small fixed blade recommendations?

I am looking for a small fixed blade knife, blade length 5" or less, overall length under 10 inches. I want it for defense, and utility. I dont want any custom job that i have to wait several months for, price isnt really inmportant to me, if I can get a great knife for 10 bucks great, if i have to spend a couple hundred that is ok too. any suggestions? I have been thinking about the
nimravus, Cetan, Timberline aviator, or possibly one of the cold steel models.
thanks for the input.
If a 2-3week wate is ok I can make you a custom from 420v or 3v with G-10 handle and a leather sheath for $175
