I have a billion knives. The vast majority of which have about zero practicality. But i really like all kind of blades and have a collection of gimmicks and bad designs. That i love, despite that they are virtually good for absolutely nothing, in realistic terms. regardless of whether i actually use them. In reality and most obvious to most of the people here im sure. Is that quality blades are designed to preform very specific tasks. Out of necessity. Because of consequences rendered by the process involved in balancing the steel or gearing it to posses a particular "hardness"/"toughness ratio. (though it would be nice to have the universal blade. No such thing actually exists in reality.) This is my go to knife when i need a bottle opener. Its also a good knife to use as a can opener. And it also has a compass just in case i cant find my way to the bathroom for whatever reason LOL Finely crafted jimping covering nearly the entire spine. For that extra touch of mind boggling uselessness. ..Just kidding, what self respecting "survivalist" dosnt own a Rambo stile knife Anyway, The TBS...... I decided whimsically. That i would purchase this blade. I dont use folding knifes very often. It K720 Carbon Toolsteel. has a moderately thick spine.
