Default Randall Trapper Knife

Ok guys, can I get any opinions on whether or not the Randall Trapper would make a good survival knife?
It has a 1/4" thick blade
a 5' blade
and a full tang

My problem is that it was a gift, and is far too pretty to experiment with, so I was wondering if any of you fine people had any ideas on whether or not it is a viable option.
I use my woods knives hard, for everything from harvesting corn and sugar cane to batoning soft woods.

I would not use it for hard work. Save up and get an ESEE or US Pilot Survival Knife, or US Navy Seal Knife to beat up. They can take it.

Save that beautiful trapper.

The Trapper Model 25. Great knife and you'll have no problems doing everything with it.

I have one and used it all the time--not as much as I first did as it was the only blade I had like that and now I have others that I'm using instead, to see how they work out, so the collection of Randalls are getting closer and closer to the display cabinet.
