Hey guys and girls,
I'm looking to branch out my small knife collection (mainly multi tools for IT work and a nice whitby lock knife). I currently don't own anything fixed blade or bush/survival oriented, and i'd love to! I once had a nice little opinel 8, but after lending it around a camp fire in africa it mysteriously disappeared.. ahem. I guess the kid that got hold of it is enjoying it much more than i ever would! i never got on with the clip system anyway.
So i've looked around, i see much praise for Mora kit, but i can't get over the plastic/rubberised handles, im a traditionalist and i love the Wood handle, leather sheeth combo. Looking at something on the lower price bracket if i can, im happy to spend £10, and im happy to spend probably up to £40.. if it's worth it and it'd last me. I've seen http://www.thebushcraftstore.co.uk/j...ife-3806-p.asp and i also like the look of the condor bushlore knife, but looking at user closeup pictures i'm not confident of the build quality.
I bought this for the mrs a while back, she loved my whitby lock knife: http://www.whitbyandco.co.uk/rangevi...=970&keywords=
seems to have stayed much sharper than my one, which is a grey version of this:
Anyway, looking for some suggestions, i cant find much in that price bracket, and i've not seen a concrete opinion of to what's the best in that price range.
