    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

    I would sneak an extra $20 and buy two $60 knives.

    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.

    Get the Condor Village Parang, and with the change take her out to a nice dinner.
