Belt Knife

You should never go into the woods without a good belt knife.Here is a pic of my belt knife.It has a 7 inch blade and the boxwood handle is carved in the image of a pig.The knife was made by Kyle Wiilyard of Old Dominion Forge.Kyle is a master of his craft and can temper a blade better than Lucifer hisself.Folding knives are nice to have but should never be your primary blade.A good belt knife need not be fancy but it does need to have good blade and a secure handle.Jon "Smitty" Smith of Wisconson makes very good copies of French and English trade knives.I have two of Smittys knives and i prize them for thier quality and function.
