Well, after nearly 10 years of beta-testing I think it's safe to say that "the finnish army knife" Sissipuukko m95
is my go-to blade, even tho I've tried to move to traditional mora-like knives several times I somehow feel handicapped if I don't have the rugged sissy with me to torture.
Funny thing is it's not a perfect blade for actually anything (except for maybe stabbing somebody, which I personally haven't tested).
-Feathersticks won't get as fine
-Processing game and fish is hard with a long (15cm/~5.9'') and thick (5mm/0.2'') blade
-It's too lightweight for a chopper (still a decent one)
-Sharpening would be easier if the blade was a scandi IMO
-And the back isn't a sharp 90 degree angle, it's somewhat rounded... something a file quickly fixed tho
Despite it's shortcomings as a proper bush blade, damn is it a rugged all-around tool, I don't know what the magic is behind 80CrV2 steel or the tempering but:
-digging & prying huge rocks from the ground
-cutting metal wire
-cutting that metal belt some wooden crates or cargo is tied together with
-cutting & chopping through bones of small game
-prying a jammed cartridge from a rifle (a stainless marttiini skinner chipped)
-scraping ferrorods with the edge
...still no dents or hacks in the edge...
Sure it dulls pretty much instantly when misused but sharpening takes seconds.
Other than that the long blade is handy when batoning and the grip is excellent.
Yeah, I don't carry many tools on me
