    That and the handle is filled with lots of survifal goodies, I will refer to the Harbor freight survival knife once again.
    built-in compass, sewing kit, safety pins, buttons, fishing line with hook, 6 matches with fire starting paper, lanyard and sheath. I am disappointed that there is no stone in the sheath. The best part is you can put a nice long stick in the empty handle and make a sweet spear for hog hunting etc. Two of these in your pack you should be good for any situation.
    Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.

    And as soon as the spear hits the hog, the blade breaks off in him and he runs off wwith it. But I guess thats why you put 2 of them in your pack ?

    One is none. Two is one. I'm with you Randal. It's really all about stab placement. I generally try to stab a hog in the ear so it goes straight to the brain. They generally fall like a rock right where they stand. If they don't fall then you have a long spear you can use to just gently push them over. Kinda like cow tipping. It's an interesting aside that the Harbor Freight Knife happens to be the knife of choice for Anaconda hunters in Florida and around the world. It's another interesting aside that Anacondas are on my Florida list.


    EDIT: Buhahahaha. I was typing when you posted. Great minds and all.

    I carry like 3-4 knives on me at all times: and the two that are always the same are, A victornox swisarmy knife with two blades, a can opener, cork screw, saw, tooth pick, and tweezers. and the other one is a leathersman with all the same stuff plus pliers and a flashlight. The other knives I would cary with me is: A $5 wal-mart hunting knife, a multi-tool, and the CRKT RSK MK5 knife. I also carry a pocket/key-chain knife sharpener.

    Edit: Oh almost forgot I also carry a waterproof flint and steel striker

    See I pay attention I noticed in the reviews the blades are apt to fall out of the handle so I say carry two. Plus you never know when you will brake the fishing string and loose your hook... so an extra hook never hurts. I say for a few dollars more land a 80's model Rambo it comes with same equipment but also an awesome cable saw with key ring handles and a quality aluminum oxide sharpening stone on the fleather sheath this doubles your shelter building ability by at least -50%, fish catching and fire making by the same I would guess.

    Just saw something about this one I thought was strange ! I got out my copy of the Navy Seals Survival Training manual and was looking through it and noticed they have a picture of the Harbour Freight 8" survival knife it it as an example of a fixed blade survival knife. You would have thought the Navy could afford a better one to put in their book !

    I think the HF version is a knock off, of someone else's knives...as I have seen others for a whole lot more money that "looked" the same.......or some one is really ripping off the customer.

    That is pretty funny though.........the Navy's version is most likely $800 bucks......LOL

    FYI
