    This old Black Jack AWACS is as much a fighter as what you mention. I don't see any reason for serrations on a fighting knife as they came about for cutting rope more so.

    I take a tomahawk to a knife fight in a heart beat too.
    I like that. I need to look for more Blackjack knives...

    It hurts just as bad to get stabbed or cut by a bushcraft knife as it does a combat one! :eek:
    Grab a buck by the antlers and decide if you'd rather a bushcraft knife or a fighting knife... Having actually done this several times. Bushcraft knives can kill things, but I promise you a pure fighting knife is much more efficient and effective.

    I had this in my cart on ebay for awhile and the seller offered around $14 off the already discounted price. Ended up being $132.25 + tax. Couldnt say no. Ebay has been the place for me to get TOPS knives with a good discount. I got my Tex Creek 69 off there for $120 a few weeks back

    Out here by the lake!
    I had never even heard of one (Kukri) until I was in my late 50s, but I swear it’s an excellent shape for utility knife/machete. It’s what I would want if I was in the bush and only had one blade.
    Neighborhood friend of mine dad fought in WWII. Their basement had a pool table & was fixed up in a military theme. He had 2 Kukri sets on display. He told of the Ghurka's going out at night & collecting heads. He said American troops would find chalk X's on the helmets in the mornings a sign the a Ghurka coold have took their head at night while on guard duty.

    I think most kids in the neighborhood had a kukri knife they got at the army surplus store.
