im trying to decide on a large sheath knife that i can attach to molle webbing and im the most indecisive person in the world when buying stuff, i cant remember knife brands super well other than a few, but dont know whats good on sheath knives. a bayonet will not attach on my setup

2017-08-22 06:02:26 UTC  

you're looking for a fixed blade

2017-08-22 06:03:03 UTC  

what's your price range?

2017-08-22 06:04:26 UTC  

less than $200

2017-08-22 06:04:45 UTC  

i dont wanna be a cheapass but i dont wanna pay much more than $100 but i dont know the market and such

2017-08-22 06:05:01 UTC  

it just seems like something i should have

2017-08-22 06:06:17 UTC  

what do you want it to be used for?

2017-08-22 06:06:21 UTC  

general utility?

2017-08-22 06:06:29 UTC  

I have a spyderco paramilitary g2 on a clip as edc

2017-08-22 06:06:38 UTC  

i have a small SOG knive as well

2017-08-22 06:07:06 UTC  

but yeah the knife for after i run out of pistol rounds so to speak

2017-08-22 06:07:31 UTC  

i havent explored this part of the market for years, dunno whats good

2017-08-22 06:07:47 UTC  

that seems cheap, wonder if its shit.

2017-08-22 06:10:14 UTC  

I'd get a full plain blade, serration is annoying

2017-08-22 06:10:21 UTC  

but ka-bar is generally pretty good

2017-08-22 06:14:24 UTC  

yeah seems good enough to carry

2017-08-22 06:15:02 UTC  

mlok prevents me a bayonet so i ruled out looking at those

2017-08-22 06:15:35 UTC  

you have any large fixed knives you prefer?

2017-08-22 06:18:07 UTC  

those are pretty cool

2017-08-22 06:18:22 UTC  

no guard is a bummer but i might scope that brand out a bit

2017-08-22 06:20:52 UTC  

i don't like guards

2017-08-22 06:20:59 UTC  

don't fight with a knife

2017-08-22 06:21:01 UTC  

it's a tool

2017-08-22 06:22:41 UTC  

yeah

2017-08-22 06:22:47 UTC  

it is a tool

2017-08-22 06:23:01 UTC  

hmm well if i like guards, any recommendations?

2017-08-22 06:23:20 UTC  

im picking yuor brain to see what other knives you like

2017-08-22 06:24:04 UTC  

this brand has always gotten good reviews, never really handled one though, seems like a good choice on the budget end https://www.amazon.com/Morakniv-Bushcraft-Carbon-Fixed-4-3-Inch/dp/B009O01H0Y

2017-08-22 06:26:38 UTC  

yeah i like a classic k bar

2017-08-22 06:26:48 UTC  

id have to get case additionally

2017-08-22 06:26:53 UTC  

but thats always been a solid knife

2017-08-22 06:27:07 UTC  

the polymer might be cool too

2017-08-22 06:30:30 UTC  

I think these morakniv options are better TBH

2017-08-22 06:30:35 UTC  

steel looks better

2017-08-22 06:31:25 UTC  

i feel like someone else told me about that brand the other day too

2017-08-22 06:31:32 UTC  

im gonna scout out their inventory
