    Looking at getting a fixed knife in the 5-7 inch range. Thinking about the buck 119. Don't want to spend too much. Any other suggestion would be appreciated.

    My Becker BK-2 is a beast of a knife at 5.25" long and .25" thick. Not that great at delicate tasks but can chop down tree. What are you gonna use it for?

    I also have a 119 and it is a decent knife in that range. Not as tough but more capable at smaller tasks.

    How much is too much? It would help greatly if you specified a budget.

    Will you be skinning?

    Check out Falkniven F1, Bark River Gameskeeper, Gameskeeper II and ESEE RC-6 too.

    A BK-7 would cost around $70 if you want to go up around the top end of your size range. It's a pretty capable knife, mine came VERY sharp too.

    +1 on the Becker BK7.

    Seems like it's just what you're looking for.

    Buck 119 from the 70's in 440c.
    You'll be delighted with it.

    For the $50 price range and a big blade (9 1/2",) try the SOG Fusion Jungle.

    If you want a 5-7" knife then yep - Becker BK-2. You also say you want it for hunting though and I'd argue that 5" is more blade than you want for cleaning big game. If that's your primary focus then 2-3" is more like it in which case the BK-11 might more useful to you.

    A friend of mine bought one of these when he was first getting into knives and didn't know anything about them. He broke it the first time he tried to chop into a piece of wood. Avoid this junk.
