Combat Knives what to choose?
I want to buy a decent knife that wont break and is full tang, i heard Ek knives are good what are your opinions on the subject?
Something with a blunted tip. So it don't get stuck in a bone - instead it slides between the ribs...
I know I will sound like a typical Marine here, but you will probably get the most bang for your buck with anything made by Ka-Bar. I have one with a tanto-style blade which is my go-to for a straight bladed knife. Good quality and it won't break the bank.
I am partial to my Emerson karambit as well, but that probably isn't what you have in mind.
I'll second mrm, but I'm probably a typical Marine as well.
Gerber is a brand I personally trust, never ever have had a problem with the quality of the knife. Time tested and battle proven.
But if you were hardcore you'd kill motherfuckers with this :

As I was saying, The first link I sent is what I use, my state allows no more then a 4inch blade, and it can't be concealed. I prefer a folding blade for general use, and self defense.
But with my personal opinions aside I feel this is also a pretty good knife, which I've used quite a bit.
I can also recommend this one from personal use. It seems to be what you're looking for as well.
Now if you'll notice i'm not sending links to knives that are 200$ or anything like that, I feel you should never spend over 125$ US on a knife. There's nothing like losing a 200$ knife and being fucked out of your hard earned buck.
Try one of these - the new autolawk makes it a virtual fixed blade when open.
I carry the M16, M16 "Big Dawg" and M16-14LE....in addition to the seven others I have on my person.
My personla favourite os the M16-14LE
What's your budget?
For about 30 bucks, one of the Glock knives are going to be pretty darn durable. They don't hold an edge as well as Gerbers do, but for this low of a price, they're excellent beaters.
I liked the old school E-tools better. You could get a nice edge on the blade, enough to use it as a hatchet. It took a lot of WD40 to keep them from rusting, though.
