I have a 1980's Guardian and a 1976 Gerber Mark 1 boot knife. Why don't they make really great fighting knives like this anymore? It's all folders that I wouldn't want to use out in the real woods. Is it that they are afraid they'll be sued if one of the double bladed knives are used in a crime?

They discontinued the cool fixed blade fighting knife used in the movie Aliens in 2000. They probably just don't sell as well as folders do these days.

There are still alot of the older fixed blade Gerbers around but they are higher than hell, I also like the ols US M3 knifes but the original one's are the samr way, to rich for me . I do have a nice USMC KaBar , another great military knife
