    I got my $6.00 worth from this one. Even customized the sheath with "Wisconsin Chrome".

    My CRKT STIFF K.I.S.S. has held up well. Makes a great, lightweight backpacking knife.

    Here is a knife that I found fishing. The blade says "Hand-Honed Vernco Company Hi-CV Stainless Japan". I am guessing it may be from the 70's? Unfortunately part of the hook remover is broken, but the rest is in good shape after I cleaned it up. It takes and holds an edge extremely well, I have cleaned a lot of fish and game with it.

    It came reasonably sharp out of the box but there was definite tugging at the arm hair. So I hit each blade about 25 laps on the strop and it's quite smooth now.

    Tapatalk ate my spelling and grammar.
    Got one and love it and its in my pocket now - paid 9 bucks for it new at a local fleamarket !

    I have this same knife but branded as Coleman:



    I review it in this thread.

    One of the best little knives I've bought on the cheap is the Gerber Profile (I think that's what it's called). I used it for a couple of years before I upgraded. I took it and gave it to my boy, and it is his bush knife know.
