I've been looking alot at diffrent custom knives from a bunch of makers like O'Hare, Bill May and a few others for use as an all-around fixed blade to use for general woods bumming duties and "bushcraft" and while their all very nice, I'm afraid if I pay a few hundred bucks for them, I'll be reluctant to really use them. The other day, in my endless search for decent quality blade blanks (read "not 440c") I stumbled onto Northcoast knives: www.northcoastknives.com I picked up a Knockabout II to make up the afore mentioned all purpose knife. It looks like a decent blade from the specs, good size, AUS-8, nice high grind. I also ordered their carbon steel Mora blade so I can see what all the fuss is about . I've been thinking about a Mora 2k but I just hate plastic and really like carbon steel. With all the money I saved, I'm going to pick up a new drill press so it won't look like a 4 year old put the scales on. What do ya think, did I goof?
