>no knife thread
Maybe it's for the better but I'm starting one

I'm looking for a good, small carving knife. Something that's easy to handle and can get in those tighter spaces. So far I've narrowed it down to an Ahti Tikka and a Roselli Grandmother knife after a small amount of research. I'm leaning toward the Ahti since they made my current knife and it's excellent quality, but the Roselli seems more what I'm looking for in terms of the blade geometry. Anyone have any input on this? Price is comparable (+/-1$) so I'm not factoring it in

pic related, the Ahti

They have calmed down for a while now, which it's ok because I remember a time we had like 9 to 12 knife threads here.

I was really into knives but it kinda went away as I started going /out/ more and realizing that a knife is a secondary tool compared to backpack, footwear and so on.
>>
>>1108485
Backpacks and footwear aren't as macho and cool as knives though anon! We don't want to talk about how far you can walk, it's about how many bears/coyotes/homeless dudes you can baton away from your campsite

i never was big into knifes but being out killed it even more. at first i was happy i got a 60€ gerber as a present. but later realised i use my 10€ hultafors 10 times more and it offers all i need and want. the leatherman as a multi tool is the only exception.

>>1108952
well if you want something for carving that's one of the better options. There's also the mora eldris, although it's a little too wide for getting into tight places (though still very handy to use).

Mora also makes a bunch of woodcarving knives.

Wew, thanks for the tip anon. Their 120 seems to be exactly what I'm looking for

How would the Buck 632 Mesa hold up as a bushcraft knife? I don't plan to use it to baton, but anything else is fine. I keep seeing that it's supposely a hollow grind but I see it as a sabre grind, can anyone confirm what kind of grind it has?

It's not about utility, it's about the cool factor.

I have a knife that has served me well for years, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to make pic related just for the aesthetics.

The problem is I'm not sure what steel to use and I'm don't have my shop here at school.
>>
>>1109159
Sure, to each their own. I just transitioned a fair share away from it. I hike and camp, so my SAK it's what I carry. Sometimes, if I know I'm going to play with wood I carry my mora instead.
In the future I will eventually buy a good small fixed knife that I can use for /out/ but mostly for EDC.

For what purpose? For general use, looks too long and wide, for skinning there is better knives.

I mean it's metal and it's sharp, it's probably going to do what you want knife to do, but I wouldn't bother.

What's your sharpening method of choice while /out/?
The small Arkansas stones on amazon look neat, ~$10. Are there any other good cheap sharpening stones? I'm not paying $30 or $60 for some set of tiny rods or whatever else gets peddled.
And pull through sharpeners suck.

General use in the woods besides batoning

I know that there are better ones out there, but the price is right, I like the way the handles look too

that brand makes some of the best Arkansas stones, a soft one is probably the most useful for maintaining an edge and you can strop on the pouch. Eze-lap makes nice diamond stones around $10, I've had good luck with them, plus many of them have a fish hook groove on them.

Blind, I can recommend pic related. Full flat grind, 1/8'' thick, 3'' kephart blade, broomstick handle with micarta scales.

As Mors would put it, not too big, not too small, the ultimate edc belt knife. Around $130.

LT Wright Next Gen - basically a scaled down Genesis, which (the genesis, not the next gen), by popular consensus, has replaced the TOPS BOB as the quintessential bushcraft knife. It's easily one of my top 3 main belt knives, and in my top 5 fixed blades.

here's another. TLIM Bushcrafter II (www.tlim.net) - one of the countless variations of a 4'' drop point like Ray Mears' woodlore.

Just got this guy for less than $2.
Made beyond the wall.

Supposed to be an Electrician's knife
for chopping through cable or for breaking putty from windows.
Looks like the old English Hacking Knife, but a much thinner blade.
Thin enough to actually function as a knife.

Still sturdy enough for opening paint cans, prying bent nails out of lumber etc.

Unspecified stainless, but ran it over an 80 grit diamond, then finished with a 400 grit diamond and the edge has held up, even when batoned through a few sections of power-cord.

A quick PVC pipe sheath, and
makes a decent /out/ knife as far as I'm concerned.

