    All the Swamp Rat knives are great. My first was the Battle Rat, which was my first Bussekin blade, soon followed by a Camp Tramp. I have acquired many more over the years; surprisingly, the Rodent 9 was probably the sharpest blade I received from Busse.

    Love my FHFG INFImandu and Mini Vex. Don’t think I’ll ever part with either of them.

    For actual knifey use, I find myself reaching for my Rodent Trail more than any other. 20180702_140129_resize_37.jpg

    For a bigger blade, it's the Ratweiler. If I'm carrying a large blade, 9 times out of 10 I'll have one of the 3/16" thick versions on my hip because they are lighter, but I love how my 1/4" thick version is actually much thinner behind the edge. 20170925_111241_resize_58.jpg

    There are a lot of good ones, but my favorite is the Dog Skinner with the D2 blade, if I had only one knife, that would be it Bog Dog D2 is second

    RMD and Benchmade 940 Osbourne for my EDC’s! Perfect combo in my opinion!

    Ratmandu, but I looooove the Rucki (never should’ve traded mine off - for an ASHBM;)) and the Rodent Trail (gone as part of a trade for a BGASH).
