    My bad, that would raise manufacturing costs for sure.

    ANY Becker lol. Have the 2,4,7 and 17 favorite is the 17 had it pro sharpened the sheath is really good. All are upgraded with the awesome micarta scales. ESEE knives Ive had a couple. Their handles are flat sided makes it uncomfortable. The 1095 that both Becker and ESEE use is freaking outstanding. Keeps the cost down can you imagine what a BK2 would cost if it were made of M390 or CTS XHP?

    Ive got several other fixed blades mostly Bucks and Ka Bars. Ka Bar MkI is a surprisingly good all purpose knife for roughly 50 bucks. Its not huge like the USMC MkII. Had mine pro sharpened holds its edge extremely well. Sheath is good. I remember having the large Ka Bar fixed tanto and actually hacking a small tree down with it.

    Saw this video the other day. Thought the end product came out good, too bad they don't come right from the factory like that.

    Get the Busse Combat Knives, most of it is $300 and up, use it all you can, 10 years latter, sell it for the same price you pay or higher.

    I sold not too long ago my like-new back up Busse SJTAC and Ratmandu. The originals have seen hard use in outer-island sheep hunting, and spearfishing camps etc. Good stuff.

    I like the Mora's (Heavy Duty and Bushcraft black) that have been mentioned but if you are looking for a knife that feels more substantial then you might appreciate the Condor Bushlore or the Real Steel Bushcraft II with the Bushcraft II and it's D2 steel being a little less maintenance than the other high carbon steel knives mentioned.

    At the same time in terms of *maintenance*, D2 is in a whole different class when it comes to ease of sharpening for the average user.

    Mora knives are amazing but they are not a true full shank/tang knife sure the skinny tang goes all the way thru but not like the full shank on the Ontario rat 3

    Which I got mine for 65 on flea bay

    The Ontario is awesome I edc and have had it on my belt for months now

    You could never go wrong with Mora, I personally have 3 - Heavy Duty (carbon steel), Companion (laminated) and the latest Kansbol (laminated, stainless steel).

    Kansbol is very nice, feels great in the hand, it's very light, however the price is a bit too high, around 30$ https://www.amazon.com/Morakniv-Kans...ywords=kansbol

    I mean for 50$ you can get something more let's say interesting. I am keeping it in my backpack for hiking and trekking when the weight is essential, and I don't need my 10 inch blade macho knife

    I am not sure if you have already mentioned this, but you need to decide what steel you prefer as well > stainless, semi or good old rusty carbon If you live near the sea or the ocean it is highly recommended to get a stainless steel. In the lower price range you can find 440C, Sandvik, etc or a semi-stainless steel like D2 for example. This knife looks like a very good offer for the money:

    Mora Garberg! I have been using Mora Knives my whole life, since I inherited an antique mora from my great uncle, and for the money, Mora knives are an exceptional value. I love my Garberg, it is thick, full tang, scandi ground for easy sharpening, and very good 14c28n stainless steel.
