Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife: Review
The Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is long, big, heavy, and something that will help keep you safe out in the woods.
Who is this product for?
The Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is for anybody who needs to cut apart branches for burning, for people who need to create a pathway through thick brush, for self-defense against animals on the campground, and for anybody who likes the feel of carrying what essentially amounts to a short sword and machete combination.
When you purchase the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife, you get a big, awesome, intimidating, and multi-use knife. This is a full tang stainless steel knife, kind of like a big machete, one that comes with a heavy-duty nylon sheath.
Overview of features
If it is a big, heavy duty, and super scary survival knife you are looking for, the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife might just be a good option for you. It looks like a mix between a machete and an old scimitar used in the middle ages to remove limbs from people. Yeah, this is a big knife, one which any action movie star would be proud to wield on the big screen, one which any outdoorsman could put to good use.
First of all, this is a fixed-blade knife, or some might call it a short sword; it is a big item. The blade does not fold down, so there is that. However, even though it is a fixed blade knife, it comes with a high-quality sheath for carrying, and to keep both you and the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife itself safe while not in use. The sheath is very strong and easy to attach to your pants or jacket. Moreover, the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is a pretty heavy item, with an overall weight of nearly 1.5 pounds.
No, this is not a little fish-gutting knife. It’s a machete-like knife that you would use for something like self-defense, chopping down brush, cutting wood, and other such tasks. However, what we want to note here is that although the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is quite heavy, it is still fairly maneuverable thanks to the fact that there is a great balance between the blade and the handle. In terms of the blade and handle, something else to note is that it is a full-tang knife, which means that the metal from the blade extends all the way down the handle, making it just that much more durable and solid overall.
The blade on the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is a full 13.5 inches long, which is huge. It is a high-quality blade made of 65 Mn carbon spring steel with a black powder coat finish. This means that the blade of this knife is not going to chip or snap on you anytime soon, it is highly resistant to the elements, and it is not going to rust. Moreover, although this knife is big, it still has a fairly fine, sharp, and precise cutting edge that should last for many uses, and when it does get dull, it is quite easy to sharpen.
In terms of the handle, the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is made of Zytel with a skin-molded TPR. The handle is made to be very durable as well as comfortable to hold, which are of course two very important features.
In terms of a tutorial for the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife, there is really not much to say. Attach the sheath to your pants with the straps. When you want to take the knife out, undo the button strap holding it in the sheath, take the knife out, and get to business with it. Whether it is firewood, a wild animal, or a campsite intruder that gets in your way, a single swing will take care of more or less any problem in your path.

Ok, so yes, this knife might be a bit of overkill for your next camping trip or for survival needs. Sure, it might be ideal for plowing your way through uncharted jungles or for hacking off some limbs, tree limbs, that is, but it’s not exactly something you would use to gut a fish or cut some fishing line.
If you would like to get your hands on something a bit more manageable, you might want to look at something like the Schrade SCHF3N 12in Full Tang High Carbon S.S. Fixed Blade Knife. This is still a large fixed-blade knife, but it comes in at about half the weight and size of Outdoor Edge we reviewed here today, making it a bit more manageable and portable.
There is simply no arguing the fact that the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is a real knife for a real man. Yes, it might be massive and a bit cumbersome, but it’s a knife that Atilla the Hun would run away from. It’s big, it’s durable, it’s sharp, and this bad boy will cut through mostly anything. If you like big and intimidating knives that happen to work for outdoor and survival situations, the Outdoor Edge Brush Demon Survival Knife is a great option for you.
