Would love to hear your favorite fixed blade, folding, bowie, and machete makers and why.
I will fight until my last breath. I will bleed every drop.
Re: Best brands
Fixed blade: Mora, Cold Steel, Bark River, Kabar, Condor
Folder: Spyderco, Cold Steel, Opinel, Victorinox, Wenger, CRKT, Kabar, Case
Bowie: Cold Steel
Machete: Cold Steel, Tramontania, Condor. The new Cold Steel machetes are big improvement over the old ones. I am big fan of the new models.
Re: Best brands
TOPs just came out with a machete that looks pretty sweet.
Most of my fixed blades are Western, and a couple Case.The reason is, it's what I have.
Praise the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle --- Psalm 144Ruger owners check out Hidden Content a great site to share and learn about your Ruger pistols.Check our sister forum DefensiveCarry.com Hidden Content A lot of good information and dialogue.
I like the older style classic buck fixed blades. I also like the Buck Vanguard a lot.
I folders, you can't beat a 110. I also like the Cold Steel black rhino and original AK47.
I like my Case marine fighting knife for my favorite bowie style. It is followed very closely by the buck 119 Special.
I have a Cold Steel Kukri Machete and I also like the Cold Steel shovel for machete work.
Fixed blade: TOPS. They seem to design knives that I can use for defense, hunting, and camping.
Folder: Spyderco. Simple designs, tough on EDC, and easy to sharpen
Bowie: Kabar. Hard to break a good Kabar, especially with a larger blade.
Machete: Not too sure, but probably Cold Steel. I haven't had too much time with machetes
-Just for kicks, I'll add my favorite brand for automatic knives: Microtech! Their prices always make me a sad panda, but man those knives are well built. Yesterday, for the first time, I got to handle a Microtech HALO! :smile: I had no idea they were as huge as they are. very well built, and when you deploy it, it kicks like a .22!
Large fixed blade...ESEE and Becker
Small fixed blade...Mora and Buck
Large folder...Schrade (US) and Buck
I have a preference for basic production knives...nothing too fancy. Just the basic knife.
I like my Imacasa machete and kershaw folder. the SOG fixed blade seems ok. I doubt many would say they are "the best" as people tend to like spendy priced brands of gear. I can't see spending 270 dollars on a pocket knife I will probably break or lose. lol
