If you’re anything like me, your pocketknife often gets tasked for slicing food, if not in the kitchen, then in the field. For the past several seasons I’ve been carrying a Steve Hornady Signature Buck Vantage. I like it and have used it well, and, while the 420HC steel blade takes and maintains an edge okay, I just can’t get it razor sharp like I’d prefer. That and it’s a little heavy with a thick blade, which is fine for tough jobs. I was looking to start carrying something a little more classic, at least for everyday carry. I must be getting old, but tactical, door-piercing tanto-bladed stickers don’t appeal to me anymore (or really never did).
