Prior to discovering Esee, what were your go-to blades? I assume people still carry other brands, but I’m curious as to what. For me, back when I really used knives it was Cold Steel and Becker. Not the new stuff but back when Cold Steel used carbon V and Becker was made by Camillius. The Recon Scout was my primary carry for hiking and camping. The Becker Brute tagged along on most of my Winter overnighters while camping. The BK-7 was always a favorite, but the sheath was horrible to say the least. I’ve been carrying the Cold Steel SRK the past few weeks. Always loved the size and feel. This was one of my favorites, Cold Steel Trailmaster in Carbon V. A little heavy but back then I didn’t care. Prior the the CV I carried a stainless steel model These are the folders I carried. I beat the heck out of the Recon 1 on the bottom. A variant of the Voyager stayed on my side for over 20 years basically everywhere I went. There’s been many others especially the Buck Lite series but these are the main ones I carried as an adult. What were yours?
