A trip through the wilderness or rainforest will hopefully come incident-free, but you must be prepared for the worst. That means having a survival knife on hand. As Gizmodo highlights, survival knives are specifically manufactured for a range of purposes; they can cut and carve wood and plants, as well as acting as a self-defense tool against wild animals. Choosing a weapon depends on your needs, skill ability with weapons, and the environment you’re heading into. A stiff-handled knife may be useful in some environments, but a knife that you can throw easily can be useful for some particularly hostile parts of the rainforest. Figure out the trail you’ll be following and then pick your tool to adapt.
