The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on The Sleuth Journal
“There is no destiny, there is only the edge of a good blade and the skill of the man wielding it.”
A survival knife isn’t just a knife. It’s one of the most important tools to have on you. Whether you are in back country or packing up your bug out bag – you need a dependable knife. A good knife can cut down branches to make a survival shelter, make traps or skin animals. It can also be used for cooking and defense, if need be. That said, not all knives are the same and understanding this before investing in a knife will help you make the most of your investment.
Before you go out and purchase a survival knife, understand that there are characteristics you must look for before purchasing. As well, keep in mind what uses and environments you plan to use your knife in. Manypost was originally published on this site
