It's funny - I admire and respect the heck out of the Randall name, but I can never find a knife of theirs that I personally like.

Chopping off heads.

In our civilian world, it makes a great survival tool - combo knife/hatchet, with a small utility-knife (karda) and a sharpening steel/flint-striker (chakmak) in the sheath.
