    I see some nice knives in here, I have been researching survival knives. I am sure that I will see some good ones in this thread. I checked out the knives that Bear Gryllis carries ,just cant afford almost $400.....any idea from you guys on affordable, not cheap survival knives?

    Yeah being exmilitary ka-bar is burnt into my head as a good knife. And for the money,great knife for the price. I want to find a knife dealer that carries the bigger brands like Ontario, I like to get the feel of the knife before buying. The local knive shop closed, I dont know where they moved.

    Haha! I have been a meat cutter for 15 years. I recognized that breaking knife from a mile away. I use the same one only with a black fibrox handle. I used a rosewood handled one for like 10 years. I prefer a six inch boning knife to the five... I use a 10 inch breaking knife sometimes, but most stuff today dosen't need it.

    I haven't had to sharpen it yet. It's a tad bulky for me but I do love its size otherwise.

    I'm jonesin for a Lum though. Maybe one day. But the longer I wait, the more $$$ they are. I have a good friend that would sell me one out of his collection (safe queens) if I ask him to. But I would feel bad doing that.

    LOL! I'm a female, alright. I've even got a Pink Benchmade Griptilian. :D And I also like firearms....;)

    I wanted to get one of those custom scaled Sebbies but there's gotta be a limit to what I spend on knives. Someone actually said something to me that helped me to curb my collection.

    "They all do the same thing. They CUT." :eek:

    I've been pretty good at not spending on knives lately.

    I don't know why they don't make a straight edge LMF. The serrated part just kills that knife IMO. Only reason I don't own one...

    I don't like serrations on ANY knife except for steak or bread knives. You can only sharpen one side and that eventually wears it down anyway. I have two knives with serrations and although its good for cutting strapping, it's just a pain to maintain.

    Might as well get a regrind...
