So,after a couple days in different terrains,this is what i got,cut up a couple cardboard boxes,whittled a bunch of oak,pecan and maple[?] branches,cut som rope,and performed well,not a *real* carving type knife,although i do like the blade shape and grind,the handle is comforatable, but,about 3/4 of an inch too long IMO,the tassle it came with Had to go,all in all agood utility/camp backup blade.oh and my son in law cleaned two bass that he caught with it,they were tasty :)

Here's three good camping blades. A number 10 Opinel, a vintage billhook and a good old everything knife. All three obtained within the last few months to add to my collection of camping gear.

The Opinel is an amazing thing. So simple, so cheap and so easy to keep razor sharp.

The Billhook is a real tool. Much better at axe duties than an axe and capable of so much more. This one is pretty old and was probably hand forged out of a lump of red hot metal on an anvil by some guy with a big hammer and a handlebar mustache. A really useful thing to have along in case you have to create a nice comfy log cabin while waiting to be rescued from a desert island or something.

The Elite Force was just an impulse buy because it was on sale at about half price and I've never had a big stainless steel knife before so I was curious. I haven't used it much yet so I can't say how good or bad it is, it's just a knife.

I have my eye out for a vintage billhook, they are not very common in my part of the world but they look to me like they could put in some work :)
the heavy duty ones are Rare,i have a friend with an older one,that he wont part with.
