Fixed blade knife recommendation,

Recommended Posts

£50, max.

Not  looking to live in the woods for a week or carve out a canoe and escape.

Just something reliable in the field and garden. Wooden handle preferred. 

Thanks very much.

I have always been very happy with my Winchester. Inexpensive, heavyish and seems to take a good edge. Half what you want to spend.

Mora is good, but if you want a wooden handle i'd look at the Boker magnum at about £25, excellent knives for the money i have one and bought 2 friends one for bdays and all going well, leather sheath too which is hangs onto the knife better than my moras, good knife for the extra £10 or so

I agree. The bokers a great knife I've had one for over a year now and it holds a very sharp edge

I would say the Boker as well. 

I have a couple of Moras and while they deliver excellent bang for buck I do prefer the Boker.

Were they sub £50? Because they look like they are worth £100+ easily. Stunning

They usually are but for folk on here I do them a bit more wallet friendly.

I think I might have to ha e one of those off you fatchap! When I finally get back to work and get some money again that is. Selling my body on street corners doesn't seem to be working, doesn't help finding corners to stand on when you live on a straight country lane 😂

Opinel Carbone. Great knives, get em on evil bay for about 10-15 quid. Keep a good sharp edge and never had an issue

Rough rider drop point hunter.less than £15. Wooden handles and comes up like a razor. Mines down 3 munties and a number of rabbits without issue. It's fine for the majority of jobs.

They have expanded the range a bit lately.  They make a fixed blade 'cheese knife' which has a very similar blade profile to the original folders.  No sheath for it though.  Bit of an odd thing to my mind.
