It will be my next purchase along with a Woodsman Pal to add to my hunting/hiking gear.
I was just given my first Buck knife a couple months ago. If you guys haven't used a Hoodlum, its a great blade. I carry a Kershaw folder on my belt every day and it has been one of the best knives I have owned. The spring assist makes tackling tasks one handed a breeze. Also I have a thing for tanto blades, thy just are more utilitarian than a clip point in my business. I had an automatic gerber that was passed out by the army and I loved it until it disappeared. I still have my army kabar (yes the army had one too) but I went with a kydex sheath for it over the leather jobber. I own about a dozen blades and they all serve a purpose different from one another. And no, none of them are samurai swords or crazy zombie decapitation knives or anything like that.

I have one of those... Got it as a Christmas gift lol... It rides strapped to the rollbar as a machete for clearing brush from construction sites.

I looked at the hoodlum, but it seemed too long in the photos I've seen. I'm trying to keep the total length around 10". Any longer and it becomes burdensome and I'll end up leaving it at home.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
