The blades I have bet my life on and a couple were used as designed.

The 1st photo is the fixed blades I have carried on deployments: top is a Randel issued in the 70s, 2nd down a cold steer Larado Bowie I carried in Iraq, Jorden, Cyprus, a few countries in Africa, and Afghanistan. 3rd down is a custom Bowie I had made by a WV knife maker, and bottom a Cris Reeves survival knife that was a prize at a pistol match.

The cold steel kukri was issued along with the tomahawk the Commander had made for everyone on the team before deployment.

The 2nd from bottom photo is the 2nd SOG Pentagon (lost the 1st one diving in the Gulf of Aden while working) and shoulder sheath I carried on deployments.

Bottom photo the two Benchmades I carried in Afghanistan (pointed left), the lever switch Tree Brand I got in Germany in 75, and the Microtech a friend gave me after a job we did together.

My favorite knife that I own.
Its a Blackjack model #5...
5 1/2 carbon steel blade , stacked leather handle , brass guard...made in the USA
I carried this knife while I was in the Army and on four Combat deployments...
It still gets used today as a camping , hunting and kitchen knife.
