Survival knives have many designs and sizes. There are long and heavy survival knives with a design similar to a machete. Some are still built based on the design of the Bowie knife, with a long strong blade. Still other survival knives are of a folding design for compact carrying. We will cover some of the designs and features commonly found on survival knives.
Buy quality survival knives and equipment, know how to use your equipment, take care of your equipment and they will take care of you. Stay safe and get outdoors as much as possible.
Knives are probably the earliest tools invented by people. Although ancient knives are made from stones, the principle behind its use remains the same as today.
One of the most common features is a section of saw like teeth on one side of the blade. These teeth are often marketed as being a saw that can be used to cut wood. Due to the design of the teeth and the limited length of most survival knives their usefulness as a saw is limited. These teeth on the survival knives were designed so crews could more easily cut through the relatively thin metal skin on a downed aircraft. These teeth can be used to scrap wood or bark to make tinder to help start a fire. Some survival knives do have actual saw type teeth on the blade. You are still limited in what you can cut by the length of the survival knife blade.
Knives are already part of your daily life. They can be used for different purposes. It is really best to understand the different types of knives to know what type would be more useful for you.
