- Blade: The blade is usually made from high-quality stainless steel or other durable materials. It is designed with a sharp edge for slicing, cutting, and chopping. The length of the blade provides versatility for a range of tasks, including food preparation, woodwork, and shelter building.
- Handle: The handle is typically ergonomically designed for a comfortable and secure grip. It may be made from materials such as rubber, polymer, or wrapped with paracord, providing a non-slip surface even in wet conditions. Some survival knives have hollow handles with a removable cap for storing small items such as matches or fishing line.
