    ^^^ what MCG said. I have a couple ESEEs and my 4 is used most all of the time for outside activities.

    Thank you all for the help. Like I said we rarely camp now but my kids are really getting into it. My wife grew up in California and her family did a lot of camping in big bear but I have only camped in Indiana. We will not be building our own shelter to sleep in so I am not looking for knives that I can beat on all day long for weeks on end. We will be in a tent and we want to teach our kids some of the camping stuff we know. I understand the concept of having a bunch of knives for every task but I also understand that just because people carry 10 knives camping they may still only use one or 2. My dad is a mechanic and has a draw full of probably close to 100 screw drivers but he grabs the same one every time. I have seen this man spend 20 minutes trying to find the one that his grandkid left out instead of getting a different one. Down the road I will probably pick up more but right now I will be spending a bunch of money on new gear so I am looking to spend around $100 to cover my needs. Maybe I should just buy 2 or 3 Mora knives for now and see which one I grab for most uses.

    ESEE 4 It is also my EDC knife too. I use the kydex sheath that comes with it and put soft belt loops on it so I can carry it IWB.

    Mora would be a great choice for an all around camping knife. I have several myself. Never had an issue with them.

    If youíre going to process any firewood of substance, the Mora just doesnít have the guts, thatís why I recommended an ESEE6 and Mora Companion together. The 6 will process any wood up to and including large saplings, and the Mora will make quick work of any and all smaller tasks, including food prep. ESEE will run a little over $100 and the Mora in the $20 something range, and you wonít NEED any other knives, youíll just WANT them.

    I bought a Benchmade Barrage 580 last year for camping and backpacking. Great little knife. Liked it enough that I bought another for my son-in-law for Christmas.
