Shadow and Kevin great info! Thanks for all the good advice and knowledge.
Leo - i think the kabar sums up nicely what I am looking for. A knife i can use on and around the farm and campsite but would benefit me well in a SHTF moment for basic self defense and survival. I do like Kevins example for discrete EDC his is very similar to the blackhawk i have linked to above.
I have always wanted an XSF-1 knife that is the perfect tactical/utility know sadly i cant find one for sale anymore.
Let me know if you have any other helpful tips or products.
