The Gaucho, were the South America Cowboy. His most prized possession was his knife. His only tool used for everything; from cleaning his horses hooves to settling a disagreement!
There is something very reassuring about having a hard use tool on your belt that could withstand truly extreme abuse! Now no doubt some "bombproof" folding knives exist that push the limits of the folding knife toughness, but it does seems that the small size and light weight of pocket knives, which are the only advantages in carrying one of those, have very limited uses and durability! For just a small increase in weight, you could carry an even more “bombproof” fixed blade knife! Gaucho Style!
Fixed blades are much more durable and are a much better choice if you are looking for and need a hard working tool! Fixed blade knives are king when it comes to longevity and durability!
