First, let’s see what Mors has to say about knives.
Now considering the fact that we have many different shapes of knives is important, let’s take a look at some of them below.
While this is just a small sample of the different types, it helps to have a visual representation of some of the names commonly used.
Creek Stewart brings up some good points as well in this video.
I tend to agree with Creek, in that the full tang knife is the way to go. I’ve never been real keen on using a folding knife in the woods, but recently folks in the Mors camp have shown me that there is more than one way.
What do I personally recommend? Trying several styles of knives out and making a decision based on what you like is best. It may even change with time, so having sevreal different types of blades at your disposal is a good idea. Most importantly, get out there and find out what works.
