New video review - Large Survival Knife Comparison

I did a relatively brief side by side comparison of four of my favorite large survival knives:

The Cold Steel SRK
The Fallkniven A1 (which I repeatedly called an F1, oops! lol)
The Cold Steel Recon Scout
The Ka Bar Heavy Bowie

  1. Hi all...

    A survival knife has a blade that is probably more important than any other in its need to be sharp. The last thing you want is to be stuck in the wilderness with a dull knife. By fully sharpening and polishing your survival knife, you can prepare for all kinds of rough situations. Thanks.

  2. Edge retention is important and so is ease of field sharpening. I find the A1 (and F1 and S1 for that matter) maintain an edge extremely well. I sometimes find the convex edge a little awkward to sharpen (inexperience) but I don't have to do it very often.
