When it comes to hunting knives, many outdoorsmen will often discuss as to which the best knife is but as everyone has personal preferences, no knife is ever totally agreed on. However, having said that, many outdoorsmen will agree that the best hunting knife in the world is probably either one of the KA-BAR knives or one of the Bear Grylls knives.
A hunting knife is an essential piece of equipment for an avid outdoorsman as it can be used for a wide variety of purposes and not just for hunting. A good hunting knife can, therefore, make the difference between life and death if confronted with one of the many potential problems that can arise in the great outdoors. Of course, some things are essential about any hunting knife like it has to be sharp in order to be useful and it must be reasonably strong, perhaps the stronger the better.
There is little doubt though and most outdoorsmen would agree that two of the best hunting knives are ones from KA-BAR and the Bear Grylls knives. Bear Grylls, of course, has earned a great deal of fame on the TV as the man who successfully battles against nature in his own set of survival series. There is therefore also little doubt that he too is an experienced outdoorsman and so would not knowingly allow his name to be associated with something which was not good, especially a hunting knife.
Just because a hunting knife is associated with or even recommended by a celebrity, even a celebrity like Grylls who is well-known for his survival skills, does not necessarily make it the best knife although it could be reasonably expected to be among the best. For many outdoorsmen, a Grylls knife is probably adequate if not excellent and it may only be those more discerning outdoorsmen that would look for something better. Of those that do look for something better, the KA-BAR knives are often the ones they look at and some of the time pick over the Grylls knives. One readily noticeable point between them is that the Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Campanion Fixed Blade Knife has a 5.5-inch blade whilst the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Serrated Knife only has a 5-inch blade.
Often an outdoorsman will prefer a hunting knife that comes with its own special sheaf and there is good reason for this as they will want to know that their knife is properly secured and yet easily available as and when needed and the best way to assure that, is if a sheaf has been specially designed for a particular knife.
