I need to get a survival/backpack camping knife and I don't know what to get. I'm looking for something that has a 5 to 8 inch blade, and something that is not super heavy. It needs to be strong so I can use it in emergency build a shelter, or to baton for firewood. It also needs to be under $100. So far I narrowed my search to a Buck 119 special. Cheap but decent knife with a 6 inch blade. I don't like the smooth handle, the sheath, and the fact that its very shiny. Stainless steel means I would not have to worry about rust. a Ka-bar Good all around knife, but the rat tail tang has issues with bending with heavy use like batoning. A Ontario SP-1 Marine, looks like a Ka-bar, but I'm not sure if it built stronger than the old school Ka-bar.
