    New Knife

    Sorry if this thread has been done to death.

    I have been reading up on a few posts and want to use the massive knowledge base here in this forum.

    My cousin recently borrowed my hunting gear for a trip and when he returned it today it was missing my Buck folding knife and my head torch.

    He assures me that both of these items were never there but I can guarantee they were.

    Iím just asking on here for some advice regarding a basic knife that would be suitable as an all around hunting knife. I donít have a massive budget so i am really looking for something practical that has a sheath I can fit on my belt that wonít break the bank. I know there are some beautiful knives out there but it might be an investment in a few more years when I am actually filling the freezer.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Mercator folder about $50 carbon steel razor sharp, always goes with me no matter what, I have some fancier knives but the mercator will do everything I need.
    The pretty knives are just a magpie thing......yes I am a self confessed magpie

    Jakewire, you are an amazing person. Thank you so much.

    If you are ever in Timaru let me know, I have some contacts and can organise hunts for different species or I can try to help you get onto some massive spawning rainbow trout in the winter.

    Very true, thank you both for your generosity. I really appreciate it and in the future will endeavour to pass on the same sort of goodwill that I received today
