Default Survival Knife Suggestions?

Recommendations for a solid survival knife? Preferably fixed blade, non-serrated. There seem to be a number of tacticool "survival" knives, but I was hoping to find something legit. Thanks!

Imho any knife that is made well and from high carbon steel. With a full tang. Is good.

Well, depending on what exactly you consider a "survival" knife, and what your other requirements are (length, shealth, ect)....

Aww hell, it really depends on what you like. Ka-Bars are great, but I wouldn't call them "survival" knives (as a combat knife or a fighting knife, unmatched).

There are a multitude of websites you can go on to get survival knives. Just look and find the one that you like.

That knife means business, nice. Did it start it's life as a high carbon steel rail road spike?
