The swamp rat rodent solution is basically swamp rat version of the very popular ESEE 3. both of the knives are used in the same role by most people: EDC and camping/bushcraft chores.
in these tasks they preform quite well and when i used it no hot spots developed. EDC: while the knife is a bit long in my taste for horizontal front carry because the handle sticks out a bit too much and people can see it. but for IWB carry it works great it very concealable and comfortable in that configuration. if you are in a area that are more sensitive to these types of tools the RS is a small knife and should not make people freak out. but use proper judgement when taking out your knife.
Camping/bushcrafting: the RS is excellent at feathering wood for a fire and shaving the bark off for making a bow or making a spear. i also used it for food prep and while i got some odd looks from my buddys it worked in that role very well.
Sheath: if you are new to the bussekin world you will soon find out that the knives do not come with a sheath. while this might annoy some people it is really not a problem because with a bit of research you will find many high quality sheath makers that can make you a custom sheath for an excellent price. I will include sheath makers that are either highly recommended on the forums or i have used in the past.
If you do not want to spend a bunch of money everytime to get a custom sheath made you can with a bit of money start making your own sheaths out of kydex or leather i will also include a link to the site that i use to get my kydex supplies
