Just wanted to mention..first post on the forums!
To the point:
I'm in the market for a camping/hunting/survival knife and I was pretty set on the RTAK II but I stumbled upon the RD9. I've heard so many great things about this knife and now...I want it. The only problem is, I've heard that the RD9s marketed under Ontario's name have a taper starting from the handle. I'm going to be batoning/ chopping with this blade a lot so I think a full thickness throughout would suit me better. I'm just wondering if there are any RD9s still on the market made by Ranger Knives/ Justin and if they're going to be hugely expensive or not. If not, I'm going to have to decide between an RTAK II (full thickness throughout, I think...) and the Ontario/ Ranger RD9, so I need help with that if the first answer is no. I'm limited to about $140 with shipping, and need this thing soon, WA hunting season
is coming so close! Thanks a lot guys - Sam. P.S. Sorry for the not-so-tidy organization. lol
EDIT: Open to other knife suggestions as well.
