    the title says it all, they all look great, but i was just wondering if one stands above the rest. They all look pretty cheap, so price won't be a problem.

    I take it that you've convinced your mom within these last 10 minutes?

    It's kinda hard to say anything is the "best." What do you expect to do with it most?

    Well it's still really hard to say if anything is better than the others. We need to know what specifics you're looking at. Such as length and use.

    IMO, it's the new Light My Fire knife, the product of a joint venture between Frost's Mora of Sweden and Light My Fire. It's similar to the excellent Clipper, with a built in firesteel. You have your blade and fire starter in one unit. I like the red knife. It's priced around $29.

    3 i was looking at are the companion mg, the bushcraft triflex, and the bushcraft survival. (the last one is a bit pricey)

    The Light My Fire knife is stainless and 4" blade length. The Companion is excellent but then you don't have the firesteel. You need both and you'll be set for survival adventures from the backyard to out in the wilderness!

    Worth a look, Mora 860 campanion and Mora bushcraft forest. With mora . considerations, carbon or stainless steel blades, and handle shape, they brought out newer handle design a while ago, as on the bushcraft forest. Faron

    You can't go wrong with any of them. If you decide to go with a SAK for your adventures, take a close look at the Hiker. It can do everything the Farmer can do and more. I like it for light bush work in combination with a fixed blade knife.

    I can personally recommend the Companion, and the Robust. The extra thickness of the Robust really adds to the feel of the knife IMO, and the added palm swell of the grip fits my big mits nicely. I've also been looking at the Force pretty hard. I like the looks of the knife, and I think the extra width of the blade would.., oh hell what am I saying.., I just want an excuse to buy another knife!! HAHA :D

    Either way, pick up one(or a couple) of 'em.., you won't be disappointed. They're one of the "best bang for the buck" knives out there IMO. Let us know what you decide on, and pics are always nice!

    The model most commonly sold in outdoor stores here is the Mora 2000. There's also a "bushcraft"-something-or-other model with a different handle. There are plenty of cheaper worker knives though. They generally have smaller blades or task specific blade types.

    I have the 2000, but I haven't used it enough to say anything about it really.

    for light bushcraft the mora 1 is the best because it has a .79 thick blade which is perfect for light bushcraft work!
    Ask for rust you dont really have to worry about if you keep a nice coat of baby oil on it and dont let water dry on it.
    A forced patina would make carbon steel care even easier.
    Hope this helps!

    I'll echo what others have already said. Companion in carbon. Best $15 you'll ever spend.

    For the money I'm quite impressed with the 711. The handle is most ergonomic and the Carbon steel blade can get screaming sharp and is capable of decent edge retention.

    Top q all around stainless is a bit bigger than the companion, another great option. I wouldn't go with the 2000/bushcraft forest again, 1/3 the blade is ground thin and bent on me. The standard mora grind is better for bushcraft anyway.
