Impressed
by: Anonymous

I have one and despite having to sharpen it I am pleasantly suprised at the rugged toughness of this knife I have hacked through hardwood and the edge retention was 10 out of 10. Ignore the full tang hype its simply if the knife is strong enough regardless of the design its fit for purpose I can stand on this knife when placed against a tree at 45 degrees and I weigh about 140 pounds I dont need a knife stronger than that and im yet to meet anyone that does

Chinese copies
by: Neruda

It is important to be aware of the difference in quality between the original Aitor jungle kings made in Spain, and Chinese imitations. I like Aitor knives - my survival knives include the Aitor oso blanco and oso negro - although I share misgivings about the hollow handle on the Junge Kings.
Judging by the price, the publicity accompanying this page is for a Chinese "jungle king". This is NOT a knife I would recommend.

Hollow handled knives?
by: Anonymous

I noticed you had one of those economy hollow handled knives? I won't use any of the cheap hollow handled survival knives cause they break way to easy when you start pounding on them. Thats because either they have a plastic handle or they are welded at the handle-blade junction which becomes a weak point for a survival knife! If you must have a hollow handled knife for your survival knife then save up the money and get one which will last and can take the abuse? I have one which won't break because it's an integral, machined out of one solid piece of A2 steel it's called a Mk VI and is made by Chris Reeves! He makes several different hollow handled integral survival type knives which are intended for just that purpose. If your interested in a knife which won't fall apart on you when you need it most then check out this website www.chrisreeve.com. The knives will cost you a bit more, but they are worth it especially if your life is depending on it in a survival situation!

Jungle Farce Knife
by: John

Dude your life is worth more than that cheap knife.
Keep the survival items and get a knife made out of quality steel that has a full tang. That hollow handle could break on you at the most inopportune
time. Not trying to offend you, just trying to point out the problem with a hollow handle knife and like I said your life is worth a lot more and a
real life survival situation you want all the advantages you can get not more problems.
