No matter how prepared you are, it’s always good to know how to use your resources in the most effective ways possible.
By familiarizing yourself with some simple tips and techniques, you can make your already very useful knife even more beneficial to you in crucial situations. First thing’s first- Get yourself acquainted with what survival knives are all about.
Now that you know what you’re working with, here are the top ten tips and uses of survival knives. Using your knife to cut down materials to create a shelter will keep you out of the elements. Rope is invaluable in a survival situation, and having a knife that aids in you in making your own would make your survival all the simpler. Knowing how to use your reflective surface to signal your distress could be your way to safety. You have lots of options out there when choosing a knife, and some people would have you think the flashiest, most expensive knife is the way to go.
If you know what to look for in a survival knife, you can find one that’ll serve you for years in survival scenarios.
Some folding knives are labelled as “survival knives.” Even if their packaging promises that these knives are the “ultimate” in survival, should you choose these over a non-folding knife?
This isn’t to say a folding knife doesn’t make a great second survival knife or an everyday carry knife (in fact, they’re perfect for everyday carrying).
How comfortable are you using a larger knife for delicate work (such as screw driving with a large tip)? Some people think it would be cool to have some sort of fancy tip on their survival knife, like a hook or curve.
The choice of getting a serrated blade or not is up to you, but never get a knife that’s entirely serrated. Serrated: Better for sawing and cutting through fibrous materials, but require a special sharpener. You have the choice between a blade with one edge (where one edge is sharp and one is blunt) and a dual-edge blade (where both edges are sharp). For your survival knife, you’ll want to choose a knife where only one edge is sharp and the spine is flat. Finally, this is completely up to you, but many people prefer to have survival knives they can easily sheath.

If you’re looking for a knife that can perform in just about any situation, whether surviving in the wilderness or in the backyard, the Cold Steel SRK survival knife might be the all-around knife for you. We’ll look this knife from just about every angle and talk about who this knife is for and who should look for a different blade. And before we’re all done, we’ll compare the Cold Steel SRK to a few other popular survival and tactical knives from Gerber, SOG and Schrade. So when my SRK landed… I carefully took it out of the box and was immediately impressed by the elegant simplicity of its design, its solid, yet extremely comfortable feel in my hand and the sharpness of the blade. As you might conclude, I’ve been a lot more careful with this knife since then… and you should be careful, too… this is one sharp knife out of the box!!!
Here is a collection of great knives from SOG, Gerber, Schrade compared to the Cold Steel SRK (which is the 6th knife from the left)… so we have the SOG Seal Pup, the Bear Grylls Survival Knife, the Gerber Prodigy, the Gerber LMF II ASEK, the SOG Force, the Cold Steel SRK, the Schrade Extreme Survival Knife (SCHF3) and the SOG Seal Team Elite.
The blade of the Cold Steel SRK is full tang construction which means the handle and blade steel are one solid piece of metal from tip to butt and is the strongest blade handle construction technique. The SRK steel is made of Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel… which is regarded as a very nice steel for a general, all-purpose knife like the SRK because of the steel’s toughness and edge-holding ability. AUS 8A has middle-of-the-road hardness which makes it strong for the rigors of survival and rescue while being resistant to chipping and fracturing. To add to the the corrosion resistance of this knife, Cold Steel coated this knife in what they call Black Tuff-Ex…. The Cold Steel’s choice in point design is a nice solution for a knife designed for rescue and survival situations requiring point strength, piercing ability and acute cutting. Oh, one last thing about the point… Knives with clip points are often easier to put back in their sheaths because of the reduced size and sharper angle of a clip point. So this steel thickness is pretty beefy, although not the thickest that we’ve seen in this class of survival knives. So… Just for fun, I’m gonna call it Grip-Ex because it’s extra grippy and honestly the grippiest handle of any of the survival knives that we’ve reviewed to date.
On the sides of the handle we have this raised dimple pattern of rubberized nodules that provide great grip in all directions and channel water in wet conditions. On the top and bottom we have rubberized raised lateral grooves that are especially designed to help prevent your hand from sliding forward onto the blade and prevent the knife from sliding out of your hand. At the front of the handle toward the blade we have a nice sized quillon (pronounced “KEY – OWN”), which is designed to prevent your fingers from sliding forward onto the blade and cutting edge. The back of the handle is about straight and the bottom has almost imperceptible cutouts to add to the ergonomics of this fine, yet very simple handle.
