I made a big bowie styled one out of an old cross cut saw with elk horn handle and sold it to a neighbor for a good profit i thought but everybody that has seen it wants one.I guess i sold it to cheap.I'm working on some now that are made from a concrete cutting blade,hard stuff.But i don't use the big knives .I carry an old yellow handle case trapper.

I normally carry two folders and a quick sharpening kit when I am hunting. Here in Afghanistan I carry one folder, a multi-tool and a seatbelt cutter.
I know a lot of guys who like to carry a sheath knife on their kit, but for me it just takes up space where I could have more ammo and the billion pounds of stuff we are supposed to carry.
I was thinking about it, and this seatbelt cutter is shaped just like a gut-hook. I will try it out next season for that purpose and let you know how it works.

Captain, I understand. I started carrying a folder, it was a Buck knife when I was overseas, and I haven't quit. When I am hunting, or otherwise outdoors, I carry a sheath knife, at least one, I have one that I use for gutting, another for skinning, etc and another for general utility. None of these are really big knives, so I can wear one on my belt and the other goes in my fanny pack.

Bo, good call on the boat anchor. I have carried folders and sheath knives. I prefer the folders. If I am going out where I may need a true survival knife, I will take a heavy-bladed sheath knife, but these instances are very seldom. (Hunting in the mountains, pig sticking, family reunions, etc.)

Captain, that Benchmade is not even 8" long total. The standard Air Force survival knife is longer than that and it is a POJ (Piece of Junk)that will never hold an edge. I have a Benchmade folder, an Emerson CQC7, and I like the Benchmade knives.
I do not like really big knives and will not carry any of the Rambo knives. When Buck came out with their huge survival knife, I looked at it and decided if I wanted a boat anchor, I would go to Bass Pro.

Why is it that big knives bring out the small boy in all of us? (I am guilty of it too.)
I really like the look of the Benchmade, but I have never needed a "BFK" (big friggin' knife).
It would look really scary on my body armor/kit, but I think my 3" folder will work just fine for now.
Out of curiosity, what do y'all use these big knives for?

I have toyed with the idea of buying a Seal Pup for years, it is cheaper than that online, but I just never got around to it. When I get some cash I might. The knives I have are more than adequate for now. That Benchmade catches my eye too, decisions, decisions.
