    Kabar USMC Fighter, obviously. I'm stuck on the couch with crutches for the forseeable future, so I would at least FEEL like a badass.

    I'd be spending all my money on bullets, beans, and plates.

    I already have so many knives, but I'd most likely put my Cold Steel AD15 in my pocket, and then carry my CRK Behemother and call it good.

    Shouldn't everyone have a medium to large sized fixed blade in case something happens? :D

    Forget about knives; just bend over and kiss your behind goodbye! ;)

    Well, it'd be either that or the AD10. I would pick either, really, whichever I was able to grab first. The steel is good (S35vn), and more importantly easily sharpened, have a bombproof lock (Scorpion or Triad), and they're well made of really tough materials. Most of my knives are higher end pieces that I wouldn't want to have to depend on. That's not to say they couldn't do it, but I just don't tend to think of my high-end knives as the ones to grab if real abuse is on the menu. I'd rather abuse something semi-disposable like a Cold Steel. That's just me!

    This is, well, an interesting thread, Smiling.

    If I had to travel light on foot, I’d attach my Recon Tanto and Mora Kansbol to my belt; the ESEE Izula and Recon 1 go to my pockets. Probably not the most optimal setup, but those blades pretty much cover my needs without weighing me down too much. Remember that there’s a whole lot of other stuff needed for survivin’ other than knives.

    If I had a vehicle, I’d probably add a Kailash Kukri for large knife applications and an SOG Fasthawk for emergency situations.

    Nah, my stash of proton torpedoes should be good.

    WW III huh? Okay, I'll play into this fantasy, probably the Randall No. 15; That and a SAK. But I have others that would be just as capable and it all depends on the developing situation as I don't see myself as a "fighting man" at this point in my life. Unfortunately, someone semi-skilled would probably just take the Randall from me.

    Unless the fight was brought here, I'd probably just carry what I do now.

    Charlie Mike and I kicked around the idea of a folding, belt carry halberd with four triad locks. Three locks for the pole and one for the blade.

    I'd carry that for the apocalypse etc.

    However, the correct answer to this question is smatchet, preferably rostfrei.

    I don't have a smatchet, but this beauty made of high quality CPM-FOAMV should do well;

    How is the edge retention of this CPM-FOAMV?

    Eyeballing it, it looks like it can easily go through 100 trees before even slightly losing its sharpness.

    I've felled sequoias with it. Stabbed a few nephews as well.
