    anything but chopping.

    you would die instantly if you had anything over 5" long and any if you had any grind other than a scandi you would instantly be killed by the gods of the forest for daring to touch wood with an inferior grind.


    ASH 2 disagrees.

    Mostly internet "experts" suck...
    Big blades are cool!!
    Thanks for the pic...

    I admit I haven't thought much about the choppers...
    But that ASH-2 has a skull cracker pommel that I like.
    Along with all that heavy sharp steel!!
    And great guard...

    Let the internet "experts, more like weasels" go hide behind the
    beaded doorway to their parents basement!

    The manly men & women will venture out & use them thar big knives
    to make stuff like spoons & brooms, firewood & kindling, lean to's & cabins!!
    Totem poles & wiener roasting sticks!!

    I may have had too many baked goodies... no, not that kind, just regular
    butter tarts & short bread, lol!!

    Merry Christmas SRTR!!

    I believe the ASH2 is an allrounder! That is some awesome work! Next year I’m going to clean and skin a deer w mine to further prove your point! Someone said it, not me and I wish I could take credit, they called the ASH2 the perfect proportion of slicey to choppy! I would have to agree. Obviously great at smaller finer work as well. ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    The wilderness and survival experts all pray to McGyver the God of SAK
    They love the SAK
    The hold the SAK
    They spend all their spare time playing with the SAK

    I don't think the ASH 2 counts as a "big" blade in Bussedom. ;) it's so cute, I mean just look at the little guy...

    Actually, I sense a change in the scandigrind-force.
    More and more bushcrafttype of guys tend to gravitate towards full height flat for and all purpose woodsknife.
    Guess some folks realise that a scandigrind sucks for foodprep. And there is more to life than whittling.

    I do like the scandi but it really is only good for woodworking for me. It kinda sucks at everything else compared to a saber grind with a convex micro edge.

    I am into wooden ship model building and sometimes I'll use a large blade to split wood into strips to make planking. I am sure I would be confident enough to do some detail work with a TGLB or my new FBM. Those scandi blades work wonders though so I mostly use them. If it comes time to bug out or outdoors activities, I know what I will grab first though.

    Personally, I favor the ASH2 over the Bunker Buster.
    The ASH2 just feels so good in hand.

    The ASH2 is the perfect all arounder. Big enough to chop anything and baton anything, yet small enough to easily do small work. LEts hope Jerry brings out the satin versions.

    If a big blade is closest I’ll use it for anything a knife can be used for. I like the weight to length ratio of the basic bolo 13 for chopping/swinging. If I could find an ash2 user I’d try that one too. I can appreciate when people who have a lot more experience than I do show off how short their knife is, though. I am just way too lazy to build a shelter with a 3” skinner.
