We haven't had any good knife discussions lately. I'm going to give you some parameters and let you provide your fave.

This has to be a fixed blade
You only get one knife (but you can still have your EDC pocket knife)
Approximately 5" blade length (I'll give you an inch either way to play with)


My pick is the Becker BK2 by Ka Bar. I love this knife and despite those who take the black coating off, I like mine with it.

animalspooker: Sir; always interesting :) I have several. Gerber StrongArm (I think the name)
KBar (of course) another Gerber mounted to bag.
2: I have several Mora's; in each bag;
3: hunting and fishing bag
4: in tool boxes
5: in truck

So much compromise Knives play a lot of daily uses. Beating a log for firewood,
digging out grubs, chopping brush, etc dulls quickly the best
Frozen-wet-shivers trying to cut anything with a dull knife sucks
Sharpening takes valuable time. A spare kept sharp in invaluable:)

With spares; another set of hands aren't useless
Broken blades happen. Rendering them almost useless

Pondering

Cold Steel would be my first choice, without hesitation. There are a couple models with 5" fixed blades.

Personally, I have the Recon Scout model in several BOBs.

Hardly. It looks to be about 7.5" long.

I've got a Cold Steel tanto that's my do anything I need but my favorite knife of all is this little gem. It's slim enough to slip between ribs and long enough to puncture the heart or a lung. And it's small enough for me to carry it in a place most men never expect a knife to appear from ;)

If you happen to be an "old school SCAdian", you might recognize the maker...Shadowmaker custom made it for me the year before he passed away. Without taking a single measurement...
