    I am looking for a good stainless steel fixed blade for hunting/survival applications. I think I have it narrowed down to a SOG SEAL 2000 or a Kabar Next Generation. I also considered a Fallkniven A1, but felt that (at least for my budget) it was a bit on the expensive side for a "using" knife. I would be especially interested in feedback from anyone who has had experience with any (or ideally more than one) of the 3 knives mentioned above, but would also be willing to entertain other suggestions. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hmmm...I haven't dealt with any of sorry on that part but, I would get the seal just because I like the look more + it has a slightly larger handle AND ( if your planning on getting the leather sheath with the ka-bar) the Sog's sheath would be more durable.

    i would recommend the Fallkniven...

    i own all three of them...

    if the Fallkniven is simply too much money, as it would be the best 'user' knife of the three...

    the Seal or the Kabar are fine fixed blade knives...

    both of those knives have good, proven blade designs...

    of the two i guess i might go with the SOG... remove the coating and it's an excellent knife...

    but the Fallkniven is easily the best knife of those... far and away...

    Of the ones you listed as a user knife, I would choose the Ka-Bar.

    I know these three knives very well. A1 is one of my favourite blades, I also did a comparative test of KBNG and SOG Seal 2000 for Czech knife forum. You can see the pictures here: Link
    If I can give you an advice, take Fällkniven. A1 has much better steel, it is very, very strong, cuts and chops well and is comfortable in hand. You can depend od A1 even in extreme situations, it will worth the money.
    Kabar is weak, mainly between the blade/handle and the handle/pseudohammer. It has also very thin point. SOG is stronger than Kabar, but his big drawback are serrations.

    I have several KA-BAR knives and a WHOLE BUNCH of the Fallkniven knives including the A1.
    The best knife for the money spent would be the Fallknive's one very tough and strong knife.
