The OP asked for a general purpose fixed blade
Sorry, my post sounds a bit snotty, not how its supposed to read
I'm not 100% sure what "it's pants" means, but I think sometimes people put down double edged knives more than they should. Anything knifey (knives are for cutting) you want to do you can do twice as much with an equivalent double edged blade. Now, there are some secondary tasks that people often use knives for that the second edge can hinder.
I do prefer a single edge, but I think I could walk into the woods with a nice double edged knife and come out alright. This one for example:
