Survival Knives - Which One Will You Choose?
A survival knife is the most important piece of gear in any outdoorsman's pack. It doesn't need to be a large, heavy knife in order to be important for survival. In order for it to be used in emergency situations, you must have it with you. Therefore, a survival knife is the knife in which you will carry most often. Some survival knives have a hollow handle which is filled with a waterproof survival kit with such necessities as waterproof matches and a compass. Survival experts like Bear Grylls will tell you where matches fail, fire strikers will prevail. A magnesium fire striker, which is included with many of our knives, is capable of producing sparks even after being drenched in water. The most important thing to know when selecting a survival knife is, "If you aren't carrying it; it can't help you survive."

Glad I bought this knife. Very solid no wobbles, locks up tight. Sheath is not that bad either. Wanted something I could beat up in this length and this was just what I wanted... All except for the urban camo paint. But the paint job will be no more very very soon! I totally recommend this affordable knife.
Review of: Bushmaster Barbarian Urban Camo Combat Knife with Nylon Sheath
Has become one of three go to every day knives. It's a very pleasant knife to use and work with. Holds a good edge. Now as edge's go it comes with the typical manufacturers edge but is easily fixed. I would buy 30 more.
Review of: Gil Hibben Sidewinder Knife
I like this knife. I like the NRA. How could I not buy it? Seriously. this is a good knife for my purposes. For that once in awhile camping trip, or when out hunting, this is the knife for me. The non slip grip fits the hand well. The hollow handle with compass is very useful. I am quite happy with this knife.
Review of: NRA Tactical S.A.F.E. Knife And Sheath
Just got this knife in the mail today, and have to say I am very impressed! First, it came earlier than stated or expected, and when opened, found it to be razor sharp. And the Pakkawood handle is beautiful. As for the price, I am sure you can rightly sell this blade for 2 or even 3 times your asking price...Especially because of the thickness coupled with the fact it is a full tang knife. 5 stars on all accounts! Thank you!
Review of: Ridge Runner Woodsman Survival Fixed Blade Knife with Nylon Sheath
I am a fan of timber wolf knives but I'm always a little hesitant just because of the pricing. This one didn't disappoint at all. Beautiful, heavy thick stainless steel, and the handle was well finished with no rough edges to catch your hand that some cheaper knives tend to not worry about. Razor sharp, very happy!!
