The world is full of “things” for the homesteader. Some of them are actually useful; others are just made to make you believe that you need them. One thing that is certain, blades of many types are essential for life on the homestead. You can do without many things, but a good knife (or knives) is not among them.
There are many really good knives out there and this piece is not about saying one knife manufacturer is better than another. Instead, it is about giving you, the reader, a good idea of the types of knives you should have on hand on any homestead.
Will I cover every possible knife available? No. Will you agree with all of the choices that I suggest? No. Will I leave out some knife styles that you think are important? Yes, I will. This article is only a guideline, based on my experiences. You will have your own experiences to draw upon, and you should decide which knife styles and brands are best for you, based on those experiences.
