Forget Bear Grylls and his underachieving 4-inch sissy knife. This 10-inch bushwhacker isn’t civilized, precise or concealed-carry legal in any state. Designed for Buck Knives by survival guru Ron Hood, the Hoodlum ($230) can reduce small trees into life-sustaining kindling while cleaving a panther skull. And your hands won’t suffer, since the SMS (shock mitigation system) in the Micarta handle takes the edge off each killing blow. The straight clip blade is made of a 5160 spring steel—less brittle than the stainless steel that’s typically used in smaller survival knives, it’ll still hold a decent edge for extended expeditions.
