    I have 3 bark rivers and love them all

    Here's the BRKT forum, Mike Stewart (he own/runs it) posts there every day and is very helpful. If you've never owned a convex edged knife I recommend you buy one, they're great.

    I have a mikro canadian which is close to that design, they're nice little pocket knives for EDC.

    Not quite sure what you mean by that :squint: I can think of many practical uses for it.

    I'd rather have a large folder, are you really going to carry around that mini sword? Too big for cleaning and gutting game, over kill for daily tasks, and not the best option for fighting.

    If I had to pick one item to have with me in a survival situation it would be a non folding 6-10" blade. They are much stronger than a folder, easier to clean, and can be used for larger tasks like chopping etc. I like folders and carry them daily but when heading into the outdoors I reach for a fixed blade every time.

    In a survival situation you will end up with that you have on your person at the time. Nobody is going to have a full size KA-BAR with them at the mall.
    My advice is to buy a couple of moras and keep them in the car.

    I just got another BRKT right before christmas, it's a Mountaineer Prototype from 2006 in Amboynia Burl but the the scale is cracked right in the middle of the pin (you can see it in the pic). They have a lifetime warranty and Mike told me to send it in and he'll replace it so I'm going to do it after today cause it's the last day of deer season :run: I take shitty pics btw.

    True, but that is why I carry one with me when I'm out in the woods. Obviously I don't go running around town with them.

    That is a nice knife, shame about the scale though - but very cool that they are going to replace it like that..

    Their customer service is excellent, most of the knives come with sheaths for righties but if you call or email they'll exchange them for a lefty but will usually just go ahead and ship the new sheath out instead of waiting for yours first.

    It's really nice too that you can send Mike Stewart a PM on knifeforums and usually receive a reply by the end of the day and a lot of the time within just a couple of hours.
