Buck 119 Special is a great option.
Made for hunting but will be ok for fishing and EDC as well.
Classic shape, good quality, excellent value, made in the US.
How about the Buck 119?
Great classic made in the US knife, with proven design and materials.
Looks awesome and is useful for most camping/hunting tasks.
Personally, for a little less than the KA-BAR I'd recommend the Buck 119 instead.
Get a Leatherman multi-tool for EDC (Wave is the best all around but the Wingman is a solid alternative if you find the Wave to be too large) and a heavy duty outdoors knife that can be used to baton wood (like the Mod 4 or RAT-5). Get a solid hunk of steel and make sure it's full tang.
Personally I would go with something like a Buck hunting knife . They are a nice compromise between the smaller knives and excessivley heavy bowies.
