Some survival knives have a hollow handle feature. The movie "Rambo" popularized this style of survival knives. Survival Knives like these are sometimes called "Rambo" knives. One of the selling points to these survival knives is that gear can be stored in the handle. A drawback to many hollow handle survival knives is the handle is attached to and not actually part of the blade. This creates a weaker point that may fail when you need your survival knife the most. There are some hollow handle survival knives that are fashioned out of a single piece of steel. The handle on these survival knives is part of the blade so you do not have the weak point. There is another consideration with hollow handle survival knives. If you lose your survival knife you also lose all the gear stored in the handle.
Another type of all purpose knives are the fixed blade varieties. These knives have more stable blades. Typically, screws are used to hold the blade firmly in place and are attached to the handle.
Precision knives are ideal for cutting paper and thin cardboard. These knives are commonly used as tools for handicrafts and other highly specialized cutting jobs.
