    Only use sharp knives. Blunt knives are more dangerous.

    What sort of budget and what do you intend to use it for?
    Do you intend to carry it all the time?

    I can only answer this one by saying... 'a sharp one'... My knife cost me £5 from the local camping shop... simple wood/brass lock knfe

    My Gransfor axe however cost me £65 ( The damn things reduced at the moment, how annoying) I use my axe alot more than my knife... thats how *I* justified it <grin>
