When we go for outdoor, we will try carry less and less weight. 187g is the total weight for full set knife including knife, kydex sheath, para-cord, firestarter! We try to make the knife simple, strong, and multifunction. We use rivet to assemble the blade instead of screw and nut. It will be strong and simple. We make the handle part hollow to get the weight less and it is also easy to tie up the knife with a stick to get the handle longer. We choose a large firestarter with a large handle, it will be more easy start the fire.
