    I will State what all the Knife comes with. First of all, lets talk about the Knife.
    Personally, i had Yet to recieve anything good quality from Rothco. Today, when i got the knife, They Have finally changed my mind that they can indeed make a decent knife. The Saw on the back of the blade is yet to be tested, It is pouring down cold rain and everything is wet. However i will Test it first chance i get. Stainless steel and heavy as can be, The Handle really suprised me considering Rothco usually makes every handle out of Hard plastic. This handle is Top Grade Metal, And extremely durable. The blade is sharp and made of stainless Steel, which tells me it probably wont rust in my life time. It was so nice to see Rothco produce something durable. In a moment of “too good to be true.” i opened the handle lid and removed the contents trying to examine how the blade was secured to the handle, to my suprise, It was Held Firmly, Half tang into a metal Squarish hole that is about an inch and a half deep. The blade is not secured by a little rod with a nut like most survival knives, which means this knife may just endure The sharpening of a stick and other Under pressure tasks. I truly was pleased. Now lets move onto the sheath, which is Super sturdy plastic and the inside is metal. Its about 11 inches long and has two compartments on the inside separated by a piece of steel. One side you slide the Knife in, the other houses the Harpoon, Wire saw, and whistle like thing. Extremely sturdy and the leg straps and Snaps hold the knife in place and the sheath to your leg. I am wearing it right now, sitting down and it is firmyly secured to my leg. Built into the sheath is a pretty rough and good quality sharpening stone, which has a piece of velcro material covering it, all you have to do is pull it back to sharpen the knife. Pretty good For twenty dollars. This knife would sell for 35$ in wall mart. Now lets move onto the contents, with a quality rating of 1-5 with 5 being extremely good and 1 being really poor. I will include notes, lets Begin:

    Harpoon: 4 Note: it is made of stainless steel and does not bend and its a thick piece of steel. it isnt sharp anywhere but the point, which means i feel sorry for the fish. The rope that comes with it is pretty good for securing it to a stick, allowing you to extend your reach to a pack of wolves or the murky pond with a blue gill swimming in it.

    Wire Saw: 1 Note: Rothco exstensively hands these out with all their knives and they have no other use than snares or A pretty big paper clip. It comes with two metal rods with a curve in them for you to insert into the wire holes made for sawing a branch with. It sucks for lack of a better word and is not a saw at all. One end will break first try and i Guarantee that without a doubt. They all do, there is no teeth on it, its just has grooves like a paper clip.

    Compass: 3 Note: its fairly accurate, it tells me where north is and since i know where north is by the sun, it has proven me right. Fairly cheap and plastic, it is not glued on the inside of the lid, Mine fell out, but no matter, i put it back in the handle. It gets the job done and can easily be superglued or glued with a hot glue gun back into the lid.

    Pencil: 2 Note: Plastic Clear tube about like a steak n shake straw, only a little sturdier. it has 2 plastic circles with led protruding out, much like those Cheap mechanical pencils at the dollar store, that you pull the dull one out the front, insert it in the back and by doing so, you push a new one out the writing end. its about 3 inches long, maybe shorter, and it gets the job done for a message in a bottle.

    Scalpel: 5 Note: High quality surgical stainless steel and its disposible, sadly, there is nothing to attach it to. Probably good for shaving, or something, it is very very sharp. use Caution.

    Fishing Hooks/Sinkers/Line: 4 Note: you get 3 hooks, 3 Sinkers, And about 35ft of Fishing twine. Not tested, so i cant guarantee you they are sturdy.

    2 Bobby pins: 3 Note: can make as an improvised fishing hook!

    Water proof container/Rubber warsher around Lid: 5 Note: they are water proof and the container holds the gear that goes into the handle. the rubber washer is around the lid of the knife providing a seal against liquid.

    You Get 2 Medium sized bandaids.

    2 sowing needles

    1 piece of flint

    1 whistle like thing that makes noise.

    Overall the knifes total rating at a price that low is 5. I do Reccommend it to anyone looking for a knife of good quality at a bargain price. Hopefully if you buy it, you enjoy it like i have….

    Knife has held up Tremendously. THe saw works very well as does all of the Equipment. Good working man blade.

    I had intended, and still do, to use it for my wife’s little survival bag in case she gets stranded out in the middle of nowhere (it’s happened before!).

    First off, it’s an awesome idea, having a hand saw, fishing necessities, minor medical gear all wrapped into a sharp (que drums) package. But, unfortunately, I don’t like this particular knife set. It will work for my wife (who hates knives anyways), but I think the quality leaves a bit to be desired.

    I sharpened it immediately when I opened it, as it comes quite dull. Usually it takes me about an hour to decently sharpen a blade, but this one only took ten minutes. The steel is very soft and probably won’t hold an edge for long.

    Secondly, it’s very shoddy equipment. I mean, honestly, for around $20, what could I expect? But even nowadays the cheap stuff can be very high quality. Maybe I just got my hopes up too high…

    Anywho, all in all, it’s okay, not great. Worth $20? Absolutely. But the downside, it’s a $20 knife.
