Default Fixed Blade Knives

I want to get a decent fixed blade knife to put in my pack. What does everyone have? I really dislike stainless blades, carbon steel is the way to go.

I was looking at something like the RAT-3 from Ontario Knife Company

a guy i hunt with in colorado has a cutco and by far that is the best knife in camp. he hasnt sharpened it in at least 2 years of hunting and he has skinned at least 3 elk and umpteen deer. i got one of the cabelas series buck knife with the gut hook, it is the teflon finish and it is supposedly there top notch knife and that thing doesnt hold an edge at all. i could barely skin one elk with it before i had to resharpen. i am definately buying a cutco for next year

best bang for the buck is a Frost's Mora. You can get military issue ones from alot of outlets. You can find them in hardware stores sometimes too. I think they are 10-15 bucks each. They are a swedish company. You can get them in stainless or carbon. I like them for hunting, because I invariably leave a knife laying on the ground after field dressing (rabbits and birds) and they are cheap.

Here's their website. http://www.frosts.se/

The knives Im talking about are under the "mora-knives" button.

I have a mini kbar. I have a full size imitation tanto kbar, and find it a bit big for regular use. Not to mention the authentic kbar is by far the highest quality knife I have. Sharp as a razor out of the box too.

I'm a pretty big fan of cold steel knives.

My 'pocket' knife is a recon with a tanto tip, 4" blade.

I also have a pretty BA recon1 with a tanto tip as well, about a 7" fixed blade.

I would go with the K Bar, because it is a Cutco knife. Those things are extremely high quality, extremely sharp, and hold an edge like no other.
