As many people know I collect survival and tactical knives as well as antiques
But I do have my favorites for when I go into the bush
I keep 3 tactical survival kits ready at all times..
1 for a grab and go
1 for my Jeep
1 for a long term SHTF kit
These are my 3 favorite knives for those kits
1. Buck Hoodlum
There has been some negative press on this knife lately but my personal experience has been nothing short of amazing.. Efficient, light, strong...
1. Becker BK9
Heavier than the Hoodlum with more chopping power.. I've used this extensively, as all 3 knives,and found this to be an excellent survival choice
3. OKC Marine Raider Bowie
The largest and heaviest of the 3
I prefer a bowie blade so this is perhaps my favorite knife
As for a K-Bar, Marine knife
I love them being a Marine and all but find they are somewhat limited in a survival situation as a larger knife gives you more control and many more
I would avoid any knife that has the serrated blade (Except on the back of the blade if you prefer) as you will find when doing fine work it limits
carving ability actually making it almost impossible
The serrations are to assist in cutting.. Just keep your knife sharp.
Good luck and have fun
