Bushcraft/Survival Knives

skill at living in the bush.

The term was coined after the means of survival in the Australian outback or “bush country.” Good bushcraft skills mean the difference between life and death, and those skills are hugely enhanced by a good knife, your primary tool.
The right bushcraft knife is an essential tool in order to be able to survive.
It must be part hunting knife, part tactical knife, and part camping knife since you will be carrying for the foreseeable, and often unforeseeable, future. It needs to be able to cut limbs for fires and cooking, as well as building shelters. It should be capable of cleaning and skinning an animal as well as basic self-defense. It must have a full tang since it will be put through countless hours of abuse.
There are quite a few good knives out there to be used in the bush. But when it comes to my survival, there are only a couple knives I would count on.
The Gear2Survive Classic Bushcraft knife designed by Marc Lacrimosa (yes my brother) and built by Shadow Tech Knives in Ohio.


The other is the new Defiant Bushcraft knife designed by Abe Ellis and built by Colonial Knives of Rhode Island.




Why these two knives?

  • Both of these knives are heavy duty knives without being so large as to make it difficult to be able handle small tasks.
  • Both knives are guaranteed for life by the manufacturers. (They are able to outlast you).
  • Both knives can handle multiple tasks.
  • Both knives are large enough to be used in a self-defense situation
  • Both knives have sheaths that allow multiple ways to carry


Bellow is a side by side comparison:


Here’s what others are saying about the knives:
Colonial Knife Corp: “It more than met my expectations”

Gear2Survive: “It feels like an ESEE, only better”


Both knives are great knives and would make you feel as if you’re able survive the bush a hell of a lot easier!

New Bushcraft Knife

Bushcraft is a popular term for wilderness skills in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The term was popularized in the southern hemisphere by Les Hiddins (The Bush Tucker Man) in Australia as well as in the northern hemisphere by Mors Kochanski and recently gained considerable currency in the United Kingdom due to the popularity of Ray Mears and his bushcraft and survival television programs. It is also becoming popular in urban areas where the average person is separated from nature.

Bushcraft is about thriving in the natural environment, and the acquisition of the skills and knowledge to do so. Bushcraft skills include firecraft, tracking, hunting, fishing, shelter building, the use of tools such as knives and axes, foraging, hand-carving wood, container construction from natural materials, and rope and twine-making, among others.
