Treat a knife just like a firearm in that any knife that fits well in your hand and you are comfortable using is a good one. Don't just go looking for the tactical/defensive/end all knife and get something that YOU like. I carry a Kershaw everyday.
Quick into action and strong blade.Slice and dice or remove limbs it is in want. I like my USMC K bar,I carry a kershaw assisted opener.It will break on really rough treatment. All in what you plan to use it for. Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.Bamn box openers killed 3000 at WTS.
