Magnum LST Jr - Fine Edge
If you're a fan of the classic folding hunter, you might as well step up to the caliber of the Magnum L.S.T. Jr. Its an unpretentious, get-er-done sort of field knife that lays low when you're stalking or still hunting, then stands tall when you're dressing out your buck or bull. Superior edge retention is mandatory with big game hunting. And the Magnum L.S.T. Jr delivers it in a 2 3/4" blade made of 420 high carbon stainless steel. But its still fairly easy to sharpen as needed. Choose from a fine edge in black or Mossy Oak Break-Up, or a serrated version in black. Pronounced finger grips in the fiberglass-reinforced thermoplastic handle work with crisp checkering to provide a high degree of tactile dexterity and long-term comfort. After all, sometimes those trophy critters can take a while to work up.

I've carried Gerber knives now for 20 years. I got my first before deploying to Desert Storm. Loved that knife, but left it on my truck box by accident and it fell off while I was driving. I replaced it with another that I gave to my wife after we were married and bought this one. I love this knife. It holds it's edge for a very long time. In the 8 years I've owned it I think I have had to sharpen it 3x and I really abuse my knives. When my son is more responsible and doesn't lose his cheap walmart knives I'll upgrade him to a Gerber as well.
I've carried one of these knives with me for about ten years now and it's never let me down. When I was younger I worked as a landscaper for 4 years and carried this knife everyday. I really abused it, cutting everything from roots and sod to wires and ropes, and it's still in near perfect condition. I love this knife.
