Have read a number of threads on the subject of blade length and whether people prefer "big" or "small" or "medium" knives, or a combo of these for camping/hiking, survival bags, or just all-purpose usage. Thing I've noticed is that people have wildly different definitions of what blade lengths are "small" or "large", and often these threads fall into debates about the merits of large vs small blades, or why one is "better" than the other. Rather than debate what is "better" among different blade sizes or create hypothetical scenarios where you can "only carry one" (which is rarely the case in real life), I'd be interested to just hear the following info from folks with regard to blade lengths. 1. What size blade do you use as your "main" go-to knife for outdoor use, or all-around use, or if you were in a survival situation? (By "main" knife, I mean the one you prefer and would use most often for the widest variety of tasks). 2. What makes you prefer this blade length, versus using smaller or larger blades that you could have used? For instance, does it do certain things more effectively that blade lengths that are a bit smaller (or larger) don't do as well?
