Good, not great
OK Bear Grylls probably wouldn't be seen dead with this knife, but then again he has his own range of knives and they cost a lot more than this one! So if it's just for the occasional use or emergencies, then this knife is a reasonable buy for the money. If you're looking to survive by yourself in a rainforest for a few months, then try spending a bit more money!
Pros: Cheap
Cons: Average quality
Would recommend: Yes

Absolutely shocking.
Dreadful. I opened and them returned it on the same day, it was rubbish. However, it was cheap, so what could I expect? M&G refunded my money immediately, thanks.
Pros: It was cheap.
Cons: none
Would recommend: No

Reasonable for the money
OK, this might not be a top quality knife, but then again for the price paid I think it represents pretty good value for money. It's a good bit of kit to keep in the bottom of your rucksack in case you should find yourself in a survival situation.
Pros: Good value for money, Interesting kit, Lots of survival bits n pieces
Cons: Not highest quality knife
Would recommend: Yes

Could've been better
The knife has no tang; the pin through the crossguard (visible in the photograph) holds the end of the blade in place. The equipment in the handle offsets the missing weight to some extent. The whetstone was apparently attached to the sheath with superglue, with predictable results; mine had already fallen off by the time it arrived.
Pros: Decent survival kit
Cons: Knife feels unreliable
Would recommend: No
