Given enough time and skill, a proficient bushcrafter will be able to equip a very comfortable shelter with a range of nutritious food to sustain your time in the wilds.
What to use a bushcraft knife for?
Generally, a bushcraft knife is a fixed blade knife which is stored in a sheath and carried on the belt or in a pack as a survival knife. Having said that, a number of fine folding blade bushcraft knives are gaining popularity. The blade should be sturdy enough to allow you to split wood, and be sharp enough to shave tinder for your fire. A square-edged spine on a carbon steel knife will allow you to easily produce sparks from your firesteel.
Importantly, the survival knife should be easily cleanable, so that you can use it for food preparation, with a handle that is extremely comfortable for sustained use.
