I have to second this. Since you stated that you are looking for a large blade, Busse's are pretty much tops on my list. But they are spendy.

The CS Trailmaster has served me well also, if you don't want to spend as much.

I have a custom made one, that I recently had shipped to me. A bright orange handle. I havent field tested it yet, but plan to, maybe even this weekend. That said, it is a fairly small fixed blade, made with tool steel. The bright orange handle kinda threw me off at first, but it slowly grew on me. The sheath I had made allows horizontal carry-something I like, particularly when kayaking. I really look forward to abusing this blade soon, just to see how it handles. I will post pics perhaps this weekend.
