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.
Reminds me of another "survival" knife :yup:

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.

I had 2 Randall's back in the 50s to 60s era, IMO they will never be matched but were stolen also had a short Ka Bar but thats the past. I now carry at least 2 knives, replacing the Ka Bar was done by getting a TOPS Short Nighthawk, it has excellent balance and is a number 2 that attaches to my go bag. My number one fixed blade mainly for up close and wet work is my TOPS C.A.T. that clips to my belt then then my folders which the 2 favorites are OKC XD-M and the other is TOPS CSAR-T which is a real work horse and don't forget that little hatchet that TOPS sells, it never ceases to amaze me.
