This looks like a pretty good blade. Haven't held one in my hand but Tops makes good stuff.
Here is a link for a detailed description. http://www.topsknives.com/product_in...37msecrs5on5u3

I just got a Fallkniven F1, haven't used it much yet a couple day hikes on snow shoes and a week of camping but I like it so far!

There seems to one retailer in Finland which does exports:

Not sure if you got some import restrictions in the US though.

That's a knife!

You said THE, didn't you? SOG Tigershark 2.0. I got mine at the National Survival Center site. Located at 123 Asskick Street. Best price, great folks. If I needed 1 to survive, baby, it is cocked and locked.

That's a pretty opinionated statement. Not to be argumentative, because we all have our likes and dislikes, but can you name a single thing a Cold Steel knife can do that a Busse can't do better? (aside from costing less) I'd say with their Infi, Busse is the North American company to beat... I'm not saying you have to use your knife as a prybar to see if it's decent, but torture tests are pretty confidence inspiring when you're discussing survival. You've said how pleased the guys in the sandbox are with their SOGs. Do you know one of them who wouldn't trade it for a Busse if given the chance?:

your knife tests site is a little misleading. I'm no knife/blade/steel expert far from it. However the test of the coldsteel tanto hammered into a piece of angle iron, which broke the blade, this test was not done to the busse. looks like the knifetest site is a busse ad site.

This is pretty much the best there is. I carry mine in a ankle sheath.

It's not because you don't see something that it doesn't exist.

I saw a lot of videos showing a Busse cutting through steel on this site. Here're some.

Part 9 and 10.

OK, it's not angle iron but I think that this guy uses what's available around.

Do a google search reviews on this knife you will be hard pressed to find a bad review.

That's what I carry whenever I'm "out" camping, hiking, hunting etc. I fucking LOVE that knife. Well made, simple, ergonomic, useful, and beautiful to boot! It's definitely my #1 knife out of the many I've owned.

I have a $15 Mora Knife. Absolutely Great. Blade holds and edge and is easy to sharpen, Only bad part is it rusts.
