What Freebooter says:
We’d like to say the final Overwatch design you see today was a result of years of development, truth is, we came up with the design in about twenty minutes. There’s really nothing fancy about a good survival knife. A good survival knife only needs a blade long enough with a strong spine for battening, thick and hardened for prying, a solid, comfortable grip, a just-right drop point and a couple of well placed holes (just in case you find yourself using it as the tip of a spear to kill a grizzly), and most importantly, an easy to sharpen cutting edge for skinning/processing game. That’s it. No serrated edges. No blood grooves, recurves, hard angles, titanium or other exotic steels. Nothing fancy.
Quinn Knives' take:
The Overwatch is our personal Freebooter favourite and while Chris claims it only took 'twenty minutes' to come up with the design, you can tell it's built upon years of using knives in real world survival situations. We also like that the Overwatch's sheath hangs the knife lower than 'normal', meaning it's easy to access when you have a jacket or gear on.
