    Relax Man, you’re on the Islands. Grab a large, no ring, Assault Ring Fighter. Nice bead-blasted Infi Blade to chore or whore with. Cheers Mates!

    I plan on chopping lots and lots of wood. No little bitty raft for this guy. I've got nothing but time. I'm building a real damn boat. Lol!

    What kind of jacket are you wearing in the pic? I really like the color / pattern.

    Chop House. It is a very underrated and capable knife. It isn't that heavy either. I packed it into fish camp earlier this year and I despise carrying extra weight.

    I dig that hatchet. It's a shame that they don't make many with a proper hammer poll anymore. I have an old Plumb and a Council that are somewhat similar to yours but I rehandled them with framing hammer handles so the grip feels the same whether I'm using it as an ax or a hammer.

    test team kz although, I couldn't argue with choices here, especially basic 10 or 11.

    NMSFNO not too big and not too small. Feels good sounds good. Enough to do all tasks ok. Nice weight enough to chop but not enough to tire you out. The price will remind me of its value so I would never miss place it. When I get out of it all I would take pictures and post in on bladeforums for all to see. But it’s very hard to choose just 1. Ok time to go pull them all out of my safe and play knife fiddler hahaha.

    CGFBM good enough to chop down 2 of the coconut tree to build a good raft.

    Need a knife with a bit of flex to it, last thing you want is it snapping.

    Snaps at 4:10 while battening.

    I think any blade mentioned here would survive that test just fine.

    I would have said my B11, but seeing how you would be dealing with fish and such I will say my DS8. Love this damn thing

    This is why we need an INFI Boom Parang!

    It may need to be paired with a smaller blade to be fully practical, but the BG version continues to be one of my favorite choppers. Something about the weight distribution, stock thickness, and blade shape. You could do much worse for splitting coconuts all day, doing machete work, chopping, batoning, etc... :D
