ENTRY #5, #6 and #7: SHTF “Go To” Knife photo contest

Here are a few entries in the MSO SHTF “Go To” Knife contest. The best one selected will win a Gerber Machete Pro.

I am not looking for a picture of a knife laying on the kitchen counter – somehow make it unique and interesting. Set your entry apart from the rest. This could be something unique with the picture or maybe the description – or both.

Send your contest entries to emergencycd(at)gmail.com. Make sure to include the picture and tell me a little about why you have chosen this as your SHTF knife.


The contest will run through March 1st. Each entry will be presented here on ModernSurvivalOnline. Anyone entering the contest must be willing to supply their name and address should they win the so it can be shipped to them.

From Dustin F. – I don’t know who made it or what metal it is bit it is the knife my dad gave me.  It is the knife he used and the knife he used to teach me how to sharpen and use safely.

Rooikat Urban Survival Knife

O1 tool steel. Natural micarta handle. Saddle leather high ride sheath.
Made for me by JK knives.
This was designed as the ultimate portable, concealable urban blade. One of only 3 in existence.
There is also a larger version, for outdoors and heavy-duty applications, known as the RUSK MAX.

 As many of us in this uncertain world who see how this country is falling apart, we all have worries about what will bring our society down and also have the same question, will we recover. As we prepare by acquiring goods and equipment, there are many reviews on the Internet that you could spend numerous hours or days reviewing. There may be one person who reviews an item and says it’s the best ever, or five websites have their top 10 with their results completely different from one another. I do read reviews on products and will provide my feedback if I have used that particular product, but I don’t make a decision to purchase an item solely from someone or a site, for all we know none of them may have ever spent one night in the woods. There are those sites and people out there on the Internet and I’m sure many of you have stumbled upon them. My “Go-To” knife in a SHTF scenario would be the CRKT Ultima 7.

  1. Of those listed so far, the only one I think I could live with long term is the Rooikat Urban Survival Knife. My personal preferences would run to that knife. The others (not having used any of them) seem to have too many squared off edges that would be tough to use for a long time battoning wood, skinning a deer, things like that, I see blisters. I also don’t like “Tanto” points for bush craft or SS blades.

    A knife should be an extension of your own hand. You should be able to use it for hours if necessary. The Rooikat is all of that.

    My preferred knife would be a Pathfinder edition Scout Knife:


    But that one WAY over my budget.
