I can't find any information about the Ka Bar Desert Storm commemorative knife. Can anyone enlighten me as to whether it may have value as a collectible?
thank you.

I've gotta say there are way too many knives missing from this list for it to even be in the running as the definitive top twenty - where's the F1? Sebenza? Strider? Opinel? Any one of Dozier's knives (particularly his Nesmuk)?

Thanks for posting. I've personally found that hunting is a lot more enjoyable when you've got the best hunting knives available. I personally love my Canadian belt knife.

No Fairburn Sykes Commando Dagger? No Ontario knives? This is not a list of the twenty best knives ever made.

Too bad Marbles Knives ARE NOT made in USA any more. I just bought two, one made in China and the other made in Pakistan.

I looked through the whole list for the Buck 110, and I was afraid it wouldn't be there. But there it was at the end, the best knife I've ever used.

The Buck 110, I bought one from the PX in Korea and carryed it everyday until I left. I then carried it in a mag. pouch while working as an MP at WRAMC in Washington DC. Its a real american classic.

I have a Leuku that I bought as a blade blank from Lauri of Finland. I used it for the last two years while doing some waterfowl and upland hunting. It is GREAT for field dressing/butchering geese. hold the wing or leg and chop through the heavy bones. Need a pole for something? Need to split some kindling? Chop away. I used it to field dress a nice little spike buck this fall. That knife goes everywhere with me when I am in the bush. I made the sheath to hold the leuku, as well as a smaller 3" bladed knife and a ferrocerium fire stick.

Jeez You Guys, a Multi-Tool in a knife category? You started so Strong with the Battle Mistress, a True, un-matched, beast of a Blade that's almost indestructible and You finished with a American I-con, the 110 from Buck and You showed other Awesome KNIVES but it's wrong to include pieces of art that can't be carried everyday for fear of damage or theft. I mean Nobody would use a Museum Quality Knife to clean a Kill, at least Nobody I know but I understand the need to show off as much as the next guy but this should have been about the Best "working" knives, not the Most Beautiful or Expensive! Remember the Handmade Gerbers? I guess not.

Dave, of all the good knives you list, I liked the original Canadian Belt knife the most. I had one of the originals (with non stainless carbon steel)which I lost on the bank of the DuMoine River in Quebec one day in the 60's after cleaning a bunch of Walleyes. I went back looking for it, but could never find it. A really great little knife! However I was not fond of Randall knives, which I found just too difficult to put a decent edge on, and just not worth the money.

there is one blade that wasnt mentioned that is in my opinion the best of the best,maybe it isnt made by a particular company, but made by a skilled master it could do virtually any task you put in front of it...wheres the gurkha kukri?? arguably one of the most useful implements of destruction ever devised..ever..

Take away the Schrade Uncle Henry and the Buck 110, both of which are among the best knives ever, and one must wonder who in hell came up with this list. Seriously, you included a Leatherman here...and a "Swiss Army" knife?? C'mon....gimme a break!!

With all my respects to american people, what a load of yankie propaganda this list is. You wanna research a bit more on spanish steel and add a couple of Toledo, Albacete and Basque hunting knives, like the brand "Aitor", which make some of the best steel in the world.

I use my 6" Wusthof chef's knife every day. Great knife. I don't have a sheath for it, but I'm sure somebody makes one. I realize that's not what this article is about, but there's not much that knife can't do.

The best knife in the world was not mentioned. Kingdom Knives are made in Vermont USA!. D2 Steel, rockwell heat treated and cryogenically treated. Guaranteed for life (against damage). Hunters who dress lots of game swear this is the best knife they have ever seen. Folding or fixed blade, they are hand made and not cheap. They start at $180 and go up.
