Now when we talk about a survival knife, we’re not excluding the need for other knifes for various emergencies, animal, human, zombie. A couple of throwing knives, boot knife, leg sheath, the one you pull out when they think you’re empty.

A wilderness survival knife is a great tool for many reasons. Along with clearing plants, cutting cloth, and making kindling, it’s also great for opening cans, preparing food, and more. Contrary to popular belief, however, bigger is not always better. Ideally, your wilderness survival knife should be just as easy to pack as the rest of your survival gear. This means that it should be working size, lightweight, easily accessible, and, most importantly, easy to use.

Larger knives may look impressive, but you run a larger risk of hurting yourself with a bigger blade, especially in the event of an emergency.

What makes a good wilderness survival knife? A mark of good craftsmanship includes a strong blade that has what is referred to as a narrow tang. This means that, rather than simply attaching a blade to a handle, the blade tapers to a narrow point. The handle is then affixed to this narrow point, thus increasing its overall durability. Knives made the former way tend to break much easier. When you see a “survival knife” for sale with a hollow handle filled with a few cheap emergency items like matches and fish hooks, you know the tang only goes an inch into the handle, it will likely snap off in a zombie’s skull.

Of similar concern are knives with saw teeth on top. While this type of knife can be useful in clearing brush for a campsite or hunting blind, there is a serious risk that once plunged into a zombie skull you won’t be able to pull it out again or not in time for the next zombie rushing in.

The debate regarding smooth blades versus serrated blades is a varied one. Some prefer smooth blades due to the fact that they’re easy to sharpen. They’re also more versatile than serrated blades in that they can perform delicate work such as carving or cutting smaller objects.

In the long run, it all depends on what type of zombie the outbreak produces to do battle with your wilderness survival knife.
