I'll post one I do not recommend... I finally tried a KABAR (non-Becker)





Impressive on paper and in pics... not a fan of the black coat (paint) they use and the steel is really thin. On a knife without a full tang it makes it feel fragile IMHO. maybe I am used to SYKCO, BUSSE, SWAMP RAT... but this knife doesn't feel rugged. I wanted a stacked leather handle, etc... but this one is being returned. For $90 it seems like a deal, but in person a 9"+ blade should be thicker especially with a rat tail tang. Doesn't seem like the KABAR name should be on it, but maybe the KABAR name isn't what I thought. That $60 Cold Steel is a HELL of a lot more knife.
