I was just on ESEE's website, and they've re-introduced one of their knives that I didn't even know about. I prefer drop-point knives, and this is the only ESEE knife that has it.
I think that drop point knives are easier to work with, and better for skinning and cleaning animals. But that's just an opinion based on what feels most comfortable to me.
And if you take the handle apart, there's a ferro rod hidden inside of it.

They used to sell these knives in a lot of cool colors. You could buy a red blade, or an orange one. Now it's just the basic black, brown, green, desert, or SUPER BRIGHT LIME. I feel like I've missed out.

The only stainless steel knife that I would ever buy is a Mora.
And I personally think that those RAMBO knives are just stupid. Both aesthetically and historically.

That was the "Knife nut" thread. I never forgot it because B.K. was yelling at everyone not to throw their goddamn knife in the dirt, or they'll have to do pushups. B.K. recommended KA-BAR, "killed bear." I like KA-BAR too, and they're probably the best value for the money. Their BECKER brand is basically just a pry bar that holds a sharp edge. It's impressive stuff. It's one of the other knives that I was looking at. I really dislike the handle though, and don't really want to have micarta scales separately. I dunno how I feel about the lack of a finger choil, but these knives are beastly. They usually sell this shorter model for only $80.
