My Favorite Survival Knife

by Charlie
(Nashville, TN, USA)



Is the Cold Steel SRK. It looks a lot like the Fallkniven above. The blade is covered with a Teflon coating which helps to protect the AUS 8A Stainless steel.

The clip point is extremely strong but fine enough for delicate work. The knife is 3/16 of an inch thick which makes a strong tip without sacrificing sharpness. It is heavy enough for chopping, but light enough for the jab or parry.

I have used it for 5 years for hiking and canoe camping in the Boundry Waters. I've dressed deer, goats and squirrels with it. If I'm in the woods, it's on my hip.

Cold Steel

by Walter Grant
(From Western N.C.)

I like 2 Cold Steel knives.

1. The SRK good size and weight. Strong build and easy to use 6" blade.
2. The master Hunter plain blade. Same as above but different style tip and shorter 4" blade.
I feel that either or both knives would serve most outdoor chores well.

As a side note.( PERSONAL PREFERENCE ONLY )
I feel that a good KUKRI knife can replace both a machete and small camp-axe. If you take the time to learn it's proper use.
Less 2 carry
Less 2 keep sharp
Less 2 loose.


Be a wilderness survivor, not a wilderness victim.

Always carry two survival knives

by John
(Ofallon IL)





Over then years of military service as a Combat Engineer and camping trips with the family I have had the opportunity to use many knives. The two knives that stand out to me are the Cold Steel SRK and the SOG Seal Pup.

These are both very durable knives and can get you through any task. They have a noticeable weight difference. I use the SRK for heavy work and the Seal Pup for light tasks and also for scouting trips. The sheath on the SRK needs some reworking to perfect it. The sheath for the Seal Pup is very versatile and can be carried in several ways, which is useful.

For everyday carry the SOG Flash II is a wonderful pocket knife, I use it for everything, and it has never let me down. It is a light weight knife and you can forget its even there on your belt.

Depending on your personal preference any of these knives will do the job. I would use the above mentioned knives in any survival situation where my life hung in the balance.

While there are many good and more expensive knives out there, when it comes right down to it a knife is a tool that has many uses. And the price of the tool does not make any difference, it's whether or not the tool will perform when you need it too over and over that counts most.
