    Look for a new hunting knife. Wanting a bowie style blade. Was looking at the kabar in foliage green (even though its a clip point) or the boker magnum bowie. anybody got any other options they have used? gonna be used for deer hunting and camping

    I have several ka-bars. They are very sturdy and dependable.

    KaBar, Cold Steel or SOG are all good choices

    SOG is way too expensive for my tastes. I dont need to spend 300 bucks on a knife that im going to beat the hell out of. I like kabar and i like the ESEE izula 6

    right on ka-bar and also look into becker knife and tool the bk-9 bk-7 and bk-2 are awesome knives buy a set of micarta handles and they are as nice! and tough as nails easy to sharpen and cheap.

    here is my bk-9 it's a beast of a knife! and the littler one is my bk-2 and my becker necker some of the best knives i have ever owned. btw ka-bar makes them for bk&t so it's there steel and heat treat.

    becker invented the sharpened pry bar then he partnered with ka-bar to use one of the best 1095 steels out there 1095 cro-van it's time tested and bad ass never had an issue with it. the most expensive knife i posted was like 65$ can't beat that with a stick.

    SOG Knives aren't that expensive. They are pretty high quality and fair price... best bang for buck.

    The Navy Seals use the Seal 2000 knife.

    $85.00 for SOG Seal Team Elite http://www.botachtactical.com/sogseseteel.html

    I have the seal team elite and love it!!!

    i find sog to make more tactical knives. i like survival knives seeing as thats how i use them at camp to process wood and anything else i need them for.

    i don't have much use for a tactical style fixed blade if i was over seas sure one wuld be on my leg. i have tactical style folders i carry everyday like my strider and my zero tolerance which are bad ass but, for my needs i lean toward a more functional fixed blade instead of a fast light almost useless tactical fixed blade.

    for hard use folders you can not go wrong with zero tolerance.

    for fixed blades i'm very partial to my bk9 and bk2 i'm ordering some nice micarta for them soon as well :) with the bow drill divet in them for even more functionality. i had used a divet style esse before and it worked out awesome i was quite impressed with it.

    some of my folders i have and really like a lot figured i would throw these in here for you as well some are cheap to purchase but, have been bullet proof and some are more pricey but, are true hard use folders.

    ive been leaning towards the Buck 119 special. more of a hunting/outdoor blade. where as the kabar and the sog seal elite are tactical blades. ive already got a smaller tactical fixed blade that I EDC (the CRKT Sting)

    i have a buck 120 general its a great knife and it throws showers with a fire steel as well which is an added bonus.

    i can almost assure you though a classic style buck will not be as durable as an esse ka-bar or bk&t tool however. on the upside i think buck has an amazing heat treatment on all their blades.
