    I don't know the exact terrain but even on flat ground that sounds like a quite a distance to me, hats of to the both of you.

    I carried 22kg on my last trip, which was way to much for me (I'm only 5'7" @65kg!). So I came back with calcaneal spur and couldn't hike much for the next 16 months, lol.

    I think 3,5" is the perfect size for a small do-everything-knife personally, but it depends on what other gear you take with you I guess. I only carried a wood stove to cook on so I needed to be able to do some wood-processing at least.

    One tip though, as soon as you get there buy some of this stuff:

    The mosquito there are relentless and this stuff keeps them away much longer than any Deet product I've tried. It's about 5 bucks for a tiny bottle and it lasts a long time, I still didn't manage to empty mine after 2 years of mosquito summers.

    Good tip about the mosquito repellant! Where can I find it?
    22 kg is indeed a lot to carry, thats why I try to go as light weight but comfortable as possible. I'm 62 kg so also a lightweight :D

    As you like your TRE, and the DPX is close, i'm guessing another Lionsteel? The new KUR?

    Just saw a picture of the ZT 0450cf on Instagram displayed at Shot Show. Sweet looking knife!

    Woah, I don't often meet some one that's lighter than I am. I guess that comes with the aging process as well :(

    You can get it at a lot of places. I've seen it at every ICA supermarket (largest supermarket chain in Sweden I believe), drugstores and I bought mine at a sporting good store. It comes in a deo-roller as well but I'm not sure if that's the same formula, I've only tried the little bottle because they're slightly less bulky to pack.

    That new 0450CF is good looking knife by the way. A bit small, but definitely good looking ;)

    When I was still deciding between a BM 710, Southard and 0452CF I thought the only thing missing with the 0452 was a black blade and titanium scale, I do hope they don't do a blackout version of the 0452 too now or I'd have to buy another one :rolleyes:
