>>2098100

I have a Journeyman, which is basically the same thing with a less stabby stabby blade shape, and it works fine. Does everything you'd expect a knife of that length to do when /out/. The coating is tougher than I thought it'd be. Factory edge was a little ragged, but stropping on cardboard cleaned it up fine.

I want to pickup a Journeyman with the funky as hell tanto blade when they're available in my area of the woods.

>>2098124

That'd be fine. If you want to batony chop chop, the SK5 Cold Steel SRK is generally one of the cheapest beater blades out there.

The perfect knife is somewhere between 5-6 inches, made thin enough to slice, but thick enough to chop wood, with good stainless steel and a well made guarded handle

>too small to turn the tables in a life and death encounter
three inches will more than kill anything if you get it in the neck

>>2098341
You dont want to be relying on neck shots when attacked by some wild animal. Need as much length as you can afford so anything in the body is long enough to hit vitals.
Too much fur, leather, fat, bone, connective tissue in the variables to rely on some 3 inches.
Sure you could still kill things, but by the time it dies you'll be wearing more injuries than necessary.

My collection, missing some Mora's which I hate, and Opinel #6 & #8 which are dumb sizes. Thus, the SS and carbon #12's pictured.

Need to streamline. I really like old school grandpa knives and the Squirt the most.
>>
Purple is sentimental, my grandpa and dads fixed blades. And the Case XX.

Keeping the Leatherman Wingman and Squirt.

Keeping the 2" Gerber, it has a great blade grind and is nice for cutting fruit and veggies. Just wish it had wood handle.
Opinels 6, 8, 12 & 12 SS all gotta go. They are not durable for innawoods LARPing, they're inferior to ordinary kitchen knives when camping. Useless at home in kitchen. They just suck. They even suck to open and close. The handle angle makes your hand touch cutting board before the blade, so you really only have like 2" of useful cutting edge. Oh and Carbon Steel has only pissed off females. - "Is this clean? Is this sanitary? Does anyone have a clean knife?"

Folders really are compromise, I need to stop buying little gay ass pocket knives and get some really nice kitchen cutlery. Those are the only knives that matter. And then maybe something like a Spyderco Police or Military.
>>
>>2098808
Why do you hate mora? I don’t like them much myself but curious about your thoughts
>>
>>2098926
not him but the thing that people hate about moras that makes sense to me is that scandi grinds are essentially chisels and the edge is extremely sharp but extremely weak, and because its not a compound edge, you have to remove a fuck ton of material to resharpen them, so much that it really requires something like a belt grinder and jig, not something you can do innawoods with a simple flat stone.
>>
>>2098419

I find large knives far more useful than hatchets simply because they chop as well in the end, and batoning is fine with them.

A Trail Master or Junglas (or any other similar sized or bigger knives), are a one tool job.
>>
>>2098926
Mainly the grip that sits so much lower than the blade edge. Useless.
What the other guy said, having to resharpen the Companion was the deal breaker. Scandi grind pretty limited.
I'm really only interested in full grind knives these days and not prone to falling for shills and memes anymore
>>
>>2097786
Neat. Do you have a favorite model?
>>
>>2098942
>they chop as well in the end
They sure as hell do not.
>>
>>2099174

They really do. A single hit won't bite in as far, but you can get off two swings in the same amount of time and exceed one hatchet swing.

I cut down small trees constantly, and I started with a hatchet and then went to a large knife. It's also easier to break off the dead limbs with the spine of the knife.

The Trail Master is what I mostly use.

Axes are better tho. Hatchets for kindling. Knives are for cutting things

>>
>>2099245
I been feeding a wood fire heater for my home for over 20 years, combined that with the years of camping, I can say I have process literally thousands of pounds of woods. A hatchet will perform better than a Esee jungles 1 or 2, Bk 9, other large blades. A hatchet just doesn't cut, it also splitting, with all the weigh in front it requires less energy and time. Go take your larp else where, you lying faggot.

Hatchets are too heavy for my /out/kit. Once you have a good fixed blade and a small folding saw, a hatchet will struggle to justify its weight in your pack. Except maybe in a snowy winter environment where you're using a ton firewood.

Id honestly rather take a meme small shovel instead.

Bought a Kershaw Chill cuz on sale. It's a manual flipper but the thing is fucking unopenable. I have literal bruises on my fingertips from testing the kickflip. I sanded down the detent ball a bit, and it's like 30% better, but it takes a fuckton of force to flick open. Do I file it down more, or just pop the ball out entirely and let the liner lock keep it closed? I usually leave my knife in a bag, so I'm not worried about it coming open.

Also, I bought a blackwash Kershaw Zing that I'm considering taking the speedsafe out of. Will I just get the same problem?

You need a bit of technique to get it right with a stone and if he's used to the simple v-shaped crap it may be too much of a hassle just to put an edge on. They can be quite enjoyable and 'therapeutic' if you get into it though.

Spyderco's sharpmaker is almost idiot proof and easy to use.

Lansky Deluxe Sharpening System is also cheap and easy to use, but a little more work setting it up than the spyderco.

I just had to tell myself he was trolling for (you)s. The Gerbers are the most useless pieces of shit pictures. If they performing better for the poster it’s because he doesn’t know how to sharpen and all his shit except the serrated portion on the gerb has dulled out long ago

The rat 3/esee 3 is also a great knife. Go for it in both cases

No he likes the plain edge 2” Gerber I stand corrected. Still if that’s performing better than an opineil for him he’s doing something terribly wrong. I guess the high saber on it gives him more confidence and visual aid while sharpening because the geometry leads to a higher wider bevel. What a nigger

I don’t have anything “name brand” from everyone showing or some maple flavored, wood scaled masterpiece

But my edc that I was given from a dear friend was this

From what I hear, there was one with a gut knife on one side and a serrated similar blade on the other.
Will say this knife has served me loyally for about 3 years. Plus its slender and fits in my wasteband and pockets with no complaints. Could use a sharpen though

Ontario RAT II if you want to stick under 3", RAT I if you don't care about it being bigger.

