I'll go ahead and pay the heavy price (get it - heavy?) of another ounce or two to have a handle you can actually get a grip on.
Have you tried to use a flat handled knife? Or a skeleton grip? They are not comfortable. They twist in your hand.

I'll second jhe. Thin is hard to get a grip on. Angular isn't to good, either. I had an old school Buck 112 with hard edges (not rounded) on the handle. While it was wide enough for a good grip, it painfully dug into the palm of my hand and fingers when I wanted to put real force on it.
I'd always go with a good handle on a knife meant for heavy work.

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

What's the point of having a fixed blade wilderness knife if it isn't going to be strong enough to baton with?
My first impression when I opened the link was "mess kit knife". Especially the Mountain caper. I think I prefer my ESEE 4.
just another day in paradise.
If it won't do the work it needs too it doesn't matter how light it is. These might make a good 2nd light duty knife but not a primary.......dj
Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................
I guess I wouldn't really be batoning stuff with a knife that was specifically for skinning animals. I get the point though.
I've used an izula to take apart a deer before and I didn't find it terrible, certainly not as comfortable as the hunting knife sybo made for me but that thing is huge, not an ultralight knife.
my go to woods knife i got it 22 years ago for scuba diving i have used more in the woods than diving
