That looks pretty nice, I may have to get myself one of those. A large knife can serve many purposes, but unless it can hold an edge and not break apart (talking about the cheap ones with a bolted-on handle) it won't handle hard use. Anything designed for actual military/LE use is usually pretty good.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
