M40's Blade Collection



      The best wilderness survival gear on the market!

Backyard campers and Rambo wannabe's... go buy a Bear Grylls kit. When you get serious about your wilderness activities... come see my gear. Hikers, mountain bikers, cross country skiers, ATV'ers, off-roaders, and others whose activities carry them far and wide... discriminating outdoorsmen opt for quality gear.


What do I recommend?

I've had a lot of emailed questions as to which blades I recommend, own, and/or dislike. I think I've made quite a few recommendations in my pages. I've also given quite a few poor ratings to certain blades and blade types. On this page, I'll merely show you a few great blades I happen to own. Some of these are blades that I made, and some are no longer made and are collectors items.


Here is a good sampling of my personal collection (fixed blades only). These range greatly in price/value, BUT... all are blades that I trust for hard outdoor use. Some go out with me regularly, and there are those that are now a bit too valuable to beat up!
