I just retired my camillus knife after a few months of hard use. I will do a review of it soon. I just replaced it with a sog vulcan fixed blade :) so far im very happy with the knife.

Just got a SOG Bowie 2.0 which is a reman of the original Vietnam era MAC-V/SOG knife that made the company famous. Pretty sweet. I will have to post some pics when I have more time.

I dont know much about knives, but I was once told by a custom knife maker and former black-ops vietnam vet, that "a knife with a one-sided blade is for chopping vegetables".

Meaning that only double-edged weapons were for combat.

I always wonder if thats true or not.

Samurai made due with one edge and to the best of my knowledge many people died on those single edge weapons.

I think your source is, well, not really representing the truth. My thoughts. If he really was a 'black ops' vet, which most that claim so are lying, then he would have been trained with a single edged K-Bar or Mk2 (depending if he were Army, Navy, USMC). And if he were MACV or dipped, he would have carried the SOG Bowie, also single edged.

Just picked up a Helle Fjelkniven, probably going to be my general use outdoor knife. It sure is pretty, not sure I want to mess it up.

Also picked up a Knives of Alaska Whitetail Hunter in the bargain cave of cabelas. Probably be my exclusive deer/Elk knife

Thought I would post links as my camera phone sucks, and my dang cousin still has my digital camera. Might try the new iPad camera though.

Does that have a full tang? Is the finger guard big enough to use? Interesting looking kinfe for sure.

Finger groove is big enough for steadying it for small tasks,but the handle is long enough for you to hold the handle farther back when you chop.

As to the full tang...

They did a very nice job on this one,most time the Kamis tend to over do it,I have a copy of a local farm knife they made it's a 1/2 inch thick,yes a half inch thick! :skep:
