Great Video review if you ever get the chance i would love to see a review of the the Ka-Bar USN = United States Navy Kraton Handled Straight Edge Mark 1 Knife
And how it holds up for bushcrafting
Thank you keep up the great work guys

Ranger Jon Outdoors says:

What do you think guys!? This M5 or M4 for general outdoor/camp use to light survival applications? I’m a big fan of m390 but it’s harder to sharpen in the field, and I like the size and ergos of the m5. Just curious which you think is better all around. Rock on!

Randall Kelley says:

That was a hedge hog? Right, very cute! Lets have dinner, like Bear Grylls

Hi Dude says:

Have you guys reviewed the el cheta. If you haven’t you should

Chang 1worker says:

Greeting from Taiwan.

You guys are nice people and your videos are very practical and informative.

I have noticed that on your other video, you wear “Black Banana ” T shirt written in Mandarin .
Another video, “esame oil bottle”
while cooking written in Mandarin.

And this one 0:55 you have a novice monk (Budhist)in the back.

So i decide to leave a message to show my support.

Keep up the good work and be careful not to get hurt again you two.

miky9757 says:

where are they from? Canada? Sweden?

simon says:

Hi guys really thinking about getting this blade. Is it stainless or semi stainless steel. There is not a lot of info on the steel

Gaz Pyrotechnics says:

I have this knife with G10 and no blade coatings. I have used and abused it for about 7 month and it’s never let me down. For me it has the most comfortable grip. It’s as tough as they come and I find it holds an edge very well and it’s easy to keep sharp. It’s an awesome knife. Btw I use my knife mainly on oak, cherry, apple and pear woods. I’ve also used it in a bushcraft setting3 or 4 times chopping fire wood, cutting wood for shelters and A-frames for sleeping of the ground. It’s brilliant.

hell raiser says:

nice to see Liam Gallagher here

Mitchell Cook says:

Thanks for the awesome review of this knife. I just got the Lionsteel T5 uncoated to replace my Esee 5 that was stolen!

StillTimeless says:

Hey guys! Is the rounded spine of the knife sharp enough on the edges to make sparks with a firesteel like it is on the Lionsteel M4? And if not; is it possible to sharpen it without loosing the strength of the blade? Keep up the good work; love your videos!! Cheers!

Jesse Schmidt says:

Mickey B how did you get in enemy territory?!!!

Sean B says:

Or you could just bring a standard issue survival kit with you, including matches

Michael Smith says:

WTF would these faggots Know about tactical, what a joke

Jonathan Pearson says:
