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.
Because combat knives have larger and longer blades with heavy handles, it would be very difficult to use them for cutting small objects. Designer camping knives have sheaths made from leather.
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.
Most survival knives have a multi-purpose blade. The blade can usually perform multiple tasks like chopping,cutting, spearing and prying. The handle often has a lanyard hole so the survival knife can be tied to a pole to make a spear.
Now, knives are made from metal. Some are really sophisticated which are composed of different alloys to achieve strength, durability, and superior sharpness.
