Now you need to understand why choosing the right survival knives is so important. When it comes to choosing a good survival knife, experts have varied opinions. Hence, in this guide over at ultimatesurvivaltips.com they share 5 knives every man should have available in a survival situation.
I hear it all the time, “What’s the BEST Survival Knife David?” So today, I’m coming clean and going to share with you THE best survival knife in the world for any situation that you find yourself in. Ready!?
Okay… So What Makes a Great Survival Knife?
Well there’s a lot of discussion and debate about this, probably because the term, “survival knife” means many different things to many different people.
Here’s the Problem…
A bushcrafter, hunter, doomsday prepper, tactical or military professional… or just regular folks – LIKE YOU and Me… are all likely to come up different conclusions about what constitutes the best survival knife, because of our experiences, expectations and how we see the world.
So let me ask YOU this… “What is THE Best Survival Knife?”
Okay, Got your answer?
Yeah, I had mine to, until a good friend blew my mind one day – when he said to me, “David, the best survival knife is the one you have on you, when you need it most.”
Think about that for a moment…
This really makes a lot of sense. Because, if you are like me, you’re probably not always going to have your preferred, primary survival blade with you… or on you all the times.
So when a disaster, crisis or emergency strikes – and your primary survival knife is not available – the knife that you Everyday Carry ON Your Person becomes your primary survival knife. Make sense?
So I can’t stress enough that you need to have at least one or two everyday carry knives on you at all times.
For me, I have a 5 tier approach to everyday carry, survival cutting tools that I think you might find helpful… HERE it is…
5 Tiers of EDC Survival Knives:
TIER 1 – Neck Knife – A good neck knife is my primary EDC blade because it travels unnoticed and invisible around my neck at all times. My personal choice in neck knives is the super light weight and capable CRKT Folts Minimalist or my new favorite (and soon to be released on Kick Starter) Ultimate Survival Tips: MSK-1 Mini neck knife.
TIER 2 Pocket Knife – When I need a blade quick, I’m reaching for me pocket knife. Now for me, my pocket knife changes depending on the situation. If I just want a general general utility blade… either my Schrade First Response or Gerber Propel are coming along. But if I’m traveling or for some reason want more of a self defense blade, my Gerber Covert – OR –Mini Covert usually get the nod.
