    what is your favorite fixed blade knife ? if you can post details of it and a picture if you want.

    i only have two fixed blades a BG ultimate survival knife which is complete crap and a mora companion which at the moment is my favorite fixed blade. i have my eye on the Ka Bar USMC knife which will soon become my next favorite knife =)

    Knife research legion


    The picture is'nt mine, but i have the same version of the legion.... it's a 6.70 in multirole, 14.50oz, sleipner 60 hrc, g10 scales and kydex sheat; all made in italy, a very good knife

    i also like the knife research enki, but it's to small for my idea of a multirole

    It would have to be this Finnish Lauri puuko blade I mounted on a branch I found. It took me a while to finalize the handle shape, but it is now very comfortable, and the knife is great to work with. I have a smaller Mora 2/0 that is very nice, but this one means more since I worked on it.

    My ESEE 4. I stripped the blade then blued it with cold blueing and dyed the scales with leather dye.

    Wow this one is tuff . I don't have a bunch of fixed knives but what I have I really like . And they all preform great at there task . But my #1 has to be my bark river aurora . To be fare I like the aurora so much I almost never leave it home . But it did get a chip so I'm going to give the GSO 4.1 a chance to win that spot this year . And I do like the ESEE 4 a lot and if In a budget you cat go wrong .

    You are doing good with the Mora Companion. You might can get fancier, but you can't get more functional than a Mora in my opinion. I have four Moras, including a Companion MG. As much as I love all of them, the no 1 is my favorite. Simplicity and classic looks, plus it cuts like the devil. I have bigger knives and fancier knives than Moras in my collection, but when I head to the hunting camp this weekend for a two day tent campout and hunt it will be a Mora around my neck.

    By the way, if you like the Companion, but have the craving for something a little more robust the Mora Bushcraft Black is top notch. I love mine.

    Right now it is my 183 Contego. However I just purchased a BK-15, I have a strong feeling that will be my new favorite.

    It has to be the CRK Nyala followed by the ESEE 3 & 4.

    Never had a knife go through a white tail rib cage as effortlessly as the drop point Nyala. It stays sharp forever and the the handle ergo's are just perfect for me.

    Mora Allround 5.8in, it's everything you want in a Mora, and nothing you don't. Good extra-grippy handle, longer-than-normal blade, carbon steel, the only thing it doesn't have which would make it better would be a sharp-edged spine for use with firesteel. Even the sheath is ok, it's plastic with a leather-like hangar that lets the sheath swing so it doesn't get caught on clothing and such. (top knife in photo)

    For no other reason than look and feel, my favorite is the ZT 0160 Shifter:
