    Yeah, a knife is more stealthy than a gun if you can sneak up on someone... but in a fight, everyone wants a gun... The only firearms I have are break action hunting guns... I don't plan on being in many fights... and if I was, what's the chance that I'd actually have a gun with me at the moment? (or my knife for that matter) That's what's so nice about martial arts... You use whatever you have... and we learned how to 'evade' fire from guns, however much use that would do I don't know but it's something.

    A knife is merely a tool, just as a firearm is - nothing more - nothing less.

    The key is to pick the right tool for the job......just sayin'.

    A knife is just part of the equipment needed in the field. What ever works for you.

    Read the "Alamo Scouts". Great book on some serious men who gathered info on the Japenees around the South Pacific. They used knives instead of guns. It was an essential survival tool.

    Sounds like this could be....

    Unless of course you'd like to go to the introductions area, and elaborate on why you like that particular knife.


    I'm sure I've responded to the OP before, but I just wanted to say, why do we keep having these posts? I'm surprised people think any one specific model of knife will be the best, because if there really were one that topped all the rest, we'd all use them. There are different classes of knives that one could argue are better than others, but again, I think it's mostly a matter of preference. I'll always hate spring-assisted folders, and I'll always hate locking knives with locks in the path of the blade. I prefer fixed-blades to have a cross-guard, and I'll never camp with a butcher knife. That doesn't mean everyone else has to be like me, I just find that arrangement the safest and most practical. Different strokes for different folks!

    I believe this will sum it up. the best survival knives is the one you have with you at the time period end of story.

    Even a kitchen knife can be used for survival. I have a small Cold Steel Pendleton with some kind of plastic handle, and a Buck Woodsman that are my 2 favorite knives. Neither was expensive but they just work for me!

    But there IS no best survival knife! Not one for everyone, anyways. Everybody has different styles, different preferences, different needs. The type of knife you need changes from climate to climate as well.

    That said, I'm still curious to see what people's preferences are
