Hay 240,

Take a look at Cold Steel's web site. They have a great selection and I've never been disappointed in one of their products.

Also, look for a British commando stiletto. They are simple, straight and slim.

Shibby!!! Thanks lrgcal4fun! I collect knives (as well as guns)...so I have a wide varity...I love my throwing knives and my AKC Itialian Switch Blad (rose wood handel...very nice). Plus many camando knives, resue, and everything inbetween.



I have been looking for a good straight (drop) point knife for a while now. The closest knife I found was a Kershaw knife similar to the one you described.



Anyhow, enough rambling...sorry. Thanks again dude!

I'm sorry 240 I miss understood what you were looking for. The knife I described is a double edged fighting knife the was used by the British military. Like the USMC K-Bar, there are a lot of manufactures that produce them. Unlike the K-Bar, it's a very sleek design.



Check out the wiki-article

Most of the drop points I know about have a slight curve to the blade. But, I'll keep my eyes open.

lrgcal4fun,



Check this out...it's a Kershaw (SHIBBY), and it is almost exactly what I've been looking for. Take a gander and let me know what you think!

That Kershaw "military knife" looks great. I like it better than the "spike" I'm using now. You can see them at

http://www.coldsteel.com/spike.html

I have the Bowie. A good knife but I like the scale handle of the Kersahw better.



Although I have lots of folders, when the *_)&^&%^ hits the fan, I want the strength of a small fixed blade.

Yeah, I'm going with that Kershaw. I already have several, particularally Ken Onions',but that is one bitch'n knife. It isn't that much either. Can't go wrong with Kershaw.



Perhaps you can help me find a USMC comando knife (not a shitty immitation). Excuse my lanuage...I'd much appreciate it.

There';s alot of companies that make knives for your application.



Kershaw';s been mentioned already but I cant say enough good about them. I carry a Kershaw every day.



SOG makes some good knives also that fit your needs...
