    When I saw the Feather Stick, I ordered one immediately. It arrived the day before a backpacking trip with the Boy Scouts, so the newbie went along.
    Mine came with a green bead blasted micarta handle, but there are other options.

    I used it, and here’s what I found out.
    I like:

    The design: The Feather Stick looks, feels and handles like a Mora clipper.

    Moras are made in Sweden. But the original Scandinavian knife design probably goes back about 1000 years, to some Viking-type, who was looking for a useful, everyday tool. It wouldn’t be particularly useful in battle, or for raiding, pillaging and plundering, but everybody carried a small knife as part of their wardrobe. The knife would be used for everything.

    And so this knife design evolved to what it is today, and that’s what I like about it. You would be hard-pressed to find a more tested, practical blade/handle combination that can do just about everything.

    The handle fits my large hands very well, and is also good for smaller hands.

    Scandi grind: My favorite grind is the full convex. I like it so much, I have had several Scandi grinds re-ground into full convex.

    But for bushcraft, wood work and ease of sharpening, it is really hard to beat the Scandi. This becomes particularly important for the beginner. If he/she can’t keep the knife sharp, it soon becomes a chore to use it. With a Scandi grind, lay the bevel flat on the stone and it becomes the sharpening guide.

    Handle: IMHO, this handle design is one of the most ergonomic on the market. Everyone, from the smallest 11-year-olds to ham-handed people like me can use the handle safely.
    For a user handle, I want micarta. It’s bullet proof, and gets tacky when wet. I’ve used several micarta handles where they got immersed in blood, or covered with fish scales and slime. They were always safe to use. But I also really like wood handles, so pick your favorite.

    I love green, because of my Irish heritage, and I particularly like the bead blasted green. The texture and coloring remind me of the pilings on the Mississippi River.
    The Mora sheath, top needs to be modified for safe carry. The Feather Stick comes with a leather dangler.

    Steel: The Feather Stick comes in 01 tool steel.

    According to Speedy Metals Information: “O1 tool steel is a low alloy cold work tool steel that must be oil-quenched in heat treatment. O1 contains small amounts of manganese, tungsten, and chromium, giving O1 adequate toughness for normal tool and die uses. O1 has deep hardening properties with fine grain structure with unusual toughness.”

    I haven’t used 01 before, so I’ll continue to check it out. My initial testing shows the O1 holds an edge very well, and maintaining that edge shouldn’t be hard.

    Point: The Feather Stick has a drop point, with a hint of a clip to it. My favorite point is a clip with a swedge, but for an over-all knife, a drop point is stronger and more practical. (Here’s how to chose a knife point.)

    Blade length: IMHO, a four-inch blade is about perfect for an everyday carry or do-it-all knife. I want a shorter blade for carving and small game processing, and a longer blade for butchering and bushcraft. Decide what you’re most likely to use the knife for and choose accordingly.

    The Feather Stick, top, has a 1/8-inch thick blade, and the spine is sharpened at a 90-degree angle.

    Full Tang: Any rigid-blade knife that might be used as a survival knife (and that means all of them) should have a full tang. This option makes a stronger knife, and one that is less likely to break under extreme conditions.

    Spine: The spine is ground at 90-degree angles, like an ice skate, so it can be used to process tinder and scrape a ferrocerium rod. This could come in handy and save your sharp edge.

    Made in the USA: All Battle Horse Knives are made in Cambridge, Ohio. Call the company (like I did) and a pleasant person with a Midwestern accent answers. The employees make a living wage, pay local, state and federal taxes, and contribute to their community. Support American small business and keep jobs here!
    I didn’t like:

    …hmmm…still working on that one. The knife is just about perfect for someone who wants a Mora-style knife.

    OK, how about this – the “Feather Stick” doesn’t sound like a very, manly macho blade. Not compared to “Thug” or “Hoodlum” or the like. The knife doesn’t appear to be “tacticool”. It might not look very badass at the militia meeting, or clipped onto your body armor.

    So do you need a Feather Stick?

    Comparing a $15 Mora to a $150 Feather Stick is so apples and oranges. Somebody will (justifiably) argue that you can buy 10 Moras for the price of one Feather Stick.

    Sure. But will you take along multiple Moras into the wilderness on the off chance that one might fail? Or will you wear two or three inexpensive Moras in the off chance one might fail?

    Here’s my take: If you like a Mora-style knife, but want a beefier version with premium steel, then you need to invest in a Feather Stick. Remember, (the old mossy cliche′) the best survival knife is the one you have with you.

    If you’re going to rely on a Mora-style knife as possibly your only available survival knife, don’t you want the one with the best possible quality?

    You decide.
