Fixed Blades

A fixed blade knife, fixed knives, straight blade knife and straight knives, sometimes called sheath knives, do not fold or slide, and are usually stronger than folding knives due to the tang and lack of moving parts.

Knife blades can be made from a variety of materials. Carbon steel can be very sharp and hold its edge well, and remains easy to re-sharpen, but is vulnerable to rust and stains. Stainless steel may not able to take quite as sharp an edge as carbon steel, but is highly resistant to corrosion. High carbon, stainless steel is intended to incorporate the better attributes of both. Laminate blades use multiple metals to create layers, combining the attributes of both also. Pattern-welding layers different steel types to create patterns in the steel. Titanium has a better strength-to-weight ratio, is more wear resistant, and more flexible than steel, but less hard and unable to take as sharp an edge. Ceramic blades are hard, brittle, and lightweight: they can maintain a sharp edge for years with no maintenance, but are fragile. They are immune to common corrosion.

Handle material can also vary greatly and includes many types of wood, antler, bone, horn and synthetics like acrylic and G-10. Sheaths are usually Kydex or leather.

Fixed blades, fixed knives, straight blade knife, straight knives play a significant role in some cultures through ritual and superstition. Knife symbols can be found in various cultures and were included burial rites, so the dead would not be defenseless in the next world. A common belief is that if a knife is given as a gift, the relationship of the giver and recipient is severed. An item of value, as little as a penny, is exchanged for the gift, rendering "payment" thus completing the transaction and saving the relationship. 

There are many styles to choose from in this section and many uses including combat, camping, self defense, survival, hunting, diving, and bushcraft. It’s not unusual to have one around for EDC carry for utility purposes as well. Some of the most popular styles are the bowie, bayonet, machete, karambit, wakizashi and tanto.

Review of: Deer Leg Bone Obsidian Knife

I'm very pleased with this.  It is very authentic-looking, like a museum piece, and quite well-made.  Should I need to put it to use, I'm sure it wold be quite functional.  This is a blade an aboriginal Native American would likely have carried..

Review of: Damascus Turquoise Skinner

I ordered 2, one as a gift and one for me.  I bought the damascus bone microskinner  6 months ago and was very pleased.  The turquoise looked similar so went for it.  Absolutely beautiful.  Great feel, was sharp but I easily made it sharper.  Great deal for a beautiful knife.  My new collection has begun

Review of: United Cutlery Gil Hibben Sidewinder Fixed Blade Knife

This is a very well made, solid knife. Most of the weight is in the handle of this knife, unlike most other knives of this type that are neutrally balanced or blade heavy. I think that you'll like it!

Review of: French Trade Knife

This is a very good quality knife. It feels great in the hand, the blade has a  distinctly curved shape, it is sharp, and balanced well. The leather sheath is also a snug fit and looks authentic. Definitely fitting for the style of French trapper or trader in colonial North America.
