I went and ordered the ESEE 5 Plain edge black with sheath $166.95.

If it doesn't quit meet my expectations I will go with the TOPS next.

I have the Ka-Bar Becker BK9, and I would not recommend it.

It is rather large and cumbersome, and doesn't hold an edge particularly as well as others.

For the price, it's a good knife. Especially with the detail knife that it usually comes with. But the sheath belt loop doesn't fit around a standard military pistol belt, and when I wear it, it stretches from hip to knee. And I'm 6'-4".

If I were to go back, for the price I'd get the BK-7.

The Gerber LMF has done me really well and can be picked up fairly cheap. Nice quality made in USA knife with a price tag that allows to have a spare.

The order for the ESEE 5 fell through because of credit card fraud froze my account before they processed the order, I still plan on getting the ESEE 5 for now and will replace the order soon.

Ontario's don't have the ESEE warranty afaik.

I've been thinking about picking up one of these knives by KOA:

That sucks, but glad they caught it before you got taken for a shitload.

Buddy got taken for over 2500 in fuel purchases before they locked the account.

Fuck. What card company?

When I bought my MacBook my bank called to verify the purchase literally 3 minutes after my card was swiped. I hadn't crawled through the Apple store crowd before my cell started ringing.

Love that kind of service.

Not sure which card he had... this was 15 years ago though, things weren't as tight as they are now.
He's a stock broker with Smith Barney, which is a Citi company, but I've seen him use cards that are not Citi.

I've been using an Ontario USMC bayonet that a friend gave me years ago. I camp maybe twice a month during the winter and the thing has never let me down.

Something to baton wood, start a fire with, light chopping, like a small conifer branch to make bedding to sleep on and maybe clean larger game. I don't know what your talking about all this nutella, bagels, pancakes, fry oil and picnic tables...?

While it's nice to have a knife that's able to do all those things, a hatchet may be better suited to your needs?
