I have a variety of knives depending on the situation. I have the original russel knife and although it is my favorite I rarely carry it as its a family heirloom. For backpacking I carry a ontario knife company airforce knife. It is overkill for anything but its a brute and i'm not afraid to use it like a hatchet if need be. Usually my every day carry is a leatherman wave that has been my friend for years and for day packing i usually bring a light open frame smith and wesson neck knife that i got off ebay for next to nothing. Its interesting as its super lite, keeps a good edge, fits the hand nicely and has a pealess whistle built into the sheath. I do not like serrated blades so the leatherman fills the odd need for serration. I recently got a crkt ignitor that is a fun toy. It seems like a good knife but i havent had it long enough to see if it can stand the punishment.
I have been using mora knives for several years. I have used a 'mora classic no.1' and also 'frosts mora 760'. I like the traditional look of the classic mora no.1 but i find the grip is a bit too small for extended use as it makes your hand become tired as compared to a thicker handle that fits more comfortably in the hand. It is light so it makes a great neck knife and as Moraguy mentioned, the plastic sheaths of moras are very functional. I think a classic mora no.2 would be better since it has a thicker handle and also a wider blade to handle batoning a little better.
So, right now I prefer using the frosts mora 760. I have both a stainless steel and a carbon steel knife in this model. I almost always use the carbon blade since I can use it to get sparks with my firesteel or with a piece of flint. It is very comfortable to use and it has a nice scandi grind that shaves feathersticks well. It has handled batoning quite well over the years despite not being full tanged.
I love mora knives but i am thinking of getting a knife with a full tang and little thicker blade than the moras i currently own. I like the style of the Ray Mears Woodlore knife but that is way out of my price range. I have found a cheaper alternative on the net that is patterned after the woodlore knife. It is called the 'condor bushlore'. The reviews were mixed for the earlier models of this knife but it seems the 2012 edition is getting good reviews so far. Just wondering if anyone on this forum has experience with this knife. Here is a link to the 2012 bushlore knife:

Ég hef verið að leita að góðu spilavíti í langan tíma og fann loksins spilakassi.com þegar ég fór fyrst á vefsíðu spilavítisins og vann ágætis peninga með því að spila, ég var skemmtilega hissa, komst að niðurstöðu, borgaði fljótt og án vandræða, ákvað ég að þetta væri bara mjög heppið og hikaði við að spila í langan tíma
