    Survival Knife Thread

    A survival knife is an essential part of any survival kit. Many people have different preferences and ideas of what works and what does not.

    So...What is your favorite survival knife and why.

    I personally like the Becker BK7, originally made by Camillus and now made by Ka-Bar.
    7 inch blade
    12 3/4 inch overall


    This knife has an exposed tang on the bottom that can be used as a pounding tool. Also, it works very well for chopping, cutting, spearing, and any other function that could be needed. The grip is very comfortable, but can be slick when wet. It handles well enough to cut very thin, but can chop through wrist size sticks with ease. It keeps an edge very well.

    My Everyday around the property and woods knife is a Blackjack Knives AWAC. It stays with my woods / survival belt. Probably my favorite is one of the older Cold Steel R1 Military Classic. It's a copy of the Randall Model 1. It lives in my Bug out/ Get Home bag. I guess the USMC Ka-Bar would be my next choice. Old School still works for me.

    Another decent survival knife in my opinion is the Fallkniven A1.


    Features an 6.30 in. blade of VG-10 steel, and a 4.70 in. Kraton handle. Comes complete with a Zytel sheath.

    You can pick one of these up for about $150 or so. It is a very good knife. I have never had any problems with mine. It performs fine cutting tasks along with those heavy projects.

    Are there any folding knives that would be reliable in a survival situation?
    Violence, when there is an alternative, is immoral.
    Violence, when there is no alternative, is survival.

    Sure. Any knife can potentially be a survival knife. I usually carry a swiss army knife at all times. It has a saw blade and a few other useful tools. This is really my secondary survival knife. IMO, fixed blades are more versatile. They can be used for chopping and splitting wood as well as performing any cutting task.
