I have a Fallkniven F1. It’s a laminated vg10 blade steel. I’ve put it to serious use in Canada and I’m a little disappointed in the vg-10 as it has a tendency to want to chip out sometimes. I think if I had to do it again I’d go with Bark River in Elmax steel. Made in the U.P. of Michigan.waderParticipantJanuary 26, 2017 at 2:08 amPost count: 265
Thank you all for the input. I’ve had a chance over the last couple days to put my hands on many of these knives. I think I found a winner today with the Tops b.o.b. bushcraft fieldcraft. Feels great in my hand and should work well for many applications.

Fine looking knife, I like the design and build materials. Made to be used for sure. 😀CRIA1576ParticipantFebruary 4, 2017 at 5:53 pmPost count: 582
Congrats Wader and that should be a very versatile and effective knife from gutting and skinning to batoning and feathering. Im sure you won’t be disappointed!fhgi99ParticipantFebruary 24, 2020 at 11:27 amPost count: 2
Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT), Cold Steel, and Benchmade all make suitable knives that would fit your functions. CRKT has some interesting serrations on a number of their knife models. I can’t remember what they’re known as. But if you are confused by choosing the knife then you should read the reviews of the knife. It will help you to choose best.Daniel-JParticipantFebruary 26, 2020 at 4:51 amPost count: 6
When I first started training, which was a long time ago, ordered in a real forge, they still exist, 5 knives for hunting. Since then, more than 10 years have passed and I only give them to sharpen as needed. Remember to consider handmade work sometimes, it can be much more durable.
