    Question The "S" Just Hit The Fan & U Can Only Grab One

    One knife for everything. Well, Almost.............

    I'll let you have the LeatherMan as a freebie....so you'll already have your combo Nail File & Phillips Head Screwdriver & Ruler & Pliers...but, you need to grab that one (all inclusive) "serious bad" knife for everything else ~ Combat, General Survival, Shelter Building, Possible Knife Fighting, possibly minor digging, tool & maybe spear making...etc.

    No... you cannot take an additional 3rd cutting instrument like an added Ax or a Machete.
    Unless the Machete is the only other blade you would choose.

    What knife would be your choice?

    You can either post a specific knife by a maker or you can just give me an overall length and/or your preferred blade length and/or other desired attributes.

    Optional:
    > Why did you choose that one?
    > Stainless or Carbon Steel?

    OK let's just say that you already have this one with you (below) what other knife do you grab? Just keep in mind that whatever you pick you're going to have to lug it around with lots of other stuff so keep the weight in mind.

    SOG Seal Pup

    The SOG Seal Pup is a good blend of size, weight strength and edge-holding ability. Plus, I can carry my multi-tool in the same sheath.

    DANG, QK! This one almost had me screaming and yanking my hair out by the bloody roots. In the end, your definition, when carefully read DID narrow the choices, dramatically.

    "you need to grab that one (all inclusive) "serious bad" knife for everything else ~ Combat, General Survival, Shelter Building, Possible Knife Fighting, possibly minor digging, tool & maybe spear making...etc. "

    While in almost every instance I might opt for a folder like the Buck 110 Folding Hunter....anybody who knows what they're 'bout will know this one HAS to be a fixed blade. It also almost unequivocally rules out a pure combat blade like the SHIVA from Merc Worx. You would find it almost impossible to skin or clean game with a double edged blade. The SEAL or SEAL Pup are fine choices. Same for the venerable K-Bar. I think I'd probably go for the SRK by Cold Steel and not have any worries.

    I just picked up this knife. Seems like a decent survival tool so far. Only got to try it once in the field so far. I got the Bowie style, but may spring for the other type as well, if I like the bowie.
    I can build shelters, fight, make a spear , all kinds of stuff with this knife. I have used a kabar for years, but wanted to try something new and different.

    Hi Guy's, well since being here in the Philippines I have to say I'd go for my filipino bolo knife. I have witnessed incredible things done with these handmade bolos. Mine is an 8" blade and when we were remodeling the house some small ( 8-10" dia. ) trees needed to be cut down, well needles to say a few hard whacks on them and them babies were down. I now have a new found fondness for the bolo. I'm getting some more made for Christmas presents.

    All good choices for staying alive so far.
    The US Mil patterned a Bolo after the Philippine Bolo and it was a very aggressive bacon-saver blade style.

    More later.

    Any number of fixed blades would work for me:

    Reeve Project
    SOG Bowie
    CR's new Pacific looks to be a very usable design, typical of Mr Reeve.

    I'll take my Ka-Bar Camp Knife, which is attached to my hiking backpack (that doubles as my BOB).

    I'll say a WSK or any version of it.

    Probably my Bark River Bravo-1 or Gameskeeper. After all, that's what they're made for.

    Easy, my 18" khukuri, WWII style. Holds a good edge, heavy enough to be used as a hammer or hatchet, long enough to serve as a machete.

    Not a fair question, Backpacking I carry a leatherman, a greber folder, Glock field knife and a hand axe.

    But if just one knife probably something along the lines of a K-Bar
