    Default Describe Your Dream Knife

    My dream bushcraft knife wood be crafted out of o1 tool steel, scandi ground, have olive wood handle scales with brass rods, and a cross burned into each side of the handle. Also, "He makes me lie down in green pastures.
    He leads me beside still waters." (Psalms 23:2) would be laser engraved on the blade. You can probably see I'm going with a Christian theme. How about you guys? What is your dream bushcraft knife?

    One that has been well used, like this one. One that has many story's to tell. Something that money can't buy. Only time in the woods.

    Edit - This is not my knife. Just an image found by Google. It does illustrate my point, though. It's my "grail" knife.

    Ya, you get a well used knife like that you know you have a keeper, eh?

    So far my dream knife has been my TOPS BOB. Good balance, very comfortable to use, sharpens quick and holds a good edge and is readily resharpened. Not as well used as yours but one day....

    Quietly I have always wanted the Rob Bayley S-4. I know I will never get one so that's why it's my dream knife.

    I love sharp things, but I can't say that I have a dream knife. I have found that there is no such thing as a perfect knife as each blade is a compromise for certain task that it excels at and others tasks it can perform but not excel at. This is the reason for a tool system such as the Nessmuk Trio. For me its about having a good blade that is comfortable to hold and use. I like my WCF Kephart and Necker, RW Fred small drop point, my kukris, I'm on the list for a Sargent M3 Compact, on Izs contact list. Hoping to order from SPL some time or another, etc. All great knives to use but each knife has a purpose that the others won't always fill.

    Would it be ok to just lock up Matt, IZ or some of the others and just have them make stuff as I think of it?
    Auto correct hates me and I don't proofread. So whatever sounds good is what I actually meant.

    A Fallkniven F1 w/custom grips made by my dad. oh wait... I have one.

    Actually, I'd also like to get a slightly shorter version of Cody's AS Guide in 1/8" O-1 steel, 4" blade, with liners (can't decide on the color) and ironwood scales, convex ground, brass lanyard tube, and maybe mosaic pins (brass and ironwood looks nice, so I may go with the normal screws.)
