    I'm reading the news, China and India have tensions, China and US have tensions, North and South Korea have tensions... so what if WWIII does start?

    Well, we can't decide if it will or won't start, but we can decide which knives we'll carry if it does... even though part of us will just be stuck in our basements or running somewhere safe, for this thread we'll assume that we'll all be outside at least for a while :D

    My current pick would be Warcraft Tanto for larger tasks and Esee Izula or Esee 3 for finer jobs. CPM-3V has amazing toughness, good stain resistance, good edge retention and tanto tip is excellent for stabbing (let's be real, it's not a knife you'd use to skin an animal with for example). But drop point on Esee and smaller blade that's also easier to resharpen is good for all other jobs, and would probably be used more frequently than Warcraft Tanto as well.
    I'd carry my Fallkniven DC4 sharpener with me, possibly even 2 of them :D

    What's your pick and why?

    Victorinox Swisschamp, so that once the missiles start flying and all hell breaks loose, I can slowly start to piece shit back together again with my pocket-toolbox.

    A BK-14 never leaves my person - for other EDC and survival duties.

    it's too late to stockpile
    the doomsday clock is currently set
    at 2 minutes...
    with nbc options, not forgetting cyber
    and electronic weaponary;
    large scale foreign military incursions
    and occupation is a thing of the past.
    the fall out from a global war is
    the danger of prolonged localized
    internal strife.
    and yes! knives are gonna be right up there
    amongst the sticks and stones
    once the ammo runs out :)
    you folks who can forge knives
    will be demi g'wads :)
    i'll try weaponizing the piles of
    scattered kitchen cutlery...
    sharpening will be a good trade :)
    guess a couple of diamond benchstones
    is something that i would really be needing
    as a mobile scavenging refugee.

    I shudder to think of the terrible toll of souls that knife would demand once awakened with it's demented activator switch...

    Bodies piled like cordwood I suspect.

    Can I use this thread as an excuse to buy a WW3 knife?

    If not, I guess that I will just carry a multi-tool and a full size Griptilian.

    My CRKT served me well while in uniform. A Griptilian should work even better.

    Positively something longer than knife.
    Maybe handsome cutlass ...

    Hopefully the target is only a few feet away.
