Boy I'm Goin' to Cut You So Good You Goin' to Wish I didn't Cut You So Good

So I lost my Gerber River Runner Knife for the second time and I am looking for a new knife. I would prefer it to not be blunt because if I am going to defend myself from the Cougars at the Rio (the kind who enjoy margaritas and young kayaking studs with bitchin mustaches, not deer) then I need a pointy blade. Most important is a blade that is not going to come out of its sheath and the sheath itself come off. Cheap is good too. Any ideas?
Thanks

Love the title. Benchmade River Knife - NWBackpack.com I got one of these as a gift in 2002 and I love it. I did add a zip tie around the clip as I lost it in a rather inglorious swim...was drifting lazily in Broken Nose and hardly moving when I boofed the last hole, get reeled back in, surfed, then run over by a raft which proceeded to crush me against a rock. Somewhere in there, the knife came off, but I found it later that day when they turned the water off. Anyway, I like the blade shape as a compromise between pointed and blunted. The thumb cam keeps the blade from coming loose and it can be tightened more or less too.

What the heck is up with the buzz software not accepting carriage returns?

Those Gerbers piss me off, lost 3 before I got that bear claw thing. Not pointy though.

the bear claw is the way to go cuz when your hands are really really cold and you can't feel them you can still hold on to it. it has the hole for the index finger
