Hunting knives: how to choose well?

Is hunting your passion? You need a knife! Hunting knives have two main functions. They are used for processing game during the hunt, but are also very practical as multifunctional tools during the hunt (cooking, small jobs, clearing brush, etc.).

What type of hunting knife to choose?

There are two possibilities: fixed knife or folding knife. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. The fixed knife has the reputation of being stronger and easier to clean while the folding knife seems to be more practical and more discreet. It all depends, of course, on how you want to use your tool. Hattila.com offers you a range of very solid fixed-blade hunting knives that will stand up to anything! You're sure to find the model that suits you.

The hunting knife in the context of survivalism

Hunting knives are also used in the context of survivalism (life-size survival techniques) to make ammunition for bows or crossbow bolts, for example.

Before practicing this activity, it is imperative to prepare a survival kit worthy of the name. In short, your hunting knife will quickly become an essential part of your survival equipment!

Beyond survival, a trend called bushcraft is gradually emerging. It's about relearning how to live a prosperous life with nature, as well as acquiring more or less ancient skills to do so. In this case, you will most likely need to supplement your survival kit with a survival dagger, dagger, crossbow or slingshot.

What about the case?

The case is very often forgotten, but it must be an integral part of your purchase. Your safety is at stake, especially in the case of a knife with a fixed blade. It is essential to choose a case adapted to the shape and length of your blade.

If you wish to carry your knife on your belt, choose a model with a safety tab. To avoid many inconveniences, we offer you cases adapted to our knives. It's up to you to choose the one that suits you best among our proposals: leather, synthetic, plastic, etc. It's a matter of taste! Leather remains the strongest material in terms of case, provided it is thick enough of course.
