Which one of these would you pick for a southern woods camp and chopper, and why ? It seems to me that the straighter edge on the SP 53 might be easier to sharpen. Steel in either seems suitable. The drop point on the Kabar suits me, tho I could regrind the Ontario's tip. The saber grind on the Ontario is a little higher than the Kabar, which might make for a better choppier. I know the answer will probably be get both, use them, then decide, Sure need some knife guys opinions.
