Frank & Donald,
I went in to a knife store a couple of years ago to get...I think a Benchmade AFCK or something (still a good knife)...and then I saw the Chris Reeve's collection beneath the glass counter.
I handled a Ubejane, a Mountaineer I, and a couple of other larger blades...I bought the Mountaineer I. The pictures of the Chris Reeves fixed blade knives don't do them justice.
As for the two minutes I handled the Ubejane - it looked and felt like a good skinner - if you're into big game; but, for the occasional killer rabbit I battle, the Mountaineer I chose has served me fine.
Surely somebody here owns one, or someone on the Chris Reeve's forum could give a personal testimony.
