    The 21st-century answer to the Bowie knife

    Posted by Dave on 25th May 2016

    I was left so impressed with MercWorx knives after purchasing a 'Meggido' back in 2011 - my second MercWorx knife after purchasing an Atropos (no longer available) in 2008 - that I began deliberating not long after over whether I should next purchase the intimidating 'Equatorian'. And now that I finally have, I am bitter that I waited so long! Because this bad boy is just 'The End' in the way of multi-purpose knives! Yes, its size and mass place it in the upper limit of what is practical. But it will render tasks possible for him (or her) who wields it what are improbable, if not outright impossible, with pretty much any other knife in its class or below! And yeah, it REALLY is as gorgeous as the photos at MercWorx website indicate! So when you're not relying on it to facilitate or preserve yours or your loved ones lives, it'll make a really lovely cheese knife during the holidays!

    One of the better utility knives on the market.

    Posted by R.H. on 6th Jun 2014

    I wanted a thick chopping knife for use with livestock, skinning, preparing and cutting up the meat, that would not wear out as quickly as the ones I have been using.

    I bought the equatorian in s30v based off a youtube review, and am very happy with it. It does not hold its edge as long as 3V but more than makes up with it in its sheer size and rust resistance, 3V being particularly susceptible to blood rust pitting. This knife washed up with zero staining whatsoever.

    The sheath is really cheap and won't hold up to use for long, but I don't use it anyway, since it goes in the drawer with the meat saw. The double edge and slightly rounded point makes this knife perfect for butchering, and is just rounded enough that it will not puncture the hide accidentally, though the point is very sharp.

    I sharpened it on arrival at around 20 degrees on each side, and have only had to resharpen it once after dressing a dozen animals! Try getting that kind of performance out of a generic butcher kit. It can do everything but the boning, in which you need a thin long knife. Don't hesitate to buy this one, you won't regret it. This knife is a keeper.
