    What is a good budget survival knife.

    I like the Buck 119, but it does lack a lanyard.

      Hi...


      Ah, yes...the question with a million answers...!!

      A "survival" knife exists in the eye of the beholder.

      However, since no other info is provided, I have to say the Mora knife. It's a fairly compact case knife, keeps its edge well, and has many uses...like cutting food, skinning, etc. And, it is inexpensive.

      More info can be gotten by googling 'Mora knives'.

        The Buck 110 folder is a top choice at about $40.

          For about 20 bucks at Walmart you can get the Gerber Profile Fixed Blade knife. It is a great all around survival hunting knife for the money. It is a full tang non-serrated knife that holds a pretty good edge for the money. I have one I keep in my Jeep as a back up knife. It will do just about anything you need it to do. Stay away from ones with a compartment in the handle and ones that are much over 4 inches. Just MHO

              Any "survival" knife is actually a good quality bushcraft knife, that is a fixed blade knife, probably a drop point blade of 3 1/2 to 5 inches, and if you want to spark fires with it probably with a carbon steel blade. One can pay $100 for a fancy knife that might meet this criteria and looks cool, or one can pay $25 for a Mora Knife that is really plain jane and un-cool looking but meets all this criteria.

                I like the ones with hollow handles to hold things but they lack tang strength. Its hard to beat a Swiss Army knife for everyday carry and "urban survival". For defense with them you just run the heck away from the attacker. I usually carry a cold steel bushman or lite hunter in the back woods with a lighter taped to the scabbard. I usually like normal size knives because the one you have with you is better than the one in you truck or house. I lost several big belt knives when the weight pulled them off the belt so I do not buy high end for daily use,camping or hunting.

                        Hi...


                        I just heard about Cold Steel's new "Survival Edge" knife with a 5" blade.


                        Prices for it varied between $45.00 (from Cold Steel) and $27.00 elsewhere.


                        Their propaganda looked interesting.

                          Buck 119 and a Mora stainless are always with me in the woods. A decent lock back is always in my pocket except when flying.
