Now That's a Knife
Aug 1st, 2018 at 4:57pm
 
I can never find a big enough survival knife. A while back a friend sold me this one. All I know about it is that it was hand made in the Philippines. Its blade is 12" and overall length is 18". I believe that it's hefty enough to lop someones head off. My search is over.

You could always try a kukri. 34cm long blade and feels great in the hand Cheesy

In the 80's I have to buy exactly the same knife. (it was not a handicraft) But I did not buy it.

The friend who rents my attic, Mike, has a Kukri. Last week I cleared an overgrown patch of my yard with it. I agree, it is a nice blade.

It's a nice knife too bad anything bigger then 2.5in is illegal to carry in your state. It's a shame.  I can carry my seax knife anywhere.  That has an 8in blade, and overall its 12in.

   If I'm walking the dogs around town I sort of pay attention to the law (sometimes).  If I'm camping or fishing I carry any knife I want.

It is. I really recommend the website I got it from: Tora Blades. They are always behind schedule and you'll have to wait months for it to show up, but they are just fantastic.