Hands of all sizes should find this handle very comfortable even when being use for extended periods.
This tapered end helps keeps the knife in your hand also makes it pretty easy to keep this knife from flying away when chopping. About a half inch from the butt of the knife there is this lanyard hole formed from a snappy, brass-looking grommet that goes the whole way through the handle to the other side. The sheath seems to be made of a very rigid, durable, precision-molded polymer that appears to be two pieces held firmly together with 12 solid metal grommets strategically placed at major stress points around the sheath. The knife locks in the sheath through a simple friction lock that does hold the knife securely in the sheath.
However, in our tests, this knife stayed securely in the sheath without the use of the handle strap.
The Cold Steel SRK sheath can be set up for left or right hand carry through this simple, durable and removable belt strap system. This strap system is easily removed and repositioned by removing these two standard cross head screws. It’s got this nice Velcro and snap, system that allows you to attach the sheath to just about any belt without removing it. A leg lanyard or strap can easily be added to keep this sheath tight against your leg using either the bottom grommet holes or one of the long strap cutouts.
We beat this knife up pretty good and even threw it (which always beats up a knife)… but the edge remained sharp and the knife showed surprisingly little wear.
Owners comment on this knife’s ability to take serious punishment and perform a variety of utility tasks well and generally rate this knife at over 4 out of 5 stars. We found a few comments about issues with the sheath and mentions about it not having a butt end pommel.
Owners usually rave about the toughness of the steel, edge holding, the versatile sheath and its value for the money.
We rate the Cold Steel SRK at 4.5 out of 5 stars for its versatility as a utility survival, tactical and rescue knife. We took off a half of a star because, for a rescue knife, it would have been nice for this knife to have a butt-end pommel… and for tactical and military use, we think Cold Steel could have pretty easily made this sheath a lot closer to MOLLE compatible. But if you want a more tactical or survival knife that comes with a MOLLE compatible sheath, take a look at my reviews of the SOG Seal Team Elite, the Gerber LMF II, Gerber LHR or the SOG Seal Pup.


If you want a kick-butt, all-around utility, fixed-blade knife that is built to last, and an online price of around $79 sounds good to you, we highly recommend the Cold Steel SRK Survival and Rescue Knife. Hi Daniel – The Cold Steel would definitely be the one to choose if bushcrafting is a priority.
I would however recommend the new Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro over the Original… if you can get one in Argentina. El SRk es un excelente producto costo beneficio, el Falkniven es un cuchillo que se cuece aparte, pero hay que asumir el costo, y al final de cuentas para lo que yo lo necesito…, me da el mismo servicio. Well I’m pretty jazzed to get this review of the NEW Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate PRO Survival Knife out to you after a few weeks of research, use and testing. Now the big, huge difference between these knives is the full tang construction of the Ultimate PRO knife vs. Full tang construction is regarded by most experts as the strongest, most durable way to make a knife. The Ultimate PRO has a drop point blade… which simply means that the spine side of the blade curves down until it meets the tip of the blade. Drop point blades are common for survival and general purpose utility knifes because they make for a strong tip and tough knife across the entire surface of the blade. Serrations are great for cutting things like rope… and extending the usefulness of your knife long after the fine edge is quite dull.
But a serrated edge can get in the way of many bushcraft tasks and make fine slicing, cutting or skinning difficult. My knife came quite sharp enough out of the box to shave hair off of the back of my hand and slice a long thin piece of plastic off of a ball point pen body… similar to the performance of a razor blade.
