What Makes A Good Survival Knife UPDATE



http://envirosponsible.com/ How to choose a Survival Knife. How much should one cost? How big should it be? Should it be made of stainless or carbon? Should it have serrations?

Don't worry, I'll walk you through it in this video. We'll help you boil it down to the basics.

For me (my opinion only) I prefer a full tang, fixed blade 6" or longer. Yes a good survival knife probably will cost you over $100 (Canadian). I also prefer a hard plastic lock-in style sheath. Leather is usually flimsy and will rust carbon blades in humid environments. And yes, I do prefer carbon blades. However, I just bought a Cold Steel SRK made of aus-8 and it seems promising. I did have a SOG SEAL Pup made of aus-6 and wasn't impressed. I actually sold it to a friend. The SRK is the replacement, which which can actually chop. The securex sheath is superb. The knife actually locks in, and is secure enough to hang upside down on your molle gear or back pack. The SRK is superior to the model of the SEAL Pup I had, and is now on my b.o.b. (bug out bag).

The best survival knife in the world is the one you have in your hand when you need it.

Another great video on how to choose the best survival knife for you was made by the owner of http://www.survivalistboards.com/.

You just can't beat a fine knife. (a good, sharp, blade!) I added nothing
to the discussion...but I do appreciate the video and comments. And I truly
love a good made blade! No doubt about it!!
Blued blades sure are nice in my view. I have a custom knife with a blued
blade. It's a fixed blade...a 5" blade light duty hunter with striped maple
scales. T Bell from Alabama made it and a good leather sheath...for $70.
The blade can be sharpened to a razor edge.
I do my own sharpening...and I love sharpening blades. A man should learn
proper sharpening as soon as possible. It's a 'must have' skill to know.
Not very many folks know how to properly sharpen a knife..and this isn't
good. Learn how! Good luck, fellows!

most outings i go with bk16, and fiskars x7, i can mow down a forest in a
weekend. but my favorite one knife, survival grab and go....kershaw camp
10, fantastic all round tool and for as low as $50. sheath is also top
notch, and easy to mod and add like i did, fire steel, compass, flash
light, tonnes of para cord, fishing kit, wire saw, and a few other things i
can't remember atm. but great buy. 

Автор Palpac (6 месяцев)
Making my own at the moment after watching a lot of reviews on what people
look for, kind of a slightly longer and slightly pointier BK2 shape, but
with a decent size finger choil so you can choke up on the blade as well
as a drop at the front of the handle to stop your hand sliding forward,
shape should still be good for skinning and pointy enough to stick a pig if
needed as well as heft enough to baton, being a 6mm full tang.

An excellent video, one of the best I've seen on understanding survival
knives.

It also taught me the importance of video editing or doing short comments
and pasting them together. My videos are all one take using Snagit. But
your video gave me ideas on improving my videos.

Again, thanks for a fine educational video.

My favorite survival knife is the Ka Bar Marine Corps fighting knife. It is
high quality, and reasonable priced. Developed in WW2, it is still issued.
It's hard to improve on perfection.

kydex freezes in cold weather so you can't pull out your knife, you have
few good points in your presentation but you are expressing your opinion
under the free speech clause which we all embrace, your expertise is in
question though, a survival knife is any knife you have on you in a
survival situation, thus spake mors kochanski, the mora a $15 knife is a
favorite among bushcraft enthusiast, best survival knife hands down is BK-9
by ehtan becker, in my opinion again under the free speech clause. i am an
avid bushcrafter and almost full time camper, owned hundreds of knives in
my days, and use knives every day in my work as a carpenter, i found out
that the BK-9 is the most impressive all purpose knife that i can bet my
life on, thanks.

this is good info!!!!! I think its all choise & feel in most cases the
bigger also makes jobs a lot faster, you don't have to spend a lot of cash
to get a knife that works, then you also have to look at am I going to use
this lots!!!! or once in a lifetime!!! but then how mutch is your life or
your loved ones worth!! I like the video/// like he says ask lots of
questions! happy trails to you

Автор Roy's Knife Sharpening (8 месяцев)
A survival knife is one for cutting, gutting, and slicing. If you want to
chop, dig etc. get an e-tool and camp axe.

Автор envirosponsible (1 год)
Good points though I don't entirely agree. I've read or heard from multiple
sources from masters of their trade that a hilt or guard is unnecessary.
That's just my opinion though. You know best what works for you. Thanks for
sharing.

