Which Knife do you recomend.
Also for the Glock shovel do recomend the glock or a milsurp

KA BAR, great history behind this knife and it is a proven tool for all kinds of field work.
That being said, the Glock sure looks neat, but why rely on something that is known for making the plastic fantastic? If you want a good all around knife, go KA BAR, if you want a knife to match your Glock 19, 22, & .45GAP then...

The Glock knife doesn't impress me too much. I may get one just to have a knife that I don't mind beating up. I bought the mini Ka Bar, which I keep on my Sniper pack for work. It is a great knife.

i have both.

KA-BAR vs. Glock field knife is like a real Colt M16 vs. a Raven .25

KA-BAR all the way.

the glock kife is too light, hard to unsheath, and the blade isn't very wide.

I dont remember ever looking at one
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 6:21:43 PM EDT
I like mine but I'm a bit partial as I used to work for them. A certain navy unit has been known to buy them by the case for many reasons. Not because they are the be all, end all in combat knives but because they are 1. Cheap 2. Durable and 3. Don't scream US military.

They can get them for like $12 ea and look at them as disposables. One reason mine isn't high on my perfect knife scale is that it is quite hard to sharpen, but it is very durable.

Are you kidding ? This is arfcom. GET BOTH.

If I could only have one, I'd probably go with the Ka-Bar, with the partially serrated edge.

If you want top of the line, get a tops knife.

Ka-Bar

Well if I could buy a glock knife for 12 buck I would buy both, but because I can find them no cheaper than 39 buck I will stick with just a KaBar. Is this the knife I should buy if my price range is about 70 bucks max.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 6:37:55 PM EDT
I like the Glock shovel because it is alot lighter than the GI shovel. I paid $35 for the Glock shovel & the little holster at a gunshow.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 7:15:54 PM EDT

The K-Bar is a much better knife, but the Glock is excellent bang for the buck. For the money, it's a good solid knife.

no experience with glock knives, however a ka-bar is an excellent choice, imo

OH, you wanna go cheap?
Then, no doubt, get a Becker.

Feel lucky HK knives are a minimum of like 90 bucks because they say HK on em. Go for the KA- BAR.

I like mine. You can't go wrong for the price. Ka-Bar is more of a sentimental favorite. Both will do the job they were designed for. Get both.

For the knife I'd suggest the Ka-Bar but the shovel is an impressive piece of kit. Almost seems TOO light for what it is intended to do. My bro has one and I have several surplus GI shovels... Jury's still out for me on the Glock shovel.
Link Posted: 3/30/2006 6:48:20 AM EDT
K Bar. I would suggest the D2 Extreme. Sweet knife.

Buy this one instead. Even though the handle is made of "plastic" as all the Glock-Hatas would say . My favorite knife ever.

Link Posted: 3/30/2006 7:02:53 AM EDT
I've never really checked out the GLOCK knives, but I would like to get one of thier E-tools. I once had a Kbar that would rust if it was in the same room with a glass of water.
Link Posted: 3/30/2006 7:26:39 AM EDT
The Glock knife is a great little knife for $25. If I had more money than that to spend, I'd probably get a Becker or Ontario.

The Glock E-tool is also pretty nice, and compact as hell.

Link Posted: 3/30/2006 7:31:38 AM EDT
I would go with Ka-bar, that is a real knife. The blade is made from 1095 carbon steel. This is the same stuff used for making road grader blades and hinges, real tough stuff.

As for shovels, it depends on the purpose. I personally like the Glock because it is light weight. But then the Glock shovel is at least 3 times the cost of USGI surplus shovel. My choice Glock if you have to carry it, and USGI surplus if you are just having it around.

+1! The Becker Combat/Utility 7 is a better knife than either the Glock or Ka Bar.
Link Posted: 3/30/2006 9:10:07 AM EDT
I have both, and I think they're both pretty good knives. My Glock knife is on my IBA right now, and works great as a field tool, just like it's designed to. My Ka-Bar I got while I was in Iraq, so it has a good bit of sentimental value as well as being one tough knife. My suggestion would be to go with what you like the best and evrybody else's opinions be damned.
Link Posted: 3/30/2006 9:14:10 AM EDT
Not on your list, but I would get a Strider if I needed a good fixed-blade
