Thick and heavy... that’s what she said!

It's a great looking knife, but why pay full price when you can get it for less than $50? https://www.bespokepost.com/box/survivor

Wowzers, 4.7mm stock and 14oz! This is one beefy bushcrafter. Being forged definitely makes it unique among the competitors but this just seems crazy thick and heavy for what it is. I would need to know the edge geometry, degrees per side.

Is it just me or does this knife look small in the photo where someone is holding it? If I wanted a 4 inch fixed blade knife a 15 dollar morakniv would be my choice. Honestly this thing looks more like jewelry than a functional tool.

Funny. I tried to buy this knife from Coalatree several years ago. At that time, this knife was hand made by what I understand to be one guy (It might have been a couple of guys, but I think it was one) somewhere stateside. That handcrafted roughness was a real draw for me, and I really wanted one. But the knife was always sold out on the website and every time I checked, it was never available. So after a year or more of checking, I moved on. When I saw it come up here, I immediately checked to see if this was still hand forged by that guy. Of course, it’s not. How could it be in the quantities Drop would be selling? I’m assuming production has been moved offshore, most likely to China. While I’ve never been a USA products-first kind of guy and have no problem buying imported products as long as they’re good, just knowing what it originally was vs. what seems to be a mass produced replica of that product makes me not want to purchase this. The authenticity of that one craftsman pounding out imperfectly unique handmade knives was the big selling point for me. While the quality of this knife might be on par to that earlier product (I don’t know if it is or not), it’s just not the same. I seem to recall the price was somewhat less expensive at that time, too, though I could be wrong about that. So I’m mostly disappointed that I wasn’t able to buy that knife back when it was hand made in small batch quantities. Even if this knife is pretty good, I find it too expensive for a now mass produced version. Edit: I found a review of the original knife. It was made by one knife maker, Dylan Wanta, near Salt Lake City. Apparently, it was a very small production run. I saw something like 50 units mentioned. https://gearjunkie.com/coalatree-haswell-survival-knife After looking around at various reviews on the web, it seems this second version offered here also gets very good reviews, though it is still unclear to me where they are produced. So may be still worth considering.

Most of the entry level Moras are 3/4 tang, which won’t stand up to much heavy wood prep. If you anticipate batoning much wood, upgrade to a full tang knife. There are many choices of material and point of origin for much less than $110. I’d recommend the US made Kabar Mk I Navy knife, although you have to sand the coating off the spine to strike sparks with it. Condor makes lots of carbon steel knives in Costa Rica El Salvador [thanks, @Axeguy]. Their Hudson Bay camp knife is about as close to the 250 year old original design as you can get, for about $70. They make a mini version of it, too, but that makes me scratch my head over it’s intended use. Their “Swamp Romper” would be a much better choice, and would be a direct competitor to the Haswell for about half the cost. Condor use 1075 steel, which is super tough. What it lacks in edge holding it makes up for with ease of sharpening. The list goes on and on. Buck, Ontario, Case, etc.

Buy an ESEE, still 1095 steel but made in the good ol USA for less money. While youre at it pick up 2-3 Moras on top of the ESEE and itll still be less $.

The grind is clearly off in the last pic, which to me indicates lack of pride in workmanship and therefore likely lack of quality in general.

Would this be a good first knife to do stuff around the house and some camping here and there?

Yeah, Moras are good for an inexpensive, around the house knife. Also, stainless might be a better steel to start with

Another big recommendation for Mora, comfortable handle, light, sharp, replaceable with lunch money, a much better starting knife. And their stainless is Sandvik 12C27, not a crazy edge retaining steel but it's a well behaved budget steel.

Can you ship to Korea? I want to make a purchase, but I cannot purchase because of the delivery area.
