1. A Bushcraft Woodcarver
Swedish woodcarving blades have largely been popularized by the living legend of the north woods, Mors Kochanski, and his acolytes. In recent years, they have become one of the most popular wilderness blades on the market. They are rugged, easy to sharpen and dirt cheap. The entry level on these knives is around $12-15. You could buy ten of these for the price of one name-brand survival knife. "Why a wood carver?" you may ask. Simple. Most of the tasks in survival revolve around wood working. From cutting the sticks to make traps and other gear, to carving a friction fire set, you'll need a dependable wood cutter that is easy to field sharpen, and this is the best one for the price.