Worth picking one up for the toolbox and the car too.

They're good but need work on the edge from the factory.
Convexing the whole bevel works well.

And filing down the lower guard halfway and the top guard completely will make it a better /out/ knife.

anon, this is /out/, not /mallninja/

the day ka-bar is a good knife, the world will fucking end.

This is objectively a shit knife for "out" - too long, too thick, bad geometry, pointless handguard, poorly constructed.

In this timeline, knives like the Ka-Bar were extremely popular with outdoorsmen even before the turn of the last century.
The pattern is the archetypal hunting knife of the 20th century.

Guess Mors was talking out of his ass when he said the kabar was no good, and they only used it because of all the cheap milsurp lying around after ww2.

Hell, a condor nessmuk is about 193737940736 times better than "muh reen knyfe" for actual outdoor stuff.

You could get a case sodbuster, and you'd still be better off.

Mors has an opinion that is relative and subjective just like anybody else's.

If you are going to criticize a knife because it was readily available for a low price then you should apply the same logic to the Mora.

None of the above chabges the facts; for several decades before WWII, Ka-Bar type knives were the most popular /out/ blade by far.

The difference is the rambo knife was a fad, tgat came about in a decade where /out/ism was substantially lower than preceding years.

Hey friends, I was doing some cleaning in my basement and found this old-ass knife down there. Based on some research I'd say it's anywhere from 45-65 years old, and I want to clean it up. There's a bunch of gunk in the liners, which is no problem, but the smaller of the 2 blades (without the clip) is a motherfucker to get open and is way too eager to get closed again. Any tips on how to ease it up?

You can buy from anywhere you want.

They will sign for your package, repackage it if need be, then remail it with another carrier.
Sometimes it's DHL, but most often a local carrier.

Sometimes they charge you for repackaging but not always.

MyUs can hold your mail in their warehouse and combine the shipping (for a fee).

Makes it actually worthwhile to buy cheap stuff like Old Hickory or big knives like the CA machetes.

I get the feeling that they ride the whole "steel type isn't very important" train and although you get somy nice knives made from 400 series steel I kinda feel betrayed when I pay 80€ for a 440a knife when the american gets you a nice 1095 or 1095 CroVan blade with nice heat treat for the same price.

Because small, easily pocketable, and cut fast.

Used to have a Spyderco medium stone, but broke because ceramic.
Didn't cut too fast either.

Now have the 320/1000 diamond. Cuts fast.
Most of the time I only use the 1000 side. 1000 doesn't feel that fine on diamond until you hit it with a strop.

The fine side on the Norton is supposed to be something like 400, but it puts a good polish when broken in.

I hope this doesn't post vertically. I rotated it in my gallery.
I got it in the FFL. It was 2017 when I got it but whatever, the other dudes with the 2017 models had the center cut out. It made cutting meat or thread a bitch. So I traded mine for a 2016 model from a dude in SIA. I got medically discharged myself and kept it. Haven't used it since, don't really want to.

I use one as my camping knife, it's not bad but there are better knives out there.
it takes a bit to get it sharp but it does hold it's edge. the cross guard fucking sucks and plan on hacking it off along the spine. the pommel is good for pounding tent pegs and nails ect. they do work great for batoning though don't hold the handle too tight, I have seen lots of posts from people who have broken their knives this way. the handle is a little round and slippery for my dry hands, I added this leather to help with grip and indexing and it works quite well. you'll want to remove a spot of the coating on the spine for your fire striker

I bought mine because a friend swore by his and didn't do my own research, it's not bad but I would do it differently next time

how cucked are you by your country legislation, /knife/? here in Spain you get absolutely fucked if they catch you on the city/town/even your car with anything over 11cm blade, anything automatic, or double edge

anything +11cm will get you a big joocy fine going /out/ too, otherwise you're good but they'll probably still ask a lot of questions if they see you with a bushcraft knife instead of the regular shitty folding knife, cause "obviously" the only thing you would need a knife for in the outdoors here in spain is to slice the tortilla

for hunting you can carry whatever you need, but only while the activity lasts and with the pertinent hunting license at hand
>>
>>1115201
that's insanity.
A big stick is more dangerous than a knife in most cases

What constitutes a knife? what about an unsharpened piece of flat stock with a handle?
A piece of wood carved into the shape of a knife? what about a plastic knife?
How about a big sharp chunk of flint?

