Well, got one bad feedback on the Buck Intrepid that I expressed some interest in.

You see, just looking for a fighter/survival type knife to keep next to the night-stand, something to take on long trips, family road vacations, you know something to keep under the seat.

Unfortunately cost is an option.

I just looked at a Kabar Next Generation Fighter that appealed to me. What do we think about that?

Gary,

You may want to take a look at this:

The point is that everyone views survival differently. For me the intrepid would probably be more of a dive knife than a general survival piece - water survival perhaps. That 420 series steel offers good corrosion resistance. Not the best in edge retention - but that's the trade off.

The Ka-bar is a classic field knife design. It will work, but there are many good choices for a general purpose knife, look around before you buy.
