    Like most things, it will depend on what for.

    Mostly, I prefer the bolo (on top). Lightest of the three and by far the fastest. She can chop and be used to clear brush. Something the other two would wear you out quickly doing. And for fighting, the bolo is fastest. I like speed with an edged weapon, especially a short one.

    And the bolo is my most used of the three. Maybe you can tell be the tennis wrap over the traditional rattan wrap. Way better grip and much more comfortable. I even have tennis wrap on my sword. That needs to be replaced soon.

    Nice bush knives... I would choose the one in the middle. Rustic, utilitarian, and I like the blade geometry.

    Now, I want a coal forge... :cautious: maybe.... But, then an Anvil, Tongs, Hammers, a 5 ton hydraulic press (and the list goes on).

    Any of the local bladesmiths ever been on Forged in Fire?
