    I’ve been lurking in this thread… =+) Thinking of adding one of those cool knives to my Christmas list for my husband. I think he would like one of those. He has tons of pocket knives but this might be a good addition.

    A good quality fixed blade is a key survival tool. They do a different job than the folders. I’m sure he’d love one.
    However, don’t forget the old tradition of giving a knife.

    KA-BAR is a great knife. I have one and love it, they are a very tough knife, hold a good edge and are a workhorse. I think you’ll be very happy with it as a survival knife. 🙂

    weew! I wish I can afford that.

    I have a gift for enraging people, but if I ever bore you it will be with a knife.

    I have many knives stashed in my separate gear bags. But the two that I like the most are my KA-BAR that served me in Iraq and my Gerber LMF II Infantry knife. As far as sharpeners, I have several readily available, three are diamond sharpeners, two are wet stones. One of the diamond sharpeners is on the sheath to my LMF II another is a gerber pen-style and the third is a tool-logic serration sharpener with map light.

    I have two different knives for the two different environments I live in. My field survival knife is the Glock Field knife. Light yet rugged, usable saw on the back, holds an edge well, and cheap enough not to cause sleepless nights worrying about losing it. Since the dangers change in town, my urban survival is the CRKT M-16 with a Tanto blade. Small enough to fit nicely in a pocket, strong enough to poke through car panels, and impressive looking enough (without looking hollywood) to start the psychological battle before the real one. The extra safety on the liner lock effectively makes it a fixed blade until you want to close it.

    What about a good machete? Even a cheap one, change the grip or wrap it. Makes a great melee weapon. Not that I want to get that close in combat. Harbor Freight sells three for under $10. Can’t go wrong at that price and good trade/barter material. 😀

    Try to add a small pouch to the outside of your sheath. You can put a diamond sharpener, multiplier, lighter in it. Tie it on the sheath with a long piece of 550 cord , and secure it with some Ranger Bands .

    My preferred survival knife is the Sec-ops * machete. It is a true workhorse!

    Epoxy a sharpening stone to the backside of the sheath so it rides against your leg. Use or attach a pocket to the front for your magnesium block fire starter.

    I have bought a couple of sheaths from SURVIVAL SHEATH. http://www.survivalsheath.com/sheaths/index.htm

    They are great!

    I use a double layered subload MOLLE on my left thigh that hangs from my warbelt.
    http://www.highspeedgearinc.com/proddetail.php?prod=HSG-MDLP&cat=40
    It is an empty panel with a survival sheath tucked inside and then screwed to the panel. This allows me to ad an assortment of MOLLE pouches to the outside.

    I usually have the EOD pouch attached.

    I use it for my survival kit. It has several pockets and elastic loops inside to keep everything organized. I carry a couple of firestarters, matches, folding knives, band aids, snares, fishing kit, SS mirror, sewing kit, tweezers, flashlights, water purification kits, steel wool, batteries, etc… All of it organized for easy retrieval.
