To commemorate this nice new forum, lets talk about what knife you take with you on your wilderness outings. Any type will do, fixed blade or folder, pricey or not or homemade.
Here's what I recently picked up for camping, a KaBar Becker BK-2 Campanion and a KaBar Becker BK-11 "necker". Both of which are strong, hardy carbon steel fixed blades that can be used for all sorts of outdoor tasks. Some folks like to use the BK-2 to "baton" chunks of firewood to make excellent kindling for campfires.
Before picking these guys up I would usually bring a Victorinox swiss army knife or my girlfriends Mauser swiss army style multitool.
So let's see what you've got!
