Sure as hell wouldn't be a folder. One of these:Imagine it finally happened! Zombie Apocalypse... or total breakdown of law, civil war/unrest or rebellion type of situation.
Scenario: You have short time. You run back home. Grab you favorite gun/rifle, pack the backpack with ammo, food, water, essentials, etc... And the last missing piece - a knife! Which knife are you taking with you? A folder? fixed blade?
For me personally that knife has to be an all purpose, any purpose tool, hard use and heavy-use; good for prying, stabbing, hard hitting... it should be a knife, a machete, an axe, a sword, a slicer, a chopper, a bit of everything good packed together in a single knife and under 10oz weight...
I would be stuck between: ColdSteel 4Max, Medford Fighter, Medford Proxima and Medford Praetorian T... something with super heavy 0.19 inch thick blade, 4+ inch long blade (the more the better) with full titanium body/frame handles (I don't think G10 or CF is appropriate for this type of SNAFU situation).
I think for me Medford Praetorian T might be the winner...
What's your ultimate apocalypse knife in this situation???
........How many rounds does the typical owner stock for each firearm? How many rounds are currently in inventory at retailers? So you might run out of pew pew, but chances are the guy you pull your machete on has not.
A quality 4" fixed blade and SAK will do IMO. If I'm proven wrong, it's probably time to take a break anyway.
These fantasy threads are great. Consider the 393 million firearms in the USA for only 372 million people.

Threads like this are about firearm backups, IMO. Guns would obviously be the first line of defense.
If you ran out of ammo, I don’t think a 4” fixed blade and SAK would cut it. That’s what I carry most weekends though, so it would likely be what I had on me if anything happened.
