I wouldn't recommend a "titanium" knife, firstly because for $10, it's not titanium. It's probably some chinesium knife that won't hold an edge very well. Secondly I don't recall Camillus having a great reputation due to materials and QC.

If you're looking for a good budget knife, I know Ka-Bar and Becker make good ones, and if you can swing an Izula, that would be my choice. Here are some links. Izula Ka-Bar 1 Ka-Bar 2 Ka-Bar 3.

The reason I'm recommending Ka-Bar and ESEE is that they both use 1095 carbon steel which is an excellent choice in toughness and edge retention. I almost forgot Mora, a superb Swedish knife that is renowned for its steel and edge retention, and used worldwide by folks in the workforce and outdoors communities.

The ESEE and Ka-Bars will run you $40-$60, and the mora will run you about $15. You can get Moras and Izulas at Cabelas, but Amazon is also great. Good luck.

I'd consider a Morakniv fixed blade for each kit. They're so durable, great grip, sharp as heck, and are cheap enough to get a few easily from Amazon: Morakniv on Amazon

u/CedarWolf · 11 pointsr/Survival

I prefer a Morakniv knife. They're usually about $12 to $25, go on sale often, and come with an excellent hard plastic sheath. They're light, durable, and simple. A friend of mine took one up the entire Appalachian Trail as his main trail knife in 2015; he loved it, never had a problem with it.

This is a great knife, great steel, and very affordable. I keep in in my GHB, a Morikniv:

You have fishing line, hooks and lead but no knife. I see a multi tool but I think it’s worth the weight to add a fixed blade knife. It’s useful for preparing fish, cutting wood, and so much more.

Watch this or one like it to drop in price (CamelCamelCamel) like it does a few times a year:

Here are my personal essentials.


  • Spyderco Delica 4: $60 VG-10 steel, comes in tons of colors
  • Spyderco Endura 4: Larger version of Delica
  • Morakniv Companion: $12-$20 A really awesome fixed blade, outperforms knives triple it's price.
  • Victorinox Tinker: $20-25 classic swiss army knife, really great quality in general. Lots of tools but not too many so it's easily pocket carried.
  • Victorinox Cadet: Smaller Swiss Army Knife, aluminum handles. Lots of colors.
  • Kershaw Cryo, or Cryo 2: $20-40 steel frame lock, Hinderer design, good price, tons of colors. The Cryo 2 is the same as the Cryo just larger.
  • Ontaro Rat 1 or 2: $25-30 Classically shaped folders with a very rugged build for a liner lock. The 2 is a smaller version of the 1.

    Also, you're going to want a sharpening system that works for you in the long run. I personally use the Spyderco Sharpmaker But there are tons of good sharpening options out there.

    P.S: You're going to get a lot of people hating on your Gerbers most likely, that's because they're honestly not worth it in the long run. They use very low quality steel for the price and they don't have the best quality control. I'm not saying your Gerbers are trash or anything. But they definitely won't last very long. Just about all of the knives I listed will last you a lifetime if you treat them right, and oil/sharpen them correctly.

Mora Companion for fixed blade and the Opinel N 08 for a folder (could order them directly to your buddy's house to save some time).

Both have great quality, are very usable (cut well) and are amazing for the price.

Afterwards it would be cool to leave them in the woods with a note to a lucky finder or mail them to yourself back home.

u/test822 · 3 pointsr/Survival

usually full-tang for strength (although partial-tang moras are nice), at least 1095 steel (not cheap chinese stainless, although mora and fallkniven use good quality stainless)

grind can be either scandi or flat or saber, with scandi being strongest and thickest blade, easiest to sharpen but harder to cut through something or do fine work due to the blade thickness, and flat grind harder to sharpen but easier to cut through things but slightly weaker blade, with saber being more rare and basically inbetween the two

no bullshit serrations because you won't be able to sharpen that or do fine work with it

my perfect bushcraft knife would be full-tang, spear point, saber grind, about 4-5 inches, micarta handle (so it stays grippy when wet), so something like a L.T. Wright GNS Saber or Fiddleback Forge KE Bushie or GSO 4.1 or ESEE PR-4.

but those each cost like $200-$300 and I have an aversion to spending that much on one thing when I can just buy an Old Hickory Butcher Knife, a Morakniv Companion and an Opinel No.7 all for literally $40 combined and have a bunch of different knives suited for different situations (butcher knife for hacking/batoning, mora for general use, opinel for fine work)

edit: woah this dude modded an old hickory

For a BOB and at that price, I'd get a Mora Companion fixed blade.

