The Price is Right for This Multi-Use Survival and Hunting Knife

The Harbor Freight Tools Survival and Hunting Knife is a great product. This HFT survival knife is way more than just an ordinary survival knife.

The handle of the knife actually opens up, and various survival items are included inside the handle. The gear includes matches, a striking pad, a sewing kit, a fishing line, and a fishing hook. Even with all this, there's still room for more inside the handle.

The bottom of the handle also has a lid that unscrews, and on the inside of the lid, it has a compass which is really handy.

This knife could be very helpful in a survival situation, and also while hunting, camping, and hiking.

This knife is also fairly sharp and has saw teeth on the other side of the blade. Unfortunately, the sawing teeth don't really do their job as they don't see very well.

However, the knife’s main purpose, which is to cut and slice, works the way it should. It can cut through wood very well.

The blade is stainless steel, while the handle is aluminum. The product weighs about 2 pounds.

The knife also includes a sheath, which unfortunately feels and looks cheap. Nevertheless, the sheath also does its job.

The knife’s appearance is absolutely amazing. It looks like a cutting machine. The look is extremely sleek, professional and masculine.

This product can be bought online. It can also be bought at the American tool store, Harbor Freight. The price of this awesome knife is only $9.99 which is a great price for this product. I would recommend this piece of survival gear for every survivalist, prepper or outdoorsman.

    Whilst I am the first to say that in a SHTF situation, Any knife is better than no knife … In my own personal experience I would avoid depending on such a knife for Survival ! Whilst it’s great fun and a little Rambo Gimmicky !! when put to extreme survival conditions, the chances are it will fail you !! If your budget is this low, opt for something from the Morakniv range !

    It’s an okay knife for the price but I wouldn’t rely on it in a survival situation. It’s a bit of fun rather than a serious tool.

    What’s not to like? Inexpensive and durable. I substantially modified my knife. Made
    leather sheath. I use it as a go to for the rough stuff. It seems to like it. Keep
    a sharpening stone handy.
