I just sold this knife after having it a while not knowing anything about it so before I sent it to the new owner I asked him what he knew - bout the same as me - a 1941-1946 Camillus3 5/8" 4 blade scout/camp knife covered in what I call "cracked ice camo" Haven't been able to find another one like it on the internet so I thought Id post a couple pics here before I send it on its merry way.  Comments welcome - thanks!

Looking forward to take this recently found big boy out in the woods and making some little sticks out of big sticks.  I've been looking for a machete with a blade profile like this for a few years now - last week I walked into a pawn shop there it was

Steve, you are correct, at least when compared to the little Outdoorsman:

While I like the Sidewinder, it is more knife than I need on my day hikes.  Plus as the  name states - it is a Heavy Hunter!

always thiught that was a large and very strong knife

My RR Sidewinder is larger than that, Tobias, but I like to carry it when I am out and about in the woods.  BTW I chopped down that tree with it.

I recently bought a little Rough Rider fixed blade and reviewed it in the "Fixed Blade" discussion in this group.   In the past, when I've gone day hiking I've sometimes carried a fixed blade that was around 8-9 inches overall with a 4.5 or five inch blade.  

Considering I've rarely use it for more than notching wood, stripping bark or turning over smal stones, I'm now thinking of carrying a smaller knife such as this 6 3/4 inch fixed blade.  For one thing It'll fit in a pocket easier.   My other thought to wear a neck knife such as a ESSI Izula or TOPS Cheetah.

The reason I'm leaning toward the Rough Rider is it would look less threatening to game wardens and would also cost less to replace if confiscated.

Has anyone else gone small when it comes to carrying a fixed blade?  If so would you care to show the knife and your reasoning for going small.

Here is the Rough Rider Outdoorsman Fixed Blade I intend to carry when wandering in the woods.
