The Stonewall has a larger belly in the blade making it perfect for skinning out animals or cutting meat. The added length of this blade makes it possible to baton it through wood if needed. The blade is stout enough to put up to nearly any abuse you can put it through. At .135 thick at the spine, this 52100 blade is stronger than any task will be. At just .015 thick at the edge, this knife will still cut like a laser but still has enough steel behind the edge to chop wood for hunting camp. The G-10 handle scales are equally as tough as the blade. G-10 is notorious for being strong, durable, and stable. No natural handle material can compare to its toughness.
