    I've probably used my BK14 more than any other fixed blade I own, but I'm hoping on putting my ESEE 4 and Izula through the wringer over the next few years... see if I can beat the snot out of them enough that they either break or make me an ESEE guy for life.

    My beater knife right now is an Ontario 498. It's kinda homely but it works well. My shameful (as yet) safe queen is an Ontario SP10... got it and haven't had a chance to use it yet.

    My most used is a Newt Livesay NRGS-EX, closely followed by a Battle Horse Knives PLSK1 and an RMJ Tactical Kukri.

    These are all made by John Keidaisch of JK Knives. Pattern #2 is called the Bluegill. #1 and #6 don't have an official name and may have been one-offs, but John keeps all the patterns on file for repeat orders. He'll know the knife from the photo.

    Well, presumably you are asking about outdoor knives, and not kitchen knives. However, in the kitchen I'd have to say it's a toss up between my Henckels, Wusthof's and Forschners.

    In the field it would probably be my trusty old Buck 102, quickly followed by a Mora. I'm thinking seriously about adding an ESEE-4 to that line up though. Have lots of fixed blades (I just love fixed blades for some reason), but the 102 and Mora are my go-to knives.

    Nice knife. Although I would not choose a tanto style blade for outdoor activities. Who made it if I may ask?

    Cheers

    The most common fixed blades I use are CRKT Minimalist Bowie, Tanto and Wharncliffe. I have larger fixed blade knives, but they do not get carried as much.

    I have the larger Chefyougo and I use it when I happen to be AT/IN the office AND I have my meals there. Theres is something about the wide blade that makes it more visual-friendly. It looks more like a kitchen knife. There is that ubiquitous 8-9 inch POS kitchen knife with the straight edge AND the 6-inch serrated Santoku variety that no one even gives a 2nd thought about how large they happen to be and how much damage they could impart to someone.

    On several occasions I used my CRK Small Sebbie to cut my BBQ chicken meal. Several people balked about the presence of a folding knife. Yes, I stated BALKED and these were colleagues that carry firearms!!

    Hmmm. Tough question to answer. For a long time, my fixed blade that saw the most use was my Mora Companion HD.

    Now, I use several as often as the Mora, if not more often. It rotates every month or so depending on my mood.

    Thanks. It's an older ENTREK Survivor. I am not sure they make this model anymore, but it has served me well for around 20 years. The original finish is gone and it has had its edge re-profiled a couple of times. Truth be told, a tanto with a belly is a useful blade shape. Mr. Ennis also blended the tip grind in with the belly to make it much easier to maintain over many American Tanto blades. The tip strength is superior to my other knives in the size range. The biggest drawback I initially thought was the blade steel (440C), which turns out to be great...the real issue is the handle length (too short). It doesn't go to the field with me anymore, but I still use it around the house.
