what type of point?...clip, sheep's foot, tanto etc.? If you don't know....what will you be using it for?

 

Keep in mind that the higher quality knives that "keep an edge" usually have stainless blades. So, once they lose that edge, it is quite difficult to put back on.

 

To me though, it sounds like you're describing a Buck of some sort.

Knowing what you'll be using it for would be a help. Why a fixed blade? Any blade length requirements? Serrated/plain/combo edge? An everyday carry knife? Hiking/camping? For work and if so what do you do?

I can offer loads of suggestions. But my general answer to people who are looking for a good cheap knife is to look at Spyderco and CRKT. Both offer some great affordable blades. Well made and stand up to abuse well. I usually carry three at work for various chores, so I've put a couple of hundred different knives through their paces:)

This one has been killing muther{censored}ers for over 50 years.


 

A good disposable knife. They are prone to snapping where the blade meets the hilt, especially if they ever see any rust (I've killed two). Great beater knives, but you'd be better off with a full tang knife IMHO.

Too many moving parts for an outdoor knife, IMHO.

Get yourself one of these:

I've had one for over 10 years. Sent it on deployment with friends a few times, been used, abused and put away wet. Still holds up.

Cold Steel stuff in general is pretty bullet proof. Their fixed blades are high among THE toughest factory made blades you'll ever get.

Why? You plan on taking them places you shouldn't?

If I did, do you really think I'd be posting about it on the internet?

 

No, just a general curiosity about things that are different.
