How about a non serrated one, drop the saw and add a webbing cutter/ gut hook.

Well if we are showing SAK's how 'bout a Swiss Champ. I've had it for 12-13 years now, a chick I was dating at the time took a trip over seas and on her way through Switzerland she picked this up for me. It's too damn big to carry but I get it out once in awhile

my buddy gifted me this nice one. A spring loaded folder with a convenient pocket clip.






nice one hand operation with the lock and release mechanism.






I also have a nice tibetan hunting knife back home in India but no pics of it with me currently. Very good blade with a pine oak handle.

if you own that, the mounting should include cordon tape, keep-back signs, a first aid kit and an IV set.

Somehow the image of EvilGenius riding down the road on his motorcycle, Saber raised overhead in some sort of post apocalyptical cavalry charge, scares me...


(and my odometer number, 666, makes it even scarier)

While I didn't make it, and don't recommend heavy use of what appears to be a stainless steel blade, I was able to, after reconditioning, hack through a 2x4 with relative ease using gentle sweeping blows (not perpendicular). I have no doubt at all it would take off an arm if used in anger.
