Here is a survival knife...at least good enough to cut off your arm if your get stuck..
No sheath to lose. Small and light. Got it in the firewood box in the back of the Element. Kewl, retro, Upper Michigan woodsy flava!

That's a pretty opinionated statement. Not to be argumentative, because we all have our likes and dislikes, but can you name a single thing a Cold Steel knife can do that a Busse can't do better? (aside from costing less) I'd say with their Infi, Busse is the North American company to beat... I'm not saying you have to use your knife as a prybar to see if it's decent, but torture tests are pretty confidence inspiring when you're discussing survival. You've said how pleased the guys in the sandbox are with their SOGs. Do you know one of them who wouldn't trade it for a Busse if given the chance?:
Very impressed with the Razel SS7 by CRKT.
your knife tests site is a little misleading. I'm no knife/blade/steel expert far from it. However the test of the coldsteel tanto hammered into a piece of angle iron, which broke the blade, this test was not done to the busse. looks like the knifetest site is a busse ad site.
This is pretty much the best there is. I carry mine in a ankle sheath.
It's not because you don't see something that it doesn't exist.
I saw a lot of videos showing a Busse cutting through steel on this site. Here're some.
Part 9 and 10.
OK, it's not angle iron but I think that this guy uses what's available around.
That's what I carry whenever I'm "out" camping, hiking, hunting etc. I fucking LOVE that knife. Well made, simple, ergonomic, useful, and beautiful to boot! It's definitely my #1 knife out of the many I've owned.
I have a $15 Mora Knife. Absolutely Great. Blade holds and edge and is easy to sharpen, Only bad part is it rusts.
The best survival knife is the one you have with you when you need it.
So just carry a decent pocket knife.
Same for pistols. The latest, greatest Gigando Max Magnum won't do you a bit of good if it spends it's time in a drawer 'cause it weighs 5 lbs. and it's too big to conceal.
A small pocket pistol may not be your first choice, but it sure beats not having anything at all.
Speedo66 has a good point. Spyderco Endura and a Kahr P9. Works for me.
This thread is almost dead.
SOG Seal Pup.
There, Now it's dead.
On bike and in truck when going outback:
Estwing 12" hatchet
I'd really like to try a khurkuri from India but I have a had time trusting my money going there and getting a good product. Quality control is very hit and miss.
you can't just say it's dead and have it be dead. not how it works.
and these guys look honest enough: http://www.khukuriblades.com/
coldsteel sells a khurkuri, their design and one that is certified by a khurkri assoc.
Knives, here's knives.
And a nice price you whackaloons.
This and a calvary sword and fuck it...or well maybe I am died?
Wrong knife, didn't survive.
(Maybe it was that extra day in Feb or the 2 feet of snow we just got here in N. Wisconsin)
At your age, so are you.
This thread will be alive as long as you are.
Hope it has a continued life.
