RE: New Knife recomendations
£100 is a bit of a psychological barrier too , it's the point at which things change to "am I really wacking the beejesus out of that when it cost over a hundred quid!
Nothing is fool proof for a sufficiently talented fool!!!!

Dont think I have ever spent more than £40 on a work duty blade.

RE: New Knife recomendations
I have never spent a hundred quid on a knife before , £60 is my record up to know which was a Ka bar USMC fighting knife(a while ago)...that's a collector until such time as its needed same with the s/f daggers ,2nd and 3rd versions.

The Moras are study and affordable. I have several and agree that they are a great buy for the money. I would rather have a half dozen Moras stashed everywhere than to have one expensive Wonder Knife and have to think about where it is or worry about losing it.

EDC is a Mil-K-818 utility folding pocket knife, all metal "Boy Scout" pattern, which is the common US issue. http://kintlalake.blogspot.com/2009/04/s...-818d.html

One of the nicest blades I ever owned was a gift from my friend John in Kansas, he was not impressed with the SAK Forester I was carrying at the time, so when day i got a little package from him for my birtday, it was a Buck 110 folder, very nice but rather heavy knife, i used it for years, John EDCed a Buck 112.

RE: New Knife recomendations
Charles the knife i'm retiring is made by Camiĺlus, it's an early 70's Jet pilot survival knife that I bought in the early 80's for £10 , I thought I was getting a moody ka bar marine fighting knife just reduced in size slightly , used for many many years , carried in the poachers pocket of the 68 pattern smock on all exercises/deployments
