Custom made flash blade fighting knife. I got a frind that makes quick-draw lock blades. His "flash blade" has a 4.25 inch 440 steel tanto shaped blade. The handle frame is skelital. It is light and has a razor sharp edge. It is eazy to sharpen. Being 440 steel you got to put a little oil on it from time to time.
Camping knife: it depends on where, and what I will be doing.
Hiking the AT I uased 2 cheepo lock blades....like the $3 type you find at the gas station. light and easily replaced along the trial.


There are wonders out there...now to go find them HFHS (Have Fun & Hike Safe)

Leatherman Squirt P2, IIRC. I'm not finding one easily to be sure of model and posting a link. I have a Light My Fire sheath knife, Mora blade, striker. I may start carrying it,, depending on how light I want to go. STP has these for $20, plus shipping, and there may be some other discount available. I just ordered one for a buddy's Christmas present.

Fixed blade/neck knife: ESEE Izula 2
Folder: Svord Peasant Knife
Multi tool: leatherman or SAK (with saw)
Chopper: Cold Steel Trail Hawk
Saw: Opinel

Of course these change from time to time depending on what I'm doing and in the mood to use. I sorta collect edged tools so I have a lot and my preference changes sometimes. The Izula 2 has been a great companion though. It handles anything I throw at it from food prep to splitting wood at fire prep.

I have a lot of knives. I've collected them all my life. When my father passed he also collected & my mother gave me his collection. I do not use the collection knives as most are worth hundreds each.

I have my using knives. My most favorite 2 are a Mora Bushcrafter stainless in bright orange which I use for almost everything. The other is a China Mora knock off in carbon that I gave $5 for. The carbon is easier to sharpen to razor status & is used for my cooking knife.

My hatchet is a cheap$12 one I got from Amazon thats light & works great. Also carry a Gerber retractable saw. Been looking @ the Mora hatchet & that will probably be my next blade purchase.

The knife I carry with me every day is a SOG Mini Aegis. It has held up well to extended use, keeps its edge decently well, and has been a great overall knife. For a multi tool I like one by SOG as well, but the name escapes me. It is of course one with a lot of tools on it because I always feel like there's a chance I could need one of them. In reality, I only use the pliers and the knives on it.

I have a Mora Outdoors and it is a great tool for me. I'm not a knife guy by any means, honestly they make me a little nervous but it has worked very well for general campsite chores and things like that.

I've been using my LT. Wright Skeletonkey. It's lightweight (no scales), good steel, and has never let me down.
