Question Knife stuff

I have a Randall No. 1 7", with some options, but I carry a Jerry Hendrix, loveless style drop point, and a Benchmark 940. Depends on what you have to survive. Out on my bike, I have the BM Osbourne 940, and my Jerry Hendrix Loveless. Out in the bush, the Randall comes along.

In my bedroom, I have an Anatolian Shepard, and a Sig.
the picture is the Hendrix "Loveless style"

Yeah, a Randal #1. Ya never know when you might have to fight off a grizzly. Even something like a 14 is too big. Any knife designed with the military in mind has knife fighting included in the task it might have to do. The #1 is an excellent fighting knife and the #14 ain't bad. Both are sorry knives to use in the field.

I'm no certifiable survialist, but how about a SOG Seal Pup and a multi-tool? Throw in a fire steel and I'm thinking you're good to go!

Nah, prolly 'bout as much a you. Lota play knife fightin'. Gotta a few fightin' knives if it makes any difference including a Randall 1 and a 14 I used to wear around on my LBE to impress folks. Did spend a lotta time in the woods so I know what works in a survival situation. I I was also a SERE instructor and graduated from the SERE instructor school a JFK Special Warfare Center back in '83. Just recently paddled the length of the Mississippi River in a kayak, 2,300 miles in 69 days. Carried a Victorinox folder and a titanium sheath knife on my PFD that never came out of the sheath.

What I personally like about hollow handles is the fact that you can insert a branch or broom handle or whatever and have a bitchin' spear or weapon.

Really? Have you thrown a hollow handle-ed knife on a tip of a stick and landed making use of it? They snap pertty easy with little effort...
