WM1
that's my WM1, but thanks :) I agree wholeheartedly that a small fixed blade knife + saw is a great combo- I'm going to have to play w/ the military wire saws- I had one a long time ago ...

600 for solo
I get by just right w/ the 600 for solo cooking (also just the right size to nest my stove (Esbit/wood), windscreen, lighter, spork, fuel)- I added a "custom" lid to it as well

cap 1 vs merino
I should add I really like the lighter weight merinos, but I prefer them in cooler (fall/spring) to winter conditions- if I know it's going to be warm, then the Cap 1's get the nod I gue...
