Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

I am looking for a knife that I can take on camping trips and do some bush crafting. I would like to get some input from all of you, on what you think would be the perfect knife. I have had a few suggestions already, but I am not set on a specific knife yet. So far some of the better choices I have heard are, Kabar - Becker - BK2, BK7 and BK9. I have also heard that some of the Esee knives would make a good choice. Another part of this discussion would be, how many of you would consider using a knife for batoning? Give the reasons you would recommend the knife that you suggest. Some of the tasks I would like the knife to do for me would be: trimming small branches, carving, striking a ferrocerium rod to start a fire, possibly batoning and whatever else I might need it for.

So, lets hear your ideas!

YES!  Chant it with me now...  BHK! BHK! BHK! BHK!

Blind Horse Knives made the original Pathfinder knife for Dave Canterbury, as you may recall.  I believe LT Wright split off & the two remaining partners have now morphed into Battle Horse Knives.

Below is my cherished little Battle Horse...  The handle is so incredibly comfortable!

That is a nice looking knife DLKG! I am really wanting to get one for myself. All of the wood projects I have been doing, are getting me closer to getting it. I am afraid that they will be like Lays potato chips. I can't have just one.
