    Bear Grylls, from Man Vs. Wild on Discovery Channel. Didnt know he had a website and found this quote:

    "I have had so many enquiries about what knife I consider best for all round performance blade.
    Well, I have tried so many different ones during the filming of these 'Man Vs Wild''s & 'Born Survivor's', and if I am honest, none of them were quite right, (although in their defence. I did give them all a bit of a beating!)
    So instead I have teamed up with Bayley knives and together have designed what I believe to be the most versatile, tough and practical knife available anywhere today.
    Ironically, it has turned out very similar to ones we used in the SAS...but that is a beside...in conclusion, it is the knife I am currently using in any new episodes."

    It is!

    I'd love to have a Kressler, and I'll pay a couple hundred for a knife, but the thousand+ dollar range is out of my league.
     
  10. I've seen him using a cheap ass gerber and he cut a tree down with it AND was able to sharpen it again I believe.

    I have the model 81, with the root saw on it. $30 most places.

    Since I can't carry that around, I might have a swiss army knife on me, but I'm not a knife person.

    Cavemen survived with broken rocks for knives. We should be albe to build a village with a swiss army knife. Fuck that $1,000+ nonsense.
