Hi, I'm Ron and I'm a knife-a-holic. haha My favorite hunting knives are from a couple local makers. I have one from the late Jim Whitman and the current one I use is the MAK made by Three Dog Knives in Anchorage. Nothing like using a quality knife and I really like it when I know the person who makes it. Kind of makes it special. I just watched the episode of Mark Knapp winning the Forged and Fire Championship. Great job! I also watched one where that guy down by Seward made it to the final round but I think he lost. I got to check out his shop one day, nice guy. I would love to learn the art but will have to start out small. I wish I was up by you Mark amd could be a fly on the wall to learn a few things!
The MAK is a really nice outdoors or EDC blade. It is nice they offer it in a variety of handle material/color and steel. I am happy with mine too.
