The S.K. Arctic knife is part of a larger Les Stroud line of gear from Camillus. These Survivorman-inspired items include things like first aid kits, machetes and even a hatchet. Straight from the package, this knife boasts one of the best factory sharpening jobs I have ever seen. The knife felt a bit heavy, but in a good way—like it had strength to it. The drop point blade is made from titanium-bonded 440 stainless steel, with a black non-stick coating. It worked great for carving and slicing tasks; though with its tapered spine, it isn't as well suited for baton work or heavy chores. There is also a rounded notch on the blade's spine that can be used to scrape sparks from the ferrocerium rod accessory that's stored in the sheath. This notch is handy for fire starting, but it also represents a weakened spot in the steel. The handle is an interesting amalgam of plastic, soft, black textured rubber, and a metal I couldn't identify. There is triangular lanyard hole and an angled "waffle-head" hammer pommel. The generous size of the handle works well for larger hands and when wearing gloves. For added grip, there is a yellow rubber insert behind the finger guard.
