  • The best survival knife

    I own alot of blades, but the best one for bushcrafting-survival i have found is the cold steel bushman bowie..all one piece of high carbon steel and easily makes a great spear due to its hollow handle. $30 bucks and you cant beat it!

    The best survival knife is the one you have when you find yourself in a true survival situation.

    All others are just knives.

      The best survival knife is the one that can cut long, wide deep and continous. In my opinion

        i have a tom brown tracker 2, its my survival knife, but the knife i carry every where, day in and day out, is a bench made 10300 folder, with n690 steel, I keep it razor sharp, and it holds a great edge.sometimes the knife you have with you, at the present time, is your only survival blade, but thats just me , i live way out in the boon docks, in north east arkansas, and nobody carries a big survival knife on their hip every where they go!

                I got the Gerber Steadfast for Christmas from Mrs "Santa". I absolutely love it. The thing is a beast and has really held up to a lot of abuse (not that I abuse my blades, but I have def put it to the test just to see what it's limits might be). It's a little too big to carry on your belt during everyday activity... But when I'm out there, it handles the cutting, chopping, splitting, whittling, carving, filleting, when the task is too big for my folder or Leatherman. It holds an edge well, and for the price, it's very replaceable if I kill it. (Hopefully it will be around for a while). I would like the LMF II to keep in my large pack though, it's an excellent knife.

                  I like my Trail Master SK-5 from COld Steel. Was a little pricey for a knife but never regretted what I payed while I am camping or such. The size of it, 14 1/2 inches, definitely makes it a knife that is not a daily carry aorund. But for a belt knife it rocks.

                    My current favorite is the Cold Steel True Flight Thrower. 1050 carbon steel, cord wrapped handle with a spear point.

                      I've owned a lot of "survival knives" over the years but the one I keep coming back to is my Ontario 12" machete. I've carried and used one in the field for the last 20 years and haven't found anything that comes close to it's utility and ease of care. I carry it in an old Brigade Qurtermasters "Jump Sheath" with a file and stone (for sharpening), a SAK Recruit, a GI match case filled with Lifeboat matches, a magnesium firestarter and a small compass. As Lofty Wiseman teaches; it's the first thing to go on and the last thing to come off when in the field.
                      Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

                          @Stitch, I like it. I have been going back and forth on knives and what to have with me when I'm out biking and hiking and I always seem to go back to my SOG seal pup. I like the size, not too big that it becomes a burden and not too small that it can't do the job. I have been using it for several years and it still holds its edge well.
                          To live is to survive, and to survive is to find meaning into something. Semper Fidelis.