In the US, that law would almost immediately go to the supreme court after someone got fined for having something that would be argued isn't a knife

In Canada we have no restrictions on length as long as you can justify it as a tool. What you can't have here is anything that is switch or spring operated (torsion bar like in Kershaw knives do not count as a spring), you can also not have a butterfly knife. other than that it's all fair game as long as it's a tool and not a weapon.
>>
>>1115201

Sounds like I got lucky on my last stay, no checks whatsoever.

The limit here (Germany) is 12cm, also knives that can be openend with one hand have to be carried in your backpack or something similar.

Butterfly knives and similar are banned.

>knives that can be openend with one hand have to be carried in your backpack

Someone intending to stab someone will keep the knife in their pocket anyway, and people who follow the law won't be able to access it in the event someone tries to mug them.

Is the point of the law to prevent self defense?

Portubro here. Basically you can carry anything fixed or folding with up to 10cm blade without needing a justification as long as isn't double edge, automatic or a balisong. You aren't allowed anything hollywoodesque either, that includes throwing stars and knives concealed as random objects. Anything bigger than 10cm you need a specif purpose like camping, job or something like that. Pretty cucked. It's not like a criminal will ever care what the law says but you gotta give the general public some false sense of security.

Its against the law to carry a knife in public for everyone except if youre like a carpenter/have a legit reason to use it for your work or if you use a kitchen knife at a picnic.
You can not carry a knife for the sole reason of selfdefense.
Any of these result in a big fine/up to 6months in prison.

Other sharp objects that are obvious weapons, like: brassknuckels, shuriken,stilettoknifes, swords and butterflyknifes are forbidden to own for ppl under the age of 21.
If you get caught with one of those youll get an even bigger fine and up to 1 year in prison.

However i live in a small town up in the cold north and fucking everyone carry a knife around here, its such an usual EDC so noone cares.
>>
>>1116462
I found the same thing. They're nice knives and you can use them for carving, but you'll just have to use them moreso for shaving rather than slicing out chunks. If you're going to do any amount of carving I'd suggest getting something with a thicker blade, and a better handle without a locking mechanism to get in the way

I always wondered why people buy expensive knives when chink ones are really cheap, stuff like Sanrenmu and Ganzo.

After actually using them, and seeing how bad is the edge retention, now I understand.

I get really mad using a knife that isn't razor sharp. So what budget folding knife would you suggest me? Maybe on the 30 bucks range, 50 tops.

Something that I can also pack on my fishing bag would be nice.

Kukri are great. I love mine. But you gotta get a proper kukri. As it is ment to be a big heavy chopper. Nothing smaller than 8 inches and nothing overly light.

>You need to get into the "super" steels to get any noticable difference.

no, you don't. Pic related. 1095 steel, with edge retention that laughs at super steels.

Having a very good heat treat, with the right geometry (means using very little force to actually cut) works a lot better, than the steel itself.

Case in point - I recently did some chopping with my scandi grind lt wright (a few planks that needed to go from "square" to "sharp enough to stick in the ground" during a recent HFT shoot, and chopping was the expedient way to do it) - knife was still paper-cutting sharp afterwards (and by "paper-cutting sharp" I mean cutting standard post-it notes slowly, and with minimal force).

sure. Carving through a bunch of sticks is one thing, indiscriminately chopping with no concern for the edge is another.
>>
>>1120137
That doesn't sound like anything spectacular to me. Even the cheaper steels hold a usable edge for a long time.

Most complaints about edge holding are down to lack of sharpening skill. People tend to mistake the burr for the edge.
My Okapi which is 1050 steel at low 50s hardness holds a decent edge.

I've taken down multiple saplings with a cheap machete and had the edge remain sharp enough to shave arm hair.

Question for folding knives users.

