    Looking for a good fixed blade knife.

    I am currently building a BOB/Survival kit for my vehicle. I intend to include a nice quality fixed blade knife. Dont want to spend over $75.00, if possible. Would like to stay with a reputable brand. Probably like a Kershaw, Gerber, Benchmade, CRKT, Ontario, etc. Would prefer something with a kydex or carbon fiber sheath but not mandatory. Would also like to be able to attach it to MOLLE. A recommendation for a reatailer or other wise would also be appreciated.

    Rat Cutlery is the best out there. Stay away from Gerber and Ontario.

    I HIGHLY second the Rat Cutlery knives! I love my RC-4. All rat knives come with nice kydex sheaths and you can get them with molle attachments.

    Plus 1 for the RAT. I just got an Izula and I am really pleased with it. It's a small light weight skeleton knife that you can get in kit form with an injection molded sheath, molle clips, a fire starter, and several other pieces. It comes in several different options. Seems like it would be good for a BOB.

    Benchmade Rant

    I don't know if the RAT's are in the price range specified. My BM Rant was $59 including shipping. It's a good size, very comfortable and very very sharp. It's "Red Class" so it's not the best BM knife, but worth every penny. I carry mine on my chaps when i ride...

    another vote for the Izula. It will most likely spend more time on your hip than in your BOB though. Got my Dad one for his birthday a couple months ago and he's STILL playing with it.

    Yeah, the RAT Izula can get expensive. I got one to go in my jeep, knife and sheath only for under $50 delivered, but it fit in my pants leg pocket so well that now I need another one for the jeep. And one for a BOB. And one to go on my go to rifle case. And one to give to my grandson. This can get expensive. Seriously I only need one because it is always with me.

    I like the idea of the Ka-bar...but kinda like the sleek modern look of the RAT and Benchmade models. I am not ruling out the Ka-bar though. Keep suggestions coming.

    i have dozens and dozens of knives, from low end Chinese/Pakistan made stuff, to high end stuff costing over $100. the one knife that i've kept in my van is a cheap high carbon steel khukuri that cost me $20. easy to sharpen, tough, heavy, and will chop your soul in half, if you leave it lying around.

    Kabars are another good choice. come to think of it, they make a khukuri, too.

    IDK my gerber has served me very well - cut down trees to make shelter, worked as a spearhead lashed to a pole, cleaned game etc (all of this after my mil issued survival knife broke... I saved the pieces and turned it into the gear guys after training... I have had mine since '81 and they stopped making them (and started making what many refer to as "junk")
