I have been looking on True swords.com, because it seems as if they have some decent prices.
I am planning on getting a good Ka-bar - 39.99
A cheap folder to use for junk jobs - 12.99
And a couple of these for various jobs - 3.99
These knives I'm going to take on my 2 month excursion, so I wanted to have several in case a few break, and I can leave a couple there in storage.
I already own a good swiss army knife, and a good multi-tool (I just have to find both!).
What type of sharpener is best/cheap these days? Just an ordinary whetstone?
