Better than expected
I was very leery of this knife only because of the Bear Grylls name stamped all over it. I'm a fan of ol' BG, but don't like celebrity endorsed products. That being said...
This knife is great. Feels solid, nice balance, and the blade is thick. It seems like a bit much with all the "extras", but the whistle is loud and no bigger than a knot would be on the rope. The hammer head has been pretty sturdy so far (I'm not building with it and try not to use it unless necessary). The sharpener is decent at home, but phenomenal to have out in the woods. The 'firestarter' throws big sparks. The survival guide could help you signal for help & lays out pretty standard survival tips, but could be useful to a novice.
My only issue is the sheath. It would be fine without the canvas backing. The plastic itself is awesome, it locks the knife in without worry, no need to strap it in. Unfortunately, it does not have any way to attach it to a belt or even a clip. When you unstrap it to get to the sharpener, you can see how unnecessary the canvas is aside from providing belt loops (which are too small anyway)

After hearing the mixed reviews about this knife when it first came out I was hesitant about buying one. But man this is an awesome knife. Nice and sturdy feeling. It really does feel like a survival knife should feel like. I really like the rubberized handle on it too. Really grippy. The whistle is loud and the fire steel on it works great. My only complaint is it's not that sharp out of the box. But a little time on the stone can take care of that. If you're in the market for a survival knife i'd definitely recommend this one.

Well thought knife
Although I don't like Bear Grylls, This knife is a well thought knife. The blade feels like it could take tons of abuse, not a huge fan of the serrated edge, but it is short enough that it doesn't get in the way when using the straight one. The fire starter was a nice add on, along with the sharpening diamond plate in the back of the sheath. The rubber grip might not appeal to the traditional people, but it is very comfortable.
The sheath was designed so that you can put the knife in, in either direction, so if you are a lefty and like to carry it on the left, all you have to do is turn the knife and the handle is facing the right direction for a lefty draw. The whistle is pretty powerful, and very small. Over all a very well thought knife with great features that can come in handy. The only negative comment I have about this knife is that it has "Bear Grylls" written all over it... If they would make the same knife without the bear grylls stuff, they would sell more of them ;)

this knife is great. its everything i expected and hoped for in a knife. its durable and tough like a true survival knife should be. the only glitch i have is the belt loops, they are too small. but i have ways to imprevise and resolve that problem. im very pleased with this knife and thank my wife for getting it for me.

I heard they were having problems with the handle, but I believe that was fixed which would make this version 2. I have hammered with mine several times and have not cracked the handle. Hope this helps because this is really a very nice knife to have.
I believe this is a overall good anything knife! Great for camping, hunting, backpacking etc. I have used mine when we go camping and backpacking. It has a fire starter, sharpener, whistle and more to help you in any situation. With the orange color, it makes it easier to see or to be seen. I will not go out in the woods without it!

It's a very nice knife to have handy, but as for a pure hunting knife, it's OK. I think there are much better options out there with non-serrated blades & gutting hooks.
Although if you want, you can tie this one to a big stick and go primal spear hunting!
