JB Knife & Tool has a compact fixed-blade that’s worth checking out.
“The Companion is a compact fixed blade that can handle whatever task you may need it for with ease. It's a simple 1095 carbon straight back blade with a comfortable three-finger G10 handle that is great for a variety of grips,” according to Knifecenter.com.
The 2.25-inch blade is convex ground for excellent slicing and stabbing capabilities, with a brushed satin finish, according to knifecenter.com. The handles are OD green G10 with stainless steel tubes, great for a lanyard or lashing to a pole.
The friction fit Kydex sheath has grommets to allow neck or belt carry. It retails for $85.
