I personally carry and love my spyderco paramilitary 2. Broken down a few animals with it. My number 1 fav folding knife. If you can find one with m4 steel all the better.
Got a spyderco gayle bradley on the way that looks to be a good set up but cant speak on it as of yet.
I own a benchmade contego in m4. Great steel but the ergos of that one dont fit me well

Anton, I agree with fozzie, that’s a nice looking fixed blade.

I've grown quite fond of the Leatherman C33. A basic, no-nonsense knife that's small enough to carry yet has a proper blade. Does not break the bank, either.

I also carry a multi tool, can’t remember which one- have to check, on my quiver belt. Nice sharp blade and the pliers are often useful.

Anton, I agree with Randy & Chad, the fixed blade you showed is a good looking cutter; I like the scales, they are like the ones on my old Schrade Sharpfinger.
In my pocket is Dad's old Boker folder, he had it when I was little in the 1950s.
Not a fighting knife, but it would be better than nothing, at that.....but I use it for utility.
For a folder, for EDC type stuff I wear a ZT 0450cf with s35vn blade.

Thanks guys. That one is a piece of leaf spring. Probably 5160. Heat treat turned out pretty good....i really abused it on the first elk I processed. Scraping against bone etc. But it stayed sharp till the end. The scales are canvas micarta...my favorite! Titanium pins. The handle is skeletonized to reduce weight. It's big and the spine of the blade is 3/16" so a bit burly for a hunting knife. Full flat grind is a must in my mind. This knife is really probably better suited for bushcraft where you might want to baton and split firewood. Pretty versatile shape overall.knives are fun

Buck has done a nice job on their newer 110 hunter and 112 ranger knives with a light weight slim plastic type handle. Very decent knives for the money. They sharpen easily and hold a decent edge. At @ 2oz. They are a lot of knife for their weight and cost.

I've got an older Buck 110 my DAD used a lot, great knife, keeps an edge real well.
I also have a couple of CASE knives real similar to the 110.....one of the CASE knives is an X-changer I think, it has 4-5 different blades you can instll on it easily.....I've not used the CASE knives much at all, they remain pretty newish yet.
I guess I did not get from you JON what basic size folder you were after...?...when I think of folder I consider a pocket knife of the type with 3 blades, or a single folding blade still in that smaller size range, and I don't really consider a knife like a Buck 110 a "folder"......but that's possibly just me playing word games.......as we might all think differently on it.

I like a simple 2.75” to 3” single blade Steve.

I hear you on the classic 110. As a folder the weight is hefty for sure. One could argue might as well go for a sheath knife as the 110 really needs to be worn on a belt anyway. There are variants of the buck "slim" I mnetioned. The ones I was referring to are "slim select" listed on bucks website under "everyday carry". I have a few and I am very happy with them. Even the 110 slim select carries nicely in my pocket. I like that they look like a work knife and don't appear threatening if it comes into question.

Stolen from an archery pack?


My pocket folders are Benchmade Mini Griptillian or Spyderco Native.

Wink Re: Folder

I inherited a Case XX Changer from my father comes with a fillet blade, drop point, bone saw, and another blade. No gut hook though (although the new ones might).

I LOVE This knife, I have a havalon as well but haven't used it because of the sentimental nature of this one I tend to use it even though it creates more work having to sharpen it every time I'm done with a deer.

There have also been times that I was rearranging my pack and forgot my clippers and that bone saw comes in handy for cutting small branches
