Here´s my Custom S1 at work splitting firewood.
I only use handpower,no chopping or batoning.
Just pushcut with two hands.
One hand at the spine and the other at the handle.
The S1 is a very solid and heavy knife.
Still very easy to work with and this fulltang homemade balances at first finger!
I carried the S1 last summer,in the Swedish mountains.
It was used when cleaning Laketrouts,cutting a walking stick,batoning firewood and preparing food.
As the handle and guard are epoxied to the blade,it's also very easy to keep clean.
