A.G. Russell Sandbox Bowie. It's blade is wide enough to be decent at digging, it is lighter by a few oz than you would expect in a knife of that size which makes it not great at chopping but it works. Long enough to be useful at light brush cutting as well. Good steel. Has a hollowed out compartment in the hilt. I'm still deciding what to put in the hilt. I'm thinking some fishing line wrapped around a very small zip lock bag of hooks maybe. Maybe a fire steel as well if I can find one small enough (e.g. just the steel, no handle).

That seems pretty sweet,but 300 dollars? If you have the money I suppose. I'm looking at this now. It seems to be pretty good at most things. http://www.kabar.com/knives/detail/26
I would assume that most people here have used it judging by its reputation. I'm almost leaning toward the small version, because i'm not entirely sure outside of fighting purposes, why the blade would need to be that big.

The laserstrike looks pretty bendy in the blade. How thick is it?

The cheap Mora type knife is the way to go IMO. You can get a handful of them for the price of a better knife and I really can't see one knife being better then a handful. The dangers with having one knife when the blade get damaged is much higher then the quality you get from a more expensive knife. I will say that the $1 knifes probably are so bad you shouldn't buy them but when you can get a handful of knifes for $50 I can't see any reason for buying a single knife. My sharpener cost more then the knifes I sharpen on it!

Frosts of Mora. I've had it for more than 25 years and it spent about 18 of those years laying around out in a paddock, exposed to the elements.

I can get it sharp enough to shave with, so it's just fine for skinning rabbits.

I like my bowie ,full tang and a heavy blade .
I agree, several blades are best especially if we are talking INCH.
one of the fun projects I am doing is a walking stick sort of , that actualy has a number of ends to fit it .
A shovel head , just slightly undersize,
a pruning saw ,
In the process of making a spear head from spring steel .
I have annealed it and have a lot of forge work to do but it's taking shape.
The staff is aluminum tubing, kind of a heavy wall but I hope to make it quite durable.
Other planns in the works are, a fishing gig, and a noose for capturing reptiles and dangerous critters.
I am making up a list of toys for it , some practicle some purely for fun .
I have read and watched a number of articles on spear hunting and that was the primary reason for building it to begin with ,pluss I like walking with a staff any way for probing the ground ahead .
In search and rescue it always paid off . Spoiled I guess .
It is a worth while skill learning to make your own blades and understanding the strength of materials .
There are several here on the board that make their own blades as well .

The whole Esee line look amazing. And not overly expensive if bought from the right online source. I never really got a feel for how big these knives are until I saw the esee 6 pictures on their website. Huuuuge.

Masters Of Defense MK V ATAC

I've had two. Lost one in Iraq when the sheath came apart. They sent me another. That's standing behind your equipment! Mine is beat up more than this internet photo, but I love it. The handle is the most comfortable thing I've ever had in my hand. (besides a 36C)

Default Busse - NOE 6"

A bit pricey but INFI steel is the best and the 6" blade is neither too large or too small for hard work. With .25" thickness and a great handle shape this is by far the best knife of the many blades I own!

I've got a Becker BK-7. It's just badass.
I've got a Becker BK-2. Totally indestructible.
I've got a Becker BK-11. Its awesome for skinning and has a beer opener on one end.

I've got a BHK Woodsman Pro. Probably the most versatile knife I own.
I've got a BHK Bushcrafter. This knife is everything you would really need in a
knife.
I've got a BHK Woodcrafter. More refined than the Bushcrafter and my EDC knife.

I could keep going but I've given you enough examples. LOL
