About the time Op2Wks first kicked off, I thought I'd like to get a large blade "or two" to compliment my machetes and axes. I ended up with all of these : It started off with the 1311 and 1111 from the Exchange and sort of snowballed from there... I kept finding totally rational and valid reasons to purchase and "evaluate" additional blades. Kept telling myself that, for sure, after handling and using them a bit, it would become apparent what worked best for me, what didn't, and I'd get back to two or three "keepers." That hasn't happened. They're all awesome in different ways and so far I want to keep them all! I guess it's fortunate that it's not a problem to do just that and I suppose that over time a few clear favorites may emerge and compel me to send the others to new homes... BUT, Jerry's annoucement that things are about to get wild again has me a little worried lol. I definitely don't need anything else, I could probably cover my great-grandkids' chopping/camp knife needs with this hoard. I know we're about to be tested again though and it'll be serious trouble if any flavor of FBM comes up, not mention whatever new creations Jerry has up his sleeve... So, to wrap up my rant and ask some questions: What are some of your favorite large blades? How do you avoid hoarding them, or do you just not worry about it? Is there a support group I can get some info on?
