    I really like the Battle Grade version with its flat grind and small choil. There were some INFI ones configured the same way that got away at a blade show but I'm perfectly happy with my SR101.

    NMFSH. You need at least one. Close second would be a NMFBM.

    Of the 10 busses I've owned the hog badger is the nicest user for hunting :thumbsup:
    But then again I've never tried one of those ash's that Andy keeps raving about!!

    I'm going with ratmandu. It's obtainable, reasonably priced, sized to be on you all the time and will show you what you need more of.

    For me, the knives I love are the knives I use. Then I make them mine by adjusting the things I dislike about them.

    I've got some I don't use as much, and I find they are the ones I am least attached to.

    B-11, and a Paul's. If you can not open, or flip whatever is in your path. You shouldn't be there anyway.

    Also giving a nood to the crashaxe, pork chop, fat warden, ffbm, and nuke pick. May have missed a few.

    Like a pokamon.... gotta beat em all..

    That would be the SFNO Le.

    You can get by without others, but the SFNO Le is a must. Get that one.

    A mandatory pile of Res C in any & all steel offerings & sizes.

    Obligatory grails that I won’t part with:
    NMFBM stripped
    Stripped/convexed RMD
    ASH1 .20 stripped

    There isn’t a single Busse or Kin I couldn’t justify owning (affording is another story).

    They are all a win.
