On the everyday use and self defense note, I always carry my nice little Gerber folder. It has a wide strong blade about 3.5" in length with dual thumb tabs (thumb tabs the right term?) with a strong point, and a handle that fits my hand nice and has good grip. I use it every day, and fortunately, I haven't had to use it in self defense yet. Here's a pic

Another knife I really like is my Leatherman Wave multitool. This is the ultimate multitool.

But, I have to say my favorite knife is my Buck Kalinga Pro. Beautiful lines with a comfortable grip and a devastating blade whether skinning or in self defense equal hotness for me. Posted Image

If we're talking medieval I personally like the Bastard Swords. Quite a bit faster and lighter than a Claymore, Greatsword, or other full sized 2-handed piece, but longer blade and handle than a long sword. Very flexible in its application.

My favorite sword would have to be the hand-and-a-half or bastard sword simply because of it's versatility. Power and grace in a simple and strong blade is for me.

There's only one actual sword in the world I want, and it would be a genuine old-school hand-forged made-in-Japan Katana. Those things are gorgeous! And way to pricey for me to ever afford one... :(

Working on getting a couple fixed blade knives. Probably going to splurge on something from Strider.:D Or just a straight old- school KaBar. Although KaBars' Becker line looks pretty good for a budget blade...

Speaking of which, my brother and I actually dug an old K-bar out of the ground a few years ago in a junk pile we found. Has "Olean NY" on one side and "USMC" on the other. Still seems to be in good condition too.

There is no problem that cannot be solved with the proper application of explosives and duct tape.
How's that for a contradiction?

I think I'd prefer a Tachi over a normal katana, but I am a big guy, so the normal katana would be a bit short for me. A Tachi is a bit longer in the blade, with a bit more handle, so it will give me more reach and still be easy to handle.

Can't remember if I said that already. Agreed that Japanese blades are Doorbells.

So, I'd like to get a new knife sometime soon. A good quality one. I have a cheap "responder" knife. It has the glass break point on the bottom of the handle, a seatbelt cutter toward the end, and has a spring-assisted opening. But it's cheap. I'd like one like this, but of better quality.. I'd prefer not to spend 500 bucks on a knife... Does anyone know of any knives that meet this criteria? If so please let me know. Thanks :)

Price range? Blade style? Metal preferences? Length preferences? Intended usage? There are a lot of factors to consider.

Spyderco makes some really good, inexpensive knives, Cold Steel and SOG knives are a bit better, and a bit pricier. For some pretty top-of-the-like gear, Benchmade is the company to beat. They are usually over a C-Note though, sometimes well over.

Eh, obviously the cheaper the better, but I wan't at least *some* quality. Right now I don't see a reason to spend 300 bucks on a knife.. I'm thinking anywhere from 0-100ish. I know that may be kind of low to some people.

My main requirement is assisted opening. The one I have now is spring assisted and I've been spoiled ever since. I have to have it.

The blade type doesn't really matter. I'm usually a fan of serration or at least half serration but I wouldn't object to a... I can't think of what the proper term is.. but the flat non-serrated blades.

length preference.. I dunno... Not a tiny knife.. Just a regular size... I'd have to see what mine is. Intended use is just for general needs.. Have a knife on me all the time to cut things, and as a possible means of self-defense (to coincide with my glock 23 I always carry)

also the other highly ideal features would be the glass break tip and the seat belt cutter. I just really like that stuff. My current knife has it, but it's just a cheap knife. After like 7 months, the spring to the spring assist has pretty much lost its life and the blade wiggles side to side a little.

Edit: Something like this

This would probably be a good fit- if you can still find one...
http://www.skdtac.co...e_p/zto.117.htm
A little above the $$ you're looking to spend, and no seat belt cutter, but they seem to be good quality knives. You could check out the other Zero Tolerance folders on the site as well, although I don't think the other ones have any "safety tool" options...
Off the top of my head that's all I can think up right now. :(

Maybe it's just me, but it seems that most of the higher end blades either do one task or the other-i.e., no combo blade/tool stuff like you'd want.

Heh, when you were talking about the glass breaking tip and all, I seriously thought of the S&W Rescue knife.

Try this.

http://www.espyderco...om/assist-black

Spyderco, Assisted Opening rescue knife. Carbide breaker and emergency whistle in the handle. The broad, deeply (3/4) serrated blade is excellent for sawing through seatbelt or something, and the end of the blade is a straight edge for more delicate cutting work.

Only thing that bothers me is the snub nose point. I like a point on a knife.

And I really don't look at knives as ideal SD tools. I carry one everyday, but it get used for practical tasks, namely opening cases, bags, and the like. Unless I get the opportunity to pull it out in advance, I won't be getting to my knife in a scuffle.

Yeah, I want a point on the end... I'll have to look tonight when Im at work.. Maybe I will just have to deal without the seatbelt cutter and glass break.. though I would really like what I have now, just sturdier. Blah.

So, here are some of the knives I have found just on Amazon that seem to be what I am looking for:

Smith & Wesson SWMP5LS M&P Linerlock Knife with 2nd Generation MAGIC Assisted Open and 40% Serrated Drop Point Blade

Smith & Wesson SWMP4LS M&P Linerlock Knife with 2nd Generation MAGIC Assisted Open and 40% Serrated Drop Point Blade - ^^^^^^^^^^ Not duplicate links. Slightly different knives.

SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TF-1 Trident, Black TiNi

SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TF-7 Trident Tanto, Black TiNi

Schrade SCHA2BS Nitro Linerlock Knife with Aluminum Handle and Teflon Coated Partially Serrated Tanto Blade, Black

First, what's the benefit of having a tanto vs the somewhat curved blade? Is there a real benefit or is it all just looks? I personally like the look of a tanto blade for the most part.

I was really leaning toward the SOG after watching some video reviews.. But then, I realized it has no flip switch finger trigger thing on the back if you don't wanna use the thumb stud. I love the finger triggers on the back after having one. Also, from the reviews I read, the seatbelt cutter doesn't work that great.. But I still find myself drawn to the SOG... for the looks I guess? It just looks like a knife you don't want to mess with. But it also doesn't have the glass break like I want. But it has a low profile clip.

Then the Smith and Wesson's both have the glass breakers, but no seatbelt cutter, but have the finger trigger.

Then the Schrade has a combo of the glass break, finger trigger, tanto blade... But no seatbelt cutter... And I am also not familiar with Schrade so i am not sure of their quality..

So it doesn't look like I'm going to really get what I want, ideally. Not for the price, anyway. So, out of these, which do you think would be best?

Drop, clip, and other rounded points are better for slicing and the like. The tanto's flat, angular planes make it very tough and durable, and concentrate any force applied towards the point. It is better for piercing things. In a pinch, a good one would probably be fine as in improvised glass breaker.

Also, SOG makes some damn good knives. I'm pretty sure you could open one with just a flick of the wrist. It might a take a little practice, but I hate to see one passed over because of that. They are damn good knives.

I'd pass on Schrade. I've personally wrecked a few on pretty light duty. They cram in more crap in an attempt to cover for shoddy construction.

Yeah... I can overlook the glass break and seatbelt cutter.. but the lack of finger trigger on the SOG is kind of buggin' me.. Blah... I don't know.. I kind of want to try the Tanto SOG...