In my testing I was surprised at how well this edge held up while performing many tasks and after some knife throwing and a bunch of drops on rocks and frozen soil. On the spine side there is a notched out, coating-free striker area for use as the fire steel striker. But this choil’s true purpose is to allow the blade to be sharpened all the way to the end of the edge without interference of the handle or hand guard. The Ultimate PRO Knife comes with a newly designed emergency whistle that seems more durable than the previous one is quite loud and comes attached to the knife with it’s integrated lanyard. I can confidently say… you should not have any issues with THIS pommel or tang even in hard-use situations. The handle is made up of the knife tang and what seem to be two rugged polymer slabs that are secured to the knife using these 4 star or torque bolts and two permanent metal insets that are inside the two lashing holes at the top of the grip. Most of the polymer handle is covered over with what feels like the same, rubberized grippy material that’s used on just about every other knife and tool in this line. The only noticeable difference between this knife and the original version is the weight of the knife… which doesn’t feel heavy, but actually makes the knife feel a bit more substantial.
The knife balances well with the center of gravity in the area of the the forefinger handle cutout. Now in addition to the lanyard hole, we have two additional holes on the hand guard that go through the handle slabs and tang that are strategically placed to help you lash this knife onto a pole to make a spear. The lashing holes also serve another important task as part of the friction lock system that holds the knife in its sheath. And like the previous version of this knife, we have a handle strap with a Velcro-like closure system to keep the knife tight against the sheath when not in use. The sheath is designed for left or right-hand carry and has a hole in the bottom of the knife compartment to allow water to drain through if you go for a swim or end up out in a storm with this knife. On the back of the ballistic nylon upper part of this sheath there is a nylon vertical belt loop that should work well with belts up to 2 inches wide.
Next, let’s look at the carbide bladed pull-through sharpener, which is a better field sharpening solution than the diamond stone sharpener that is on the Original Ultimate Knife sheath… simply because sharpening your knife with this sharpener is easy for anyone, regardless of skill level. The cool thing about this pull sharpener, is that it’s designed to perfectly sharpen the entire fine edge of this knife because of the spacing the choil provides between the hand guard and the edge. For some tips on using the sharpener for your knife, and a full demonstration, check out my full review on YouTube by searching, “Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Knife Review”.
Last but not least, on the front of this sheath you will find a cleverly stored ferro rod, which is positioned right side up… instead of upside down (like on the Original version). This change alone should about ensure that your ferro rod doesn’t accidentally fall out of the sheath and get lost in the wilderness, which COULD happen in the previous version of this sheath. The ferrocerium used in this rod seems to be pretty high quality, so starting a fire with it was really easy. WE TOOK OFF A FULL STAR because to make all of these upgrades, the street price of the knife went from sub $40 US up to around $70 US. And honestly, in the competitive category for survival knives… a 4 out of 5 star rating is pretty darn good.
SO if you like your current Bear Grylls Utimate Survival Knife… You’re gonna LOVE the NEW Ultimate PRO!!! With its steel upgrade, full tang construction and all the goodies that come with it… this knife is a great choice for those who are ready to upgrade from the Original Bear Grylls Survival Knife. Do a review on the bear grylls parang it’s confusing that they have new and old parangs and some are recalled some are not and if its worth getting for the price. The new knife off gerber is $105.00 US you said it would be realeased of gerber for $70.00 US is their something that brought the price up? Let’s just say if a person was to choose between Gerber LMF II & this knife, which knife would you prefer?
I can’t find it in Vancouver, I can only find the other Gerber survival knives, anyone can tell me where to get it? As you commented re, I was disappointed that Gerber removed the molle loops from the sheath for this knife. My bottom line: I DO recommend this knife so long as the buyer is aware of its cosmetic issues and the lack of molles.
Can you please elaborate bacause I think I’m lost with your explaination on why you removed a full star on its rating.
And my comment on the color and design of the handle, I think the reason why they made it to have such bright colors as orange was because in a survival situation (unless you’re in combat and behind enemy lines) you want to be seen right? If you love Crocodile Dundee, want a serious knife that inspires confidence, looks great on your belt, in your hand and in a show case… and has the day job of performing just about any task you could expect from a knife, axe or machete, we’re pretty sure you’ll absolutely love the SOG Creed.
The SOG Creed is a large, well-crafted, high performance and classy knife that has some obvious design influences borrowed from the classic Jim Bowie knives of the 1830s and the more modern versions manufactured in the past 180 years. While the original “Bowie” knife was known as a fighting knife, the SOG Creed’s big belly design and stout front make it useful as a camp, survival and extreme hunting knife.