Do you like tactical or classic stuff? Why?
>>
>>1120227
Classic stuff just because ... well I simply like it. Maybe some romanticising or something like that dunno. Tactical stuff also invokes pictures of mall ninjas and wannabe operators. Classic knives make me think of no nonsense down to earth guys. Maybe it's got to do something with how I wanna be percepted? Really makes me think ...
>>
>>1120227
Classic stuff.

I don't carry a knife daily, is not something you see people doing around here.

I carry one on the countryside or doing /out/ stuff. Since I don't use them for heavy duty tasks, and most of the times I use them for eating/food prep, I'd rather use something like an Opinel or a k55k to cut cheese or a steak instead of a Paramilitary 2.

And personally, I like more the classic looks.
>>
>>1120158
you can cut saplings with a fingernail
>>
>>1120047

I like the shorter craftline blade size the most for utility tasks but the companion's longer blade is handier for food related stuff. Get one in stainless if you're gonna use it for fruit or fishing, carbon steel gives fruit an iron taste until it's heavily patina'd.
>>
>>1120227
What do you mean by tactical? I like g10 handles but I don't like crazy grinds nor coated blades.

Wanting to buy my boy a knife for his 8th birthday. He likes whittling, but we've just started going rabbit hunting together too. Should I get him an Opinel No.6 for being good at whittling, or a Svord Peasant Mini for being a decent skinning profile?

And while I'm posting, any recommendations for a cheaper air rifle that still has enough power for rabbits while being decently accurate? All of the "youth" models I've seen are only about 500fps which is far too anemic. I'm hoping for something at about 700+fps.

I forgot the steel, but it's a higher carbon steel, very sharp

It was a custom job, came out perfect
BOB for scale

>>1121620
Do you edc it, lad?
>>
>>1121625
It's my EDC, I live in a relatively rural area so carrying a fixed blade isn't out of the ordinary
>>
>>1121635
Pretty pretty nice then, friendo.

Benchmade 535 shits on those specs, except for price and simplicity, but is worth it IMO for axis lock. Axis lock <3!

How do bayonets cope?

I need a knife for hunting/camping, but it seems a bit over excessive.

they don't, really.

A bayonet is made for stabbing people - that severely impacts their cutting performance. Also, being purpose-built to be mounted on a rifle (like the AK bayonet is) doesn't do much good for ergonomics.

Pic related has great ergonomics (seriously, this has the most comfortable handle I have ever used), and for a general-purpose hunting/camping knife it is perfect.

I wouldn't recommend it, though, unless you have money to burn, as it's $240 - you can get a good hunting/camping knife for much closer to $100 or less. Some recommendations:

LTWK Bushcrafter HC
LTWG Genesis/GNS/Next Gen
ESEE 3 hm
ESEE RB3
TOPS Scandi Trekker
Falkniven F1
Cold Steel Master Hunter
Condor Bushlore
Mora Kansbol
Something from Helle, Ahti, Kauhavan Puukkopaja, etc.

In general - you want a 3-4 inch blade (5 at the outside), spear point or drop point (nessmuk is ok too), 1/8 inch thick, scandi or full flat grind, simple handle with no guard (or only the lower guard) and no deep finger groves. Again - see pic related - this handle is nothing short of amazing.

Also - you don't want your handle too long (the JX2 is borderline), or with any sort of "skullcrusher" grip - not if you like your own ribs (doing chest pull cuts will leave your ribs bruised if the handle is sticking out too much).

Thanks for the good post, will check out the list.

Do you have any recommendations on machetes and similar?
>>
>>1121852
Not him, but you can't go wrong with Tramontina machetes, cheap and effective.

I've used an Ontario before, worked out well, and heard good things about Cold Steel machetes, definitely exotic, just never used one myself.

I'm glad I took your advice guys and bought the Mora instead of some skeletonized knife.

Now the family of knives I'm actually going to use is complete, pic related.

I got the inox version because fishing is sadly the only /out/ activity I do. Flashy color would help at night and I have to try if it floats. Also the sheat isn't that bad, but the retention isn't spectacular.

