    I read the title as "Looking for a wife."
    What a difference.

    Those look like hunting knives, used to skin animals, not the regular kitchen knife.
    Lord have mercy.

  • Depending on the application...how about the Kukri knife?

    I believe this design dates back to the Greeks?



    The blade angle offers effective leverage for cracking skulls in hand-to-hand combat.

    That looks like a very robust pocketknife CC!

    I’ve been using a Kershaw pocket knife with a tanto point with some saw teeth at the bottom of the blade.  

    It has been very practical for me and has held-up well.

  • New York City, where I live, has a ridiculous "gravity knife" law which makes it illegal for NYC residents to carry folding knives. And fixed-blade knives have to be 4 inches or shorter.

    I've been looking at cheap fixed-blades and, based on reviews, looks like a good one.


    Any recommendations for fixed-blade knives with 3-4 inch blades, under $50?

    The recent stabbing spree by a mentally ill person and the brilliant response by quick acting citizens to grab folding chairs and crates to subdue this guy until he could be arrested and carted away by the police was awesome. This crazy guy was sporting a huge kitchen (butcher) knife. I bet his mom was upset that her favorite knife was stolen by her son.
    Lord have mercy.

  • For fixed blade, the already mentioned Moraknif is a great option. The value-to-quality ratio probably can't be beat.

    Another great option is a Marttiini made in Finland. It also comes with a nice leather sheath. I have the model Big Game Condor with a 5 inch blade and it's around $30. You might be able to find a model with a smaller blade. I have both the Moraknif and Marttiini.

    Another great option is Buck knives. I have several Bucks.

  • I used to own a beautiful buck knife. I love how it folded up safely so one can place it in one's pocket. I had no idea it was now illegal to carry one in New York City. Pretty soon are going to outlaw having hands?

    Sounds like you owned a Buck 110. That's probably my favorite knife of all.

    Wow! Right on key.

    I didn't know the name, but I googled it just now and that was the exact knife I owned. I lost it somehow and now I do not own a hunting knife:

    Unless their laws have changed for the better, Sweden outlaws the use of even unarmed martial arts in self-defense.
