  • in the market for a Knife and Mechede

    I am currently in the market for a survival knife and a machede, but cant make up my mind what I want, or what might be best. Not Interested in a hollow handle knife because im looking for somthing very solid..... When it comes to a Machede I need somthing I can cut through thick brush or chop wood if I have to, but yet keep a sharp blade. I also would like these items to have well built and durable sheaths. I am up for any suggestions you may have!

    Check out the " A major secret" post. Probably one of the best knives money can buy.

      Also consider the Woodmans Pal as IMHO it is much more useful than a machete...

      Those knives BBC mentioned are a great option... Cold Steel makes a version as well...

      I'd look @ the Gerber LMFII and the Cold Steel Recon Tanto...

      Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
      beat you to death with it because it is empty.

        yes I have looked at those kukri and have considered it istead of a regular machede, but I was kinda sceptical when it came to the curved blade when it comes to cuting through brush and wood.... maybe because I have never used one.... I was thinking mabe it would be better for combat or buchery?

                      I second the woodmans pal. I was given my grandfathers, it is the older style with the stacked leather handle and the metal ring style hand guard. He used for heavy clearing and now so have I. It is a great chopper and the brush hook works awsome.

                        You may have something valueable there Omegaman. I have a book that says that the original military issued is considered a rare find. :eek:

                          The way that the kukri is made gives it great power in chopping and defense. It is a tool that has been proven by history. I have the woodsman pal and I love it and it could be a defense weapon in a pinch but not like the kukri. I don't have a spax but I want one, I can't comment on it's performance.

                            If you are looking to reach out and touch someone with an edged instrument i suggest an entrenching tool with the blade sides sharpened. Nice long reach almost as good as a sword.

                            I have the woodsman pal also for chopping brush but the spax looks intriguing.
                            Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggie" while picking up a big stick.

                              Actually, the SPAX looks friggin' SICK....but I already have a WP and don't see the need for another tool, since it works quite well.
