When deciding on a fixed blade I was also deciding on a 'chopper' and a trap maker.....I wanted to spend less than $300....my choices:
Cold Steel Kukri as chopper $70
RAT-7 as all around bushknife $70
SAK Rucksack as trap maker $27
Leatherman Surge for improvisation $70
So for all around $240

I cant imagine spending 300 on one knife to loose,break,or have stolen....but thats just me.

I've got Ritter's folder but for EDC I carry a Gerber, have several of those and wouldnt cry if i lost one, would def. hate it to loose the Ritter.
