If you were to ask a group of outdoorsmen the question “If you had to live in the woods and could only have one piece of equipment, what would that piece of equipment be?”, odds are that the majority would say “a knife”.   The reason is that a knife can be used for many, many purposes (everything from making a trap to preparing food to protecting yourself).

In preparing your own survival preparation plans, I personally recommend that you have two knives:  the first, a high quality folding pocket knife (for smaller more precise work), and the second, a larger high quality non-folding knife that can be used for larger efforts (e.g., preparing a shelter).  Provided below are knives that I recommend, with my top choices shown as Highly Recommended“.
