Hey guys I'm new to this site and fairly new to prepping, I was 4 badges from becoming an Eagle Scout, I went to a quasi-military academy and am an avid outdoors man. I just turned 18 and I love ancient weapons like bows swords knives and axes. I would love some feed back about good brands and DIYs and such. Thanks!!

I dont really go by brands on knives and axes i look at the quality and the price , the best bushcraft knife ive found is an 11 dollar Old Hickory butcher knife that i modified myself by shortening it 2 inches and made a new hardwood handle for it . But if ya like spending money Kershaw,k-bar,esee,gerber,cold steel, and the list goes on ! you want to pick your blades according to the task you will be performing with them , if it be bushcraft and survival you want sturdy blade 1/8 in. thick or better and atleast 5,1/2 in. in blade length. No serrated edges then u want aother good fixed blade as a backup cus 2 is 1 and 1 is none says the saying ! then a good folding knife i also reccomend this to be non serrated . as for swords i have no idea.

I prefer choosing my knives and hatchets like you said by testing them out and it's worked so far. I'd love to have an axe made for me. I found a site that looks promising
