Whilst doing a quick review of the budget ‘Anglo Arms Zebra Wood Lock Knife’ I cut myself foolishly snapping off a branch of wood. I should have put the knife down. Such as life. I was carving a basic tent peg as part of the test. Proceeding with it the cut went on to bleed a fair bit, which prompted some survival first aid on the spot.

As far as the knife went it felt good, it was weighty, of good length and comfortable with its curvy design and zebra wood finish. However, after only one use the blade started rocking. I would have given it a 3 out of 10 if it were not for the fact that I could tighten the blade with an Alum Key or next best thing a tiny screw driver. A tidy little feature the rating therefore went up to 7-10 for this budget affair.

As you can see the First Aid went well. Onsite I used some moss, which has always been used as a field dressing in conflict or civilian life. See what you think as to its effectiveness and that of the knife.