This knife is a beast and I can’t even imagine the force it would take to break this blade -plus, in a pinch you could flip this blade around and use the spine as a hammer. The SOG Creed is made out of AUS 8 stainless steel and enjoys SOG’s unique cryogenic heat treatment that is said to increase overall steel strength and edge retention. I have prior experience with SOG’s AUS 8 steel, and in all of my testing it’s quality, heat treatment and middle-of-the-road hardness seems to make it a good choice for all-around use and abuse, corrosion resistance and for retaining an edge. Full tang is the strongest knife construction technique and is well suited for a rugged knife like the Creed. Although drop point blades are typically regarded as having stronger points and being a more versatile blade… the SOG Creed enjoys a straight clip which is inherently stronger and is well suited for a wider array of survival, camping and hunting tasks. Because of the mass and the length of the SOG Creed, it was a joy to use for batoning – in this case, I simply split some wood with it.
The handle has a total length of about 4 inches (or 10.2 centimeters) and should be suitable for all but the very largest of hands. On the bottom of the handle there are nice finger cut-outs to improve grip and comfort and between the blade and the hilt (which is the entire handle section of the knife)   there is a VERY nice, stout and solid stainless steel crossguard which is designed to protect the hand in a fight and also keep your hand from sliding onto the blade. On the butt end of the handle, you’ll see a solid, stainless steel pommel that matches the crossguard in ruggedness and style. And for more style points, the pommel is fastened onto the knife tang using a cool screw fastener that has the look of a bullet primer.


The Creed goes into its sheath only one way… and is held in place with a leather strap and snap.
This leaves a bit of play at the top of the sheath for the thinner, 1 inch wide blade steel near the handle, to shift around a bit when you carry it, which makes it possible for the knife to come out of the sheath even when the leather handle strap is secured. There is no question at all… Owners who pull the trigger on this knife have no regrets. We rate the SOG Creed knife at 4.5 out of 5 stars as a serious, back-county knife for its  thoughtful design, materials, fit and finish, beauty and its overall usefulness and tough build.
The only knock we have on this knife package has to do with the handle end of the knife shifting around in the sheath.  This makes it possible for the knife to come out of the sheath even when the leather handle strap is secured. Even though it’s not probable that your knife is going to come out of this sheath in the back country, due to it’s weight, it is possible. But honestly, the biggest problem you are going to have with this knife is actually bringing yourself to use it…it’s designed for hard use, yet it has the beauty and mystique of a collectible.
Make no mistake, the SOG Creed is a serious, large and formidable all-purpose knife knife for camping, fishing,  backpacking, extreme survival and hunting, batoning, self-defense and for those who want to impress their friends and scare away their enemies.
If you want a smaller, less expensive, but very capable smaller survival knife with a fine edge, check out my reviews of the Schrade Extreme Survival Knife and the SOG Force.
If you want a survival knife more suitable for tactical and combat situations, check out my reviews of the Gerber LMF II and Prodigy. If you’d like a really nice hunting knife that is quite capable for survival duties, check out the Gerber Myth Fixed Blade Pro.
If you are all about “BIG” and you want a even larger blade designed for extreme survival, check out my review of the Buck Hoodlum. David says he would recommend the Leatherman Wave multitool as a great additional piece of gear to the SOG Creed for camping. If you can take just one item into the wilderness, make it a good quality fixed blade knife. Learning the skills to use your knife for tinder gathering and fire starting could be the key to your survival. Since your knife will be used for much more than cutting, and since you want a knife that will last for a long, long time, it doesn’t make sense to sacrifice durability by not getting a full tang knife. Although you can’t see the knife steel in the handle of the SRK, I have verified that the knife is full tang with Cold Steel.
The Cold Steel SRK has a fine edge meaning no serrations – for the full length of the edge.
