its simple! a staff! (stick)
good for clubbing,defending,wrestling/manipulating an opponent,spearing(animals,fish,humans)
good as a tool.
a small,heavy stick can be sharpened down (hardwood) enough to use as a knife.
can be used as a splint,or a makeshift stretcher for an injured person,
firewood,shelter,cane/walking stick,lever/pry bar.
the list literally goes on and on!!!
plus the extra bonus is they are everywhere and there free!!!
bow and arrow,sling snare,trap,boobie trap,water depth measure,wind vain,compass,fire maker,
see what i mean!
ya a bid knife would be good too,but if i had to fight,id much rather be armed with a 6 foot staff,and a small club.
the knife wielding foe has to get pretty close to do harm,be it to a human,or an animal.
try to take down a wild boar with just a knife!
