I only carry a serrated edge folder outside when I go deep in to the woods with my atv. A lot easier to cut vines and other growth off you when they get wrapped and tangled on your vehicle or if they’re in the way
Here is what I usually carry.
A Spartan Blades CQB tool paired with a folder for cutting things.
Some others I’ve considered that aren’t small daggers are the Kabar Hinderer Hellfire, Clinch pick, and Spartan blades Shinto for something larger but those are a different in the way you use them so...
Picked this beauty up the other night finally ran in to one of the 440C numbered stag models for a reasonable price. They tend to have better covers and this one is fantastic. The last stag stockman I had while perfect F&F had some fat ugly covers and C75.
I got a Hogue K320 Tanto. I’ve not bought myself a knife yet last two years I’ve gotten myself something nice last year a XM-18 the year before that a Case Tony Bose Premium stockman. Not decided yet I want to get a FOBOS tier 1 mini if I can find an acid wash version
I have a CRK Pacific on my plate carrier hell of knife. FOBOS is about to release the Tier 1 at the beginning of the year look in to that if you don’t like the Pacific. Both are 6.5” blades. I’d be all over it but I have no need for it man it’s sweet
Best current production stockman is easily Böker Solingen. It’s between Case and Böker and Böker wins very easily.
Historically it’s hard to say outside of customs. That Ken Erickson stockman is incredible if he was making knives I’d 100% buy one.
The early 1900s Case stockmans look...
Catra testing has already been shown to be a joke. I guess you all aren’t aware of this. You can look it up on YouTube. But you’ll probably just dismiss it if you don’t like the people involved the way it’s told or just don’t want it to be true.
