    Default Going to SMKW with $100....

    So I comming up on 10 years being married. My wife wants to spend a weekend in Pigeon Forge. She told me I could spend $100 at Smokey Mountain Knife works as my gift. This will be in June, but I like to take my time figuring out what to buy.

    So my question to you is, If you were turned loose in SMKW with $100, what would you get?

    The most expensive knife I have ever owned was $25-$30. So I plan on getting one close to $100.

    Most of my knives are small, Moras mostly. I was thinking of something bigger. I had a Condor Bushcraft basic 5", but it sprouted legs before I got to use it.

    I sortof have small hands, but not super small.

    I would really like to know what you would get!

    Thanks, God bless,
    Chad

    +1 on the BK7! Or any if the Beckers for that matter. They're all great knives and practically indestructible.

    The only Beckers I can find on there site are signature sieres knives. No BK7 or BK2.

    I really like the looks of the Esee-4.

    The esee 4 is an amazing knife I had one and used it for everything I always tried to find some reason to use it so I used it a lot every day but I had to get different scales from the knife connection but I have really weird hands I guess

    The ESEE 4 is an awesome blade, the handle is a bit small for some folks though so be sure you like how it fits your hand before buying.

    I was going to suggest the bk7 as well, the scales are a preference thing. I'm personally looking to pick them up at a later date.

    Every time I go to smkw I end up getting a few more knives. I have the Entrek forester and like it. I saw that smkw has the javalina for $106. That would be the one I would pick up if it is in stock when you go.
