    Here's some of the blades I like. The butterfly swords are Cold Steel. They're really sharp, but they don't handle so well. The right one got all fucked up by my brother's roommate somehow- there's knicks in the blade and its got some stains on it. The big knife on the left is a United Cutlery survival knife. I know they make lots of garbage, but I've carried it backpacking for years and its got lots of experience. Also, all the bullshit that can break off already has (guard, compass etc) so what's left is pretty sturdy. The other big knife is a bowie knife I made recently. The folding knives are the CRKT Crawford Casper folder and the other is a nice Gerber folder. The one in the middle is a large Cold Steel ti-lite.

    Nice! Nonetheless I prefer smaller blades, like this one:



    This was made by Santino Ballestra, an italian bladesmith. The price is almost affordable, too...

    By the way, pl4zM4, I see you bought a pair of KaBar TDI: what can you tell me of them?

    Solid, Cheap (price, not cheaply made) and Sharp. It has the standard Kabar AUS6A steel. It handle like a Karambit, except due to the design, I will say it not really good for a reverse grip. It made for more a pistol grip (Heavy on the pointer finger for control).


    If you are looking for an affordable knife (as a backup knife), it only $30, this works very well.

    I had some doubts since they are so cheap, but I was mistaken, it seems.

    They're said to be an excellent tool to cut off heads, though.
