Here is my little creation you might find of some interest. If you can do without the macho looks of the typical knife sold, this ugly but practical utensil may be for you !
1. The knife on the left is typical of what I once used but I never found them that useful. Besides a cutting edge and (on another knife) a too small serrated edge, they are not practical for basic chores. Plus I always worry about breaking the tip.
2. The knife in the middle which cost me $3 is what I stumbled across by chance and used to make the final product. It has no cutting edge.
3. On the right is my ugly little baby. I cut it down to the length that suited me and added a cutting edge. Its features are . . .
A. normal cutting edge (on the right side).
B. long serrated edge great for cutting things like bread and also great for scaling fish.
C. the rounded tip and straight broad blade makes it good for spreading and even good for stirring the pot.
D. Weighs half of the knife on the left.
Might not be much use fighting off a grizzly or impressing your buddies, but for getting things done at the campfire, it's a good little workhorse.
