Since I got a factory second one of these is my go to blade.
Pretty does everything I want. Food prep, small game (dozens of pheasant) and light wood fettling.
And is aesthetically pleasing
Other than that an opinel 7 as pocket - mostly where i might loose a fixed blade / don't carry a sack...
Attach the lanyard to the BA with a thin small cable tie - strong enough keep it to hand but easily snapped of entangled.
It's what we do with the ones on our Swiftwater Rescue Tec ones - never lost one yet.
I'm looking for a cheap and cheerful whittling / carving knife.
The Mora 120 firs the bill but in short supply - any suggestions for a similar one?
Ideally with a "barrel" handle rather than Erm... sculptured. The Mora Basis would be OK but not keen on that type of handle shape
