Recently, one of our readers emailed us and asked if we knew what kind of knife Creek Stewart uses on the show "Fat Guys in the Woods." Creek, the show's host, also presents this same knife to a participant in each episode who shows outstanding determination or ingenuity.
After watching a couple of episodes of Fat Guys, I can tell that the knife he is using/presenting is an Ontario Blackbird SK-5 Survival Knife with a Hedgehog Leatherworks leather sheath:
I am familiar with this knife/sheath because I reviewed both of them here at RMB last June. Check out the review here.
On a side note, "Fat Guys in the Woods" looks to be one of the better survival shows, presenting good survival techniques while keeping outlandish scenarios and over the top drama to a minimum. I was familiar with Creek Stewart prior to the show, and like Cody Lundin, he is the real deal, with many years of teaching survival and bushcraft under his belt.
UPDATE- Weather Channel cancels Fat Guys
