Have some of them. Dont ask my why, but I just love to sharpen knives, I have a couple of sharpening stones and love spending some time with my knives getting them real sharp. I have a knife that was a present my grandfather brother gave me, real old thing, but nice and still good enough. I have it stored in my gun case, and dont use it any more, I am keeping it as a souvenir. I use a regular hunting knife with fixed blade, dont remember the brand, but it is light and very sharp.
Looking forward to get this one: Gerber LMF II Survival Knife Coyote Brown 22-01400

I have used a Kershaw folding drop point lockback since the mid-80's, but bought a Outdoor Edge Swingblade over the summer. Used it on an elk and deer this year and love it.

i would say this is my favorite to date.

i'm with you misfire. i make my own also.

you do some really nice work. reminds of of a dozier in some ways. they look very ergonomic. i bet they're good in the hand in just about any grip.

have you tried any of the new CPM D2? you'll love it, better performance, and easier to work with

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
