    PS. Make sure you get the carbon steel version and not the stinless blade. Carbon is easier to sharpen, gets a lot sharper and can throw sparks for making fire.

    If you want something that is priceworthy, solid, and usable that will keep you alive in the bush, go for a mora. If you want something cool with a commando look and ninja sheeth I can't help you.
    Regarding the original post, what is really meant by "survival knife" and 4"? If you go out into the wilderness you could surely carry a much larger knife, so I am guessing that what we are talking about is daily use in a relatively urban environment. And then this is exactly what you want. It is cheap and durable, you can use it to cut wire, to dig with, to pry with, and to open cans. If you break it or chip the edge or whatever, so what? You just get a new one.

    But for real survival, out in the wilderness a smaller knife will only go so far.

    I try not to use the term "survival" that much, as it describes an ad hoc situation or a situation where I have lost control and need to fight a desperate struggle to stay alive. A better term is "self reliance" where you go out in the bush for extended periods of time with a minimum of tools to par with your skills and creativity to get by.
    This has been a hobby of mine for many years after I left the military. I used to bring an 8-10 inch Sami knife as my main tool, but learned that it was too cumbersome for some tasks and had a springy and brittle blade that could break. So I went down in blade length but up in blade thickness. I have been through houndreds of knives and have a sizeable collections of both expensive, cheap and self made knives where this cheap, unfashionable and simple Mora has proved to be the one I use most in the bush.

    One inch longer blade would be better for cutting larger pieces of wood, though. I'd agree on that.

    If you want something for chopping wood get a hatchet, (Gransfors Bruks are great) it's versatile weighs very little, the blade wont snap and it'll save your knife for the stuff you really need it for. Mora clippers are great for cheap and durable knives, I have several.

    I would choose a Böker Magnum Survival Knife, I don't own one (yet), but I do own a Böker folder made from the same type of steel and I've found its constrution/design to be of better quality/engineering than the CRKT, Victorynox and Buck knives I've owned, and at half the price too... This knife seems to be a survival knife in the true sense of the word (given its features) with a good design, the hilt retention clip also seems to be the same as is generaly used on Bundeswehr webbing pouches IMO.

    It has a 6 inch blade but maybe you can find a way around that Helamann...

    Price: €24,95/$31.99







    The Boker Plus Magnum Jungle King Knife is a well equipped survival knife with all steel construction. The hollow handle can be screwed together, and contains a small survival kit, including a compass. Additional accessories are stored inside the sturdy synthetic sheath: a small knife with catch hook, cap lifter, sharpner, folding catapult, signal mirror, and more. Everything you need in the great outdoors.

    •High performance 440 Stainless Steel blade with black coating
    •Hollow Steel handle that contains a small survival kit
    •Includes a sturdy synthetic sheath that also contains a small knife with catch hook, cap lifter, folding catapult, signal mirror, and more...
    •BLADE LENGTH: 17,1 cm/6.0"
    •OVERALL LENGTH: 28,6cm/11.0"
    •BLADE THICKNESS: 3,9mm
    •WEIGHT: 334g/0.75 lbs.
    •Imported (Made in Solingen, Germany)
    Source: http://www.uscav.com/productinfo.asp...=22157&tabid=1

    The web retailer (from which the above link was taken) has retail stores in Kentucky and Georgia so there shouldn't be too much logistics issues to get it to you in Austin...

    Here is the knife's description on the Böker site:

    If it is hollow, to store stuff in the handle, that means it has little or no tang, and the blade could snap off under any real force. I would advise not putting your life in the hands of 'Rambo' style knives. Get an altoids tin for all the other little bits and bobs survival kit.

    Sure, I didn't think about that so much, but what degree of tang would you need in a survival knife? Maybe a little for chopping off twigs from larger branches... A well constructed hollow hilt would be able to hold up to that IMO. Wouldn't tang be a factor to consider more in a larger blade for chopping such as a machete or sword?

    Yes, but I'd go for the carbon steel version. I hate stainless steel blades.
    Carbon steel is easier to sharpen, even if the edge has been damaged, it gets a lot sharper and with a piece of mineral with a hardness over 7 you can throw sparks of the backside of the blade to make fire.

    If you take care of your blade as you should with lifesaving equipment, staining and rust will be no problem.

    That price is where it should be for that knife. Other models are much cheaper:
