I bought one last year. I used it to field dress a deer and it worked well. I'm not wild about the shape of the main blade. It has a little to much belly for my taste. I may have it reground slightly. The construction quality is good as is the feel and shape of the handle. The swing mechanism works well. The knife came very sharp from the factory. The shealth is functional but nothing fancy. The gutting blade works well and makes it very easy to open up the abdomen without fear of cutting the guts. It is a little work to get it cleaned up since you get blood and guts in the joint and handle. In years past, I've used a regular fixed blade (Fallkniven H1). I also like the orange handle on the Swing Blade. It makes it easy to find if you set it down on the ground.

Duh!
It was intended as a joke, for those of us with a sense of humor.
