List of Knives Used on Dual Survival

We’re big fans of Dual Survival in this household. After doing a quick check on Google to see if there was a list that stated which knives were used on each episode of Dual Survival, we came up dry and thought we’d write one up ourselves, just in case any other fans were curious about which knives were used on the show, or if anyone wanted to look into getting a particular knife they saw on an episode. Let us know in the comments if you’d like us to do this for any other TV shows, movies, etc.

By way of introduction…

  • Cody Lundin knife of choice on Dual Survival: Mora Classic 1
  • Dave Canterbury knife of choice on Dual Survival: PLSK 1 Pathfinder
  • Joe Teti knife of choice on Dual Survival: Tops SURV-TAC 7

Just as a summation of the lists above, Cody Lundin’s knife of choice throughout the Dual Survival TV series is most frequently the Mora Classic 1, which he typically wears around his neck. Cody Lundin is by far the most consistent with his knife choice, with Dave Canterbury and Joe Teti essentially being tied for second most consistent.

Dave Canterbury’s knife of choice is most frequently the PLSK 1 Pathfinder, which comes from his own line of knives, Blind Horse Knives. That being said, Dave alternates between carrying the PLSK 1 Pathfinder and miscellaneous multi-tools and other knives more frequently than Cody did in the Dual Survival series, especially in the second season, where Dave only actually uses his choice knife twice (in the last two episodes).

Joe Teti’s knife of choice on Dual Survival is the Tops SURV-TAC 7, as he carries it in seven of the eleven episodes in season 3. Teti actually helped to design the SURV-TAC 7 with Tops, which is likely why he’s so fond of this knife. Joe Teti’s second choice of knife on the Dual Survival series is the Tops Anaconda, which he uses four times throughout season 3.

We’ll try to keep this list updated once the episodes for Season 4 begin to air, but if not, we’ll for sure have Season 4′s list up once the season ends.

  1. Cody never used a Mora #1. It was actually a Premier brand that went out of business years ago. The factory was actually in the town of Mora, but not the knife that is currently manufactured as the Mora 1. Look closely at he handle shapes. Plus his comment on his knife he nick-named “Honey” are online. It is probably closer to the current Mora #1 than any other.

    • Thomas Xavier says:

      Indeed, you’re right. For the sake of simplification I referred to it as the Mora Classic 1, as you’re spot on, the company that used to make Cody’s exact Mora no longer exists, and the Mora Classic is the absolute closest to the Mora that Cody carries. The Mora Classic is essentially the same knife, in terms of practical use, material, and design, but technically made by a different company since the old company is no longer in business.

      My own personal “Mora #1” is also made by one of those brands that now no longer exists. I can’t actually tell the difference between it and a Frosts Mora #1 in actual use.
