Survival Blade(s)?
by: Scout671

That's funny...I carry both the kukri and the overlander to cover all bases. Kukri on the back overlander on the hip. The only other knife i carry is a bechmade folder for emergencies. ;) I do occasionally swap out the overlander for my SOG seal pup elite (another awesome mid-sized blade). FWIW.

I agree...
by: Jody Swem

I didnt realise my dad wrote a review on this site that I read often, well... I totally agree. TOPS makes a sweet blade, and not only that, the handle is pretty sweet too (hehe). An all round sturdy knife, perfect durablilty for being stuck in the wild.

On the other hand, I noticed a slight disagreement among those who prefer other knives such as the kukhri. I too have been in combat and I would like to say I am a knowledgable outdoorsman...
I think I make a wise and democratic statement when I say this: "Survival is about being prepared for the worst and using what's available at hand". I own a kukhri and yes, it is better for chopping, but its too big to carry, especially if you're humping the hills (not the jungle though).

Kukhri
by: Stephen Swem

A kukhri is too large to carry around all the time and does not facilitate fine work needed to make useful items. A smaller knife can be carried and therfore be more suceptable to being on hand when needed. I must admit I have a Kabar cutlass in my truck. In case I get stuck and need to chop some wood for fire, or structure. But it is too large to carry around in the general public. If it's not on you when you need it then it's useless. I can chop wood for fire and structure. You just need to baton chop the wood.

Khurki knife
by: Anonymous

It is my opinion that the Khurki knife is the best survival knife. It is cheap and capable of chopping wood for a fire and for shelter.
