I've got a couple of those. They are......interesting.

Reading a bit on the history of the kukris, apparently the Nepalese think of them more as tools, instead of a weapon. And they make them from truck springs.

Got a bunch of quiet little Nepali refugee/immigrant men who sit in the back row at church. Their English is non-existent to poor but I sometimes wonder if they are subscribers to General Mattis' dictum (polite, professional, but...)

My go-to knife for several decades has been the Case Sodbuster.

Image

Simple, plain design, it's stood the test of time and continues to give yeoman service. There's one in my pocket right now. The smooth contour of the handle doesn't poke holes in my pants, and the steel in the blade is easy to sharpen and holds and edge for a long time.

There's a lot to like in a simple Case Sodbuster.

Kershaw Blur is my EDC. I have a few of them because I constantly misplace them. Maybe I should build a knife holder to put next to my key holder...

Recently picked up one of these to replace the cheap Chinese machete I had been keeping in my truck. It'll most definitely do the trick.

I bought one a few years ago, based on your recommendation. Yellow handle, of course. No complaints.

Domestic lt springs are 5160 generally, and make greak camp knives and big bowies, cheap tough and holds a good, not great edge.

I'm in a citified job, and don't have a whole lot of use for a large blade. However, I had carried an Old Timer for years, then started wearing a pouch with a Leatherman and a Mag-Lite when I was in the Army. Years later, I am back to carrying the Old Timer, but the first one I bought was made in China, like the one in this pic I stole. Not a BAD knife, but suffers from the usual China "workmanship." So I haunted Ebay for a while, and found a NOS 34OT for only slightly more than the Chinese version. Still in the box, with foam insert slightly stained from years of the oiled knife resting in the box. Now I'm a happy camper. It may not cut down trees (or even an angry Cub Scout), but for what I typically need a pocket knife for right now, it's great.
