Bear Grylls Survival Knife
When faced with any survival situation, the Bear Grylls Survival Knife is designed to meet your survival knife needs. Like any good survival knife, the Bear Grylls knife is multifunctional. It’s not just a pretty blade. The knife comes with the following features.
- Carbon Stainless Steel Drop Point Blade; it’s important to have a blade that keeps its edge. No one wants to spend any more time than they have to sharpening their knife. Carbon steel keeps its edge.
- Serrated Edge: In most any survival situation you will find you need to cut things. If you don’t have a knife with a serrated edge it can be almost impossible to cut things like tough vines or rope. The Bear Grylls Survival Knife has a ½ serrated blade.
- Full Tang Blade: It’s important to have a full tang blade (the blade runs the entire length of the handle). That is what gives your blade its strength and keeps it from snapping in half.
- Steel Pommel: The need to hammer things is common in survival situations. With a full tang blade and steel pommel you have a knife that allows you to hammer things at will.
- Diamond Sharpener: In the event that you do need to sharpen your Bear Grylls Survival Knife, a diamond sharpener is integrated into the nylon sheath.
- Contoured Rubber Grip: A good grip is important, and the contoured grip of the Bear Grylls knife is designed to give you a great grip as well as comfort.
- Fire Starter Equipment: The knife comes with a fire starter rod and a striker notch integrated into the military grade nylon sheath.
- Rescue Instructions: Your knife comes with land to air rescue instructions so you will know how to get attention and to direct air rescue to your location.
- Survival Guide: The Bear Grylls Knife also comes with a detailed pocket survival guide. Even trained experts sometimes forget things under the constant stress of a life and death survival situation. It’s important to have a tested, reliable survival guide to consult when your situation is beginning to get the better of you.
Fixed Blade or Folding
When it comes to your choice of knives, there is no wrong choice here. While fixed blade knives can have longer actual blades, the Bear Grylls Survival Knife has a modest 4 ½ inch blade. That length can easily be replicated in a folding knife. It’s a matter of preference.
Some people do not want to bother with having to open their knife before using. They prefer to be able to just quickly draw it out of the sheath for use and this may be a good thing in a life and death survival situation.
The ability to quickly draw and open a folding knife is a skill that must be learned and practiced; even with the new assisted opening knives. Having a folding knife does not mean you have to sacrifice the ½ serrated feature of the Grylls Survival Knife. You can still get a half serrated blade on a folding knife.
Reliability of the Knife
When looking for a survival knife it’s important to find a knife that is reliable. The last thing you want to have to stress about is whether your knife is going to break or not, and at the worst possible moment.
Fortunately you can rely on the construction and materials that have gone into the Bear Grylls Survival Knife. This knife actually has features you need, like a serrated edge for cutting ropes and vines, carbon steel for maintaining an edge, a full tang blade for strength, and a steel pommel for hammering. This is one reliable knife.
