    You're too good to me. But I have no space left on my dresser! It may be time to buy a toolbox like Andy has and keep all my knives in it

    They need to be in a fireproof gun safe.

    Three votes so far for the handyman. I'm really liking the coffeebag 1/8" scandyman at bladeco.

    Nice drawer.

    I really like the wrapped W.A. Surls oatmeal piece, as well as the scandi green esquire.

    I'd say 1/8 TT Bushfinger would be my go-to.....

    Wait, what I meant to say was 3/32" Bush Hermit in Rosewood. Come to think of it, just like the one you just put that nice edge on for me, Jarrett ;)

    I'm mostly sure that I don't yet own the one, if I had to have only one to carry...But in my humble group my 01 Shank with natural scales and od green bolsters has earned her keep as a butchering tool [27 whole chickens quartered and BBQued for a huge feast in the Ottawa Valley]. Of course I had Jarrett put a righteous edge on it. Love the feel in my hand when I'm using it. Going to take it camping this weekend...Yes there's big chunks of animal protein involved!

    I get way too much pleasure out of the way that oily Rosewood lights up in the sun.

    how am i supposed to know which one is the one unless i try all of them!?!?! <insert maniacal laughter here> :D

    i have tried the hiking buddy, EDC II and the ED Karda. the ED Karda was the winner of the 3, but the blade was just a bit too short. so, i went back to that comparison thread to see what else is similar. needless to say, i have a Shank coming any time now. i also have a KE Bushie coming that i will pick up from a member later. i realize that is different than the EDK, but it is one that i have always wanted to try.

    there are still a couple others i would like to try (bearcub and gaucho currently top that list, i think).

    when i get the new ones, i will report back.

    (this was all just my long way of subscribing to this thread ;) :rolleyes: )

    EDIT: I have tried the bushfinger, recluse and kephart years ago. i think i may also revisit the BF and especially the kephart....i remember liking that one the best of those 3 (even though i wanted to like the BF the best).

    It will have to be my very first fiddleback 1/8" 01 Bushcrafter with cherry crotchwood. There are times I wish the handle was a little thicker like my other Bushcrafter, but it's still an awesome knife. I love how non threatening it looks and the knife is just so versatile. And the handle material is possibly my favorite ever

    I actually only have one, my choice was a scandi Bushboot.

    Actually it was a pretty bad choice, these are so rare that it took me like a year to find one!

    But it all worked out nicely in the end :thumbup:
