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!
The blades of cooking knives are sometimes pliable and longer. They are not as strong and sturdy as utility knives. The blades of cooking knives are thinner to easily slice meat and other food stuff.
Knives are already part of your daily life. They can be used for different purposes. It is really best to understand the different types of knives to know what type would be more useful for you.
