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.

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 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.
