It's time to bring back the broken back seax in a big way. This was the common daily carry knife of free men in Northern/Northwestern Europe for a big chunk of history. Basically it's a straight bladed knife with what looks like a Wharncliffe or reverse Tanto point (down from spine to edge instead of up from edge to spine.). If the point had been brought up in line with the center line of the blade and the clip section swedged it would have been the modern Bowie Knife (Hmmm.).
This blade style turns up on the Cold Steel sax machete (no longer in production.) and the Cold Steel Boar Hunter. It is claimed that the Saxons were named after this tool/weapon, just as the French (Franks) were named after the Francesca throwing axe. It came in a variety of lengths up to full sized sword.
A belt knife has been the emblem of a free man during much of history. It is both a tool and weapon. I would recommend carrying the biggest single edged knife the law allows in your area on your belt (double edged knives are not efficient as tools and not simply as weapons. Carry a back up dagger if you must, but have a single edged blade to work with.). this is the ancient custom of our cultural ancestors.
