    a good knife needs to be able to chop a 2x4 in two, then cut a non weighted one inch manila rope in two with one swipe. forge it from a railroad spike.

    A half ass knife must be able to field dress a deer and still have an edge on ot after field dressing the deer.

    A knife must be able to quickly put an edge on the knife.

    One must be able to use a knife to shave with it.

    A knife must be able to be used as a utility tool as like a pry bar.

    The best do it all knife is the USMC Ka-Bar.

    A very good friend of mine has given me many small utility knives that I treasure.




    I also have real swords for those who want to play at not big enough!

    The best do it all knife is the USMC Ka-Bar.

    No fricking way is the Ka-bar the best. They snap in two at the rat tang all too often. Also the blade profile is too thick to get a razor edge on.

    A full tang 1095 knife like the ESEE line is what you want in a fixed blade for wood prep and combat. A thin razor sharp Mora is what you want for everything else.

    I've never seen or heard of a K-Bar snapping in two.
    It's specifically designed not to break but bend.

    How well does the knife keep an edge on it and how long does it take to put an edge on the knife ?

    As we learned from WW ll, Korea and Vietnam, a combat knife is rarely used as a combat knife in combat. It mostly used as a utility tool.

    When I was assigned to Sub Unit One 1st ANGLICO in 1969, I rated being issued a K-Bar.

    During WW ll any Marine who didn't carry a M-1 Garand and a bayonet was issued the K-Bar.

    From the video the blade has a serrated blade so it's differently not a K-Bar issued by the Marine Corps and the dude in the video probably never saw an hour of combat in his life.
