I have had a number of knives in my life but I would like to get one knife to be my primary. My problem is you cant know without review what blades will keep an edge the best. I am not so worried about price as you pay for what you get. My pa had a knife that he could go a whole season (elk, deer, pronghorn) and not have to sharpen it till the end of the season and carried it for over 60 years. (the company went out of business years ago). I know there are quality knives out there and if you could tell me your favorite fixed blade knife company and how they performed I would greatly appreciate it.
