    Part of the problem is that they each have so much of their own character, you want more than one. On the flip side you don't keep gazing at other people's belt sheaths, wondering what they have.... you're satisfied with yours. ;)

    “Bummer, that’s too bad. Here’s a Mora. If you mess it up or lose it you owe me $20”.

    one of my buddies best grabers was this huge black lab mix, thought the whole thing was a game. Pigs weren't so enthusiastic to play tho.

    I usually carry a Buck, Gerber or other cheapie knife for that circumstance. I don't loan out my nice knives.

    A pairing knife. A Mora is better for bushcrafting and processing wood but not so good for game. So if the buddy is cutting game, it would be a pairing knife. If he was whittling a feather stick, a Mora. Mercer and Victorinox make good pairing knives, but there are many more, Henkels etc. They're under $10. They cut game very nicely too. If I was cutting very large game, I would want a few of them, but otherwise, I don't really feel a need for a more costly knife.

    I'd for sure be able to loan out some kind of decent folder. Griptilian or a Barrage or at the very least, Ka-Bar Dozier designed folder. Maybe a KOA Jaeger. Maybe a Buck 119 or 110. I'll keep the Randall thank you. I think more of my friends than to hard time one over something like a knife. They're all good people and I'll get the knife back, no doubt about it.

    What I found amusing was that among various custom knifemakers they didn't carry their own work. Have seen Buck, Spyderco ,etc. Although one of the makers was carrying a Ken Onion Mid Tech Ripple. Which is passable since his folders run about $3K. I wonder if he'd let me borrow it. ;)

    You’re right, but beggars can’t be choosers.

    That’s just what I have in my truck.

    My backup is either a leatherman or Gerber multitool.
    Definitely not the best thing for field dressing but definitely useable.
    I suppose I do things backwards. I usually carry a relatively cheap hunting knife when I'm in the woods. I find myself digging broadhead from a log, or hacking brush for a quick shooting lane. I do keep it sharp...but I wouldn't hesitate to loan it out to a friend. 20190116_173125.jpg

    I have a small schrade pocket knife in the console of my jeep, and a mora fixed blade clipped to the back of the seat. Those 2 live in my jeep, razor sharp. Those are what would get loaned out.

    I am far more apt to not let anyone borrow my knife. And I rarely hunt, and hunt alone when I do. In any case, I still throw an extra knife in my hunting bag.
