Temperate Climate Use Survival Knives are great! However remember rubber non-slip grip knives are the very best choice in extreme environments. Metal handle knives hold temperature. So when it's freezing cold or extremely hot you want to be able to hold the knife. As in this photo it utilizes Para-Cord as a handle wrap. Once this cordage is used you lose your handle. Solid shank knives are my favorite. They offer more durability. Less chance at breaking when used or hammered. Remember it's not the size of the knife that matters it's the dependability and function. You should carry a utility, pocket, axe/hatchet, parang. I always carry a trash blade, conserve my survival knife for when it's needed most. Include in your inventory a good quality wet stone. A dull knife only makes a job sloppy or adds to risk of accidental injury. Never baton the point of a knife, 1.5 inches typically behind the drop point. This will limit the cracking or breaking of your point. Featured in the picture below is a blade that's not a bad choice for fashioning as a bladed spear tip.
