Anybody got opinions on knives (pocket/handy-sized), personal fav's etc as the title says, a good all-rounder ? Just interested.

( I know what your opinion will be to that chilli, keep it to yer self :11:)

I've got a Victorinox multi-tool which goes everywhere with me and that's got two good blades, one slightly serrated. They keep a good edge and I've caped out a few foxes with that one. I don't know how much they are over here as I got mine on the continent but they'd be similar to a Gerber or Leatherman I suppose. I also keep a Victorinox Swiss Champion handy.

As for a fixed blade I bought a Cudeman last year and it's been good

I did use a Smith and Wesson (silver, part serrated, 2nd from left top row)

and that was good until I tried to cut acrylic glass with it :11:

:good: few good sites there [BANNED TEXT] , worth a gander. Trawling through eBay there, seems to be a shit-load to choose from. Bought a wee handy one on there few months back , very similar to that Smith and Wesson not to bad.

I do like those thumb open jobbies. Very handy. Those S&W are 440 steel too.

I dont know if you lads can get them back home, but the ONLY knife company i would get knifes from now is Cold Steel...they are the BEST.
I butchered a WHOLE elk with a Mini Bushman, and they sell all kinds of stuff, spears, swords, tomahawks, knifes etc.
I got all my mates onto them over here and thats all they will use know. The Bushman and the Mini Bushman are great...they cost rough between 5-15 quid, and if you break it, send it back and you will get another free!...they sound crap at that price, but they are amazing!
Kye..

Tim, I got myself a leathermen wave off my old man....he got it from work off the storeman for nowt :D ...Like you say quality...a lot better than the old original leatherman...how do you go about sending them back do they need a receipt with them when sent? Nothing wrong with mine just handy to know.. ;)

Lucky them frosts are good knives, all the riggers used to use them offshore..cheap with a nice blade and rubber grip... :)
