I hang out so much in the Swiss Army Knights, I forgot how many other great topics there are.
Here's my #4 Grohman, bought around 1980/81.
And like Nix said it's a beast, a real chopper that could replace a hatchet

I always loved the idea of a Grohman, but could never quite justify the price of one over here.

I think my latest is a survival knife too.
Ready to tackle just about anything.

As with some others here, it'll most likely be on stand-by for most of the time, but with the first valid excuse to take it on a hike, I will :D

Let us know how it goes, Nick :cheers: I have been back and forth about getting one of these since they came out :ahhh

I have a survival knife that's named after an outdoorsman. Bear Grylls? Nope. Les Stroud? Nope. Nessmuk!  :whistle:

Just stumbled on this forum and after introducing myslef in the Newbe forum I noticed this thread. Great discussion about survival knives! After a few decades of military service and using all kinds of knives, the “old camp style” knife like the Buck 119, theKa-Bar, the USAF pilot survival knife and the British MoD survival knife worked for me the best. These all are easy to sharpen, inexpensive and can be used for most field tasks (though the Brit MoD knife is more like a shovel and is heavy...).

Overall great thread with some even better knives. I am curious what everyone's opinion is of the tracker style knives. These knives were featured in the movie The Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro. I have to say that the look of the knife is intriguing, but is it functional?

I dont have One but I have handled it..I say Yes but that is a Knife that is a very polarizing One with Folks..My Take is it does what Tom Brown wanted it too if he could "Only Take One"..Will it Skin Gut Chop Dress Out Game perfectly? No but it will perform the Tasks he envisioned "Adequately" when need be..The Saw Blade was meant to help with Notching and as a Wire Breaker...I too lust after One not really to Use but because I loved the Movie

My main/only outdoor fixed blade is a skinner style blade I won in a GAW over at BF aboot a decade ago. It's a nice knife, 3-1/4 long, buffalo horn scales (matches my first GEC, a #25), 1095 steel, and a brown leather sheath. It's even nice after I dropped it on its tip lol. I also have a black Izula, packed away somewhere.
