    The Cold Steel Vaquero XL has been my E.D.C blade for over 16 years. It’s a great all around knife with enough size to stand up to anything I may need to deal with. It sharpens easily and holds it well and I have no worries about trusting my life to it if needed.

    Buck 110 hunter. I’ve carried the same one since 1976. Still going strong!

    Gerber Sportsman II. I’ve carried this since the early 70’s. The blade has always opened without touching it with a “Bullwhip” style, down then up snapping the wrist up. I spent hours snapping blade out front, close turn it around and opening it blade down, no matter how I took it out of sheath (flap folded behind belt).

    Been using the Buck 110 since 1975, good hip knife, and I carry a buck old-time 3 blade for smaller work. Always used larger Bucks for big game and skinning. Borrowed other brands- a lot boke or would not hold up. Case Bowie great for Moose especially sternum & pelvic divide.
