    I bought mine in the late '80s, and it was already being closed out (so I could afford it). It doesn't cut as well as the thinner, curvier W49, but that 5/16" thick back really inspires confidence, and I like a flat grind.

    Carcass Splitter
    Sounds more ominous than cleaver.

    Got one of those myself at a local farm store for very cheap, and I agree a very nice knife for the price.

    My big knife. I've had it for 30 odd years... used it mostly for splitting kindling for the fireplace. There aren't as many grizzlies in west Texas as I previously thought..... this thing holds an edge really well, though.

    Ironically there isn’t much of a knife tradition here in Australia, as has been discussed before. We have to import them from far off places. This is my best example

    ^ That is a monster.
    Didn't Svord have a "Ned Kelly" knife that looked like a mason's trowel? I wonder how they did with that.

    I would go with this from JK Knives, the GBH (Get Back Home). It's a solid handful!

    Good grief... that looks like it would weigh 5 or 6 pounds... you could baton that with an 8lb sledge....

    The classic Himalayan Imports AK Bowie is another biggie. Blade thickness would be around 7/16 to 1/2 inch.

    I guess this would be another bit of a contender. A Hudson Bay Camp Knife by JK Handmade Knives - O1 steel with Walnut covers.

    That chopper has some class. And the musket (rifled musket?)- Great! Are you a civil war re-enactor?
