So I know I posted that I bought a Kansbol for my girlfriend for her birthday. Seeing it reminded me that I got one awhile back with an Eldris for myself.
Disclaimer, I am not a professional wood carver or bushcrafter...
The Kansbol was excellent. Very sharp, good 90 degree spine, and very robust. The true scandi part of the blade was great for heavy notching, or pressure cuts. The thinner part and tip were great for carving. I did not baton with it. I have no reason to think it would fail for reasonable sized wood. I do initially prefer it to my bushcraft black.
I was dubious about the handle, but its comfortable. It also has just enough swell to be safe in case of thrusting.
The Eldris...this little polarizing guy...heck, even I thought its silly... but what the hey, try it...
If it's all you had, it could get the job done. I would prefer it over a small folder. It is robust, very sharp, and has a very useable blade profile. You could carve, cut, gut, and whittle no problem. It is not going to process huge piles of wood, but it will get you shavings and carve you a spear.
Where it does shine is carving. It let's you get into tight places and use it like an awl. I think it's true calling is a companion carver/food prep knife and an emergency back up to your main knife (or back up).
