Survival Knives for Camping and Outdoor Activities

Knives are an essential tool when you’re outdoors. Have you ever imagined how hard a camping situation would be without some sort of cutting tool? That’s why carrying survival knives in whatever outdoor activity you’re doing is a must.

It’s true.

Camping knives can double and act as replacement tools for cutting jobs. For example a pair of scissors. Sure you can just bring a pair, but then now you have two things to carry. However, in the idea of being compact to make carrying things easier, you’ll want a single tool to serve as many purposes as possible.

Survival Knives

Most survival knives can handle all sorts of cutting jobs. This involves cutting pieces of cordage, cutting food pieces like meat and veggies, and cutting branches that block paths. In addition, most knives are small enough to easily carried in a pocket or a bag pocket. Furthermore, the knives themselves require little to no maintenance at all.

There are many types of knives to choose from but they basically function the same, they cut things. This way you can choose your survival knife based on looks and design and still know that it will work as expected. Just one thing to note is the material. Make sure it’s easy to sharpen and it stays sharp so you can use it over and over again in your outdoor adventures.

    Any knife with a hollow handle will not last and is simply ‘eyecandy’.
    A carbon-steel, full-tang, six-inch blade will perform far better than these…things.

      Hi mike, thank you for your input. Most of these are general purpose use for most camping activities and are cheap. I’ll try and compile a list of high-performance survival knives.

      Edit: Here is the list of full tang survival knives.
