Re: survival knife

I guess it depends what your trying to survive?

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: survival knife

Although I am not really into survival, I love knives and have owned many. The ProTool Deer Hunter caught my eye some time ago. Believe that any sturdy knife with good steel in the blade would work fine. There are a lot of ones I haven't tried, but have been happy with most Buck Knives (made in the USA, they do make some in China now). Depending on what you want, look at the Vanguard, Model 119 and Nighthawk. In a folder, the Model 110 with the new paperstone handle is nice. The clip point is a good choice.

Re: survival knife

Never heard of those but .. Im sure you can find survival knife recomendations and more importantly requirements on here

http://knifeforums.com/forums/fusionbb.php?

Assuming you are in a real survival situation..

Fires are essential. Folders and Non full tang aka Rat tail knives will snap in half when batoning wood. I recommend not taking advice away from anyone recommeding a knife that will snap in half when needed most.

Bark River makes several that are made for survival. A lot of hardcore survival nuts and spec ops military use and request Bark River to make them.

Re: survival knife

Check out cold steel, I dont think anyone puts a knife through a torture test like they do. I've got a couple of there knives and they are definately the sharpest knife and easiest to resharpen, that I've ever owned.

Re: survival knife

I have one of the Bark River Bravo knives. They developed these for the Marines. They are a very high quality, rugged knife. The are of a classic design, so if you are looking for something with a bunch of "mall ninja" features they may not be for you.
