    Budget EDC knife for the BOB

    How about one of these. http://www.surplusandoutdoors.com/shop/survival-accessories/pocket-and-survival-knives/genuine-1950-s-dated-army-knife-400652.html very cheap, strong with a few features. 60 years old but unused, you will need to clean 60 years of packing grease from it when you get it.
