Follow these three tips for survival knife selection and you will have a perfect tool to help you in case anything goes wrong you are out in the wilderness.
1 – Choose a knife with a sturdy blade that is large enough to tackle multiple problems. While a Swiss Army knife style tool can cut smaller things, a much larger knife with both smooth and serrated sides can do a lot more work more quickly.
2 – Buy a survival knife with a full sheath that can easily be attached securely to your belt or backpack. The best idea is to have it on your person in case you are separated from your back during a fall or if you have to run for some reason. The survival knife sheath can also provide extra storage for the tools included with the knife.
3 – Select a survival knife with a good quality compass in the pommel and a large container with in that holds all the extra tools that truly makes a knife a private life. These include a rubber tube, safety pins, fire starters, first-aid kit, fishing hook and line and more.
