Now, knives are made from metal. Some are really sophisticated which are composed of different alloys to achieve strength, durability, and superior sharpness.
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.
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.
The blade length on survival knives is often the subject of debate. Most people should avoid the huge "Rambo" style survival knives. They are heavy and can be awkward to use for many of the tasks survival knives may be expected to perform unless you are familiar with how to use the knife. Many people feel more confident with long heavy bladed survival knives. Others feel survival knives with a long blade are too awkward for some of the tasks they expect survival knives to do.
Another type of all purpose knives are the fixed blade varieties. These knives have more stable blades. Typically, screws are used to hold the blade firmly in place and are attached to the handle.
