And if you're trusting your life with one of these knives, it's important to have the best. At Knife Depot, we have a huge selection of quality survival knives you can trust in any situation. We have everything from carbon steel serrated blades to durable handles with survival kits inside.

Michael T. from Chandler, AZ
Plastic handle well contoured, good mold but sounds hollow so may not be reliable under stress. Not well balance. Head-heavy 440 steel blade can only cut cake...you will need to sharpen before use, however the hard tanto tip would probably pierce sheet metal effortlessly. Plastic sheath functional but also cheap feeling. Great $20 knife for disposable gear. Cool tactical styling gets highest marks.

This is a well built knife. Just what we were looking for to make our survival packs complete. I am buying another one for my wife's pack also!!

Wonderful knife! Came sharp and well built. I have used it when I go camping and keep it on my quad when I ride. Very good at taking dead branches off a tree to make a fire!

Dave Y. from Phoenix, AZ
Very nice knife. A bit thinner than anticipated but flexible enough it shouldn't break during use. Very sharp and came with a sheath that held a fire starter. Nice surprise. Would recommend.

Pete C. from Fresno , CA
Only major concern is the thickness of the blade. I bought it to have as a companion during metal detecting in wooded areas so I won't be using for survival purposes. Honestly it's a nice looking knife, but for hard duty work I feel the blade will bend.

Alan K. from Los Angeles CA
Its an okay knife. Great for the price and a good starter knife, however it wasn't sharp out of the box. Not a big deal but my professional knife sharpener wasn't able to improve it too much. However durability and price for quality is definitely there.

It's everything I expected from the advert and more, well worth the 50 bucks.

Great knife by an American company. Balance, size and utility are first rate. Great overall quality. About the only issue is I wish it was of one piece construction.
