    Current belt knife .

    For the last year or so I have been sporting the Helle Alden as my belt knife . Out of all the other knives I own and have worn , the Alden is the one that I feel at home with . Just the right size and weight and I don't really notice it on the belt . So what are you gents sporting at the moment ?


    I had the machete out that day for some clearing work .

    Nice knife there barra. My favourite (and only remaining) fixed blade is the Helle Nying. It's a strange stubby looking design but very comfy and easy to use.

    The same knife I always carry, when you have made the best choice for the job in hand, there is no point in changing it.

    I am a tool heavy guy and have spent years building up a collection of knives.

    When hunting I tend to carry two belt knives, my CS Trail Master san maiIII and my CS Master Hunter san maiIII


    for everything else I go with my TOPS Power Eagle, which also has a Falkniven WM-1 added to the sheath (but this isn't set up as a belt knife, rather as a baldrick carry), the belt knife I would add to this to round out the load out is my Mora Bushcrafter 2010




    I would also have a folder and Leatherman in my pockets (bush work would have me carrying my ZT 0920 most likely)

    it is IMHO the best Mora produced. Excellent handle ergo's and a compound scandi grind adds a heap of versatility.
