Bought my Blur at Walmart. Loved my knife, but it was just recently stolen. I'm going to order another one for me and one for my son today. I' used it pretty hard. A few times I even split firewood into small pieces. I did this by pounding the blade through with another piece of wood. You could see where it passed through on the DLC on the blade, but it did not scratch it, nor did it remove it. It just made one spot slightly shiner than the rest, but the coating was essentially unharmed. I cut wire, tin cans, wood, leather, paper, very tough heavy duty boxes, and just about everything else with it. It kept a super sharp edge. All I did was strop it occasionally and once, or twice k used a very fine ceramic stone on it. It was my daily carry knife. And it had become a companion of sorts. I sort of feel out of place, or something without it. I can't wait until the new ones arrive.

Gerber used to make good knives. This particular one is a FAIL. Do not waste your money on any Gerber paraframe knife. This knife gets consistently bad reviews online from casual to hardcore knife users. Spend at least $25 on a better quality knife. I now prefer Kershaw knives for everyday use.

This is probably the most beautiful knife that I own. I have a leather sheath that I carry it in. From the factory, it was razor sharp, the blade opening is so smooth, and the quality of the stag and fit of the bolsters is amazing. The liner lock holds the blade very securly and has no play whatsoever.

I call it my "Sunday Go To Meeting Knife" I usually only carry it whan I am going to more formal functions i.e. Church, Boy Scout Court of Honors etc.. I was hesitant to put much hard use on it but as is always the case, most of the time I am the only one with a pocket knife available. While it hasn't been used on camping or fishing trips, it has been used for so many other things around the house or on outings.

I have always been a fan of Case Knives and the Stag Trapper Lock is a show stopper.

Not much that I can add to the previous reviews. This tool is amazing. It is really not a machete in the normal sense, because the blade is too thick for slashing through light foliage. But it will do just about anything else. From the comfortable grip all the way to the sharpened square tip, this thing is a work horse. It chops better than a hatchet because it has such a long area to contact the wood. I have used it as a pull knife to shape wood for camp gadgets, shelters, etc.. It is so beefy that it requires little effort when chopping or trimming wood. I love the sheath, it is so versatile I can hang it from my belt, or use some paracord to attach it to the molle webbing on my backpack I have seen reviews that said that the SP-8 could not be withdrawn from the sheath without unsnapping all of the snaps, but the sheath that came with mine may have been slightly redesigned by moving the rivet near the top closer to the edge, I only have to unsnap the top strap, and tilt the SP-8 slightly to remove it from the sheath.

It goes with me on all of my campouts with my son's Boy Scout troop. It holds and edge very well, and is easy to resharpen. I have to keep it hidden away or all of the other campers will be trying to borrow it

I would have given the SP-8 all 10s, but, as stated in other reviews, the sawback leaves some to be desired, but it will do in a pinch if no other saw is available.

Overall, you can't go wrong with this survival tool, especially for the price. I find myself reaching for this almost exclusively while doing any outdoor chores.

Great job Ontario Knives

Steel Will is new to the market for 2015 and the Gekko 1500 is one of their premium folding knives with the idea of being used as a utility/camp/bushcraft knife. It has great ergos and a great attention to detail. If you are looking for a pocket knife that will really excel out in the woods, the Gekko 1500 you be a great option.

This is one of the first Puma Knives I have really had a chance to get my hands on and use extensively. I was not expecting alot from the 440A steel, but they did a good heat treat on this blade and it held an edge like a good AUS-8. The Rest of the knife works well for a hunting utility knife. I would only recommend with the bone handle version if you are going to display the knife. The micarta version will be much better for field use with its extra traction.
