"Aragorn" from "The Lord of the Rings' would have carried this knife. It's big enough to do camp chores and nimble and sharp enough to dress game. And the little detail at the end of the handle sets perfectly in the hand if you hold down there for some light chopping.
I would be honored to send one of these with you on your next voyage.
Like all my knives I grind these from a piece of 5/32" American made 01 flat stock.01 takes and holds a great edge that will let you work all day without resharpening. These blades have a nice dropped point with plenty of belly and like all my knives come scary sharp. This knife was designed to handle just about any chore you can throw at it and is truly a "Bushcraft" knife. The blade does have a Quarter height convex grind, as opposed to a true Scandinavian or flat grind, this allows the user a great deal of edge control and ease of sharpening either on stones or with mouse pad and sand paper.
All of my knives are heat treated in a professional grade kiln, oil quenched, and tempered. All this means consistency of quality and performance.
I grind in the final bevels of all my knives by hand before I heat treat them, and after my blades have been heat treated and tempered the edge will not be touched by a machine again. The finished and polished edge is done, by hand, by me, in my living room while watching netflix until they're scary sharp.
