I had several suggestions after reading this before boarding a plane last night...

These are $120 MSRP and normally street priced at $95 on the big knife websites. I wholeheartedly suggest you grab one and bank the other $85 to apply to a custom lifetime knife by getting on the books of a custom maker you REALLY want.

I ordered 3 for Christmas presents...deal of the season: Amazon Pendelton Mini

Forgetting the dink shooting "expert" Canuck, this bears looking at again...

Hopefully we're cleared to taxi soon. I'm tired.

Hey Rusty,

Get in touch with Mr Tim Olt (Michiganroadkill) on here. I had a chance to visit with him this past summer and he had several knives on hand that may be of interest to you. Maybe that has changed as its been 6 months or so. Also take a look at his Michigan Slim pattern.I think it may be just what your looking for. Good luck in your search.

Reminds me of the old saying, "There's more than one way to skin a cat."


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

First, to Rusty75, I'm sorry your post is getting sidetracked. I hope you end up with a knife that is just what you were looking for.

Rusty75 came on here and made a very specific request for a knife and wanted to stay under $150.

The very first post pathfinder76 made was to tell Rusty75 to up his budget and get a $300 knife.
The last post above from pathfinder 76 suggested a buy now $275 knife.

Maybe I'm judging pathfinder76 wrongly, but it seems to me that in between the 2 posts I cited, about all he has done is go off topic, stomp on Rusty75's post, and come across as someone far different than the character and manners of my friends. And, yes some of my friends are here on the campfire. Sorry, but I can not get used to this kind of behavior, nor do I want to.

If baffles me why people just can not pm someone they disagree with (especially when they make it personal) and just have a private conversation with that person and let the rest of us be ignorant of the ignorance.

Hold on. My suggestion was to stretch his budget and I gave the reason for it. If you or anyone else finds that offensive go somewhere else. Seriously. Are we that entitled to think that a discussion should remain within a certain set of parameters? Really? Are we also so fragile that disagreeing with someone’s approach to something creates so much anger that we start hurling personal insults? Give me a break.

Great reply! Kudos...

Give Tom Krein the credit he deserves for that...

I could give a chit who makes one. I use one

HA...knew you are a poseur... Come across all big time [bleep] expert and don't even know the history...

Got a clue for you pal...


Some of us use more than "one" to MULTITUDES of what your dripping little "experience" is...


I did almost 170 red deer on the Scots cull this year with a Mora Companion.

I also have the knife you "think" your semi is based on...Loveless Semi...which isn't even CLOSE!
Also, the Crooked Skinner which is closer...
The closest, I don't have, is the Parke skinner of which only 3 dozen were made.

So...[bleep]..go back to school and quit coming across so degradingly to some of the best guys on this website with more knife experience than you'll ever have...

MontanaCreekHunter ( or whatever it was) would do the same thing.

Highest $$$ doesnt always equal best.

That’s why I’m shocked at the vitriol over a $300 knife. That is the whole point. For a relatively insignificant budget increase you can return significantly better. On an asset that will last 50 years.

No vitriol.


Its the way campfire “what can i get” threads go.

OP - ive got $ money to spend. What do you recommend?

Ive got $500 to spend on a rifle - campfire - you gotta spend $2k to kill a deer. Ruger anerican is junk
Ive got $500 to spend on a new computer - campfire - you gotta have a $2500 macbook pro


On and on. From boots to packs to knives.


OP asked about what to get for his $150.

Easily doable with factory knives. Custom ? Maybe a nice second hand custom. Which ive bought also.

I typically subscibe to the 'bromide' that "inch by inch" it is a cinch. I do lay-aways and 12 month no-interest purchases quite often and find that to be effective.


Perhaps the OP might rejoin the conversation and indicate whether any of the different blade styles of the particular knives illustrated would tend to serve his purposes, and whether he had an interest in upping his budget for a single knife or maybe a set.

Ya!

There is a big difference between $1500 and $150. And no one is forcing anyone to do anything. It is a nothing burger about nothing important and deserves no tears.

Exactly. It’s not that big of a deal.

And this is why I’m not packing a bunch of knives. I also believe the OP was looking for multi purpose.
