I love this little knife! I took one apart to see its innards and this is one serious, well made knife. Not some cheap crappy piece of tin you would get in a box of Cracker Jacks. This is a solid tool. Now, you aren’t going to be able to clear fields or pry an engine apart but normal to moderate heavy use shouldn’t be a problem at all. I wish I could post my photos but believe me it’s a serious knife.
