I think that`s going to take more energy. I don`t actually know for sure, though.I might want to try it out someday to make sure. I just like to have a big chunk of steel on my person than a little one, even if they do add a bit of extra weight. I`d rather use an axe or a saw to fall wood, especially the latter. You`re talking about “if,” and only if that fails on me, or the unlikely (for me, a non-LE/military civilian) situation in which I have no choice but to use a knife.

Damn, what a tough little bulldog of a knife.

I always was skeptical about small survival knives too, till I saw what Bear Grylls does with his small knife. I hate to admit to being influenced by one of those TV shows, but I really started to see the advantages of such a small but sturdy knife. When you use a branch as a baton you can hammer such a short but thick blade deep into wood and cut just as thick branches as you could by chopping with a big and heavy knife.

The Bravo has a black blade and the is a sharpened portion on the back of the blade as well. This makes the Bravo have a more versatile in the sense of having a secondary edge in case the the primary edge gets damaged. But it makes the Bravo less versatile in the sense that certain cutting/gripping tecniques are impossible because you cannot place your fingers on the back of the blade where it is sharpenned.

The Bravo model is the same except the knife has a black blade.

I dont mind having nylon or cordura sheaths but I hate velcro! Button snaps are the way to go. my wife sews button snaps on for me. : )

This is an excellent back-up knife. It seems it would make a good urban knife too. Have you tried to us it to pry anything?
