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!

This weakens the tip and also increases the risk of getting cut while performing tasks with survival knives. Some of these tasks may include cutting, slicing, prying, chopping or digging. Fixed blade survival knives should have a full length tang. This means the blade on survival knives should be a single piece of steel that runs all the way through the handle. The blade should be good quality steel that is strong and will also keep a sharp edge.

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.

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.
