The blade length on survival knives is often the subject of debate. Most people should avoid the huge "Rambo" style survival knives. They are heavy and can be awkward to use for many of the tasks survival knives may be expected to perform unless you are familiar with how to use the knife. Many people feel more confident with long heavy bladed survival knives. Others feel survival knives with a long blade are too awkward for some of the tasks they expect survival knives to do.
Because combat knives have larger and longer blades with heavy handles, it would be very difficult to use them for cutting small objects. Designer camping knives have sheaths made from leather.
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.
