Good one. I'd probably go with the classic Military. It's lighter to carry, still very strong, and the ultimate work knife. It has a great point for stabbing, great grind and belly for slicing and skinning, works great with gloves on and has a huge grip that provides great comfort over long periods of use.
However, as you said OP, a fixed blade is where it's at for "survival" type uses. For that, I'd probably go Temp. 2, Rock Salt, discontinued Hossom designs, or some big design from ESEE
