Nikki is an all-purpose knife, which can be used for a variety of tasks, including bush- craft, camping, hunting, etc. It has a traditional blade design with a nice wide belly (sweep). This type of blade is ideal for carving, cutting through tough material (e.g. rope, fabrics etc.). This design is also good for skinning and meat preparation by hunt- ers. Although this knife is reasonably small, it is mighty tough. The 4mm thick, full tang blade is made from high grade AUS-8 or D2 steels, which offer a good balance of toughness, edge sharpness and corrosion resistance.
