I spend a lot of time outdoors. They don’t call Louisiana “Sportsman’s Paradise” for nothing! We have some of the best hunting and fishing around. I personally love to fish and camp. And I never leave home without my pocket knife. But if I’m going camping or fishing, I’m sure to bring my survival knife. A folding pocket knife is great to always have for opening packages and little jobs like that. But if I’m out in the woods or at the fishing camp, I would rather have my survival knife.

Over the years I’ve owned and still own several different knives and I’m always keeping my eyes open for a knife to add to the collection. So after digging around online I’ve decided to make my own top 10 list of the best outdoor survival knives. So here we go….

1. Polaris 10-inch Hunting And Survival Knife Kit

You definitely get your moneys worth with this ultimate survival knife kit that includes integrated knife sharpener and multi tool! It has a full tang, Tanto-tipped / combination serrated blade made of high-carbon steel. And it has a dual-injected glass-filled nylon handle.

The knife looks and feels like a combat knife but it definitely can be used for both combat and survival.

  1. So many knives to choose from. Really helpful to get an idea of what kind of things to be on the lookout for in a survival knife. I’ll be sure to come back to this page when I’m ready to go an adventure so it’s going in my favourites! Thank you!!

  2. This is very informative. I would be interested to know your favourite knife. I am a Gerber fan because of my many years in the military and we use that brand a lot and I am comfortable with it.

    There are quite a few knives on here that I was unfamiliar with and you gave some great information about each. It really brought me back to my military days. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you Nate! And I’m glad that you enjoyed reading this post. I’m a Gerber fan as well and my favorite knife is that last one on my list; the Strongarm 420 High Carbon blade. Just an all around awesome knife!

  3. Great post about knives! I’m fond also of using knives not in combat or survival, but in the kitchen because I love to cook and cooking is my past time although I am not a chef or cook. Knives with the right sharpener go hand in hand and use knives in the right application. Wonder why you didn’t put links to Amazon for monetizing.
