ok guys i am pretty ignorant when it comes to knives. this knife was given to me by my father and i dont know much about it. i took it camping last year and used it to skin some sticks for roasting marshmellows...lol that is the only time i used it and really dont have much use for a large knife. if any one could use this let me know. i would trade it for mags, ammo, parts, etc. not sure what it would be worth in trade.
