The selection of survival knives is a personal choice. Evaluate what type of terrain you will be in (Desert, Jungle, Woods, Rocks), what your most likely needs will be (digging for water, building a fire, making a shelter, cutting bandages, gathering food), your own physical strength (Don't buy a 5lb. Knife if you can't use it) and keep in mind the points discussed above. When you make your selection remember - Cheap is not a bargain when you need to survive. You do not get any ribbons for finishing second in a survival situation!
Cooking or Kitchen knives are also utility knives but they are specifically designed for the kitchen. There are many sub-types of cooking knives such as boning, fillet, chefs, cleaver, bread, and ham slicer. There are other small knives that can be used for the kitchen but these are the most commonly used varieties.
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.
Now, knives are made from metal. Some are really sophisticated which are composed of different alloys to achieve strength, durability, and superior sharpness.
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.
