Cold Steel Knives
« on: November 11, 2013, 07:09:42 PM »
Again, I advocate Cold Steel Knives.  They are sharp, tough, and relatively inexpensive.  I currently own my third one.  Gave the other two away as gifts.
The first one was a 6" "Voyager".  The second one was a "Spartan".  The one I carry now is a "Recon 1" with Tanto blade.[attach=1]
They have all given exemplary service, never failed, and never chipped.
Try one out for yourself!  You won't be disappointed.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

I use the G.I. Tonto as the "sharpened prybar" survival knife in the go bags. A big knife is safer for folks that don't want to invest the time in learning how to wield a hatchet safely. I'd rather they had to baton their firewood than that they put a small axe head into the femoral artery.

Usually to be complemented with something like a Mora Companion for general work:

Carbon steel blades will last longer, hold an edge longer, and in an emergency strike sparks from quartz or flint much better, than stainless steel. You have to take care of them though.
