Survival | Wilderness Survival Knife

Your survival and your survival knife for emergency survival or wilderness survival situations. A survival knife isn’t an essential piece of survival gear but a good survival knife is the most useful piece of equipment you can carry. Putting together a survival kit or survival kits as I do, always include knives. I am always carrying at least a pocket knife and I consider it my number one piece in my emergency survival urban survival kit. With my pocket knife I can open difficult packaging and even cans. A Swiss army knife like the Victorinox 54525 Champion Plus Swiss Army Knife , my favorite also has many uses as a wilderness survival knife. A pocket knife like the champion plus has a Large blade, small blade Corkscrew, can opener, bottle opener Small screwdriver, large screwdriver Reamer, punch Key ring, tweezers, toothpick Scissors, multipurpose hook Wood saw, fish scalier Hook disgorger, ruler Nail file, nail cleaner Metal file, metal saw Fine screwdriver, chisel/scraper Phillips screwdriver Magnifying glass, straight pen Pressurized ball point pen Mini screwdriver, sewing eye.

More wilderness survival knives
the majority include a hollow grip handle and include helpful survival supplies. When I imagine myself in emergency survival circumstances and what I would like out of a wilderness survival knife, I think shelter, fire, water, food. My knife is going to assist me construct a shelter, cutting tree limbs and branches in the woods for my lean to or tripod shelter. Or possibly I’ll use my survival knife to dig out my snow shelter or a dugout. I would like to have something in the handle for starting a fire, matches, flint and steal or a magnifying glass. My wilderness survival knife will help me be able to get water from vegetation or water I have to excavate for. I also would like to carry water purifying tabs or iodine. A few additional survival supplies I can put in the handle of my survival knife are a plus, needle, fishing line, fish hooks, gauze pads and anything else useful. A wilderness survival knife that includes a sheath, sharpening stone and a handle chock-full of survival supplies is a genuine advantage in a survival situation.
Emergency survival and wilderness survival knives, as well as knife skills, choice of knives to carry is one of the most important elements of survival. A knife will help you more than any other piece of equipment that you can carry in a survival situation. Today I'll recommend three knives that everyone who wants to be prepared for survival should own.

A Swiss army knife; Victorinox 54525 Champion Plus Swiss Army Knife
A throwing knife; Boker 02MB163 Bailey Zeil Throwing Knife, Stainless Steel, Leather Pouch
A machete; Gerber 22-41576 Gator Machete with Sheath
Don't select knives just on my recommendations, but on your own experience's and skills, any knife is better than none.
A survival knife; United Cutlery Bushmaster Ultimate Survival Knife with Flashlight and Kit
I defiantly think that everyone should at least carry a folding pocket knife, girls and responsible young people included. I realize that statement is really controversial and I need to explain my thinking. A small pin knife or folding isn't any more dangerous than a needle, tack, pin or even a butter knife. If you have a child that you trust with any of those objects a pen knife isn't any more dangerous. Giving a young person a small knife is a way of showing them that you trust them, with that object, if you can't trust them then of coarse don't do it. If you can trust your child with a small pocket knife it is an opportunity to teach responsibility.
You should also have a knife sharpener and learn to use it, there is more than one technique for knife sharpening I will cover in another post.

Emergency Survival - Wilderness Survival - Victorinox Swiss Army Knife
The Victorinox Swiss Army Knife has been popular and successful for many years for good reason, it is one of the most useful tools ever invented. When you carry one in your pocket you have all the tools you'll need as a minimalist survivor. Build your shelter, one of many useful tools is the saw blade, it will easily cut branches or trees with up to 3 inch diameter. A minimal shelter can be constructed using three branches set up as a tripod. you'll need one straight branch about 2ft. longer than you are tall, approx. 8ft. then two branches approx. 4ft. if you have small forks in your branches at the top of the tripod you won't need to lash them, although lashing is preferred Push the bottoms of the tripod branches into the ground enough that they won't slip and if you can find something (rope, twine, vine, roots)to lash or tie the top do it. Lean more branches and twigs on the sides, then leaves until you completely cover the tripod about 1ft. thick. OK there is your shelter, now your going to need fire and your knife has a magnifying glass use it (when there is sufficient sunlight) to save matches, lighter fluid and other fire starting equipment whenever you can. Prepare your fire pit far enough in front of the shelter that you can easily pass and you won't catch the shelter on fire, 10ft. is enough unless you have high winds. Be safe start your fire further away if you have to. Once you have a good bed of coals you can heat rocks and move them to your shelter, if you need more warmth. Now think about water use your knife to carve a bowl or cup, any carved out hollow that will hold water. You will find many more uses for your knife. Get it and start carrying one now.

Survival Knives for emergency survival or wilderness survival situations.

Survival Knives come in a variety of designs and sizes most have a hollow handles and come with useful survival supplies. When I think of being in a survival situation and what I want out of a wilderness survival knife, I think shelter, fire, water, food. My knife is going to help me build a shelter, cutting limbs and branches in the woods for my lean to or tripod shelter. Or maybe I’ll use my survival knife digging out my snow shelter or a trench. I want to carry something in the handle for starting a fire, matches, flint and steal or a magnifying glass. My knife can help me get water from plants or water I have to dig for. I also want to carry water purifying tabs or iodine in the handle. Any other survival supplies I can put in the survival knife handle are a plus, needle, fishing line, fishing hooks, gauze pads and anything else useful. A wilderness survival knife with a sheath, sharpening stone and a handle full of survival supplies is a real plus in a survival situation. Everybody has different skills and experience and survival kits should be personalized to your skills and experience. Survival mindset and preparedness are the most important aspects of survival. Think of worst case scenarios when preparing survival supplies. Think about what you can carry in different emergency survival or wilderness survival situations. Prepare accordingly by packing your survival gear and supplies in units that are water proof and can be carried. A 72 hour survival kit can be packed in a 5 gallon bucket, something for shelter, fire, water and food. Be sure to rotate food and water supplies before the expiration date. A wilderness survival knife is about as easy as it gets, for something you can easily carry for survival. When I think about what I want to put in the limited space of the handle of my survival knife. I like everything to have more than one purpose. I can use fishing line to fish or sew. I can use gauze pads to dress a wound or as a filter. I can use iodine to kill bacteria in a wound or in water. The standard kit in a survival knife is fine but customizing it to fit your skill is better.Everyone has different skill and knowledge and survival kits ought to be modified to your skills and experience.
