Fixed Blade Combat Knives
A combat knife is a fighting knife designed solely for military use and primarily intended for hand-to-hand or close combat fighting. Since the end of trench warfare, most military combat knives have been secondarily designed for utility use (clearing foliage, chopping branches for cover, opening ammunition crates, etc.) in addition to their original role as close-quarter combat weapons, and may be referred to as a fighting-utility knife. On the other hand, a military knife that is intended primarily for use in a role other than combat is typically referred to by it's primary role, such as "utility knife" or "survival knife".
