Greetings knife Knuts, I,ve been lurking on the list a couple weeks now. I want to retire my Frank Vought 4.5" drop point , and
get a 5" drop point, either carbon or stainless W/ micarta handles. Anyone care to make a recomendation? General use for this blade will be camping, and hunting. Would prefer 5/32" thickness, but can live w/3/16.
Thanx for all the info...Ravenn the Nam Vet

Welcome to the forums Ravenn!! It sounds like you might need a blade made of Talonite. Do a search of the forums, this one and Camillus' forum. Hope this helps.
Here's a link:

Welcome to the forums, Ravenn. One of my favorite things to do is go to the links here, click on Custom Makers and then start browsing. Many of those folks will make something that fits your needs. The problem is that a search like this can occupy many hours (or days) and can do serious damage to your bank account. Hope this helps. Let us know what you decide.

Sounds like an Allen Blade MEUK. Differentially heat treated carbon steel blade (of course you can get a myriad of steels, carbon, stainless or talonite) with a micarta handle. I have one comming!

Sounds to me like a Bob Dozier Elk Hunter is just what the doctor ordered here.

Welcome, Ravenn! I'll second the recommendation for a Dozier. If you want a drop point in that size range, as sgtmike88 suggested, the Elk Hunter could be just the ticket. If you might consider a clip point, take a look at one of my favorites, the Pro Guide.
