Parry Survival Blade
#1
Did anyone happen to catch he episode of Apocalypse 101 where they talked about the value of a good blade? While I agree to this statement in general, they recommended a Parry Blade by Samuel Staniforth Ltd which fetches over $300! I'm thinking that there are lots of other well made survival knives out there to be had for maybe $100. Does anyone have good recommendations for a trusty blade? I still have my heart set on a nice Ka-Bar with the new serrated blade but is it really only good for fighting and not survival?

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

$300 isn't THAT high for a good fixed blade. You can get a Swamp Rat Rodent 6 for under $150 though.

True, but $300 is more than I am going to spend on a good knife...LOL!

I like Kabars. I have a couple full-size, a TDI, and a Last Ditch for EDC.

I put hook velcro on the sheathes of the TDI and LD. I have loop velcro on the back of my belt (for my CB ST V-clips), so I can orient the knives in any location or position, and they are very comfortable to carry. I think all but the Last Ditch are made in USA.

Ka-bar's Becker line offers some damn stout tools.

I wish i would've seen that knife before i bought the Gerber I suggested, I'm not a big fan of serrated edge's. American steel is American steel they are usually comparable..

It says nothing about full tang but i would think it's a safe assumption.


I still might buy one. can never have to many basics

I was thinking exactly the same thing. There's no way I'd pay that much for a knife made out of 420 stainless.

My current camp/woods knife is the SOG Creed. The sheath that comes with it sucks and if you're left handed, it's useless. I had a Kydex sheath made for it. You can pick the Creed up for less than $150 if you look around. It is a super sharp, beefy knife, more than capable of daily camp chores and personal defense (if necessary).
