Survival knives are thick, strong, and built for strenuous use. If you need to cut, dig, split, scrape, hammer, hunt, prepare, or administer first aid, a survival knife can help with all of that. For more demanding tasks such as trailblazing, bushcraft, and hammering in tent stakes, a fixed blade survival knife is the best choice. There are also lighter folding survival knives that can help you get quick or detailed work done, if needed.
Be prepared with a quality survival knife from brands like Benchmade, Buck, CRKT, Gerber, Kershaw, SOG, and Steel Will.
