Buck Summit
Backpackers, campers, and climbers enjoy knives that can be opened single-handed, and Buck’s Summit fits the bill, featuring a thermoplastic sub-handle with anodized aluminum overlays. The 2-1/2” liner-locking blade is both serrated and straight, and the Summit includes a variety of camper-friendly tools.
Street Pricing: $50

Buck X-Tract
Buck’s X-Tract multi-function tool offers one-hand access to everything, but unlike typical multi-tools, it features a serious blade.  Its traditional black nylon handle offers good leverage and durability, making this a great choice for those who are active outdoors.

    I’m liking the Buck Summit but can’t justify it since i just recently got a Leatherman Fuse and also carry a lockback blade at work.

    I can’t beat any of the leatherman knives and multipliers I have. They really stand behind their 25 year warranty!

    Kind of Buck-heavy (or low priced) list. The Spyderco Caly 3 is one of the newer hotter knives from Spyderco. Sort of a sub-3″ version of the Spyderco Manix. Then in bigger knives, Swamp Rat Knife Works and Scrap Yard Knife Company are cheaper lines under the Busse company umbrella. Both have amazingly tough 6″ fixed blade knives out now.

    No Gerber? Their Applegate-Fairbairn combat folder and the model 600 multi-tool with bit set are current U.S. Army issue. Seems like a pretty good endorsement to me.

    I’d recommend the CRKT M16, or some variant of it to anyone looking for a good folder. any of the benchmades with the axis lock system or the Sogs with the similar system are even better, but cost more. The knife I carry on a daily basis is a Benchmade Osborn axis. besides CRKT, Benchmade, and sog, I also recommend Gerber, Spiderco, Kershaw, Beretta, Kabar, Cold Steel, Buck, Case, and Camillus, all of which make great knives in the $30 to $100 range.

    Above that, you might want to look at Strider, Surefire, Busse, Microtec, Benchmade premium line, Al Mar, Blackwater, Emerson, Mod, and TOPS. All of these companys produce knives in the $150- $400 bracket.

    also, these lists should include a lot of smaller and more usefull fixed blades than the big comic book looking bowies. Check out Blackhawk or Strider knives, and you will see what a fixed blade should be.

    I’m a dealer based in South Africa, our jungle-hunters and fieldman only opt for the best knives when it comes to strength power and most importantly usibility, from personal experience i’ll highly recommend The HK SERIES OF BENCHMADE knives, theze knives are solid-tough and can be put to test through the toughest of ability, you won’t be disappointed..
