    What is the original function of this blade design?
    Is it primarily a woods tool that can flex into a tactical role?
    It reminds me of Persia meets Alamo, in regards to its shape.
    Is the swedge a true false edge? Is that to ease penetration when say pig hunting for instance?
    Is looks like it'd fit a similar role to that of a bk7. But it has more that shape of a bk5 (I'm a Becker guy).

    Thanks for your comment! This knife was designed for a Marine and the intent was primarily a combat utility knife. It serves well in the woods also, and would certainly make a good pig sticker. That is exactly what the false edge is for.
    The false edge is false, but ground thin enough that it could be sharpened if you so desire.

    Thanks again!
