This is a perfect addition to my son's survival kit. He has had it since Christmas and says he really likes it although he hasn't used it a lot he has messed around a little bit with it to make sure that it would hold well while out in the woods and he says he feels it would last a good while. He said it is not something that you would want to use on a daily basis for your job but perfect to have for camping, hiking or to use in a survival bag. It is not heavy so it can be carried around without putting any strain on you. The constructions seems to be good as well.
