    Oh nice, how is it? I have the BB forum spyderco knife in Elmax, but it's only had light use so far.

    Elmax has become my new favorite steel... Before it was s30v... The only thing I've noticed is that Elmax blades are typically not thick... I think something about durability I'm not sure... But they hold their edge for a long time

    I know it's dirty. Was clearing some brush, and will continue after more coffee.

    Anyway, this is my campset. The little SAK takes a great field edge (I hate trying to get those "super steels" sharp in the field). The Junglas does all the heavy lifting.

    Thanks! The sheath was made by Jim Smith of Cotati Leather. He sells them on Etsy, along with other styles. It's well-made and has held up nicely.

    I have a TOPS CUB that I really like. Its pretty beefy and can handle feather sticks, baton work, and some food prep. I also usually bring an old lewtherman for the pliers when fishing and a SAK, usually a cadet. I also have a bahco saw. [​IMG]

    The CS Finn Hawk and Finn Wolf are my new go-to blades for hiking, camping and all-around outdoor adventuring.

    Usually an ESEE 4, a Vic Parachutist, and a Kukri. Just bought this Kukri (haven't received it yet) and am going to give it a try next time I'm headed into the woods:

    - leatherman Supertool 300

    In my pack

    - Bahco folding saw for processing wood about 2" to 6"

    Tomahawk, maybe a couple of Fiskars axe, Silky Saws, two different sizes of Kukri. Regular knives, Cold Steel and or Becker. I don't have any pictures to post. The Silky Saws and bigger knives are the most used. I'm disabled and can't hike any more but I get out with a 4x4 truck. If I was going to hike/backpack this list would be trimmed down a lot.

    Just got back from 4 days in the White Mountains, brought an m4 para2 and a folding fiskar saw since it was lighter than my silky saw. Usually only bring bigger stuff for day hikes or over nights. 35lb pack is enough weight for this sorta thing. [​IMG]
