Get a knife with a bright colored handle

by Dan Russell
(Northern Maine)

Just a note about knives in the wilderness. As a hunter and professional forester with over 35 years experience in the woods, my favorite pet peeve is this:

For a survival knife I would like to see the handle a bright color, not black, or camo as is often advertised in hunting catalogs. I have come very close to losing my knife more than once while field dressing game and laying it on the ground. There is nothing "sexy" or manly about a lost knife in a survival situation. There are many quality knives made, but a lost knife is "no knife at all".
