Two of my favorite knives are hunting knives and survival knives, which is why this heavy-duty Jungle King hunting knife has me so enthused. It’s essentially a hunting knife and survival knife in one.
At 14 inches, it has a freakishly huge blade, making it great for cutting through brush when trekking deep into the woods. I’ve also used it to cut pieces of firewood, and thought I’ve yet to skin an animal with it, I’m fairly confident it’s up to the task.
The knife comes with a stainless steel fixed- blade with a clip point, which makes it excellent for stabbing and tearing. Its top edge is serrated and can saw through wood if necessary.
A slick-looking jungle green nylon sheath is included and comes with some lagniappe in the form of a full-fledged survival kit, which contains: a multi-function skinning knife, can opener, slingshot, matches, compass, sewing kit, fishing kit, band aids, tweezers and more.
You’re not going to use all of this survival gear every time you hit the woods, but having it there gives you a host of tools to choose from. I dig that, and it’s another reason why I’m such a huge advocate of this knife.
Another is the price. The Jungle King Hunting Knife only costs $50, which is significantly less than many other hunting knives in its class.
Lastly, this is just a rugged-looking blade. I’ve never been one to prioritize style over substance, but when the substance is there, the style is a plus.
If you’re going to buy a survival knife, you might as well buy one that looks like it’s capable of slaying a mountain lion, skinning it, clearing brush for a campfire to roast it and finally slicing its tender morsels into tasty pieces for you to enjoy.
That’s exactly how I feel with this survival knife in tow.
