I have carried this knife around many walking trips in Australia, often replacing my venerable Swiss Army Knife. By and large it has been rather more knife than I needed, but I rarely need a knife in Australia anyhow. When my wife and I went to Switzerland for two months walking over some of the Alpine Pass routes in 2009, I threw this knife into my kit at the last moment.
I was very glad I took it, as it got used nearly every day. No, not for felling trees or killing and skinning huge animals, but for far more practical uses like cutting bread, cheese, and meat for our meals.
