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 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 What's your pick and why?
