    Fixed blade tactical knife

    Anyone got a fixed blade tactical knife they're a big fan of? I'm looking to pick one up in the near future. I'm a bit of a benchmade nut, so the Nimravus is already on the list. Fandom is starting to feel a little like tunnel-vision lately, though and I'm curious if there's something awesome out there I haven't seen yet.

    I'd like to avoid tanto points and serrations, although I'm not opposed to partial serrations. Ideally I'd spend less than $100, but I could a little over for great tool.

    What's your primary purpose for this knife? Self Defense tool, or all around Knife use?

    i've heard nothing but good things about the Ka-Bar TDI for self defense (that Kage happens to have in his Sig)

    not sure how usefull it'd be as an all around carry knife.

    I carry a CRKT M16 folder on a regular basis and i don't think i've ever wished i had a fixed blade instead.

    I've got a couple BM folders for EDC (707 and 12205), so I'm looking for something a little more heavy-duty for adventuring (camping, zombie apocolypse, etc.). It'll see hard use, but I'd like to be able to pull it if **** Hits the Fan.

    The Kbar TDI are great as well. That is my self defense blade. I have the traditional one in my sig, however, Kabar just came out with a large verson.

    I have the CRKT Hissatsu as well. Its holds a razor sharp edge nicely and if tough as ****.

    However, if your not a fan of CRKT, stick with Kabar.

    On the subject on blades in my Sig, The last on is a Kabar Hawkbill folder. That a tought little folder, but you said you were looking for a fixed blade.

    Kabars make good tough knives.

    depends on the state. You live in California so probably yeah.

    Edit:
    Also it depend on size of the blade.

    There are states like Virginia, that as long as it open you can carry basically anything.

    ****, I can buy full-auto openers here in Oregon. (No concealed carry, though.)

    Open carry on fixed blades is fine, AFAIK, which is how I'd wear it camping/etc.
