    New here and first post but I wanted to tell Larry that he is over doing it.
    Now personally, I carry a Leatherman wave, Leatherman knife [with the screwdriver, can opener and carabeaner & belt clip] and a gerber neck knife in the pocket. On my keys i have two led flashlights.
    I'd carry more but my pants fall down..

    I guess it depends on what you think you will need for survival. I have a Kershaw D2 and a Kabar on the BOB. The D2 is like a small machete but thick enough to beat on or cut a fair tree down. I think a survival knife is something that is small and has as many uses as possible, ie: your wave. I like the Leatherman knives but I think the D2 is what you're looking for.

    well if im goin out for a long time i usually take my collection of knives , sharpenin them passes alot of time, they include 2 cold steel folding knives , 1 gerber folding knife , 2 of the earlier unnamed leatherman tools, 3 copies of the combat knife i invented, its 4' shark tooth blade coated in black teflon with a clip and safety built it , the special feature im very proud of is the opening device , i call it a flip knife , you flick your wrist and the blade pops out with a loud snap, like a legal switchblade, a few unnamed folders and a straight razor.

    Got any pics of those knives of yours? I'm always looking for something to add to the collection... [just don't tell the wife, she figured out I'm not really opening a butcher shop.]

    Yeah, I'd like to see your custom knives. I've got too many multitools as it is and probably 40 pocket knives [ including dads and grandpas] along with 8 or so machetes. We won't even get into the number of flashlights, lanterns and radios.

    The wife complained until I counted her shoes and jewelry boxes... now she just gives me "that look" when the ups truck pulls up.

    They are both Kabars. The bottom one is a MK2 that I've had since I was 13. I've taken it all over the world with me.

    The knife above is the New Age Kabar. I have not taken it anywhere. Yet. I won an ebay auction for it. Saved a bit of money.

    The flint knapped knife is what I call Caveman Kabars. I've made two and have given them away. The one I'm working on now is a bit bigger.

    Making the knives are kind of easy. I look through my stash of rock and find some that look like a knife blade. Then start knapping. I will use my deer antler hammer to get the rough form, then I will use my handy little river rock to further shape the blade. Then I will start flaking the blade and thinning out the area that will go into the handle.

    They are not as pretty as most out there but I can tell you one thing, they will last alot longer. The one shown, the back of the blade is a little over a half inch thick.

    I just finished a little dagger that I'm sending to a good friend.
