    That's one of the models being discontinued this month, it's the only model in my line that uses 1 1/2" stock.

    This community really is amazing! I have a knife on order and it's been brutal waiting for it, I check the "knives on order" thread once a day to see if I'm any closer! For that reason, I also don't have any pictures of my knife, and we all know that's why were here! I will still talk about my soon-to-be knife though. It's s stretched Worker/Bird and Trout, 4" micarta handle and 3.5" 154CM flat ground blade. I'm a fan of small, precise knives, and I'm also of the opinion that in a survival situation the most useful thing is to have a smaller knife and then a hatchet. In the given scenario there is only one choice though, so I don't think this knife would work well! It's not a do-it-all tool, the grind and thin blade will be great for slicing and food prep, it should be able to fashion some traps without a problem, but the lack of heft and the thin grind will keep this knife from being able to do much hard work. I will say that I'm in the stainless steel camp when it comes to outdoors knives, I know they can be harder to sharpen in the field and that they won't throw a spark, but I prefer not having to worry about my knife getting wet (and I keep Bic lighters in every jacket and backpack). So, I don't have a JK yet and I don't have any pictures of it and it wouldn't be good for survival, but you better believe I'm looking forward to it! I'm also looking forward to seeing more pictures from people, I love seeing what other people use.

    I have several JK's that would fit the bill but I'd have to bring my modified Viktim just because its unique for this thread. Not to overlook it would be an excellent tool for bushcraft, skinning in a survival situation.

    here's a pic of the original viKtim that I used during the passaround to section up a fallen sapling by hammering it point first into the tree halfway through, wiggling it out and repeating 2 more times before the tree snapped.

    I'll take number 16 as that was my number forever lol. My one knife would be my JK hawk. it's just a beast and can do everything. I use it as a knife and hawk. It's a chopping monster. Mine is custom made to the max dimensions John could make. I freaking love it. Carry it pretty much anytime I'm in the woods. here is some pics of it.

    a pic of a lot of my collection. Spike hawk and belt hawk. Love them both!

    If you'll take me, I'll choose #19! And perhaps the winner of this GAW will receive something that would work well in a survival situation...

    Being that I cannot enter the contest, I would still like to add my choice. I would bring my longer version of the 2008 Anniversary Knife. the blade is around 6 1/4" long, 3/16" thick and flat ground. It's not too heavy in the hand and the blade is long enough to accomplish several different bushcraft and outdoor/ hunting type task.

    I think I should have another one-off but not sure where to look. Didn't picture my Camp 8, I think I'd think it too big. Nor did I picture my Supporters knife, or Toby's vs 2, toothpick, PStK, etc. Also forgot this one:

    [​IMG]

    I think the bottom one is an Iris, then a Compact Tool, Canadian Belt Knife(?), Bolo (one-off), South Fork Cabin Knife , ?, Crooked Creek, and Mud Turtle XL(?). I can't find that last question marks name to save my life.

    [​IMG]

    It would have to be one of these three above. All have square spines which should help for fire. The Bolo is heaviest and would chop/baton best. Middle knife is a little thicker, nice length, good point, and has thumb jimping. I should have added thumb jimping to the third knife.

    I think the Bolo has the best fitting handle though. Ok, give me the Bolo.

    Oh, and #3. (Thanks!)

    It would be a really hard choice for me. The Rule#9 and Rule#9 XXL leap to mind and the EWOK would also be a great choice but I think I need to choose the Cutlass. Not only is it an indestructable, do it all survival tool, it also looks cool. :D

    If 15 isn't taken yet, count me in.

    Please add a pic of your jk knife or at least some detail of which JK you would take.
    That's the whole point of this thread.
    Thanks

    Sorry, should have clarified a bit more, I'm still learning how to respond with quotes and all that...I was picking #19 in response to being told I should pick a number after sharing about my knife on order and the ways in which it would be ineffective as a stand alone survival knife...sorry for the confusion!

    When I first read the OP I narrowed my choices down to several knives and the hawk. I still stand by my first choice of the
    Recurve Camp Knife but would have no reservations about using any from this group.
