Ok,no Tiwantainium/Chineese wonder blades please. Lets talk about real working blades.I tend to carry four different blades in my backwoods kit,I bought what I could afford and what fit my needs best,you might find different blades suit you better,let's hear about them! In my kit there is an Indian military ghurka khurki, A Buck 110, A Buck General, A Buck Caping knife. Also a hatchet and a leatherman multitool and a dozen exacto knife razors in a paper sleeve,but they're not really knives,but they're in there because I use them. Now this is my camping box,the daily outing box is far different! it only has a K-bar Marine fighting knife and a small case knife. What you plan for changes things you see,then there's the fishing kit,it has a fillet knife and an air force survival knife and again with the razor blades,only two.they wipe off well. Then there's my urban kit,it has a leatherman and a spyderco in it.I've opened neither in ages,but they are there. Now you're looking at this and thinking: "why can't this n00b choose one general purpose knife" I'll tell you why. ever try to skin a deer with a "Rambo"knife and do it right?ever try to cut tent stakes with a pen knife? ever try to cut kindling with a sheath knife?that's why. It might weigh you down,but the right tool for the right job is priceless!now let's hear about yours and why you pack em'.
