I'm one of those people who found the thumb ramp on the Bravo 1 to be very uncomfortable.
So, personally, I'd choose the ESEE 4.
(But my go-to knife in that approximate size is the Fallkniven F1 in 3G.)
I have quite a few knives that I don't use.
Just about all of them are slipjoints, and most are new or nearly so.
Perhaps I'll sell them at some point, or gift them, or pass them on to the next generation.
I have a variety of slipjoints for use and carry.
Enough to keep me happy.
Since you already have a good fixed blade, I'm not sure why you'd need a full size trapper or similar. Especially a large one like the GEC Pioneer #23 (for example).
Although it is a very nice knife. :)
Instead, I'd definitely consider a SAK.
Maybe a Farmer or Pioneer in Alox, a One...
The quality of the Boker Magnum knives is decent at best.
All are made in mainland China.
I'd look at the next series up, the Boker Plus series.
Many - but not all - of the Boker Plus series knives are also made in mainland China, but the quality is better than the Magnum Series
50 - 80 dollars for a custom knife...you really don't see them priced like that too often.
But it does happen occasionally, especially with smaller knives, neckers and the like.
One good place to look is right here on Bladeforums in the Knifemakers for Sale area.
The best deal I've seen very recently in a quality fixed blade knife is the Benchmade Rant Drop Point for less than $40.00(!)
It's the version that was recently discontinued. 440C stainless, USA made.
Really nice knife and great value at that price. :thumbup...
That's German C75, which is the direct equivalent of 1075.
Very nice & underrated knife. :thumbup: Mine was ridiculously sharp right out of the box.
VG-10 can take that kind of edge, as noted in a post above.
It is 154CM.
