Does your bug out bag contain at least one or two survival knives? If not, it’s time to carefully reconsider your plans and make a purchase or two.
After all, guns are great tools and have the potential to be extremely helpful after the SHTF, but they’re not truly a multipurpose item. These highly useful tools can be everything from weapons to a resource for food preparation.

Fortunately, even preppers on a budget can improve their bug out supplies and boost their odds of survival by picking up a perfectly serviceable knife for less than $50. Let’s take a closer look at 10 options that should be on everyone’s wish list.
