Survival Knives

Post by Owner7771 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 1:10 am

In My personal opinion survival knives with a internal handle based kit are far weaker than a full tang blade and as such are a poor item for general survival use I am putting this post to see what others oppinions on this are. Personally for a survival knife I would have a survival kit in a tobacco tin about My body and a heavy bladed knife which was full tang preferably with serations or saw back. As a back up knife I would go for a skinning knife. I would not go for the gerber Bear Grylls survival knife because to be honnest the blade is too light. I would either go for a blade akin to the colt old west or alamo bowies or the Bear Grylls Parang or of course a kukri as a main knife if I was to set up a genuine bug out bag for if the shtf and britain becomes a war zone what would other members opinions be on this, This is just a fun item of desired bladed kit for survival living away from society

theres more wilderness in Sweden than its in UK, too much ain't free to walkabout in the UK coz the doomsday book remains doom, ain't free man's land like Sweden in my opinion.
I just purhase a rather nice looking Knife over the phone from Blades UK, I look forward to receiving it and will let you all know how long its gonna take for delievery!
Meantime still waiting for a telephone confirmation from Blades UK 'Q' to finalise the transaction, I suppose its busy and that this is my first purchase with them.

I agree, I personally wouldn't buy or use any knife without full tang, I do like the look & style of Blades-Uk Survival knife (3638) £22, a good price and it looks like it would do the job.

Didn't think it was full tang but thought I'd ask as 'liquidator96' said he...
wouldn't buy or use any knife without full tang
...and he could see something I couldn't. :S
