Tip 3. This is NOT a survival knife… hollow handle for storage of survival gear? yes. usefulness of 10 feet of fishing line, a few hooks, 3 matches and a button compass (thats what usually comes in these)? Better than nothing, you say? Well, sure, but when your knife is in 2 pieces because of the crappy construction, you’ll probably realise that a small pouch worth of survival gear on your belt along with a good knife is a better bet!
