Gosh forbid we ever have to fight some one knife on knife, and the closest I've came was AR-15 vs drunk with a katana attacking pool furnature at a apt complex.
But of blades you own that you would possibly have on you in a end of the world as we know it situation,
What would be the one that you would use( lets for this exercise rule
Out machetes, swords, cutlasses and the like)
Here are my top two choices of what I have- the USMC OKC3S , it is one of the better knifes ever adopted by uncle sam. It is one wicked and tough blade for both survival and fighting.
The second, the WW2 Office Of Stratigic Services "Smatchet", it has a simple manual of arms and will lop off a forearm in one swipe.

Well, a battle axe in a knife fight would be ok lol, they are afterall made for that sort of thing. In fact seeing a person with a battle axe would likey make the attacker to choose somebody else to demand a wallet from.

Yes, the M4 bayonet is a modification of the M3 Trench knife,
Which is what soldiers that carried M1 carbines and submachine guns were issued as a fighting knife.
Bayonet lugs for the carbine began to appear very late in WW2,(Battle of Okinawa) and of course the M4 bayonet to go with it. As
It superseded the M3 trench knife, the M3 production was halted.... So even late war carriers of .45 M3 SMG's (" greasegun") were issued a M4 bayonet as thier fighting knife.

The M3 blade lived on in the M4,M5,M6,and M7 bayonet series till
Finally replaced by the M9 phobus, and USMC OKC3S.

sfguard, I believe I have one of those too ! I bought it at a gun show after the seller convinced me it was era correct for my M1 Carbine and after driving the 50 miles back home and doing some research I discovered that it was not the correct bayonet, so I just kept it anyway ...

Knives, like guns, have no set limit as to how many one can have, right ?

Not exactly a blade but an old tomahawk I love throwing. One the best ways to pass some time is throwing 'hawks and knives.

I would classify that as a blade. I have a Cold Steel Tomahawk and it will put a hurting on you if use properly. They killed a many a white man back in the day. It makes a good survival tool. Much more efficient in chopping wood and other heavier tasks that a fixed blade could be used for.
