My second favorite Survival Knife

by Brandon

My second favorite Survival Knife would have to be a Kukri, made famous by the Gurkha's. It is long and curved full tang made from leaf spring steel (shock absorber metal often used in Mercedes-Benz). They are usually about 12-14 inches long looks like a boomerang almost.

They have the durability to chop through cement re-bar and then some. They have a pretty flat handle at the bottom for pounding stuff, and grooves in the handle.

Often comes with two smaller knives for eating which are included in this photo.

Great knife!

Kukri survival knife

I think you should carry more than one knife, such as a Kruki and Becker campionion. You don't need expensive knives just durable ones. If you include a Kabar and a filet knife in your pack you should pretty much about cover all tasks.

I like the Tracker but don't feel it has the heavy cutting power of a Kruki.

The Kabar is just because of my military background, and it was versatile. I carried all three everywhere in the world.
