Before we talk about Survival knives, its always better to have a multiple set of tools instead of just 1 survival knife.

Lets talk about the to 10 best fixed blade survival knives:

Schrade SCHF36 – 

This is an award winning knife.  This knife comes with a ballistic nylon sheath.  Inside the sheath there are some sharpening stones and a magnesium fire starter.  There is a snap fastener which makes it really easy to take the knife out.  1095 Steel.  Blade length 5.05 Inches.  Great knife if you are just starting out and will only run you about $29 dollars.  Great knife for fine carving tasks or chopping tasks.

Condor Bushlore w/Wooden Handles

This will run you around 35 dollars for the wooden handle variant but also a mycarta handle variant.  I really like micarta handles because when it gets wet in the woods, its easy to grip.  This knife is full tang.

Morakniv Bushcraft Carbon Black

One knife that is not full tang is the Mora Bushcraft Black.  It has a high carbon steel.  Blade length is 4.3 inches.  The blade handle is rubberized.  It has a Scandinavian grind.  Great for creating sparks with a fire stick.  Although I used a leather sheath for mine, I like the plastic sheath that it comes with.   It can clip to you belt or to your pocket.

a-Bar Becker BK2 

If you want a knife that is just a beast, just a tank of a knife, this is not as cheap as the other knives we have talked about.  This knife comes with 1095 steel.  Full Tang. 5 inch blade.  I wrapped it with tennis racket material.  I didn’t like the sheath that it came with.

Cold Steel SRK

Survival Rescue Knife. Stainless Steel.  Full Tang. The length of the blade is 6 inches long.  I really like the handle material.  Very grippy handle.  Comes with Kydex Sheath.

Ontario Blackbird SK-5

This is one of my favorite knives.  It uses 154 CMSteel, has a 5 inch blade, is full flat grind, full tang, and micarta handle.  This might not look like an elegant knife but the genius of this, is in the simplicity of the design.

TOPS Brothers of Bushcraft 

It has 1095 high carbon steel.  The blade length is 4.5 inches long.  Full tang.  micarta handle.  Has a modified Scandinavian grind.  It has a divot at the base of the tang to help with firestarting. The sheath rotates 360 degrees which adds to the versitility of the this knife


This is another one of my top 3 knives.  6 inch blade length.  10.95 steel.  Great feel to it.  Very lightweight.

Fallkniven F1

This is a Swedish knife.  Its a knife that is used by fighter pilots.  It allows them to survive out in the woods.  Blade length of 3.8 inches long.  If that is too short there is a larger version.  I like the sheath that comes with it.  It has a button fastener.  Full tang.   Fiji 10 laminate steel.  Great lightweight knife if you’re going out on a day hike.

Blackheart Gunner-12 

The last knife is more high priced.

This knife is the Blackheart Gunner 12.  This guy makes them all by hand and they take about 2 weeks to make.
