Best Survival Knife Guide and Reviews girl with knife in mouth

Choosing a knife is an essential part of wilderness survival – good bushcraft relies on a good knife and without one you have reduced your chances of survival ten fold.

Choosing the best survival knife to suit your requirement will mean owning several survival and hunting style knives – from full on machete style to small, delicate, razor sharp skinning knives – they all play their part in wilderness survival.

Every hunter will have their favourite and quite often its the most beaten up, miserable looking knife that they love the most.!

But first a word of warning –

It’s common sense really, but when it comes to quality survival knives, you really only get what you pay for – if you buy a cheap knife it will be cheap for a reason – American steel is the best quality material and makes superb knives.

Some European steels are also producing good knives, and even China are upping their game now as consumers demand better quality in their survival gear – but, if you buy cheap from an unknown manufacturer you are risking a poor quality knife and possibly your life too…

The chart below is designed to show the various differences between knives and should help you in your choice of the best survival knife.
