M21 by CRKT
This is a great survival knife. If the one knife that you rely on happens to be your folding blade that you carry around daily, then it needs to be a good one. This is one blade that you could carry around for years and it will stay sharp for a long time. When it finally comes time to sharpen it, it will sharpen up nicely. The blade is only 3 inches and weighs about 3 ounces. Not to mention that it has two safety locks and you can open it with one hand. It does have a bit of a high price for a folding blade at $50, but you will pay for what you get.
SL Pro 2 by Tool Logic
Now there are only a few blades that I will trust at my camp and one of them is the SL Pro 2. It really is a quality knife and for being less than $30, and having plenty of features such as a spark rod, LED flashlight and loud signal whistle, you are getting a good deal. This is a 3-inch blade that is partially serrated. The LED flashlight is actually stored in the knife handle, so you won’t lose it and the fire rod is attached to the flashlights housing.
Ultima by CRKT
The shape and size of this blade were actually made to be similar to Bronze Age daggers that date back well over 4000 years which make it a great survival knife. The handle is pretty interesting as well. It is an injection molded glass filled nylon that has more than 70 grip segments that have grooves to remove oil, water and mud. It is about a 10-inch blade made from stainless steel with a black titanium coating. It also has serrations on it and weighs about 9 ounces.
Force by SOG
This is one of those blades that will become a really great piece in your arsenal. The blade is made from steel and it is thicker than other blades. The best part is that it comes razor sharp once you open it. The handle is made from nylon and it has a glass breaking point on the handle. The handle is really light weight which makes the whole blade about 10 ounces. It also has a contoured shape that helps to keep the blade in your hand, and it also comes with checkering of small points as well. Now it is a bit steep priced at about $190, but again you get what you pay for.
