Wanted to get some input/feedback from all you good folks out there that have some practical experience between these two knives. I want to gift one of these to my son as part of an upcoming college graduation gift. Both I believe have some similar characteristics (cost/value, steel, relative size, etc.) but I've never put them to use and I always have preferred the 5 or 5.1 size and waiting on a 4.1 as well. I've told him to do a little of his own research on the two and may end up one day having him personally check them out but I believe some input from those in the field would be of great value. One last caveat is that he might be joining the service (Army) in the very near future as well. Thx!
