    What is your favorite all around field knife?

    So far the best overall package I've found for carry and handling chores is a Rat3D2. I am very much into cutlery right now though and would like to add a few more excellent field knives to my collection. I also have a KaBar which served me well for years. I am thinking of getting one of the short KaBars too.

    Fixed blade goes to the K-bar for me. I've had the same one for 23 years.

    Folder would be any Ken Onion Kershaw assisted open. Great knives, great price, OUTSTANDING customer service.

    I also have a Case Western boot knife I've had longer than the K-Bar. It sharpens nice, is durable, and looks pretty. Overall, a good last ditch, "stick it in his neck as he's choking me out" dagger.

    I have used the U.S.A.F. pilots survival knife for a long time (20+years)
    Tough as nails.
    Used it once to cut the top of a heavy duty steel trash can so the
    pump of a tapper could stick through. Touched it up with a steel,and it was still serviceable for the rest of the trip.

    That right there is all that needs to be said! Able to facilitate use of a keg and soldier on!

    (I have one of those I was issued a long time ago. It's in the trunk)

    Yep. I love how they send you replacement parts for free.

    No kidding. I broke the tip off one of mine doing something that was very similar to prying (not priying, the warranty expressly forbids that, I would never do that), sent it back two years after I bought it, got a new one in the mail less than a week later

    I got a Leek last July and managed to wear out the spring in a month (I worked at a scout camp teaching something that required frequent knife use). I decided to get some new screws too and they sent them quickly.

    The only problem I have with the Leek is that it's too lightweight. The blade is too thin and flimsy. I do like how it sharpens to a really sharp edge easily.

    For a "utility" knife I like the RAT 7 but for throat slitting, gutting and skinning it's hard to beat my Bark River "Teddy" ...
