Guide to the Ultimate Survival Knife

Being prepared for a situation doesn't evolve around a single piece of equipment it's about having the right set of gear for your environment. Your ultimate survival knife is a fundamental part to anyone's opps gear kit.

An ultimate survival knife is typically the first piece of kit that most people buy, often without considering the environment and demand they will be placing on the knife. We have worked to provide a guide to the group of the ultimate survival knifes on the market. 

When reviewing our list try to think about the situations you have been in where you have needed your knife, or next time your out, think what would I do if all I had was my survival knife.

Tac Force TF-705 Series - Folding Knife
People say it a lot, but this is a lot more knife than what you pay for. Before you even use this knife you can see it has been designed for the end user with multiple built in tools.

Along with the high level of functionality the construction is excellent with a ribbed design it creates a strong handle on the knife but keeps the weight down by removing non-required material.

Users of this knife regularly compliment the light weight design, easy access, comfortable grip and most importantly the ready to use sharp blade out of the box. You might think this is a small knife but any knife users will quickly remind you size is not everything when it comes to a knife.

Cold Steel Black AK-47 Handle with Black Blade Review
This light weight compact knife packs a real punch. It only weights 2.4 pounds and it comes with an extremely sharp blade. The design of the handle is very comfortable, and it's almost impossible to lost the grip. Even though the blade is 3.5", the reach is around 4.85" because of the handle design.

The mini knife is my favorite part of it all, I can't really tell you why but it just feels great in your hand and when I'm using it. The two knives are both so useful and holds an excellent sharp edge well. 

Overall It has some good qualities such as the saw blade of the knife will last for a long time and take a lot of abuse, I consider it a good purchase.

What you might not be aware of is the sling shot with this kit, while it is great we recommend you upgrade to better tube, and start practice how to fire a sling shot before you really need it in action.
