calling them "fighters" is the stupid part. i have a few knives i rotate on hunting trips. i couldnt fight my way out of a paper bag without copious supply of blood clotters and bandages.
fun thread by the way.
but there are some fantastic custom knives out there. i bought my brother a decent "tactical" knife because he is on a SWAT team. he uses the knife to cut thru screen doors..and he tried to pry a stuck smoke bomb thing out of the chamber and snapped off the tip..then he lost it. haha..now he carries a regular folding knife and it does the exact same thing.
i love what the ESEE guys says. i want the ESEE 4 to gut deer and stuff with. nice tool.
