purchased this knife a few years ago for camping, used it yesterday to field dress a deer (my GF hit it with her car...), it was sharp enough and perfectly sized for everything i needed it for, from slicing through the skin, abdominal wall and muscle tissue, with enough control to avoid the stomach (which was starting to bloat after 3 hours or so, when i got the deer home), chopped the pelvis with enough control to avoid puncturing the bladder and sliced through the ribs with ease.
as a note, i have used it to whittle, chop small branches for firewood, and for cleaning fish, and have never needed to sharpen it, although it isn't quite sharp enough to shave with, like it was when new (literally, i tested it and ended up with a bare patch on my arm...)
