Yes, the Buck 119 is truly popular across a wide segment of those who engage in outdoor activities. The more experienced hunters and trappers probably end up with the 118.......another popular knife.Verminator, that used to be one of my favorite camping knives 'way back in the day. Still got it. Still works just fine. Good knife.
I'm familiar with the S-F knife but it never appealed to me for the reasons that Bearcat6 stated. There are many better designs available today. .
