I've just returned from a 4 month trek on the Appalachian Trail and I carried the Amazon Jungle Survivor with me the entire trip! I replaced the survival items along the way as I used them up, but this knife is incredible. I used it to split logs for firewood, cut rope, clean fish and a ton of other tasks. I wrapped the sheath in 550-paracord which seemed to hold it together better since it wasn't the highest quality sheath. But, it's still a great survival knife for a ridiculously low price, thanks BUDK!
I’ve been an avid collector of knives for 13 years and let me just say- I was thrilled from the moment I pulled this one from the box. Very well built and solid feel to it, I can’t wait to take it out for further testing to see what it can handle.
I have used this knife for chopping wood, it has a strong blade and it sharpens very well and easy with the included stone. It is also well balanced and can be thrown if needed. I would take this knife camping and trust it not to let me down. It comes with a fire striker, survival instruction manual and a loud whistle which would all come in handy in a survival situation. Good knife for the money.
I bought the Alaskan Survival Knife from Hibben and it is beautiful. Mine came with a sharp edge already, I only applied minor sharpening to make razor sharp. Sturdy, comfortable grip. Beautiful handle. I have not had a chance to field test yet but from playing with it in my garage it gets my approval for sure. I know this is a bit much but i feel like I could kill a grizzly with this knife. I’m sure I can’t but thats probably my lack of skill and not the knife’s awesomeness.
This is the best Survival knife I have come across...I am an avid knife collector...I have many knifes and I think this is my favorite one of all...I would say its a must have for hunting trips and camping/backpacking...if you want a knife to depend on..this is it!!!
