I’m using VESUVIUS knife by S. Mitchell since few weeks, so it's time now for a review
Here the details of the Vesuvius project https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3688112802097990526#editor/target=post;postID=860905660964215342;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=10;src=postname
blade length 103mm
blade thickness 5,0mm
full flat grind, sporting a secondary bevelcamo G10 scales, with two swaged 10mm tubes and a single 8mm
Vesuvius is a compact, sturdy fixed blade, designed for survival, bushcraft and outdoor activities.
Here below some pics for comparison with several well-known knives
Vesuvius is comfortable in the hand, the G10 "Coca Cola bottle" shaped scales make him safe and easy to handling
Vesuvius works nicely both cutting and carving woods
It's easy making feathers with Vesuvius
Vesuvius tip is very robust, you may use it without any issue
Swaged tubes may be used to lash Vesuvius to a stick, for an emergency spear
Vesuvius is good on precise and fine works too, i.e. making traps
Here below how the trap realized with Vesuvius works
I like a lot the camo scales, anyway they make the knife hard to see if you lost the knife in the woods
All in all, VESUVIUS is a stunning knife for survivalist and bushcrafters, in my humble opinion. I'm really satisfied about this project. The maker, Mr. Stuart Mitchell from Sheffield (UK), made a stunning job, as usual. I thanks him a lot.
Enjoy your Bushcraft!!
