Yea, I'm starting to see more reviews on the lockback(thumb open correct?) being really nice. I keep going back to the KA-BAR Mule right now link reason being the handle looks like a nice fit, of course KA-BAR has a solid rep and one guy even mentioned he returned a knife a year after he bought it, and they sent him a new one free. (Lock Pin snapped)
The grip is important to me since my hands sweat and get hot fast pending temp and the aluminum ones may be textured or patterned, but the one I have now I can feel the slip. So if I am out in the woods I'd like to know I got a solid grip.

That's the one! I posted another pic in a different thread a while back.

To OP, the whole reason I keep the ka-bar in my truck (other than the obvious utility purposes) is because I'm in school also, and in MS it's illegal to carry a gun on educational property, except in one very constrained circumstance.

Tip: if you end up in a knife fight, expect to get cut.

I have two of the mules. Lock up VERY solid. If you are worried about the grip, they are polymer with rubber inserts, but I haven't had any problems hangin' on to it. You should prob handle one first tho...I could see where it might get slick if your hands were wet with certain liquids.

I suppose if one found himself in a "knife fight", he could do well worse than a KaBar fighter, that's for sure.

It gets my vote as best all around knife...

These folders being recommended are very nice and would serve the OP well. Unfortunately, a big fixed blade just isn't feasible in all everyday situations.

If it were, there might would be no such thing as folders, I know mine would never leave my belt if that were the case.

Best edc knife for the money IMO is the Kershaw Blur. Its an assisted opener, stays sharp, feels solid, comfortable in the hand and pocket, and can get it for about 40 bucks if you shop online.
