Hello everyone. I'm a first time poster here but have been a reader for some years. I would like to buy a crooked knife blade so that I can make my own handle (cheaper and more fun) but I only want to buy one and I want it to be the right choice. I want to see if the crooked knife can become my favorite all-round tool in the bush, a versatile carving tool, and I wouldn't mind being able to carve some shallow spoon bowls out in a pinch, though I understand there are better tools for this such as hook knives and gouges.
So as I see it so far, my options are :
Make my own... anything else?
From those who have used the latest and greatest from these makers, which do you prefer and why? Which has the correct ergenomics for a bush tool?
Thanks and look forward to seeing what you guys think.
