I know they're back ordered but that can't be right...5 years?

Right now the Ray Mears online store has no ETA for regular woodlore knives but for the limited edition knives their claming up to 9 months wait. The only went on pre-order last month.

Pretty knife. I like the blade shape.

I still pefer at least a little bit of a finger guard on my knife. Yeah, I know some will call me a wimp, but the damage I could do to my finger(s) if my hand were to slip forward is something I choose not to risk - especially if I were in a survival situation (already under stress and possibly injured).

That's one reason I liked the Rittergrip folder - its one of the few folders that even has some kind of a finger guard.

Here's my perfect field knife:

That's a good point. It's better to be safe than sorry in a survival situation. However any true bushcraft expert would likely question how you're using the knife and insist that if used properly, the knife is perfectly safe without a guard. Mora knives come with or without guards and it's generally accepted that the guard just gets in the way when it comes to doing bushcraft stuff.

My perfect field knife is the one I have that day...because the ones I leave at home can't help me. FWIW, this is the knife I most often take to the 'field':

This is my field knife, I'm sure there are better out there but it's a solid, well built, stay sharp knife.

My RC-4. I removed the powder coating on the blade and convexed the edge. I am waiting on some orange para cord to use for a lanyard.
