What's everyone's bush crafting knife?

Slef-made "scandi"

Wazukie made mine, too. The smaller one I use. The larger one went to my brother for his 60th.  :tup:

Tomorrow I have to go shop around for some candidate material to play with stock removal knife making....need to rig up something to use as a forge. I know the owners of a large scrapping company and some of their employees, Ill see if I can get one of them to rough me out the start of an anvil out of some RR track

A weed burner and 4 fire bricks works well for a simple forge.  Leaf springs can make a good knife.  I use 1084 and 1095 high carbon steel for all my knives.

just occurred to me I already have a forge,  it's a branding iron blower and it'll flat heat a chunk of metal white hot.


Have to be careful I don't get the branding iron too hot

that would do nicely I'd bet.  Something I've always wanted to learn is forging blades. I'd love to make my own knives and axes

Due to my limited space I think I'm going to be doing stock removal knife making, I need to build a forge anyways for annealing and tempering though.
