    Democrats are doing more to destroy our country than the Russians could ever hope to do.

    Oh, I'm right here. But there are lots of "what ifs" on a project like this.

    I mean, I know guys who camp with folders. Then again, I know "city boys" who won't carry anything but a fixed blade. How about the owner's competency? Is he a sharpener?

    For example, if I'm headed towards the boonies (which isn't often) I'd carry a CRKT Ken Onion Homefront, the one with the aluminum handle. It clips to your pants, and comes apart with your bare hands for a thorough cleaning.

    My guess is that the OP has a different point of view.

    Edit: BTW, I clicked on the OP's link and it's been taken down.

    Yes. Tourist that is a big question to answer. In my simple world the Buck 119 I have had a long time is perfection. SS nothing seems to bother it . Just about the right size of anything. It not sharp by your standards but cuts and holds an edge. You can dress a deer with it to can cut small wood for a fire. If I can't break the handle it aint breaking and I have not made a mark in it. It will stab into what needs stabbing.
    But best and perfection are to be decided by a person own point of view.

    C'mon Josephb

    I assume your a grown man, so make a decision and go get you a knife or 3! $200 will buy you a couple or 3 pretty good ones. Don't overthink this my friend, its just a knife.

    Know the best outdoor knife I ever had back in Boy Scouts was a long machete. It could cut off a snakes head or chop down a tree right quick. We bought ours at the Army Navy surplus store for a buck or so..some still blood stained. Sure the prices have went up over the years. Check out some of these beauties.

    Well, Slip, you probably wouldn't say that if you were caught in a parking lot after dark with a flimsy Swiss Army Knife.

    A knife is like any piece of survival equipment. If you want to survive, you buy items that are the best that you can find. And I do the same with firearms, I buy the best magazines and most lethal, reliable ammunition made.

    All my late night parking lot excursions are most certainly, filled with .45ACP Goodness!

    As we learned in cop school 101 only a liberal brings a knife to a gun fight...and we got extra knives in inventory if they forget to bring their own.
