Bratstvo Ohrid Knife
by: Anonymous

Bratstvo is a factory for kitchen accessories. The factory is situated in Ohrid, Macedonia. Not Serbia as I read in some of the comments. This knife was made in the 80's right after the Rambo movie. It has never been used in the Army. The quality of the knife as a whole is good (for that sorts of knives). As a child I always wanted to buy this knife but my parents thought otherwise.

Survival Knife
by: Pablo Escamilla

Hi Bruno, I am from Mexico City and I have a knife like this, 25 years ago I sold them several of them in flea market. (Las vias, en la Raza, Ciudad de Mèxico).
This knife is not from any country army.

See you.

use of such ablade
by: Shaykh Idris

To use this street-fighting blade in the traditional Srpski style, hold in fist with blade forward & out from body. After that,it gets messy. Hollow handle: a pretty toy.

Survival Knife Feedback
by: Dustin

The reference I was able to find for Bratstvo is a Serbian clan (extended family) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serb_clans#Clan_.28bratstvo.29

440 likely references the type of steel the knife is made of - 440 Carbon steel

In my opinion, these "survival" knives that have hollow handles are inherently weak in design, as they do not have a full tang - the metal stops at the hilt (or shortly thereafter) to accomodate the hollow handle. They just don't hold up to much abuse that you might deal out when in the bush. In addition, the small space that is afforded in teh handle usually doesn't hold much - you would be better off with an emergency pack made up in a small can or something that you just keep in your pocket.

I have seen similar designes to this knife for may years [http://www.knife-depot.com/knife-128843.html ~ $16] - they look cool, and seem fuctional, but suffer when abused - I wouldn't choose to rely on it in a survival situation, but it's certainly better than bare hands!
