Well i find myself having some money handy and i want a new knife.


The first order of buisness is, folder or fixed? i quite like the idea of having a nice folder i can just throw it my pocket jacket or something when im on a trip or something.

I already have a HELLE HARDING for a fixed blade and it works fine, still i want some more fixed :P even though i don`t "need" one :S

Now, i can either safe my money untill i can buy a Fallkniven (either an A1 or and S1) but don`t think that`s really necesarry.

These are the folder`s i have been thinking about, all benchmade simply because i like the look of them.

Benchmade 10750 VEX Folding Knife 3-1/4" 8Cr14MoV Stainless Steel BP Coated Modified Drop-Point Blade G-10 Fiberglass Handle Black

This one looks good to me because at the price i can get if for i can probably order a sharpening stone (or similar) along with it.

Benchmade 10200 Ambush Folding Knife 4" AUS 8 Stainless Steel Drop Point Blade Aluminum Handle Black

this one i can also buy along with sharpening stuff (i hope)


Ok it seems the list i had shrunk after all :P so then. Vex or Ambush? this will be for general being outside and cutting things, i dont need (or want) it for any self defence or such, i won`t be carrying it with me every day.


I also want to buy a Glock field knife but that can wait :P


while you are here, here are some things that look good for sharpening, but i have no idea so educate me please.

After having read the sticky (actually had it bookmarked :O who knew xD) im thinking maybe an arkansas stone would be better...
