I used to think it was my ASH 2 but then I got this REK'ed TGLB and it's now my new "If only one" knife. It should do everything that needs done that a situation where I can only grab one would be called for it to do: deer processing, wood prep, fighting, prying, etc. It won't do big wood prep, but that's why I carry a Silky Gomboy folding saw in each of my bags. Took it out to hang trail cameras and clear shooting lanes for the upcoming bow season. Love this knife.
