#1 item for your bug out bag

The Ka-Bar USMC fighting knife is bad to the bone. It's under $50 at Amazon. Almost 400 reviews on Amazon and almost all are 5 stars...I love mine.

If you want to check it out and support the Daily Paul at the same time, click this link...

'KA-BAR Full Size US Marine Corp Fighting Knife, Straight'

KA-BAR, SOG, Gerber or Kershaw

are all great brands. Very High Quality. Gerber Multitool in my opinion is a must have along with a High Quality knife.

Tricking out your cool Rambo hunting knife

I mentioned below about choice of sheath (Not nylon, go with very heavy leather with risered construction or metal) but now it's time to trick it out.

In theory the first thing you want to do is wrap your sheath with about 20 feet of paracord. Very handy stuff. And now that you got that, you realize you can wrap lots of stuff inside the paracord. Like a little wetstone maybe for sharpening but you really want your fire starter and some fishhooks. Fish are all over the place but making a decent fishhook in the field is pretty challenging, especially if you can't find scrap metal.

From there you can make a shelter, make fire, make many kinds of weapons, spears, a bow and arrows, you can make traps and snares, in other words you have your mini survival kit. Hopefully with you at ALL TIMES. Although I really can't see most folks wearing one with a suit.

A blade is the #1 basic survival tool.

Your blade can be used to make almost anything you need.

Some of these low prices look good but BEWARE IMITATIONS with lower quality steel and without the full length tang.

A great price competitor is the Buck 119. Very high quality, also available at Amazon. The 119 is long enough to be a very lethal weapon but short enough to wear comfortably.

Myself I carry the Buck 120 which sadly isn't in production at this time. She's a beauty. With a blade that long you have to thigh-tie it.

NEVER WEAR A NYLON SHEATHED LONG KNIFE, when you squat down it can slice right through the nylon, plunge into the back of your knee severing your femoral artery and you are bleeding out fast. That's a real scenario, it happens.

Wow

seems very durable. I would expect it to break after some of those uses.

I think another great knife

I think another great knife for the money is the M-tech USA full tang stainless steel survival knife.A full tang knife means it's all one piece and cannot break off at the handle making it very versatile.This knife is only 18 bucks and change.

Is there anywhere else to look at it.

I stopped shopping at Amazon and closed my account when I found out that a portion of money I spend there goes to further the homosexual agenda and gay marriage.

Is there somewhere else I can look at the knife?

Amazon

I am a libertarian , thusly I don't care about homosexuality or Gay marrige, each to his or her own

Tasers are Torture, Deism.com

I didn't necessarily

I didn't necessarily interpret the statement as anti-homosexual as much as anti-radical homosexual agenda. I am not offended if someone chooses the homosexual lifestyle either. As you said, to each his own. But, I also refuse to support the radical homosexual agenda, as well as other radicals and the corporations that contribute to them, not particularly for the causes they support, but for the unnecessarily intrusive methods employed in forcing their agenda upon others who may simply wish to remain neutral. As far as marriage is concerned, people should be able to marry whomever they choose without government permission, incentive, or interference.

Typical hypocrite

To each his own unless they disagree with you. At least I'm honest.

how is that hypocritical?

Simply having a different opinion then yours doesn't make one a hypocrite.

You put it out there....you thought you weren't going to see a difference of opinion on a Libertarian forum?.....c'mon now

i am a libertarian

thus, i don't care what personal opinions might motivate one to use or not use the services of a particular business.

I doubt you'll find it lower than Amazon though.

Cheaperthandirt is one of my favorite places to buy cheap ammo...they have the Ka-Bar about $5 more than Amazon.

I don't mind paying a little more for principle sake. I found them on Ebay too with a quick search.

I seriously love mine. I

I seriously love mine. I bought extras for family and friends as gifts.

This knife will shave hair off your arm straight out of the box. You touch the blade and it feels like it has drawn blood. It's a 'family heirloom' piece...quality is there.
