This is the knife I take backpacking, I guess it could be a survival knife but I mostly cook with it... I really like that it is orange so it is easy to find when I drop it.

u/MemorableCactus · 5 pointsr/knifeclub

I don't like to bring expensive knives out into the woods (because I'll lose them), so my suggestions would be:

Mora Companion. Bright, reliable, cheap. It's the bog-standard backpacking blade.

Mora Companion Heavy Duty. Same as above, but heavy duty.

Boker Real Steel Bushcraft II. Good size for a small knife, D2, Scandi grind. I own it, I like it.

Specifically this mora.

It's got a 4.1 inch blade vice the shorter 3.6 inch ones.

It's got a .125 blade vice the slimmer .1 inch ones.

It's carbon steel vice the stainless steel ones.

The Mora is perfect for backpacking. In my opinion, there's really no need for anything burlier other than the cool factor. Not sure which Mora you have, but the heavy duty Morakniv is insanely tough, I baton firewood with it every single chance I get and it's still stupid sharp. Because it's so cheap, I have no trepidation about possibly ruining it so I end up using it way more than my expensive knives.

u/ThirstyOne · 2 pointsr/Bushcraft

High-Vis version of this kit.

I'm not a fan of the Knife+Ferrocerium rod combos. The Mora Survival one specifically is more expensive than the counterparts purchased separately. I prefer purpose built strikers because trying to exercise mechanical force using something other than the business end of something sharp and pointy sounds like a recipe for injury. Plus, if you lose your knife you're fucked because now you don't have a striker.

Get some:

Here are some recommendations. If you are doing batoning and splitting, I would recommend something with a thick spine (and learning how to do it correctly). I wouldn't open cans with my knife because it's a poor tool choice for that and there are plenty of dirt cheap can openers.

Here are a few options:

KA Bar Becker companion in 1095 steel

Ontario Rat 3 in 1095

Morakniv Companion Heavy Duty carbon blade

cheap US army can openers so you don't damage your knife or hands opening cans


These are some good high carbon blades in a variety of prices. I do recommend buying one you can feel to get a good idea if the grip is right, but this should give you some variety of makes and what they offer. These are all black anodized coatings which will help keep rust away. My preference is for a knife in the 7 inch length range for chopping, no serrations (pain to upkeep and don't cut, they rip) and a neutral finish because black knives are hard to find if you drop it in the dark. NEVER buy a knife that isn't full tang.

Go out and get a feel for handles, blade shapes and lengths and try what you can borrow before making a decision.

u/youAreAllRetards · 2 pointsr/Survival

Just get a practical 4" knife, like a blaze-orange Morakniv Companion, $15 on Amazon. Beat the living shit out of it batoning wood, who cares.

Give your wife the impression that you can kill snakes ... carve a pointy stick really fast.

Can't go wrong with the Companion. It's a great bang-for-buck knife. It won't hurt the bank too much to buy a few spares!

u/Silverlight42 · 1 pointr/knives

That may look like a knife....

I wouldn't call it one.

Return it, don't buy anything else.

Think about why you really want the knife you're getting and what the goals are for having it. You don't necessarily "need" a reason, but it might help you pick one.

The one you linked isn't something i'd use. There are better things out there.

if you're just looking for a good knife in a sheath that you can pull out of it... well

can't go wrong with mora

NOTE Carbon steel requires a little more care than stainless

I'm not sure what led you to think you need a ring to take the knife out properly, if you could expand on that I might be more helpful.

If you just want something scary "tactical" or for "defense", I might have words but you might not like it.

Hear hear. My brain seems to have only a three item limit of things it can consistently keep track of, and those slots are occupied by my wallet, my phone, and my keys. Every time I've tried to add a knife to the mix, it's lost or seized by the TSA within a couple of months. An inexpensive knife like the Ozark trail gets the job done, and doesn't hurt so much when it disappears. I also like these knives:

Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara2 ($20):

Mora fixed blade knife ($20):

Maxam Sailors Multi-Tool ($15):

I love my orange companion - great pick!
