Quite possibly the only knife I will ever need for hunting. I actually own a pair of Havalon Piranta's but got this because of its dual purpose use. Cuts like a dream.
I implore any hunters and/or survivalist to have this with you.
Only thing I wish Havalon did was make a small pouch case for it so it could be side hip strapped like the smaller piranta knives. Some people have suggested a side clip hinge but I really don't think that's feasible because this knife is bigger (longer) than most standard knives
Very sturdy and well made. I was concerned that the saw blade would not be up to the task of removing elk legs and similar but it is much more sturdy that it appears in the pictures. I've used the Paranta blades before and they are excellent for skinning, caping and such. The Barracuda side which is the saw blade end of the knife is much thicker and sturdy. It comes with a nice case and organized storage of extra blades. It is a little larger and heavier than I was expecting but it is just right for the tasks I have in mind.
My husband had seen this knife on a wildlife hunting show and specifically requested it for Christmas. And also one for our son. He picked this particular one because of the dual blades that can be used for different purposes. It is a nice size (not too small) for a man's hands to use comfortably.
