Most people, who are enthusiastic about venturing into the wilderness or are just fond of the outdoor life in general, will not own and carry just one knife as they often will carry two, a hunting knife and a survival knife. The two, to the uninitiated, may same appear the same and although in some cases they may look similar, to the well informed or experienced outdoorsman, they have their differences and each may be used for totally different purposes.
Of course, having two knives instead of one may be useful but it will also cost you more. However, as either of these knives could save your life, many people do not consider the cost and opt for the best of both knives regardless of their price. However, if you are going to buy anything, it is always worth trying to get the best value for money and so some research into the different options of what is available to buy is always wise.
Many people may consider the most important feature of these knives is their weight whilst others may consider their strength as being the feature of most importance and others may consider their length as the most important feature. None of these people are either right or wrong, it is just their personal preferences and possibly the most important feature of either of these knives is that you are comfortable with them, have confidence in them and know each of their qualities.
Some knives, for instance, share the name Bear Grylls with the famous survival expert seen on TV and as he is, without doubt, very good in all kinds of outdoor situations, not everyone considers those knives to be the best but instead opt for a different brand. That isn’t to say that the Grylls knives are not good, as they are and are regularly featured every year on the best knives websites but, it just means that they may not suit everybody’s preferences.
The way forward, if you are considering taking up an outdoor life, is to buy two knives, look to get good value for money but at the same time, as your life could depend on them, ensure you get good ones, ones which you will be comfortable using and feel safe with having.
