The point that I was trying to make to the members is that you cannot predict when the "Poop is going to hit the Propeller" (PHP?). Therefore its a good idea to make sure that your carry knife is of the best quality you can afford. There does seem to be some concensus about good knives or bad one's. You have to be carefull about Armed Forces use when it comes to knives. Some units have a rule book up their collective ass and won't allow their members to use anything other than issue equipment. Even if it is crap.

Victorinox Outrider SAK A not overly tough locking blade and a usable saw. Paired with a quality 4" fixed blade (many to choose from) or a small axe and you've got lots of bases covered.


I have one of these in my BOB, it is a great knife in a good sized package. For about half the price of a Leatherman Wave, it covers most of the same fuctions I choose the Wave for. While not a replacement for a good sheath knife, like most if not all multi-tools, it is a great knife!

I don't think there is any one perfect survival knife, I choose mine based on my experiences and needs. Even then, I choose to carry a minimium of two knives in the field with me, a good multi tool (like the Wave) and a good fixed blade or Sheath knife.

I think TSHTF has always been the preferred acronym. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
