    I can't decide. I want a new fixed blade that I can legally carry (under 4").

    Bark River Huntsman - $75
    A-2 tool steel, very thick/stout blade, included leather sheath (pictured), black canvas micarta handle.
    I like everything about it, accept it's convex ground. I can't sharpen a convex blade so I'd have to pay someone else to do it.

    Kershaw Deer Hunter - $105
    AUS8 steel, i like the handle (phenolic/brass bolsters), leather sheath.
    Only problem is it's a good 1.25" longer than the Bark River. Also a tad over my small budget.

    Help me decide, or suggest something else? Only stipulations are...

    4" blade max
    MUST be fixed blade
    No serrations
    Good quality, no cheapy cheap

    Damn, the game just got harder. Found one even more perfect. I can't find anything wrong with it other than the price. $130-150 depending on the handle material I pick.

    I'm so bored right now I'm looking at sword canes, so an ice pick might not be out of the question. :p

    My budget just keeps stretching and stretching. :(

    I own 3 Bark Rivers and my brother has a Huntsman, it's an excellent knife. Convex is easy to sharpen, don't be intimidated by it.

    Hmm, looks like I'll be getting some BRKT stropping compound with my knife order as well.

    I currently own a small BRKT Canadian type blade, small 3" blade that is convex ground. I'll practice on that first.
