Many people these days are looking at using survival knives for their everyday carry. They are durable, built to withstand the harshest situations, and practical for daily use in outdoor areas.
As a result, there are many tanto style survival knives for sale for you to choose from.
Features of a Survival Knife
Many chose a survival knife with a fixed blade for the most strength and durability. However, many people are choosing a folding knife as it’s easier to keep on hand in case of emergency.
The knife should be made from high-quality steel. If you’re opting for a fixed blade knife, go for a carbon steel, and make sure it’s coated for corrosion resistance. If you choose a folding knife, stainless steel is your metal, as it works better for a smaller blade and it has the corrosion and wear resistance necessary.
The knife should have a sharp point, and be capable of a variety of tasks, from gutting, to skinning, to self-defense. The knife should have a smooth blade. Semi-serrated takes up too much of the edge that is often needed.
Why Choose a Tanto Style Knife
A tanto style knife was designed for punching through armor, and the more modern designs have kept this, as well as adding modifications that give it greater versatility. One thing to watch out for, however: some designers are tapering the spine behind the tip, weakening it. You’ll want one that is thick, so you know you have a knife at full strength.
The modified tanto style knives are able to be used for more slicing and cutting tasks, which is essential in survival. At the same time, these modifications keep the tanto’s incredible puncturing and combat capabilities, perfect if you’re in a life or death situation.
