    Forgot to post these. Scrapyard Muk with looooots of miles and an Opinel number 8. This is one of many I have owned through the years. It’s about 8 days old.

    I found what I think is a great deal on this:

    20 dollars from Amazon with plastic sheath that holds it well and it is sharp. I think a knife from 8 to 10 inches long is perfect for outdoors stuff. My everyday carry is this:

    Had it over twenty years and it sharpens right up!

    Those sod busters are great knives. Real work horses. I’m assuming the top knife is an ESEE knockoff of the ESEE3. I really like that design. It’s small enough to not be an issue and the guys At ESEE have their heat treat down solid. That one is likely stainless. As long as you like it then you did awesome for $20 .
