double edged blades that the maker wanted to avoid issues. The scabbard very tight where the brass strip is wider than the opening of the scabbard, but if one is careful one can force it in, and it is now not an issue." - Jean (5/5)
