If you've got the $100 to drop on a fixed blade, and you really don't have a good one already, I would echo the other sentiments of buying a Mora, at least to have until you decide what else you want. Either way you will find a use for it and not be disappointed in your purchase. I have the Mora Bushcraft and it's the only fixed blade in my BOB, presently. You're not going to baton wood so well with it because it really doesn't have much mass to it, but personally I carry an actual hatchet and a little finger saw for that.
Why it's awesome:
-Grippy, feel-good rubber handle
-Incredibly freakin' sharp, right out of the box...I shaved hairs with it. They use what they call a Scandinavian Grind, basically there's no secondary bevel.
-Seems like good quality steel. I haven't trashed it yet.
-Made in Scandinavia, not Taiwanese crap.
Why it's not awesome:
-Not full tang, more like 3/4; however all the reviews I've seen haven't had any issues with blade looseness, even after extended use. Whatever they do, that thing is in there pretty good.
-I don't like the hard plastic sheath...but a little duct tape laid in around the the inside top edge could alleviate any retention fears.
Either way, you can get them on Amazon for like $20-$40, which is probably one of the best gear values I've found yet.
After the light came on in my head, I decided to do a quick search for 'leather mora sheaths', and found this guy: http://www.jreindustries.com/mora.htmHell yes.
Everything is perfect now!
