Just thinking aloud: are there any legitimate home or shop uses for a fixed-blade knife? Knives like these are great for camping and other outdoor activities, but what else can they be used for?
The Gerber LMF II, such as the one pictured above, has been on my wishlist for about two years now. The only thing holding me back is the lack of a solid reason as to why I need one.
I wonder how many utility and survival knife purchases are motivated by primal urges and desires, as opposed to genuine need.
