    Want to get a good general purpose knife for my bug out vest. I am leaning towards a Ka-bar short classic. Due to state law blade cannot be longer than 5.5 inches. I like the leather grip and classic look. The reviews are good, so what do you all think?

    I've enjoyed the Ka-Bars I've owned over the last five decades. They are my go to knives for every outdoor camping, hunting, and fishing event.

    And, the 7 inch model is almost as good a thrower as my Mauser bayonet was.

    They're generally pretty good. The quality is there and if the style appeals to you, then that's bonus points.

    You may have to do a little sharpening. IMS, the "working edge" they come with is more of a Camp Knife edge. You probably wont' be skinning any squirrels with it.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Sharpening is no problem. Can do that on a lazy afternoon.
