    I have been looking around for a tactical kinfe for a while now, but can't really find what I'm after.

    The strider knives look nice but are real pricey. I am after a simple fixed blade no more than 9.5" overall long with a simple braided cord handle and a small/medium tang, if small preferable serrated to give extra grip and stop the hand from slipping forward.

    The nearest thing to it might be the cold steel thrower, but is lacka tang of any description.

    Can anyone here point me in a good direction?

    Badger Ordnance made a small limited run of knives pretty much as you desribed. Might give them a call as they are not a catalogued item. www.badgerord.com

    Some of the best knives you can buy for the money are made by Bob Dozier.

    The knife that seems to fit my description best is the Cold Steel thrower http://www.coldsteel.com/fixed-blades-throwers.html is there any reason this knife would not make a good tactical companion?

    I see it as an added advantege being able to throw it.

    Maybe the ede won't be as fine as a normal knife?

    The knife you describe is an exact example of the EK Commando. Not sure who is stocking them now but that is exactly the knife and fairly reasonable. Last time I looked they were right around $100. Check Ebay and other knife websites.

    Have seen it used and carried by lot of guys around Fort Bragg in early 90's.
