I have the Pup and it's the one I would choose. The K-Bar is bigger and a bit heavier than the Pup which is easier to conceal. Also I find the steel on the SOG Knives to stay sharp and hold their edge well.

I have the exact k-bar your talking about. It's my most trusted knife, if I had to pick just one to live with for the rest if my life, it's the one I'd pick.

Mine is sharp, and it stays sharp. I'm not big on how well a knife stays sharp, as I do my own sharpening and am good at it. As long as it doesn't go dull while I thumb it, I'm happy. That said, I've only sharpened mine once. I had one years ago and sold it. I discovered about 6 months ago that my neighbor coincidentally had one, so I traded my cold steel kukri for it, and sharpened it as soon as I got it, and it hasn't been touched up at all since then.

I use it. I've chopped brush with it, I've cut hoses, wires, and all kind if random junk with it. I've chipped weld beads off of sloppy welds with it, nary a knick to be seen on the edge.

I have no experience with SOG, but they get good reviews.

I have the classic USMC Ka-bar that I carried while on active duty. It is a good knife and is tough as nails...tougher actually. I also have a Cold Steel SRK, I actually like it more than my Ka-bar. Talk about a tough knife with a good thick blade and a grip that doesn't get slick when wet. I've used that knife for everything from cutting brush and small limbs to build fires; cleaning deer, fish, and other game, cutting rope, and even opening up cans while camping...I don't think there's anything that I can't use this knife for.

Wow that sounds like a good knife. Where did you get the Cold Steel SRK?

I bought mine new from a store on Ebay. There are several online stores that carry them. I know Bass Pro has it but you can probably find it a little cheaper somewhere else.
