I'm looking for a fixed blade knife to keep in my bag along with my EDC get-home gear and thought, "I know just the folks to ask." Forgive me if this is the wrong forum; I'm not necessarily looking for a defensive blade, but if required it might be used for anything.
This is the bullet list of requirements:
- Under $150.
- Must be usable for food prep around my co-workers in the company break room. So anything that looks super-aggressive is out.
- Overall size should be 8" or less. I'm looking at 4" blades for the most part, but I'll consider anything.
- I'd like a knife that I can also take camping.
- Extremely durable / should work well if required in a survival situation.
- Edit: Full-tang blade
So far, the Benchmade Bone Collector 15000 series is the top contender:

Or in a more modest blade:

What other knives should I be looking at?
