    This knife I have actually used when the SHTF...
    It is my Blackjack model 5 , that carried while in the Army and along on during four combat deployments.
    ( So I know it works...:D )

    knives.jpg Here are my SHTF knives. In reality, I'd probably only grab one. Which one?

    On the left is a custom slasher/skinner which I picked up at a show.
    Next is my Damascus drop tip, bone handled hunter
    Next is my Gerber Guardian II
    And finally, my Damascus Kukri

    If I could only take one, which one should it be?

    Lets see if we are thinking alike :)

    I'd go with the Damascus Drop tip with the antler handle...looks too cool not to use.
    Well that and a bit more general purpose than the others in my mind...

    I'm a snob long time. I bought an old Filipino "machete" back in the 70's for $19 very much like this'n here complete with a nice leather sheath. pretty awesome, balanced and sharp.
    It's my precious!

    Before I would have said my Tops 9" Anaconda: - can't seem to find a pic


    But now I'm in love with my Esee 6":

    I'd take an axe so I don't really need a chopper. If I did it would be this Kukuri from Nepal:

    And my always woods neck knife, my Rat3:

    Love my woodsman's pal!
    Can be used for a lot of things!
    There was a bad wind storm the day before my elk hunt that blew down a lot of trees. My dad has this spot he wanted to get to but the trees along the way blocked us. I asked him if he brought a hatchet or a saw and he said no and he was pissed thinking we would have to turn around. I said let me get my bag and i brought it out. at first he was skeptical since it wasn't really a hatchet and these trees were huge.
    Took us a bit but we were able to cut them all down and get to this spot.
    I said well i was surprised at what the woodsman's pal had accomplished.
    He turned and looked at me and said yeah because its a f****** survival tool.
    He rarely swears so i broke out laughing.

    Saved the day :). And we ended up getting a nice white tail.

    Oh I also use it to clear black berry bushes around ghost towns when my son and i go ghost town hunting.

    Very very versatile tool.

    Probably not the first choice, but not a bad one. Yeah it's a user not a display piece.
    The last job was cutting attic insulation.:eek: Worked great!
    First choice is a Estwing axe. Thanks for looking.
