Survival Knives

There are many types of survival knives available that have hollow handles with emergency gear stored inside.

These knives usually have a compass built into the end and contain fish hooks, string and matches. Some people feel these knives are great survival tools. They are mistaken. Common catalog survival gear often has hollow-handled knives that break, leaving you stranded. If a knife’s handle is hollow that means the blade is not fixed.

Space blankets are found in all survival catalogs. These blankets are made of thin, reflective, insulating aluminum and polyester material. The overall size of a space blanket is important.
