My opinion, based on experiences I have had as a police officer, while hunting and while camping, is this. The best survival knives are the survival knives you trust with your life AND that you are comfortable using. I use this analogy A .22 pistol is much more effective in the hands of someone that knows how to use it, than a 30-06 rifle is in the hands of someone that doesn't know how to load the bullets or is afraid of it.
The blades of cooking knives are sometimes pliable and longer. They are not as strong and sturdy as utility knives. The blades of cooking knives are thinner to easily slice meat and other food stuff.
Cooking or Kitchen knives are also utility knives but they are specifically designed for the kitchen. There are many sub-types of cooking knives such as boning, fillet, chefs, cleaver, bread, and ham slicer. There are other small knives that can be used for the kitchen but these are the most commonly used varieties.
Precision cutting knives or commonly known as thin razor knives have very small blades and very thin handles. In fact, some models are only pencil-sized with half inch thin blades.
These knives normally have longer blades also. Handle designs would be very similar with switch or retractable blade knives. Most designer knives will fall into this category.
