Survival Knives, Best Bang for your Buck

Survival Knives

Everyone has their own opinion of what constitutes the “best” survival knife. For me it comes down to a quality to price comparison.

In my opinion, Frost Mora makes a knife that gives you the most bang for your buck, coming in at around $10.00-15.00 depending on the model.

The Mora Clipper is my favorite fixed blade knife, I keep one in my vehicle and two of them in my B.O.B. The only real downside is that it only has a ¾ tang on the knife, but this is quickly counteracted by the fact that you can purchase three or four of these knives for the price of one of the good (more expensive) name brand knives such as Kabar.


High carbon steel blade
Large handle with plenty of grip
Extremely economical
Plastic handle is easy to sanitize


Not a full tang on the blade
Plastic case is a bit bulky
Plastic case feels cheap

A little history on Frost/Mora:
With a name that is synonymous with over 300 years of knife-making under its belt, Mora of Sweden manufactures knives that combine the skill of a knife smith with the latest technology manufacturing methods. A variety of specialized models are available in to meet the complete needs of sportsmen active in bush craft survival, hunting, camping, sports fishing and boating; woodworkers, craftsmen and tradesmen; as well as professionals in the commercial fish, meat, and poultry industries.

Mora knives come highly recommended by notable bushcraft teachers Ray Mears, Cody Lundin and Mors Kochanski.

    Mora can’t be touched as far as bang for your buck goes. I still would want something a little more sturdy, but for 15 bucks it’s hard to argue…

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think
    that you should write more on this issue, it might not be a taboo
    subject but usually folks don’t speak about these subjects.
    To the next! Best wishes!!
