I think my next knife will be a Becker BK2.
Not light by any means, but tough, 1/4" full tang blade you can do anything with. The blade is a little long at 5.25" but for a knife you could use for chopping or batoning any sort of wood, it would be ideal.
More of a survival knife really.
The handle does come off, but unfortuantely the tang is not skelitonized.
There are a ton of youtubes on both the BK11 and BK2 Becker knives.
I used to cook 100% on a wood fire back years ago. Had a cool fold down swiss made ultralight bow wood saw. Still have it somewhere and it is a real wood cutting machine. Heavy by todays standards but still nice. Expensive back then too.
Over all the years I have wood cooked the most useful tools I have used were a swiss army knife with a saw, the folding saw above, IE a real saw you can cut some serious wood with.
Ideally for me, if I were going out where I would need to work with wood everyday, I would take one of two setups.
Light - a becker necker and a swiss army knife with a saw
Heavy for heavier work with wood - Something like a becker BK2, or a real knife that can take some abuse, along with a 1/2 oz buck hartsook
for light knife work and stuff a Gerber collapsable saw in the pack. One of these.
Amazing what you can do with this 3oz saw.
