I'm a big fan of RAT knives and have an RC4 and Izula.



The new HEST is interesting as well.

the old timers might have changed hands, but to me and all the people out west where i got mine, the quality between the new and old models is neglible. shit all difference. only problem i had, was the clip on the sheath was a bit stiff. so i got it replaced with a smoother clip.

YES !!!!! I adore the puukko style; most things Scandinavian for that matter. I don't make the same sort of money today as I did five years ago, so knives have taken a back burner on my list of hobbies. Roger Bergh is probably one of my favorate designers/smiths. I have a couple of his blade blanks via BladeGallery, which someday I'll get around to doing something with.

I check ebay from time to time for a good deal on a small UHC Roselli or KP series Kellam.

I know it's not a fixed blade. But it's got two locking blades.

I use this tool more that anything else I've got. It's invaluable.
And for $70.

A fixed blade is nice nice for hunting when you're skinning out big critters.
When I'm hunting I carry 2-3 fixed blade knives. The only real criteria I have is whether they can hold an edge or or and how easily they sharpen up.
Even more important than a knife is the sharpening tool.
The Spyderco Sharpmaker is the best I've found

+1 Leatherman Wave. Carry it with me all the time, including bike trips, so for "survival" it may be all I have to rely on. That's not such a bad thing as it's so versatile. Also use the Ka-bar for camping - excellent as well, but not quite as descreet as the Wave....

I carry a Leatherman Charge xTi a lot, for the tools on it. I don't think I've ever used the cutting blade; I'll use whatever other knife I'm carrying instead.

I just listed this in the fleamarket if anyone is in the market. It's a beautiful knife, it's just to nice for what I'm going to do with it. I'd feel bad for it if I left it stuck in a tree for a week or two straight.

Yeah, apart from the 2 knives I just bought, I also carry this Wave in my tool roll.

So can a man have too many knives?
