To help you choose the best survival knife for camping and jaunts in the wilderness, we tested out dozens of top models, looking for products made from extremely high quality components, including stainless steel, that easily tuck away via folding design or a sheath. We preferred extremely sharp knifes that instantly cut through rope and other common outdoors obstacles. We also liked products that came with a wide variety of useful accessories, including sharpeners, fire starters and other tools. Long warranties, with a minimum of five years and a maximum of lifetime, were also preferred, as were attractive and compact designs.
The best product we tried was easily the Gerber Bear Grylls Folding Sheath Knife, which boasts a handy folding design, along with a military grade nylon sheath, and features an extremely sharp high carbon stainless steel blade, which excels at cutting through rope. The handle is made from textured rubber, maximizing grip, and the dual-sided thumbstud allows for single hand opening. This knife also comes with a lifetime warranty, which is the longest to be found on this list.
