    This just arrived:

    Wanted a good basic belt knife... yes the sheath is crap but that is why I have several sheets of Kydex

    Cost including shipping was $6.64us

    Its no Puma but its a full tang 440c knife that if I lose it in the bush I wont burst into tears

    now to make a proper sheath and give it a tickle up on the whetstone

    Damn that is cheap. Looks useful.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeah I refuse to spend huge bucks on a knife when I know I am so hard on them.

    Also I reckon you can't beat good old 440c over some of these whizzy new "unobtainium" steels that are uber hard... and uber hard to resharpen when they DO finally dull especially if that is in the bush and all you have is a small stone or a smooth rock!

    If you want one:

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    yeah if one sells out there will always be more if you do a search for the same model. Just make sure they have decent feedback, I usually pass if it is less than about 95%.

    There are actually some very nice knives on aliexpress going for good prices
