The NBS has been one of those blades that has been moving behind the scenes. For those who find it and fall in love they  remain loyal users. The Knife is a low drop point profile with a high Sabre grind to make cutting easy. It has a full tang construction and comes with three .250 inches (6.35 mm)  lanyard holes to allow for lashing or what ever your mind can see come up with. A unique feature of the NBS is that it has an extended tang that can be checkered or left plain. The extension has been nicked named "The Sparrow Crown" by the Equipped to Endure crowd. Such a tool as an extended tang can be found to have many uses like: shredding wood and your magnesium bar for fire starter, creating micro fibers to catch sparks, striking a ferro rod and even scraping out the inside of a burned out bowl. A list of things you that can be done with the extended tang seems to be ever growing, as I have discovered from its many users. Overall a knife built for wilderness use.
