Posted

So finally you have considered purchasing a survival knife and it has turned out to be one of your most helpful tools. Now, here, one question takes place that how you are going to look after your survival knife in order to ensure that it lasts a long time. Well, the blow-mentioned tips will assist you to confirm that it’ll last longer and always be there at the time of need. Let’s have a short look:

  • The first and foremost tip is keeping your knife functional - Don't use it wrongly.
  • The second thing is that you should keep your knife clean completely together with its handle.
  • Keep it oiled – You can use a light coat on it.
  • You should also keep it dry completely and not only the blade.
  • Also, keep its blade sharp, as it is more protected as compared to a dull one.

Firstly, you have to use the survival knife with an aim for which it was manufactured. You should avoid using it as a hammer and to remove the little screws on the reverse side of the laptop. In case, the handbook doesn't advocate making use of it to cut rocks, then you will have to get a new tool to begin your pet rock carving work. In addition to this, using your knife for purposes except the given ones will just harm your knife, make it less functional and perhaps put your or other people's life at risk.

Keep the knife all clean. For this, you can wipe it down after the use. Here, you don't have to clean it after each chop or cut you make, that might be a sign of other difficulties, in particular, if you find yourself placing bits and pieces at precise angles on end tables. At the time of cleaning it, you should not overlook its handle. Wash out any grime with running water and a little soap preferably. Dry it completely. If the wetness still remains on the knife, it can cause rust. In case, it has a stainless steel blade, you should evade leaving any fingerprint oil on the blade. The oils on the fingers can make the knife dirty and may, in fact, be the reason of decay.

Just bear in mind that oiling the blade of the knife is also recommended, as it protects the blade from rusting and assists to keep it clean. Moreover, keeping it sharp is also important.
