The Silent Hero will definitely hold up to hard use..There is a lanyard hole in the handle along with another in the finger guard. This is meant to allow the user to add a safety cord in order to improve the grip on the handle, which already allows for a solid grip. The finger-guard hole can also be used to assist in lashing to a spear when the situation warrants it.There is a finger choil up into the blade to give you the ability to choke up and execute precise, fine cuts. The drop point design makes this knife great for slicing and gives the tip extra strength. This knife will be a great knife for bushcraft, survival, and tactical purposes.The black leather sheath is durable and looks great paired with this knife. The Silent Hero is held in place with a single snap loop that curls around the finger guard. It is large enough that it can be used to chop but is also still small enough to complete most of the tasks you can do or want to do with a smaller knife.
