Granted, but Sigint put matches and fishhooks and thread and stuff in the grip. When the grip is hollowed out like that, there's not as much space to stabilize the blade and the grip. That makes it easier to break. So it's useless in a fight. Don't worry though; next time, he'll make it so the matches and fishhooks go in the sheath instead.
I wish for a bag or pockets with an infinite storage capacity.
