Sorry shadetree but I must disagree. There isn't much you can do with a little knife that you can't do with a big knife. While a small pocket knife is good for some projects, IMO a larger knife ( 6" or larger blade) is more versitile in a survival situation. For example you can use a good quality fixed blade to cut firewood or split kindling. You can't do that with a small knife.
As for the original question in the thread. Both of the knives you asked about are good knives. Given my choice I'd choose the SOG. I agree with the advice of using a non-serrated blade. I have a couple but they are far from my favorite blades. Formost is the fact that serrated blades are a pain in the but to sharpen in the field.
I also have to agree that a Mora is a good blade for a lower cost. If economy is a factor you can't beat a mora.
