    Default Combat Knives?

    I have been looking around at some of the nicer combat knives and am surprised at the lack of quality especially at the 300 usd range. Ie- Chris Reeve Green Beret sweet looking knife but really brittle.

    since I really dont know much about knives I wanted to ask some of you what your suggestions would be.

    I was looking at the Cold steel line and though they look nice they seem really heavy and over hyped .

    I am going to hong kong tomorrow so I think i will look for a K-bar they seem to be a very well regarded pig sticker.

    cheers all .

    Ka Bars are always good. I've heard good things about fairbarnes (spelling) but they tend to be too big for everyday carry. So you may check out the "baby" version. I havnt heard anything too good about cold steel. Best of luck.

    apparently the guys working the sharp end mostly carry folders, benchmade was what i am told but I am looking for a workhorse fixed blade.

    I have had two benchmade and lost them both..

    You can ask in edcforums.com but the Ka-Bar are the most used in different armies in the world, specially the US Army and USMC.

    Shayne,

    As field knives, I have used the K-Bar Next Generation and the Boker Applegate Fairburn (Boker offers pocketknives and hunting knives.).

    They did the job very well, but not as good as my Fallkniven F1

    If you want a 'fighting' type knife, then the Boker Applegate is very nice.

    Have fun !

    Best regards

    Russ

    Some years I own a Recon Tanto by Cold Steel. I think it is one of the best I ever bought!

    If I thought it would not get me arrested, I'd carry this.



    I've been drooling over this knife for a long time. I may just end up buying it to keep it on my nightstand as a 'just in case' knife.
    Like they say in the description: this knife is not a general purpose knife. It was designed for 1 purpose only.
    And I am willing to bet that someone seeing this knife would lose motivation very rapidly.

    I own three knives that could fit into that category:
    A (relatively) small Khukuri (meaning the blade is still 8-9 inches)
    A Cold Steel Recon Scout
    And a Kizlyar Scorpion

    Out of the three for the best multipurpose destructo proof knife I'd go with the Recon Scout.
