Used extensively while camping in mostly pine forest. Excellent for shaving wood for fires. Great in baton splitting wood. Sharp point for drilling into leather and pieces of wood. Recommend wearing on outside of pack as it can be a bit heavy on belt for long hikes.

a typical Cold steel product: functional, not fancy, good quality
for the price it was a fair deal
have NOT tested the blade on anything substantial but the factory edge is decent on paper and half inch sapling branches
balance to me is obviously point heavy, which is fine
though a heavy piece, could become a functional back woods day knife
Sheath is as expected for the price range: too bad no stone pocket
