    That's actually my regular deer hunting knife, now that I got it back from son #2; I got him his own.

    The answer to the question is "it all depends". I do normally carry more than one knife hunting. I wouldn't volunteer one of my knives to someone I do not know to use. But if I were standing over their kill and it needed field dressing, I would hand them a knife. It all depends.

    I have an EDC folder (Benchmade Leopard) that Ive had for (I think) over 20 years. That was a gift from my father & I never lend that knife to anyone for any reason. I sometimes also carry a fixed blade knife & the last time I lent one out it was returned with a broken tip along with an "I'm sorry" that didn't do much to fix the knife. From that day on I don't lend my knives to anybody.

    I guess sardonic wit (sarcasm) doesn't come across well in print - the "Really" was as in "trying to improve on a Gibbs-ism?" S'ok, I'll save it going forward.

    No it doesn't as I have learn more times than I care to mention. But that hasn't caused me to give up trying. And I was just returning the favor. I mean who in their right mind isn't a NCIS/Gibbs fan? Especially a jarhead.

    For everyday loans, I like an inexpensive SAK. That way, if what they really want is a screw driver or pry bar, they can use the right tool and not mess up the bade on my EDC. For outdoors, probably an inexpensive Mora.

    I checked out the steel Mora uses. 12C27 in their stainless knives. Dang for the dollar I defy anyone to find a better knife. I'm going to get a few more just to have around. The one I keep on the pontoon boat is perfect for that purpose - knife and sheath both. So. If you need to borrow a knife from me, you're probably going to get a razor sharp Mora Companion.
