    I want a Morakniv Basic 546, but the handles only come in blue, and blue orange combinations. Why a so called hunting knife comes in blue beats me. Has anyone painted their Morakniv handle? If so, how did it work out? I have a 511 with a black handle I thought about experimenting on, but...

    You have $25 to spend, you want to buy a good quality knife, so which one do you buy? What is the purpose of a $25 survival knife? In my opinion, knives in that price range are disposable. They are the knives that if lost or stolen are not going to be expensive to replace. From a survivalist...

    Just received a couple of these in the mail from Smokey Mountain Knife Works. I have not seen to much listed on here about them but they seem to be a heavy duty well made knife with an excellent quality leather sheath. If your in the market for a strong budget knife this may be an option for...