A bayonet will work. I mean there are better options. But most modern bayonets where are ment to double as a utility/ combat knife. Are they as good as a regular dedicated fixed blade. No. Will it work. Yes.
>>
>>1122367
Don't be meanie to anon, he bought a knife and is happy with it so it's all good.
>>
>>1121801
if you have the rifle to go with the bayonet then sure, why not.
if you don't have the rifle then why would you go for a bayonet?

if you just want something with a military look / feel you have better options like a ka-bar like >>1115167 though they are still not the best choice over all
>>
Fixed blade edc
>>
>>1122367
Do you think i care?
It will cut through flesh in the event of an emergency just the same.
Fuck off faggot

>Bradford guardian 3
Literally my favourite knife.

>Tfw can't find one in M390 in Europe
I'm in unemployed now otherwise would have bought one if I had find it.
>>
>>1121801
Bayonets are hard chromed and not meant to e sharpened. So the answer is a solid no.

>kitchen knives for kitchen duty

seems about right f a m

>>1121687
The Bugout is also $50 more expensive

Truly, /out/ knife and gear threads are better than /k/'s

I recently got a Zero Tolerance 0909 to replace the edc Kershaw Leek I lost /out. It's a fucking sweet knife. A little bulky in my pocket but overall I'm extremely happy with what I got for $160.
>>
>>1120647
I'm the poster who switched from a leek to a ZT above, and I know your pain. The leek is really nice, easy to carry and not fancy unless you wanna pay double for the fancy factor. That's why I went with the 0909. It's not frilly. It's a solid, simple design. But the leek wasn't quite up to task for what I want to use it for. having moved to CO this year I wanted something bigger and more sturdy than the leek.
>>
Do we like multitools here? Got my Leatherman Surge today, the scissors are really nice, but they're pretty stiff to lock in, I originally thought I got a faulty set because the spring didn't engage. After opening it a few dozen times it's smoothed out a bit though.
>>
>>1122643
>Zero Tolerance 0909
Cool knoife- It would be even better if it didn't had that swedge and ball bearings.

>having more lose parts for no reason
Even to this day I still can't comprehend why would they use ball bearings in anything other show piece knives. Smoothness is a meme for office warriors and kiketube reviewers-
>>
>>1122664
It's a pretty nice addition. I have small hands and got used to torsion bars from kershaw. Admittedly, the swedge is dumb, but it doesn't detract anything for me.

I'm new to higher end knives, so I'm curious what the issue is with the bearings. Even if they wear out it's fixed free.

Emphasis on "reason", which is up to the police man to decide.
Actually the law was introduced with this wording with the intent to be confusing, allowing the police to confiscate knives on known criminals on hunches and drunks.
Obviously this throws the principle of equality to the law out of the window but the guy who wrote the law is a very popular tv-personality and a law-professor and he says what ever he wants so he's loved by everyone.
He's also a drunk, anyway...
The police is not the end of the story, first of all they normally need a strong suspicion of illegal activity to conduct a pat down, the suspected crime needs to be sever enough to carry a jail sentence. There are exceptions to this rule but they are rare.
Then, even if they do find a knife, you are still allowed to request "law-room" (time to consider the law) before accepting anything, such as a fine.
If you do, it's 99% certain they will think of other things to do and piss off.
If they do not, they will call you back and let you know they are pressing charges and then you'll be entering the courtrooms (which is totally unlikely in Sweden 2017 for a small knife).
The courts are not automatically going by the polices interpretation of the law, there's a good chance they will buy your bullshit story of how you intended to prepare an apple or you were just carrying the knife from A to B and what ever.
But all of this is just hypothetical, because the police aren't randomly searching people on the streets.
They have to know you buy first name and you need to be the type of guy who knows them by first name and usually end up walking the streets in the night with an axe under your jacket, on your way to a black club to settle old disputes.
But even then...it's a good chance they will just tell you to go home and sleep it off.
>>
>>1122641
I think people here actually use their knives.
>>
>>1115267
holy shit, did you carve the knife from a block of wood using that spoon?
Nice work, anon
