I got a RTAK 2 for chiristmas and it is amazing!!! Its very well balanced, has great chopping power, and very comfortable in your hand. I reprofiled the blade to about 20degrees and its shaving sharp. I used the hell out of it too. I cut down a few trees that were 10in, then limbed them. We also went wild pig hunting and i used it to butcher 4 pigs, I was surprised at how well it suited the task. For such a big knife it didnt seem "too big" for butchering. I also chopped some of the leg bones with it and it would cut right through in one chop and the thing stayed sharp the whole time. Ill post some picts when I get my camera working. Just wanted to let everyone know its one hell of a good knife for $100 and I would recomend it to anyone looking for a big chopper/outdoor blade.