@iTHackingOfficall The ESEE-6 is AWESOME. I bought many knives and my
ESEE-6 is the best of all my knives if to be used in outdoor or survival
situations. Maybe check scar knives, they are also from 1095 but
differentially heat trated. Good quality. But I'd just take the ESEE-6. The
ESEE-5 is heavier and has a saber grind. Maybe better for chopping/batoning
but the ESEE-6 is strong enough to baton. Did you see the blade test at the
esee homepage? At Junglas section..

what would be a good beginner survival knife?

Автор ThatGuy182545 (2 года)
Got me a Becker BK 2 with a Kydex sheath and Micarta scales. The ONE AND
ONLY beef that I have with this knife is that the belt loop is HUGE and far
larger than it really needs to be, but was easily removed and swapped for a
Tek Lok. Awesome knife.

Автор TKDLION (1 год)
A big knife cannot so some tasks as cleanly as a small knife can, but there
are some things that a small knife simply cannot do. If I could only take
one I would take a large knife. But I think that it is silly to limit
yourself to just one. I carry a big knife and a small knife.

Автор knives save lives (2 года)
it's a cold steel trailmaster

Автор envirosponsible (2 года)
@iTHackingOfficall I don't have experience with either knife yet so my
opinion won't mean much on this matter. Thanks for asking though. I really
dig the Cold Steel Finn Bear. It's a great bushcraft knife and only costs
$17 (less in the US).

Автор Hákon Sigurðarson (1 год)
i got my knife for free, they usually cost around 5-7 dollars but they are
durable, keep a nice edge, and look pretty cool. it is a folding knife with
a picture of an eagle head on the side of the handle, and it has a dream
catcher symbol near the top of the handle. I have no idea what it is called
or who makes them, but if you stumble on one, it will last decades
guaranteed, this one was made in the 80's and it still looks new.

As far as leather sheaths go, if your worried that they will absorb water.
You can oil the inside of your sheat quite simply. And if you oil the
inside of your sheath, your knife will get a nice coat of oil every time
you sheath your knife. I make leather sheaths, and I've never had a problem
with water staying in one. Oh, its also called a Drain Hole

Автор GoingGhillie (1 год)
alright i have alot of disagreements with this video entirely, lets start
with sheaths, most kydex sheaths will eventually eat away at the edge of
the knife, leather will hone the blade and help keep it sharper longer, i
personally use a combination nylon. secondly while yes a handguard isnt
required several safety featurs to avoid slipping should be in place, such
as jimping/scaled grips, as for grips, i prefer drilled milled aluminum
scales to be far more durable and helpful

Hey! Speaking of knives, what do u think is better: KA-BAR or TOPS/Buck
Nighthawk 650? I keep gathering data regarding both knives. Unfortunately,
neither of em has a hole for a lace, which brings up the third option - the
knife u are showing in this video @ 2:29. What is the brand name and model?

Any BUCK knife with the 420HC stainless steel is a good high quality but
low cost knife. They offer a big range of handle styles, easy to sharpen
and holds an edge, good for a starter like my son, he will be getting one
soon. I used an old timer deer slayer for about 15 years, it was the
american made and it served me good to, hands down the best handle material.

full tang knives are stronger and usually more dependable

Автор Roman Knight (2 года)
nice usefull video :) 5* and good knifes you have there :D

Автор envirosponsible (1 год)
Hmm, I'm not sure I agree but I might be misunderstanding your comment. The
lanyard hole is usually on the very end of the knife handle at the bottom
and may be part of the tang or drilled through close to the end. It's still
a full tang if the lanyard hole is drilled through the handle. That
wouldn't compromise the strength of the knife. Does that make sense?

Автор killgora1 (1 год)
Yeah I know. I got two swords, but they wouldn't last five seconds in
anything practical. It's gotta be good steel, or it will just be a show
piece.

Автор envirosponsible (1 год)
I don't care for them but there are many people who do. If it works for you
then it's a great knife. That's the true test.

hatchet/axe + small mora knife > large survival knife

Автор envirosponsible (2 года)
Heck yeah you can. That's what was used by outdoorsmen for decades right up
until the first or second world war. A Frosts Mora or equivalent is very
much like a kitchen knife. I really should have mentioned that in the video.

Автор SirThunderPants (2 года)
Excelent video. Thank you for taking the time to make it. What do you think
of the Becker BK2 Campanion? It's the one that I am concidering for my BOB.

Автор thecutthatneverheals (2 года)
So why are you against saw back blades? You didn't really specify the
downside of it. How does it limit the use of of blade? It's on the spine
that you normally can't use anyway. I'm looking into getting a good
bush-craft blade and to my noob eyes a saw on the back looks like it would
be very useful.

Sounds good. Their good knives after all, though a full tang would probably
be a bit better in a sense of bush craft, but it is a field knife so it has
its back woods uses for sure. Thanks for the info.
