2 pointsI had a look at blade hq site, as well. I can highly recommend the Cold Steel kitchen classics 3 inch paring knife as possibly the best fixed blade utility knife I ever used. You'll need to make a sheath, and avoid tungsten v-sharpeners, because of the flat grind, but hard to beat at $8.95, and won't be mistaken for a weapon, in most cases.
2 pointsI scoped the Blade HQ site. Was hoping to find the Bahco Laplander saw to suggest to you. Unfortunately they don't have it. But that in combination with the Mora Companion ( your choice of carbon or stainless steel ) is an ideal duo of cutting tools that won't break the bank and still give you excellent service. I also looked for Bear and Sons knives. They don't have them either. But they have a real nice carbon steel jack knife that is inexpensive. But between the three you have a solid set up and still be under $100 leaving you with enough money to grab a ferro rod.
