Gerber makes some fine knives.

It's slick gutting them out because it sharpens like a razor and holds the edge well plus I was with Jack when he cut the metal so he made sure it fit my hand. I believe it was made in 2008 and I have used it on at least a dozen deer since then. The only thing I would do differently is a lighter handle color. It seems like the deer move around in the afternoon toward the end of legal. By the time you catch up with one you have shot and start field dressing it is dark. A head lamp helps but if you set the knife down with the black micarta it gets hard to see on the leaves, etc. Jack made them with white micarta as well. Here is one he had but I opted for black.

I wish my sharpened like yours. Mine is D2 steel and I find it hard to sharpen the way I would like. Could you have a lanyard hole cut to tie on something more visible?

Nice! I like Greber products! One of my favs i an old 4" slim hunter with a cast aluminum handle and is always close at hand. Another is a first addition LMF. This one travels in my truck 24/7:

But, actually, my go to all around travel / back country knives are two old school Buck hunters, a 119 and a 124 that I got about 50 years ago. I carried a 110 folder for 60 years or so, replacing the sheath many times but recently gave it to my son because I could no longer work the safety latch. Cleaned lots of game and made many walking sticks and camp fires with that knife.

Stock photos. My snazziest folder is a Buck Sirus, spring assisted liner lock, no longer made. Replacement is called the Rush, same knife with a skeletonized handle.

..................

My only fixed blade is the Morakniv Basic 546. I have two. I don't hunt or skin, so it's good for general purpose. Stainless, near indestructible, $ 10 online. Hard to beat that.

.....

They make a great field knife called the Garberg, but it's around $ 80.

Your folder looks a great deal like the Kershaw Ken Onion Leek. I carried one of these for years. Good design.

The biggest drawback to the Leeks is if you set them on a pickup back bumper and forget about them it disappears. I'm on my 3rd. I got one with a black handle this time and I haven't lost it yet. They take a terrific edge. My EDC is whichever one I throw in my pocket or on my belt for any given day.

I bought a Mora last year (just because it was there). It clips on my shirt pocket or the strap to my chest holster and is handy when needed and is a nice companion to my two or three others.

I went back and forth between the LMF & the Strongarm, but the weight difference for a carrying around knife was quite a bit. I've read the reviews that said it was a beast.

Like most of us outdoorsman impulse shoppers, I have knives that cost hundreds of dollars, fancy Buck knives and hand made knives with Deer antler handles and everything in between, but my favorite knife is a folding Gerber I bought at a sports shop or WalMart years ago for either $19.99 or $29.99. The handle is (I can't wait to hear the groans and UGhs and such!) a synthetic rubber that makes it practically impossible for the knife to slip from your grip. Finger impressions, Pops open using a thumb push, but I can draw it and open it in one movement; silently if I'm careful. The blade is a little less than 4 inches, or a little more than 3-1/2 inches, depending on how you look at it. It's a stainless blade that can cut shards from my magnesium fire starter, and it stays sharp longer than most of my knives. I have a sheath for it, but I can carry it in my pocket without it being too bulky. It's my hands-down favorite. In fact, it was the knife that made me a Gerber fan, where I was a die-hard Buck knife fan before. So you'd think with a love affair like that, I could find it right now to take a photo of it. We're renovating the house, so I'm lucky I can find my gun safe.
Is this where I'm supposed to say something about shaving wood nekked?

I hear from him from time to time on another forum. After loosing his wife he takes time to himself and keeps away from social media periodically. Next time he pops up I will let him know you were thinking about him.

Actually tried shaving wood with my Mora Companion, it worked pretty well, I was surprised, although it is very sharp!
