The #413 Kubben is a fine product with shortcomings. The handle is rough. This is intentional, since GB uses the stouter and grooved maul handle on the #413. There is an easy fix with sandpaper and linseed oil. The sheath is flimsy and not secure enough for belt carry. Thicker leather with two snaps would be a great improvement. I like it, however, it is not the superlative hand tool for the price.

Fantastic little tool. Comes sharp and ready to work right out of the box. I haven't had a chance to take it camping, as that is what I bought it for. But I have used it for to break up fire logs for kindling. Very stout and comfortable in the hand.
