I will introduce all kinds of knives and their attributes in detail, and preliminary explain how to choose knives in outdoor sports and some matters needing attention when using knives.

Pocket knife
Mainly used for food processing, small cutting and cutting, making traps and other detailed work.


Small straight knife
The utility is basically the same as the small folding knife, but stronger and more reliable. The disadvantage is not convenient to carry.


Medium and large straight knife
It is often used in large area cutting and small scale chopping, and can be used to make a variety of other tools (such as harpoons and crutches).


Special knife
It is mainly used for cleaving and chopping to clear debris in a large range, and it plays a great role in places with complex vegetation. You can use an axe in the snow field.
