Not much compared to this knife when it comes to cutting wood, you're able to rip through a 2-inch branch in about 10 seconds and the knife itself is pretty much indestructible. this knife is also the one that we would recommend for batoning through firewood, we almost choose this over Hatchet it's that good.
The knife is 5.25” long and made out of 1095 cro-van Steel, it's extremely durable and very hard. Keep in mind this isn't stainless steel, so this knife will require a bit of maintenance to keep it from rusting. With its extremely thick blade and wait it is not the best knife carving or preparing meals, but it's also what makes this such a great Chopper when it comes to tree branches and firewood.

I personally like to carry three different knives including a folder, a survival knife, and a heavy-duty Chopper such as the Ka-Bar. I hope this list helps you narrow down which knife is going to be the best one for your needs.
