    OK so we have all seen the guns for this subject so lets see your SHTF knife. We all know that a good knife is just as important as a good gun so let me see what you would bring to the game. Mine is the Western W49, its big and badaxx in any situation. DSCF1242.jpg

    I saw a nice Winchester knife at Wholesale Sports that looks like that one. This ones only $26 so it's probably not the highest quality, but it's within my budget.

    After several days of pondering the question again I decided that one isn't enough. How could I choose just one any way. Here are a few I would grab.

    Here is my SHTF knife. Ontario RTAKII, It was spensive:(, close to $90 but I am hoping that it is big enough to do everything I need it to do and hold up nicely. They have excellent reviews online and the few other Ontario knives I own I have been impressed with so far!:thumbup:

    In my ohbubblegumbag I have a leatherman mut and that gerber knife endorsed by that Limey bear that has the magnesium fire starter snd sharpening stone. In my pocket I always carry either a zt 300 or my kershaw blur that thing is a workhorse best knife I've ever had! Oh and on my belt is almost always a leatherman of sorts

    I cannot consider one knife for SHTF.. one can be a camp beater, one a deer skinner, one a fighter but not really all in one if you want optimal. Yes I have about 100 knives and swords, not to mention pikes, spears and pole axes

    If I had to choose two one would be the cheap Pakastani bowie and the other would be a Junglee Hattori Fighter or better. But an Ontario machete would be primary

    Plus 1 for the machete suggestions, although I'd also be comfortable with a good, sharp axe or tomahawk in the woods.

    I like that.Been looking at a few different brands.
    But that's kinda cute saying $90 is an expensive knife. Wish I would keep that in mind when I knife shop.

    Ontario USGI mil spec machete.. I prefer the 18 inch because they are much better at taking down trees (I have done so in a pinch when they were blocking a 4 x 4 path) but I have a few 12 inchers too. Lethal weapons and great all around tools

    There is a blade torture site with vids where $400 knives have failed and the $20 Cold Steel Kukri (basically heat treated sheet metal) survived to the end. Surprised the heck out of me
