There are many very nice knives to choose from. I have several.
I own a Bowie I got from cheaper than dirt, s.s., full tang, very strong construction. Great for cutting just about anything you would need to cut,
including gutting animals/fish, and good for chopping small brush. I would highly recommend this one to anybody for survival purposes.
I have a cheap survival type knife, s.s. hollow end that holds survival items, though it's attractive looking &functional, it may break if you use it
for chopping or prying. I've used it for camping a few times.
Another I have is a massive one...made my united cutlery, designed by Gil Hibben. 18 inches total, full tang, it's a genuine Rambo III reproduction.
Beautiful piece, I have zero doubts this one would have any trouble performing if I called upon it, excellent construction, you can tell it's just a
well built bowie knife. The knives in Rambo 1&2 are attractive, but again, not full tang.
I would definately get something big enough to defend yourself with, full tang a must, something you could chop/cut small brush with.
I love knives, and have owned many over the years, can't go wrong with a good knife You don't have to reload them.
Ka-bar makes some nice ones, as does Winchester, and Gerber. Not a bad idea to have a good sized, durable bowie, and then a small lock blade pocket
knife for back up/smaller jobs.
I've used machetes in the past as well, very cool, but most people want something more compact, and easier to carry.
