I also find myself using folders for cooking lately. I like the RAT 1 in that capacity; very kitchen-knifey. The Endura also, for sure.

Great photo.

A little bit on the pricey-side for a cheapskate like myself,  but A.G. Russell makes 2 styles of folding Santoku-shape "Folding Chef's Knives".  I own the older flat stainless handled model (the newer one has added Micarta handle scales) , and it is a marvelous tool. Very handy to have in my pocket while teaching cooking classes.

RAT 1 has a relatively narrow, longish blade in a decent size - should be perfect for this job!

And also, it's FFG... :)

Yep. RAT 1 is the most kitchen knife-y in my collection, but, even more importantly, it has aN open construction that makes cleaning it after messy food prep a breeze, especially compared to the narrow, closed, lockback-body of an Endura. 

So when juice from the Bismarck-filet gets in those dark places, it won't smell for the next 3 weeks ;)

Got a new knife by Victorinox. Anyone used this one before?

Looks and feels real nice in the hand. Not sure what the steel is, but it's got full Un-milled liners, I think made of aluminum. Lockback design. Came with a holster but doesn't have a clip for pocket carry. 

Looks damn good, I didn't know Victorinox was going into the more full sized folder market. Look very ergonomic!

A simple, realistic smart-phone shot, really nothing special. I like it though somehow.

Soo, pickled-fish anyone..? :D

Which sprint run Endura is that?

What's also interesting is that this is the knife Matt Damon uses on Mars in the movie "The Martian."

Very cool, haven't seen The Martian yet but I really want to! Thanks for reminding me! :) I wonder if Victorinox is going to try and compete with mainstream modern manufacturers like Kershaw...

Really dig this shot. It's pretty damn special, especially for "just" a phone picture. Damn nice quality camera on that phone if you ask me.

These aren't great pictures but they will give you an idea of the relative sizes of these things if you have never seen them in person. Two of the pictures show a Kabar Marine Knife, a Buck 120, and a Buck 119. The other shows a Kabar Marine Knife, a Buck 120, and a Cold Steel True Flight Thrower. I have had the 119 for so long I don't even remember how long, the 120, Kabar, and CS knife are relatively recent buys.

Finally got my mitts on a Kershaw multi tool. They don't make theses anymore, but I think they should re-consider this. It's a little bit heavier and bigger than your average multi tool, but for my job (farming) it's perfect. Tools include a locking visegrip, hacksaw, file, bottle/can opener, philips and flat screwdrivers and of course a Kershaw half serrated half straight locking blade. Keep an eye out on ebay for the Kershaw A100, they do come up used from time to time.

Here is my latest acquisition. LT Wright Genesis. Blade is made of CPM 3V Steel, Scandi grind to 0°, 4.250" blade length, .149" (3.79mm)thick, Matte Natural Canvas Micarta scales. 9" OL. The knife weighs in at. 8.5 OZ. Dark Brown Leather Dangler Sheath w/ 3/8" diameter ferro rod holder. The spine of this blade is sharpened to a 90° edge which scrapes sparks off a ferro rod like the 4th of July! It'll scrape wood like nobody's business and make fatwood into Maya Dust. The edge is a true 0° Scandi Grind, no micro bevel and is ridiculously sharp!😱 I'm very happy with my new toy!

I have the same but different steel. One hell of a bomb proof bushcraft blade. Enjoy it!

My version of the Norwegian saami knife.
Handle is made from aluminum, elk antler, leather spacers and curly birch. Blade is a Helle knives Lappland (12c27 Sandvik), of course a bit extra sharpened and polished by me. The sheath is a simple pouch style sheath with rabbit fur along the mouth, and 2 Greek letters burned in. 
This knife was bought as a present to send to Greece.

It's better known from it's Finnish name, Leuku. It's basicly the same thing, just regional differences.
