Not a real Grohman
by: Canadian Soldier

The "belt knife" in the box that links you to amizon to buy the belt knife for 12 dollars is NOT a real or the original issued belt knife.
The real original issued "Jump Knife/Belt Knife/Russell Knife" is made by Grohman Knives out of Pictou County Nova Scotia Canada...if it doesn't bear the Grohman name then it's a cheap knock off...don't bet your life on it if it doesn't say Grohman.

Grohman Knife #4 survival
by: Jim Leach

You name it I have done it with this knife. It excels at feather sticks, batons like a dream carves well enough to make primitive traps and what ever else you may need, it holds an edge for extended trips in the field, and sharpens up nicely when needed. I especially like the shape of the handle which by design allows for a quick snap of the wrist at the last second of the stroke to quickly dispatch 2 / 3 inch saplings with a single blow ! High carbon stainless steel will not rust ! As I do a lot of canoeing and wet weather hunting this is extremely important to me. Add to this that it is a great knife for cleaning game..... What more could you want ? Grohman knives ,... As tough as the country it comes from !

Canadian Forces Jump Knife
by: Douglas

I've heard people stating that Grohmann knives are inferior to the Bark River Canadian series. I had a Grohmann Russell #3 (Cnd Forces Jump Knife) for over twenty years until somebody broke into my vehicle and stole it.

In that time, it was my EDC for many years of working in Parks Canada, and I once used it to cut a 1/2 inch sheet of plywood in half to cover a bear-broken window in a cabin (and used a ballpean hammer for a baton to do so). I also used it to break the pelvises on too many deer, antelope and caribou to count (batoning with whatever rock was nearby). It took all the abuse I could give it and always worked great.

I have since replaced my stolen knife, and have added a number of Grohmann knives to my collection (including the #4 Survival in carbon steel). I also have a number of other knives including Pumas, ESEE, Bark River, etc. All of my knives see regular duty. The big difference is that you can get a good Grohmann for about 1/3 the cost of a Bark River. If you lose it, it doesn't hurt quite so much!
