My Victorinox Pioneer that I bought in the early 80s has been my favorite EDC pocketknife of late. It’s a good size for pocket carry, has a very useful assortment of tools, is nearly indestructible with its alox scales, and is sheeple friendly.
In contrast to the Trail Hawk, the Ontario machete came as dull as a butter knife. In a few places the edge grind didn’t even meet — the edge was actually flat. The parkerized finish on the blade was even and looks good, however.
I bought a tomahawk at Dixon’s Muzzleloading Shop in Kempton, PA about 10 years ago. For the past few years I’ve used it as a garden tool. The relatively thin blade chops through the wood on my property well.