AUS 8A is fairly easy to sharpen, has  very nice edge retention and can be sharpened to a VERY sharp edge. I recommend simply wiping your knife down occasionally with a little bit of mineral oil on a soft rag paying particular attention to wiping down the edge. A clip point has the spine side of the blade “clipped” off to form a tip that is sharper and more suitable for piercing and tasks like skinning or carving that require more blade point accuracy. However, the belt carry strap system can easily be removed and through some creativity and the addition of a strap or two could be attached to a MOLLE vest or pack. Because of the nearly straight handle, the center of gravity being slightly more toward the tip and the clip point blade, this knife threw really well compared to most of the other knives we have dared to toss at our target. Owners seem to run the gamut from military, campers, hunters, survival dudes, weekend warriors and women who just wanted a tough knife that was comfortable to hold and could perform a wide range of household tasks. That is why i wonder if you have any intrest to make a review on the fallkniven a1 and the a2.
I got it for about $40 at a gun show, and it’s been my go to hunting knife since then.
Please Consider Partnering with Us to Keep Our FAMILY FRIENDLY Videos (and Website Content) Coming YOUR Way. So today I’ll dig in and look at this knife from just about every angle and see if this knife is garbage, good or anywhere close to great. This knife’s choil has enough space for my forefinger to wrap around for better leverage and control in fine cutting and slicing. These holes perfectly align with 4 raised bumps (two on each side) toward the top of sheath that work together to firmly lock the knife in the sheath when it’s not in use. It’s a great choice for camping, backpacking, hiking, bug-out bags, emergency kits, responsible scouts, for bushcraft or as very nice general utility knife around the home or shop to use every day or have handy just in case. I am wondering if it is possible to remove the plastic knife handle off the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro Survival knife without breaking it and leave it bare metal, (no pun inteneded but still funny) so i can wrap paracord around the handle and still put the plastic handle back on after taking the paracord off, without having to get another knife. All your videos have helped me and my little brother become more educated in survival techniques. The gerber strong-arm is made out of 420hc stainless steel and i hear that it does no have good edge retention,The gerber ultimate pro survival knife has 9cr19mov stainless steel and according to your review it performed very well.
Clip point blades have the spine side of the blade “clipped” off and form a tip that is more suitable for piercing, picking and fine work than many drop point blades. And once I cleaned all the crud and sap off… I was pleasantly surprised at how it looked like I barely touched it. It’s basically a rubberized, over-molded and very grippy material that has a raised cross hatch pattern on the sides and a lateral pattern on the top and bottom to help you hold on in changing weather conditions.
They serve no functional purpose as far as I can tell but do add to the collector quality of this blade. I’m pretty sure if you loose your SOG Creed in the woods, you are going to be very sad. Many comment on the great comfort of the handle and balance of the knife, the excellent steel and this knife’s ability to hold a sharp edge. So my way of connecting was to gift him with a Ka-bar US Marine Fighting Knife which after much comparison with other survival type knives it is what I choose.
In a survival situation, a flat spine can be used as a strike for a fire-starting ferro-rod. This Exclusive Lifetime warranty exists in addition to all other stated warranties on Berkey Systems. Fit and finish, steel choice, excellent sheath design, grip and the fact that this knife can be had for around $79 online.
If I want a knife with a hammer for a butt I have my Catteragus Quartermaster knife, but the SRK feels perfect in my hand and has replaced that knife in the woods.
Does this means that this knife cannot compare or can not be on par with these ‘heavy-hitters’? Getting a weird tip may sound useful in the store, but you’ll regret the decision in a survival scenario. It’s also great for a thumb rest son you can apply more pressure to your blade (or for more control during carving, such as making triggers and traps). We will process the claim and, if it’s approved, ship the replacement parts to you within one business day.
My point of this comment is that, in all of my camping & backpacking experience over the years, I have continually come back to the SRK for my traveling companion.
I have heard about the Gerber Bear Grylls Paracod Fixed Blade Knife, but i want to know about this one, thank you in advance and have a great day.
It is a perfectly adequate knife to have in your pack or bug-out bag when heading into the wilderness.
Though it is a heavier knife than some, I appreciate the weight & heft for some of the fire prep tasks due to its weighty cutting ability. Also, removing the handle slabs with eliminate your ability to use the knife sheath since the handles hold the knife in the sheath via friction.
Grylls initials, I made short work of the orange with some Krylon ultra-flat back camo paint intended for plastyic surfaces.
