I mic'ed the back of the blade and it's 2.3mm which makes it pretty sturdy. The grip is nicely rubberized also. All things combined make it ideal for more delicate work such as cleaning fish, gutting/cleaning game or even for use in the kitchen. Mine will reside in the kitchen. I needed a good kitchen knife which is why I decided to pick one up.
One bad thing. The metal does tend to stain if you don't clean it right away. You can see a mark on the blade edge and on the side. So far that's my only complaint.
