Survivalist fans and adventurers with a passion for hostile environments, you know that your journeys will already be half successful as soon as you have the right equipment. Among the most important are useful survival knives. If you're wondering "how do I find the right survivalist knife?", at Hattila we offer a wide range of useful knives for your outdoor adventures.
The material of the blade
It should be said that the main function of knives, especially useful survival knives, is to cut. The success of a cut depends particularly on the quality and specificity of the knife blade. Indeed, it must be both solid and sharp. For this reason, consider using steel or alloy blades.
It is also important to note that the characteristics of the blade depend on the content of certain elements in the material used.
A blade with a high chromium content (stainless steel) is more resistant to corrosion. Knives with such a blade are more suitable for use in wet environments. However, they are less easy to sharpen and the edge is not as sharp as it should be.
A blade with a high carbon content is harder, very sharp and easy to maintain. However, its resistance to corrosion is lower than a stainless steel blade.
In short, the choice of blade type for your survivalist knife should be tailored to your needs.
