One of the great things about this little knife is that it is little but does a big job. It not only can cut cord and meat and anything else a big knife can but it also has a para cord loop to tie onto and it can open my beer. What a tool! It is made of Carbonitride Titanium with a molded sheath and it is a great tool to carry when canoeing as it is not cumbersome. The Heater may be small but it purposeful and great to have.
