These teeth are often marketed as being a saw that can be used to cut wood. Due to the design of the teeth and the limited length of most survival knives their usefulness as a saw is limited. These teeth on the survival knives were designed so crews could more easily cut through the relatively thin metal skin on a downed aircraft. These teeth can be used to scrap wood or bark to make tinder to help start a fire. Some survival knives do have actual saw type teeth on the blade. You are still limited in what you can cut by the length of the survival knife blade.

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.

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!