Opinels are fine for what they are. They are aesthetic and they are sharp as FUCK, but I don't really like the barrel lock personally. There are also some tricks you need to learn if you use them all the time, like how to knock them open when they're swollen shut after getting wet.

I've carried a carbon Opinel no 8 for 6 years.
It's price was what made me give it a try and it can be very sharp.
The locking mechanism is simple and effective but the blade does wobble a lot and it doesn't stay closed all the way down when in pocket mode, I've cut my fingers a couple of time when reaching down in my pocket because it opens just slightly.
The blade itself is very nice, thin and very easy to sharpen.

>AEB-L equivalent steel which is a very good steel for kitchen knives

It's my favorite steel overall, even for fixed /out/. It has great edge stability and holds a razor edge for a long time (actual edge retention isn't great, but its razor edge/apex holds long and it's easy to sharpen).
>>
>>2115046
I have this same one in the transparent blue. Super impressed with the corrosion resistance with the bdn1. I keep it in my shorts while wading in the saltwater. Dry it once I'm out and still no rust after a year.
>>
>>2118723
the important question with all the many kitchen knives is always how they're hardened. 53 HRC blunts like crazy but at least it wont chip when some idiot cuts on a glass surface, thus saving the manufacturer the complaints

Agree but if you have a 65 hrc knife it will literally never go dull. Food is always like 70% water and it does take to cut lots of food to really wear out your knife. Most kitchen knife dull by the edge bending or getting crushed

Not much to say there, it's no secret that many cutlery companies (especially those that market to normies, not the ones for knowledgeable customers/professionals) underharden their knives so that the blades don't break when abused in ways you're not supposed to use a knife.

Collecting knives is a bit high on the power levels, I mean its really down to outdoorsmen, tactical nerds and miscreants. And most people only think about the miscreants.

Hell, only the other day it hit me that just a few basic items recommended as part of hiking essentials, heavily overlap with what you see found in the cars of serial killers. bushknife + paracord + work gloves = weapon + rope + killers gloves. Not to mention where they tend to go to hide the bodies...

Reminder that the Cold Steel Broken Skull is still by far the best 4 inch EDC you can buy.
- Ultra thin.
- Ultra light.
- Super strong lock (only lock that wont wear out from medium utility tasks like cutting off branches).
- Good steel (sadly they switched from CTS-XHP which is the best allround steel to CPM-S35VN which is up there with the best as an allrounder but not quite CTS-XHP level).
Drop it in your pocket and literally forget it's there until you need a blade and remember you've got 4 inches of it. If they'd get rid of the cheesy logo and the ugly clip point it'd be the perfect 4 inch utility folder.
>B-but what about the Spyderco Military?
Much sexier and more fun to play with but doesn't touch its carriability and utility.

Too fat and big to be carried comfortably. Also still uses that cheap coating and not DLC?

Comes close and is more fun to play with but not as light and slim and too expensive to really use properly.

They're pretty autistic and bad at what they're supposed to do. Buy him a chinese Edge Pro Apex style sharpening jig instead. Or a sharpening wheel.

More importantly though buy him a leather strop and some green polishing compound. You only "sharpen" the knife when you've honed it so much that the profile of the edge has become too blunt. Most of the actual sharpening is done on a leather strop with polishing compound and done by adding a tiny secondary bevel (aka "micro bevel") on the primary bevel. This way you can keep the knife sharp for months without having to reprofile the edge and remove a ton of steel. Only takes a few minutes to bring just about any knife to razor sharpness on a strop.

That knife was designed for extreme use. Mora sells it as a “one tool option”. However, I have heard of the stainless model breaking “under extreme use” I have heard zero reports of a carbon garberg breaking. You probably would be fine with any mora though regardless of steel. 511 is my favorite

any brand recommendation for some general purpose knife for someone who never handled anything sharper than silverware?

durable for sure, but depends on what i can get with 100 bucks or less, as i said, i don't know squat about knives, so maybe i shouldn't even bother with a sum like that

Get a condor terrasaur or a mora garberg. If you live in a humid environment or spend time around water get the stainless garberg. If that’s not an issue carbon would be better

yeah, Its great. Not super huge but enough weight for chopping branches and stuff.
I use as a small jungle chopper and have a small knife too.
Its carbon steel, so will rust unless you oil it.

For me the canonical outdoors knife is a Finnish puukko with stacked birch-bark handle. The birch bark gets MORE grippy when it gets wet or bloody.

You can buy a custom puukko from Finland costing 400 euros or more, but there are really talented makers in other countries who can do a beautiful copy for half or two-thirds the price of a Finnish knife. Jelio Tenev and Todor Hristov in Bulgaria, Paweł Michalski in Poland, and Dima Lavrinenko in Ukraine are all excellent craftsmen.

This one is from Jelio Tenev, with an Elmax blade.

Its a bit big and heavy for a allrounder, get the
140 pukko they make, Can do it all.

you can make any wood handle more grippy when wet if you use a trad Finn finish of 1 pt turp, 1pt linseed oil (boiled is fine) and 1 pt pine tar.

Do you guys prefer leather handles?
