  • What's a good knife

    I like my Gerber LMF II, its light, has a sturdy sheath with a sharpener and lots of mounting options, good grip surface and a strong blade.

                      The bark rivers are great! I have a Bravo 1 in 3V steel that's my go to fixed blade.

                        Go to Smokey Mountain Knife Works, and spend some time going through the selection, they have the biggest selection, and best prices around. One other thing, they actually have what you want IN STOCK, if they say they have it, they have it! They aren't one of the many, re-order houses that don't seem to actually have anything in stock, but will take your order any way! BTW if you are in one of the seven Free states, you can also now purchase Automatic knives! Good luck.

                          My choice is a DUNN knife. Holds a edge very well, and wont break your bank. Around $100.
                          Breathe in
                          Breathe out
                          Move on

                            ESEE knives is my suggestion. Find a model you feel comfortable with. For me its the 3 and 4.

                                  During wilderness survival courses ive tried several knives and ESEE has become my favorite. They are a little pricey but well worth it in my opinion. A little over your budget but a Junglas with a piggyback ESEE 3 is my go to. I also agree with not putting a bunch of really expensive stuff in your BOB though if it rarely gets used. I keep a Kabar FIN in mine. It's like a sharpened D2 crowbar. The Mora is a good backup too for general bushcraft.

                                      Cold steel tanto. Cheap. Tough. You really wouldn't want to use it all the time so it fits right at home as a jik.

                                        I favor my Canadian belt knife (Grohmann #1).

                                          Bark River Bushcraft and Bushcraft II.


                                          They have a "Scandivex" grind and are made of CPM 3V steel - not quite stainless but won't rust very easily at all.

                                          Outstanding edge retention but one cannot sharpen it with Arkansas stones.

                                            https://www.amazon.com/Cold-Steel-Na.../dp/B004MN5EXE - NACHEZ bowie - good for under 200,

                                            or you can order a Hells Bells Bowie From master crafter Bill Bagwell - although that will cost you about 10x as much -

                                            then there in the onterio knockoff of the hells bell for about 200

                                            or a Bob Dozier - Keating designed Crosada but once again probably about 1.5k


                                            if you want a knife that will do it all - i like a good ol fashioned bowie -

                                              I agree with not tying a bunch of money up in a bag I hope to never use. I have this Mora I got on sale:

                                              There are a lot of good knifemakers out there these days. It's hard to go wrong. Even harder if you go with one of the ones many people have good experience with.
                                              Please don't confuse me with someone else. I am not Hide member "Eric Cartman" or another member that incorporates "Cartman" into their name. I am, and have always been, just "Cartman".

                                                Fallkniven A1 or Esee 6. I attached a pic of my A1, stout enough to use with baton to split wood and dry shave sharp.

                                                  Don't be lured by the high priced thing. I have three Mora Companions that cost $12 each and they have been golden for 15 years. In some ways better than more expensive blades I own. And because they are cheap they get a lot more use!
