I am trying to decide between the 2... I had a Basic 9 and recently traded it (+) for a Steelheart. I currently have the Steelheart, a Ratchet, an Apprentice Badger, and the Assault Shaker. I guess I DO want a big blade as well... I am just debating as to which one... Does anybody have both (or handled both) who can sort of compare/ contrast them? I have heard that one is more balanced, the other chops better... both have comfy handles (I hear that the BR is the same as the PR handle) - and I had a Basic 9... Useage? In theory: camp chores, bush clearing, food prep (BIG FOOD) (minor SD - Ha Ha Ha) Officially: light branch chopping, saplings, camping... Realistically, mostly sitting there looking VERY utilitarian. Opinions?
