    Any views on bushcraft blades? I was watching a BBC doc bout some fellow named Ray Mears. I noticed his knife right off the bat and took a fancy to the shape of the blade.

    No doubt he has a custom piece with a price tag to match. I'm looking around for production pieces priced for the working man.

    I saw a nice piece from europe, an F1 Fallkniven. I believe it is the survival knife for the Swedish airforce.

    Anyone have any experience with these or can suggest sometning similar in a similar price range.

    Thanks in advance

    If you really want to get your hands on a great carbon steel blade that will last a lifetime and function for just about any bushcraft needs, get yourself a Swedish Mora. There are all kinds of varieties out there, and nearly every one should run you no more than $30.

    The F1 Falkniven is a sweet blade, but more costly.

    I make my own bushcraft knife but have not made any for a few months now because of other work commitments.

    Very cool blades.

    I'm a fan of anything 4-6" and carbon steel. I wish I had pics of the Helle blade I handled.

    I am a fan of the Mora knives too. I keep a couple around for butchering.

    It would be hard to beat a Mora knife for the money. If i can find out how to post pictures i will post some of my favorites

    Pretty simple, if all goes according to plan. Hit "reply" and up comes a message window. Below that, you'll find a box that will allow you to upload a pic from your hard drive or other widget where the pic is stored. Quick reply won't do it, you gotta go the full monte.

    Moras are good knives, especially for the price. While I have many of them, the new craftline series for about $30 look especially nice and have a better tang on them.
