    Thanks G1, a tool that is not well appreciated on this side of the pond, but a great tool none the less.
    I think Iz has a thread some where defending the hidden tangs strength.

    I also think that something many people miss about Nordic knives is the light weight.
    You don't need a 3# knife to chop or baton.
    Thanks again.

    Default I am having a hard time deciding between carrying...

    A Gransfors SFA or a Leuku on my trips

    Most of the things I can find myself using a Leuku for could be duplicated by a SFA and a smaller knife. Yet the SFA would allow for taking down a larger diameter tree with much less effort. Useful for those widowmakers you might find on your trips.

    I can't see myself carrying all three items, and since I already have the SFA and a smaller knife that I love, I wonder if a Leuku would serve me well enough to justify the price and weight(though I know they are relatively lightweight).

    Can someone with more experience enlighten me to a few tasks that I might have a more difficult time doing with my setup?
