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!
Knives are probably the earliest tools invented by people. Although ancient knives are made from stones, the principle behind its use remains the same as today.
Precision cutting knives or commonly known as thin razor knives have very small blades and very thin handles. In fact, some models are only pencil-sized with half inch thin blades.
