A vital part of everyones daily carry and an important part of a 3 day pack, or as some call it a bug out bag, is a knife. Smoke Mountain Knife Works has a jillion knives in stock and always has some terrific sales. If you're in the need of a fairly large knife for your pack then take a trip to www.SMWK.com . This month they have a clearance on Smith and Wesson knives. Here is a 7 3/4 inch fixed blade knife for the astounding price of $7.99. They have 2 others in this series as well and if you buy 3 or more they are $6.99 each. Here is a more defensive style knife (one that can't be shipped to Kalifornia) at a mere 10 dollars. What a deal! They also have some great deal (10 bucks) for more traditional pocket knives too. One time I scored some Schrade X Timer lock back knives for a whopping 5 dollars a piece. Any way, a 7 3/4 inch knive is a very versatile tool to have in your possesion. Use it for dressing game, cutting smaller fire wood, self defense etc., etc. As Mikey was told...Try it, you'll like it!
