As the title suggests. Budget is $200 and under, so modest/utilitarian.
Take a look at Smoky Mountain Knife Works in Tennessee online.
A lot of nice looking knives, but those prices seem way too cheap to have any quality.
How big of a blade?
I like the Ontario Raider. Just wish it had a nicer handle, like wood or antler. I think that would ve the size I'm looking for.
Was watching Crocodile Dundee.
I like the Buck Frontiersman but it seems a little small for a bowie.
So for now I went with the Ontario Raider: https://www.amazon.com/Ontario-Spec...qid=1546048415&sr=1-2&keywords=ontario+raider
and the Mossy Oak 14inch:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EYCEA5A/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A3P56LYOG94570&psc=1
We'll see how they measure up. It's a start.
You can get 2 sweet Kabars with carbon steel blades and have change left over
Just got this one in. So far it seems legit. We'll see.
Careful, kid- you'll cut your eye out!
The Ontario Raider . Just got one. Very nice.
“Was watching crocodile Dundee”
MossyOak ? Who makes blades for MossyOak?
I’ll probably only need the one guess...China
Yup, lol. At $25 you bet.
The Ontario Raider arrived today. Holy crap is ut substantial! The difference in the two is blatantly obvious, lol. The MossyOak has a neat old school look. It has a stainless steel blade (not sure what kind of stainless), is full tang and has a wooden handle with brass finger guard and pommel. It is made in China. The Ontario is more tactical looking, I'm not sure off hand of the blade material, but it is powder coated, synthetic handle material with good grip, is full tang, is much heavier and has a much thicker spine. It is made in the USA.
I think the MossyOak will make an excellent and interesting steak knife or even a kitchen knife. The Ontario is one I will take outside camping and what not.
This should arrive friday
I was digging around in the back of one of my closests and I came across an old ammo box that I was storing some old knives in. I had completely forgoten that I had this little beauty. I’ve had it for more than 30 years.
It's a beauty! Definitely hold on to that baby.
Thanks. Yeah it’s not going anywhere. I bought it off a very good friend of mine when we were teenagers. Unfortunately he is no longer with us so, the next person to take ownership of it will be my son, who happens to also collect knives himself.
That is a heck of a piece, @S&W Fan.
Thanks, the Camillus knife factory was in the neighboring town where we grew up.
