    Thinking of buying a new knife? Don't want to spend a ton of money? Here's some worthwhile knives for decent prices.

    Mora. Made in Sweden, and available in carbon, stainless, or laminated steel. The classic outdoors knife, and many models can be had for under $25.00. IMO for the price it's the best deal around.

    Becker (Ka-Bar) Bk2. 5.5" 1095 blade. Good, sturdy, hard use knife. About $70.00. For those who want a larger blade, check out the BK7 with a 7" blade. The Becker handles always feel a little large to me, but for the price still a good deal.

    RAT (Randel Adventure Training) made by Ontario. Show is the RAT 05 with a 5" 1095 steel blade. About $75.00. They make 'em larger and smaller. Also made some decent folding knives for under $40.00

    (Not to be confused with Swamp Rat Knives)

    Also I you don't mind possum I want to throw one in here. I have been turned on to Glock knives. For around thirty bucks you can get a fixed blade 81 or 78 Glock. Just YouTube search Glock knife destruction test and watch knife reviews video

    So far the best two knives I've bought have been an AKM bayonet and a cheap $15 knife from tractor supply deal bin for skinning it has no marks on it to tell who made it doesn't even say what type of steel it is. But the tang on it is 1/4" thick and makes a good camping knife and take cares of most skinning and wood work needed.

    I don't fork out big money for knives the max for me is about $50 anything over that I'll either pass up or just make my own. Some of the nicer pocket knives I've gotten for light work have been smith & wesson folders when I got them they were sharp enough to shave with but I hate the sqaure tech look they had.

    Might try the Condor knives I like the simple basic look.

    I second the smith&wesson folders. I bought one of their spring assisted knives that has the glass breaker on the butt of it and a safety switch. Pretty sweet knife and really sharp out of the box. Mine is pretty dull now and doesn't sharpen up very well, or my sharpener sucks. I Made the mistake of buying it from cabellas for $60 and then looked on eBay and it was going for $30 with free shipping.

    Looks like the cousin of this Scandinavian Classic Fillet knife. $14-20 depending on blade size.

    I've been a fan of Mora knives since the mid-80's.
    I have one of these in my AEDC (Almost Every Day Carry) bag:

    http://www.amazon.com/Mora-Knife-Co...=UTF8&colid=IOH64PHLDRJ1&coliid=IW9FRWD4JECND



    My #2 would be my Cold Steel SRK Kraton or my Ontario M6 Pilot Survival Knife.
    I love the feel of the SRK, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the M6.

    Another option to look at is the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate or the Gerber Prodigy.
    I have the Ultimate in my Bug Out Bag and the Prodigy on my Battle Belt.

    I also picked up a Cold Steel GI Tanto. Solid blade, but a little too big for anything but big chopping jobs, IMHO.

    All were under $100 new.
