I'm like my spec-plus marine combat.Got the exakt same blade as a K-BAR but with (i.m.o) better grip.

I own a "short" Ka-Bar. Great knife, many uses, pretty affordable, I think mine costed $50.00 new.

If it breaks you can send it back for a new one.

I need a weapon, or atleast I feel I need one. Anways, I was thinking of a knife, since they are easy to conceal and are very practical when in personal combat. Any suggestions on a beginner knife, if there is such a thing?

I used to have a repro Hitler Youth Knife as I got it for cheap from a military surplus fair, but I sold it.

I have a large shoe box of original swiss army knifes, spanning WW2 to present...

What do you mean with "beginner knife"? Do you need an instruction on how to use it?
It´s nonsense to buy an expensive fighting knife for other reasons than putting it in a collection because most probably you will never use it and if so only one time before they put you in the coffin or the jail. Additionally, fighting knives like daggers are often useless for practical purposes.
Better buy yourself a good hunting knife that you can use for outdoor activity.

Ah, makes sense to me.
