Old Hickory seem a popular choice for a bushcraft knife, especially for modifications.

My current favourite is a cut down Cold Steel Bowie machete. Basically just cut the tip off to turn it into a 9 inch cleaver style knife. It looks badass!

The front 2/3 of the blade are for just hacking away at stuff while the 1/3 closest to handle makes for finer work. Though I do carry a Finn Hawk with it as well.
