I have been letting go of some of my knives to finish out my must have list. I am looking for a 7 inch or so bowie style knife that can do double duty as a reasonable fighter and survival knife. I am looking hard at the randall 14 attack but Is it really strong enough to put up with some abuse. I have never bought anything but full tang slab handles knives. thier stregth is inherent. This knife will be used. Yes I buy expesive knives and use them. I use my sebenza as a mini chopper at work all the time. I also looked at the black cloud offerings and at the livesay 101 airborne knife but I dont think I can handle the maintance required of the carbon steel. Is there a benefit to the carbon steel that makes the work worth while?? If I bought the randall would you recomend the 01 version??
