I hopped on this thread early on but it’s still hanging on so I’ll show my latest sharps.

I have a pair of semi-matched Finnish Puuko knives that have really won my heart over. 1095 Carbon steel of about 60 Rockwell and they just hold the edge forever.

The larger (8″) I’ve been using as a hatchet replacement for a few years (lops a 1-1/2″ limb in one swipe) when making blinds or as a camp knife, and the smaller (90mm – 3-5/8″) is just the right size for most field dressing and general chores. Light and sharp! It’s on my hip most weekends for the general sheep/chicken/garden hobby farm duties I have hereabouts.
