    There sure are even more great knives out there now than there were in 2008.

    Peace Out.

    If I could only have one.. these are my choices ( in order):


    1844 classic Helko werk ( pathfinder) hatchet $117.00

    RAT-5 fixed blade $114

    MOra Bushcraft fixed blade $78.00



    If I had to go cheap:

    Adler Rheinland Hatchet $79

    Glock field knife $30

    basic Mora $19



    Wildcard:

    CRKT T-Hawk $69

    CRKT Mah-chete $80

    side note- Regardless of what I might select as part of a basic survival system, I am ALWAYS going to have a decent folding knife in my pocket. Today (right now) its a classic Camillus. Basically the Camillus version of the Buck 110

    Call me old fashioned.

    Or maybe it's just the lingering jarhead in me.

    But I still like the Kabar USMC knife.

    I had no idea blade serrations were old fashioned.

    I posted a Becker BK2 earlier in the thread which I still believe in but upon consideration I really don't think there is one single knife for all purposes. For lighter work around camp you can't beat a mora.

    Attachment 327232 Attachment 327232The Ka-Bar 1282, or 1292 are solid choices IMO for a little over $100, made with D2 steel. The 1292 model has a straight edge, & my 1282 has a partial serrated edge(pictured).
