I'll second the CRKT Large Kasper.
"Cheaper than dirt" has them NOW for 30.00 bucks.
Better than most custom $$$$$$ knives.
Steel's not the best,but it will take an edge .
I teach knife fighting and have a long background using edged weapons.
Believe me,it'll be the best 30.00 bucks you ever spend.
The knife is a TANK.
The grip is the best.
The design is the best."For fighting"
I have the Carson Custom Kasper.500.00 knife as well.
Liked it so much I bought several of the cheap ones as trainers/abusers.
