My opinion, based on experiences I have had as a police officer, while hunting and while camping, is this. The best survival knives are the survival knives you trust with your life AND that you are comfortable using. I use this analogy A .22 pistol is much more effective in the hands of someone that knows how to use it, than a 30-06 rifle is in the hands of someone that doesn't know how to load the bullets or is afraid of it.
Knives are primarily utility hand-held equipment. They are tools that can be used to perform certain functions. As such, there are different kinds of knives that can be used for different purposes. Here is a basic survey of different types of knives known in modern times.
The most popular all purpose knife is the retractable or switch blade type. As the name implies, the blade retracts inside the handle so you can store it safely when not in use.
