By the way Planecat this one is made in the USA as are all the Gerber knives in their Gator Series.
Good to know. I have a gerber lmf2 thats similar to that prodigy. Very good design and tough.

I collect knives...old Camillus knives in particular. I prefer a rigid lockback knife with a single clip point blade for all-around camp purposes. I use a Camillus BSA single blade lockback for camping/hunting almost exclusively. I just really love USA made carbon steel knives. Not a fan of serrations, especially half serrations... prefer a straight edge.

If it gets lost or damaged you will not cry over it .
Went to check on price and they are discontinued...bummer !
Just when you get to liking something , you can't get it any more !
At least they still make Old Hickory knives...I like them a lot. I've got an Old Hickory boning knife that gets used a whole lot in the kitchen , very useful blade shape.

If you're still looking, there are a couple listed on ebay.

Whatever I have on my hip. Most often a Randall Bird & Trout (#8) because it's a good size or a Randall #1 (if it won't scare other people). My hunting rig is a Randall Yukon Skinner with an OM Blackhawk in 45 Colt, both with moose antlers or my 454 Casull Reeder SBH with a Randall 23 (buff horn). EDC (picnicking, etc) is a half-serrated Gerber folder and a Glock 27.

Can you tell I like (and USE) Randalls?
