In my view the Kabar standard fighting knife is about as good as it needs to get. Good steel, ample grip, affordable, anything larger might as well be a gun. But not a 357 or 45. No.

Were I wandering around in Alaska pretending not to be food I would select a short lever gun in 450 or 444 Marlin, maybe 45/70; Marlin Guide gun or similar.

By the way, you know how to identify the winner in a knife fight?

He's the guy who dies last.
