While I was browsing around the internet this morning I found a nice review of the Spec Elite on Bladeforums. If you are not a member go sign up for a free account and read the review.
Spec Elite Review
Also, the people at Lifeview Outdoors who produced a great DVD on short-term wilderness survival, titled Prepared to Survive, did a nice write up on the Spec Elite. So if you have not checked this knife out I think that you might be surprised at the strength and versatility of the Spec Elite.
