These knives normally have longer blades also. Handle designs would be very similar with switch or retractable blade knives. Most designer knives will fall into this category.
The selection of survival knives is a personal choice. Evaluate what type of terrain you will be in (Desert, Jungle, Woods, Rocks), what your most likely needs will be (digging for water, building a fire, making a shelter, cutting bandages, gathering food), your own physical strength (Don't buy a 5lb. Knife if you can't use it) and keep in mind the points discussed above. When you make your selection remember - Cheap is not a bargain when you need to survive. You do not get any ribbons for finishing second in a survival situation!
These knives are bigger and composed of very strong metal alloy. Although they are utility knives also, they are more suitable for cutting very tough objects. These are commonly issued to military personnel as a general purpose tool and additional weaponry.
