  • Knives to use for complete field processing animals in survival situations

    If you had to carry a minimum number of knives to completely process on the spot all small and large game, and birds/waterfowl in any of the 50 states in a wilderness survival situation, how many would that be and what make/models would you choose?
    Factor in any type of weather too, and that you are living out of your backpack. Durability, low maintenance and ability of a given knife to be used for several processing operations can be some of the important factors among others.

      That would be such a compromise I doubt a single knife would do any task very well.

        I have the Case 'Changer' but do not consider it one knife for this exercise.

              This is an easy one for me. Two knives

              > Morakniv Companion in stainless steel for the majority of the tasks

              > For detail work and fish, Rapala 6-inch fillet made by Marttinni of Finland

              You can get both for a total of about $40 from Amazon. They are very light and easy to sharpen.

                I agree with PigHunter; for meat processing the Mora and Rapala Filet are great choices, and knives I use myself frequently. Some big-game hunters might want something heavier, but if you're boning out meat in the field ... well, you're boning it out, and a blade's edge and flexibility are more important than sturdiness.
