    I am looking for a new fixed blade knife. I basically want a knife that can stand up to large amounts of abuse. Good edge retention is a plus, as well as the ability to sharpen. Other then that I'm pretty open to suggestions.

    Most knife for the money: Mora. Cody Lundin, famous survival instructor, swears by them, and carries one as a neck knife. Check out Ben's Backwoods on line as a source.

      What are you willing to spend? For a little over $150 you can get a semi-custom knife from Legler knives. I have used one for years, and often give them as gifts. Many knife makers have admired it. In fact, I am about to order another in case, God forbid, something happens to Bob Legler. My preference is the Beaumont.

        Sourdough Dave is right on for a bargain knife. When hiking and don't plan on needing a knife, I throw a Mora in my pack. They weigh a LOT less than a Legler.

          100 dollar area is about max... Once again I would prefer a utilitarian knife, preferably not wood handles and a steel with qualities similar to D2. Put frankly I want to be able to beat the crap out of it without feeling bad. (Within semi-reasonable limits)

                  look at an ESEE 4

                  Those are seriously tough knives and tough steel, plus a lifetime warranty if it breaks, no matter what you did to it. Plus their made in the USA

                    My uncle had a World War Two Cattaraugus knife with a leather washer handle.
                    In between hunting seasons, he used it for digging in his garden and often left it sticking in the ground overnight.
                    He would clean it up and sharpen it for deer season.
                    I think the company is still making knives.

                        Mora is a good one, so is the cold steal pendelton hunter line.

                          I love my Diamondblade. Pricey but it is the last knife I'm ever going to buy.

                            The suggestions for the Buck Special and the KaBar seem right to me. Those are two tough knives.

                              I second the Buck 119 and i also would recommend the Pathfinder.
                              Any of Buck knives are great values. My 119 is 1965 vintage and still going strong.
