    New big blade question


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Friends,

    I have alwys wanted a dogfather(le or desert). Now it seems i have a choice of a used DF or a new SY911 or a Swampy M9....all somewhat close in price.......rough choice indeed. This will be the everyday bush knife so it will get a beating. Never held the 911 but the grip on the m9 doesnt immidiatly grab me. My big knife now is the BK9 and is pretty good, are these worth the money?Thoughts? recommendations?

    I love the feel of the m9 and you can't go wrong with the dogfather.

    I'm a little biased, the M9 is a fantastic knife, the LE version is downright beautiful.

    The Rodent 9 is a bit more utilitarian but available at a decent price if you look around.

    Though,

    The Dogfather is classic, S7 steel and nigh indestructible.

    No wrong answer in that group. I'd go with the 911 myself if I didn't already have a B10.

    911 Closest thing you are going to find to a factory priced Battle Rat or Basic 9.

    I like the M9 but if I was going big I'd get the DDF.
