    Lessee: I've got two Moras, my old dive knife, a CS Kukri. an Opinel, a Gerber of some sort, an old multitool and probably several others scattered around the old SUV.
    They just accumulate... .

    Mine's a Cold Steel Finnbear, up in my visor:

    That and A Gerber Gator and Gator Jr. and a cheap military type camping machete in the area behind the seats.

    Oh, and an Ozark trail folder in the other visor.

    Then there's the Swiss surplus pick-mattock in the tool box......

    I keep a Leatherman Wave in the console, a Griptilian 553/serrated blade in the underdash tray, an Estwing E24A and Mora under the back seat (crew cab) with the utility gear, Madison trauma shears in the first aid kit, and a Grip553 plain blade tanto in my back pocket.

    I have one of those $15 Moras in each of my vehicles, along with a small pocket knife in the console, plus a chinese made flea market hatchet. I also have some type of folder on me as well. If I am hunting on my 4 wheeler, I have whatever knives I am using for the hunt, and an Ontario kukri that lives on the 4 wheeler. I was using it the other day to chop down vegetation around my blinds and tree stands for the upcoming season.

    The old Forester has a CRKT in the console and then in the back compartment there's a Plumb hatchet and a small shovel.
    Plus rope,duct tape and some heavy duty plastic trash bags. Ya never know what you might need...?

    I keep bigger chopping knives in the cars, mostly because I've had to move trees out of the road a lot.

    2 cheap options that work well are the Cold Steel Kukri Machete and Aranyik E-neps

    Yeah, I keep this little gem and a good shovel in the truck too. There's also a SAK officer model in the console and a buck lite for a spare knife. I always have a good folder in my pocket. Those are all in addition to the Buck 119 and the Gerber Multi-plier that are in the door pocket.

    I have a Kabar partially serrated folder. Not pretty or new, but sturdy. Free if you want it. (Wish I'd read this yesterday. Your ARKs were dropped off today. :confused: )

    Pair that with something like RTAK 2 or a sturdy sharpenable shovel, 12-18" machete, or a hatchet, and you should be GTG.

    Some wrap up here; I ended up going with Mora Companions and Spyderco Cara Cara Rescues in all the cars (found the Rescue mentioned in an old thread here).

    I did order a 5 ¼” Ka-bar for my truck just for grins as a birthday present to myself.

    I picked up a G-81 at a gun show for $20 it's a great knife for the $. I would like to get a G-78.
    I took my G-81 on a salt water dive, that was not a good idea.

    A good old Stanley utility knife or one of it's many variations is hard to beat as a sharp, cheap cutter.

    I keep a full toolbox in my daily driver, but in the door panel compartment is a leatherman super tool 3000, and a cheap Amazon flipper on the visor.
    We have lockblade flippers on the visor of all our vehicles after a friend and her young son hung helplessly upside down in an overturned suv until rescued.

    Call me cheap....but my truck tool box has a 14 inch machete and a stainless Mora. I don't like stainless but the tool box can be damp in the rainy season.

    In the spirit of the thread , I also have a gerber machete in its scabbard ziptied under the front rack of my honda atv.

    In my daily driver I have a full size single bit ax, a 10lb fire extinguisher, and a full size spade fastened to the inside of the bed, giant zipties, and a full change of clothes.....
    Fireman's tools.

    A recent check revealed a fillet knife, a multi-tool with knife blade, a box cutter for use at the food bank and an old Plumb hatchet. There may be more but I found what I was looking for (vise-grips).

    Hatchet and a mora.
    Years ago, I bought a bunch of the eriksen mora 710s for dirt cheap. Gave some away and scattered the rest of them through vehicles toolboxes and hunting packs.
