A good hunting knife is essential for any enthusiastic outdoor person and may even try to ensure that they have only the best hunting knife available when they go outside into the fields. The problem comes when trying to decide which exactly is the best hunting knife as there is today so many to choose from. Even the various websites with titles like best hunting knife 2018 will not actually call the name of one particular knife but instead, perhaps place reviews for 5 or 10 hunting knives of which they consider to be the best knives, allowing their readers to decide which one, to them, would be the best hunting knife. Regardless of which of these various websites you go to though, 2 or 3 blades always appear in the top selections and so it can be reasonably assumed that if you were to buy any one of those, you would have a very reliable knife even if it was not perhaps the ideal knife for you.
Any respectable hunting knife should at least be strong, sharp and long enough to be of use for different purposes but how strong a knife should be is perhaps a personal choice as weight is often considered to be another factor. The sharpness is less important when selecting which knife to buy as of course, most can always be sharpened more before taking them into the field. The length of the knife is another one of personal preference but most are usually between 5 and 6 inches in length which seems to suit most outdoorsmen.
Some of the best knives according to many of the websites are the ones which share their name with perhaps TV’s best-known outdoorsman Bear Grylls. Bear Grylls has been seen on TV surviving in some of the world’s most dangerous places and positions and yet always seems to survive successfully, often due to him having a good hunting knife. A hunting knife with his name on it should, therefore, be very reasonable if not the best. It is, however, the fact that personal preferences do play a part in deciding which is the best hunting which makes them only appear among others on lists of the best hunting knives.
Another brand of the knife which often appears on lists of the best hunting knives is the KA-BAR brand and often knives of this brand appear above the Grylls brand which alone, should make them worth considering. The top knife of each of these brands is the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Serrated Knife for the Grylls brand and the Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Campanion Fixed Blade Knife for the KA-Bar brand.
