In most survival situations, a good knife can make a huge difference. Some of us remember the “Rambo” knives with hollowed out handles and small survival kits inside. The cheap ones were as sharp as spoons and fell apart quickly. This is obviously not something you want to happen when your life depends on it.
Selecting the right knife is a matter of personal preference, availability and your budget. Good knives don’t have to be expensive.
Today survival knives come in all sorts of shapes and sizes but one thing never changed. It is an essential tool to baton wood, process meat, help to build shelters, modify your gear or even use the butt end as a hammer. A survival knife is a workhorse so most of the time people look for very sturdy fixed blades knives that can handle everything you throw at it.
We asked our community what knife they would take if they could choose only one and here are the results.
