What is this knife designed for?

This is a knife made of rust resistant stainless steel deigned to be use in back country camping situations. The UST ParaKnife FS 4.0 includes a fire starter and so this knife is designed to build fires. You could cut small limbs with it and shave feather sticks for camp fires. You can cut rope easily with the short serrated section of the blade. So this knife could be used to make shelters and cut lengths of cord to tie up different parts of the shelter. The cordage for setting up hammocks could be cut with this knife. 

One could kill small animals and skin them with a knife of this sort. 

What would you do to prepare the knife for use?

Since I know the machete comes out of the package ready to use and sharp I would presume this knife does also. They are made out of the same material and made in the same manner. That is to say you have one piece of steel that is contiguous forming the blade and the handle. I would do what one of the videos showed in preparing the handle of the machete. Take the cordage off of the handle of this knife and put 550 cord on first. Then re-wrap the handle with the original cordage which is softer than the 550 cord. This gives you a thicker handle to grip. Then finish off the handle with at least two layers of vet wrap to keep everything together and give you a good grip. This seems to me a very sensible method of preparing the handle. I would still suggest using gloves when operating with the knife but it would be less necessary for short use periods. You would want to avoid getting blisters on your hand when in an outdoor situation for several days. Blisters could get infected and this would present and issue.

Have you found a video to show us how this knife does in someone's hand?

Yes I have two short video looking at the knife and hope you enjoy it.

What other uses can you see the knife might be good for?

One suggestion that I ran into was to use the UST ParaKnife FS 4.0 as a spear point. You take a stick and make a slice in the top of the stick for the handle to fit into. Remove the paracord from the handle and put the sheath on the blade to prevent cutting your hand. Wedge the handle into the slice in the stick. The hole at the base of the blade is for the paracord to go through and tied on. Then wrap the handle into the stick with the cord. Before you finish come back up and wedge part of the paracord into the groove with the knife. Then wrap some paracord around the stick again and tie it off.  You will have created a very sharp spear on a strong stick for hunting purposes.
