I just don’t get it? Skimp on such a vital tool, I see it sooo much, folks preach survival this and survival that and then when it comes to gear they go cheap, when you might need it the worst you depend on the worst equipment. It just make no sense?
Welcome to the forum!I've had a timberline specwar before and loved it.
it's hard to beat for a good solid weight, great blade, if you break it, it probably saved your life.
like this one: http://www.botachtactical.com/tiemspkn.html
I currently (for camping) carry a too heavy + big
but can put it through a door custom blade a buddy made for me.
it'd be too heavy for most. so for a production model, I recommend the specwar.
Just saw a Buck 119 last weekend, and it looked pretty nice.
That would deserve its whole own thread. I wonder if the mods would be ok with a knife porn thread in the gallery?Need pictures. Maybe someone can do some side by side pictures of some of these, or scale different pictures and put them all next to each other. It really would help.
IMO you would be better off with a quality dedicated hatchet and dedicated knife. trying to do tasks with a comprimise tool and you will probably end up with more work on either end.Any thoughts on this:
seems to be half-way between a hatchet and a knife. Would love to hear some thoughts on it.
