What is more important that a knife in your survival kit. You know, bush crafters can make blades with stones and get some work done but make no mistake that steel is the superior material. When the white man showed up in the New World he had metal and it didn’t take long before the Native Americans saw that metal and realized that their stone and bone tools were a thing of the past. One of the things they wanted more than anything was metal! Its just superior blade that stays sharper longer. A stone knife tethered to a jaw bone or a stick is no substitute for a full tang steel blade.
This article is a long list of the many things you can do with a survival knife. It will reinforce the reason they are so important. I am sure you will learn something from this one!
