    Excellent choice.. I think Entrek knives are quite under rated. I carry a Ranger (9 in. blade) and have been very happy with the performance..

    Ok, I was swayed by Parker's last post and switched my order to a Badger (steelhuntingknives.com was very good about accomodating my wishy-washiness) - and indeed this thing is a chunk of steel. I see what you mean. This is perfect for car-carry. Thanks again for all the suggestions.

    I keep a Wilson Combat COP Tool and a Strider ED in my center console. I also have a TOPS Scalpel in the glove compartment.

    Jordan, always happy to help.

    It's NOT a prybar, but if you really need it to be one, it stands a reasonable chance of surviving the event, will sharp up nicely and it's 440C. They worked the bugs out of that cocktail decades ago.

    The only thing I'd recommend you do to the knife prior to tossing it in the clove box and forgetting about it is to give the blade a good going-over with Flitz or a similar metal polish. The bead blast finish is prone to surface fuzz/ light rust, but going over it with flitz tends to mitigate this quite a bit.

    Flitz it, clean it well, give it a lite honing or not, then put it in the sheath and leave it there til you need it.

    big enough to scare off/kill any wild animal or bad guy - 12" over all length

    razor sharp, good for cutting anything

    and at only $20 you could get two

    edit - oh, you already bought ur knife? never mind...

    Yup, you're right. It does have a very useful edge and feels great in-hand. I think it just looks like a prybar because of the length.

    Thanks for tip. I have some Flitz and will give it a once-over this weekend.
