    Thats just too tough a choice

    I have two combos that are most likely

    Cegga / BR axe
    PFK (Stu Mitchell / BR knife)
    Trevor Ablett Pocket Knife
    Silky Pocket Boy Saw


    OR

    Lee Reeves Nessmuk Axe
    Bernie Garland Bushcrafter
    Singeblister Hornet small knife
    Laplander Saw

    On knife only of course its "Beater" and "Biter"

    For me, it's:

    Skookum Bush Tool
    Gransfors SFA
    Laplander saw
    and, if I'm feeling like it, a Gransfors Mini hatchet

    All a bit mainstream, I'm sorry to say...

    I've got too much choice, so I take what I feel like at the time, plus a few spares if it's a meet!

    It can't be the knife - it must be this ugly old thing you like

    For me:

    Cegga or SFA
    Bernie Garland Damascus bushy, WS Woodlore, Shing or Stu M knife (a choice)
    UKPK or Eka Masur folder
    Laplander
    Stu M Baby bushy, Stu B or Aly bladed Jedadiah neck knife

    Though I do have several other choices, I'm a bit of a 'holic when it comes to edged tools (must be from my late dad who collected (and used) engineering tools).

    Nice one Shep, good to see you are still making things.
    Is that the same knife from the Bushcraftsman course?

    Yup, it's the same one going strong, though it's on it's second sheath. I've made quite a few since, but this one's mine for keeps (I've given up having any shame in the lack of design originality!)

    I regularly use the following:

    Gransfors Hunters Axe
    All black Falkniven F1 in Rapidboy sheath
    Laplander saw

    If space is an issue it becomes:
    Gransfors Wildlife Hatchet
    Jojo neck knife
    Hand chain saw thingy

    Some mighty tasty equipment in those photos!

    For me it's:-

    GB Axe - SFA or Wildlife depending on mood/which one I find first.
    WS Micarta Woodlore, Helle Eggen or one of many Frosts, again depending on mood, where I'm going, what I'm doing etc.
    A SAK with a saw, ie, Farmer, Huntsman, Hiker etc.
    Bahco folding saw, like a Laplander but Blaze Orange handle rather than green and a shiny blade.

    So many look, so few see.