EDIT: At a higher price, I'd get an ESEE 3-5 with the hard sheath. Both suggestions come with a nice hard sheath.

I carry my Swiss Tool (or a cheapo multi tool if it's just a day trip) and a morakniv straight blade:

Fifteen bucks and it's one of the sharpest knives I've ever owned. Plus you could lose one every trip and you really wouldn't be that upset. I can't say the same with my Swiss Tool.

u/Sock_Eating_Golden · 2 pointsr/EDC

Morakniv knives. Easiest $15 you'll ever spend. Even if you do ruin it, it's only $25. But, seriously try to kill it. You will not be able to...
I have the companion linked below. I carry it while completing lawn chores and running outdoor power equipment. LOVE it. The sheath provides fast, easy access. But holds the knife very securely.

Can't go wrong with a Morakniv Companion. Only $15. I love mine.

If I know I am going to be in a survival situation?

Phone + Battery, 50 Flares, vehicle with a full tank of gas would be my top 3.

More serious you say? Just limiting myself to ordering online, mostly amazon -

  1. Warbonnet hammock and tarp

  2. Sawyer water filter

  3. 1,000 feet of 750 cord

  4. 50 bic lighters

  5. 12 Months supply of food

  6. Heavy knife

  7. Light cheap knife

  8. Any expensive sleeping bag

  9. Cell phone, including my favorite RPG games.

  10. Solar recharger


  • Assumes I am stranded in the forest of the Northwest United States.


    Given a more specific survival situation, a budget, weight limit or other constraints, I may adjust my list accordingly.

My boyfriend bought me a morakniv companion a few weeks back and I've never had a more multitasking blade. Though designed as an outdoorsman knife, theyre razor sharp but also light weight and the rubber handle makes them very comfortable to hold. Plus, they come in great plastic sheaths that make them convenient for camping trips or picnics. 1000% would recommend. This is the one I have http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BTJKB00?cache=686004116d7b72b4413c26fe29e01dc1&pi=SX200_QL40&qid=1407024182&sr=8-1#ref=mp_s_a_1_1

There are a lot of multitool axes for sale.

Look for survival axe-shovel combinations, or the famous Chinese Military Shovel. And then there's stuff like the Crovel, which is like an extended USA made knockoff version.

For survival I would go with a good quality knife first (Fallkniven for example, or Mora if you're on a budget), and then a simple durable axe/shovel combo. The rest is kind of bullshit, an axe is way easier in maintenance than a saw, and hammers are easy to improvise (stones, animal bones, etc)

If you're looking for stuff which looks really cool on your wall in the first place, I would advise the stuff from United Cutlery. It's show off gear, but their blades actually hold up pretty well when used. You probably look a bit dorky if you take it on a camping trip though.

If you're looking for a folding option, Fox and Emerson both make good knives, but they are expensive.

Cold Steel makes a relatively affordable fixed-blade option, but it's BIG. Fox and Emerson also make a fixed-blade options, but they are very expensive.

For a general use, fixed-blade option, I'd recommend something like the Mora Companion in stainless. It's boring next to any karambit or even your BG knife, but it will do the job of opening boxes and most routine cutting chores. For a folder, you simply cannot go wrong with a Victorinox.

I hope I didn't seem too condescending (that's where I talk down to you) in my first comment. Please feel free to ignore any smart-ass comments I may make and welcome to the club!

Edit: Karambits are simply not my style. I'm sure there are some other folks on /r/knifeclub that can offer more options than I on that subject.

u/kycolonel · 1 pointr/KitchenConfidential

I just picked up one of these little beauties. I wear it on my belt at work (butcher) when I need a quick blade and don't want to go into my pockets. May suit your needs, super comfortable to use and clean.

Edit: Although i'd bet your able to sharpen a knife or know someone who will, this little bastard was by far the sharpest knife out of the box I have ever bought.

So you seem pretty knowledgeable, and I trust your opinion. I’ve narrowed it down to 6 I’m choosing between, with some definitely more likely than others. Three are folders , and three are fixed . While I no longer trust MTech for folders, their blade kept decently well, and there’s not a lot of room for screws loosening on fixed blades. I also know Elk Ridge was never mentioned in the tread, but I’ve owned one fixed and one folder from them and they were both great knives, I have faith in the brand
