Maybe. if I am carrying a 3 pound hammer, why not my maul or axe? It isn't for the efficiency of it, hahah. It's just for the hell of it. I just want to split some dry oak till the knife is bare then strip it and see if the blade goes through easier. All in good fun. Realistically though, you can baton through logs in small or enclosed areas where an axe won't work. I usually baton stuff in my car, hahah... just kidding.

New leather pocket sheath just arrived for my Strider PT CC

Leather crafted by @sb_haddonleather on Instagram who will soon have an Etsy shop up as well. Really great quality, feels very durable, stiff which I like and can break in after a few weeks, and prompt comms and shipping. All for <$20. He usually shapes his pocket sheaths like a dog tag but I asked him to cut out the top to allow about 1/2" of my PT to stick out for a better grip/pull tab. Overall super happy with how this turned out and already have a second one ordered for the Dua!

Nice slip.

I have a few of the Collector Knives.net slips. He is having them made in different sizes and with clips now too. I just use them on some Great Easterns. Usually I pull them out by the bail.

my first folding blade:

kershaw cryo g10



$30 from Amazon.com.
I chose this for price and a blade < 3"

Using the thumbstuds took a little bit of learning, but I got the hang of it where I can deploy the blade as quick as using the speedsafe mechanism.

Just ordered a Kershaw Leek with composite blackwash blade. Amazon has it at their lowest price ever (according to CamelCamelCamel) and you also get the $10 off $50 in Kershaw products deal that Amazon is running again. So it was under $44 after tax. That's too good a price to skip, but I still blame all of you on this thread for completely shattering any resistance I might have had ;-)

I have been looking for a 6 1/2 to 7/12 inch knife for a while.lots of good choices out there.the Esee 6 was on my radar immediately because I already have the Esee 3,5,Junglas and Eskabar and I absolutely love them all.Ive been itching to try one of the Bussekin knives so when I found a new SYKCO 711 for $190 I pulled the trigger.Im very Impressed.I wasn't sure about the Respirene-C handle on paper but its the most comfortable grip I've ever held.the SR101 steel sharpens easily and keeps its edge well.Im suprised how light and nimble it feels for an almost 13 inch knife thats 1/4 of an inch thick.The Esee 6 is pretty much as expected.great all around knife and with a little sanding on the scales is also very comfortable and it performs the way Ive come to expect an Esee live to.plus I chose the Venom green so there's little chance of losing it on the ground and I'm guessing a lot of people wouldn't even steal it.I thought Id try them both and sell one of them after I had a chance to use them but they're both great knives and I can't part with either.Serves to remind me that with knives,just like guns,we have a lot of great choices these days and it comes down to your personal taste when choosing a new blade.

Still no "beauty" shots of my blade, but I just go this too.
Another economical blade. Based on some general tests on YouTube among other more heavier destructive testing, looks to be a pretty sturdy blade - especially since I don't plan to use it for punching holes in steel cans or anything too often.

Another catch from good 'ol Walmart.com - ColdSteel GI Tanto for $22

I will say the blade guard, or what seems to be the blade guard make the knife a bit awkward to hold; I feel as though the blade is "far" from the grip itself. Perhaps the guard is designed as such for whittling.
Again - I would like to mention I'm new to the knife/blade arena, so forgive me of any newbness

That's a nice one. I have one. Nice sheath and knife for the money, and just what you might need if you DID want to punch holes in cans or pry stuff. Yeah the harsh edges on the guard, squared off shape on surfaces, and the scales could use refinement, but then it wouldn't be under $25. Nice one to customize too. Definitely impresses as a no nonsense tool and not art.

I am looking at those MMHW blanks Ted is selling now to make some handles. But I might just end up ordering the LIL CUSS - which is what I really want.

Also as far as Cold Steel, the "Tactical" Katana Machetes look cool for like $45.

Cold Steel Royal Kuhkri Machete - $25
Good deal. They didn't skimp on the 1055 steel @ 22.54 ounces. These are interesting and made in South Africa. Decent convex grinds, but rough. Stropped off some fold-over on the edge and it is good to go.
