The Rambo Survival Knives are the personal main weapons of John Rambo. Throughout every film, Rambo has been armed with a holstered knife he used in combat. He often uses these specially made, unique blades to dispatch enemies in surprise hand to hand combat. It is also useful in stealth attacks, in the event that Rambo is unable to take on his enemies in a straight up fight out in the open. It can also be a versatile tool used for cutting through barbed wire and restraints. Much like his bow, they have become a staple of the character. However, in Rambo IV, Rambo, after losing his knife, forges himself a machete.

The idea of the character of John Rambo carrying a survival knife was not in David Morrell's original 1981 novel. It was actually first suggested by knife enthusiast Sylvester Stallone because it would not only have something to go along with the character, but also because it would illustrate his creative guerrilla training.

The official replicas on the market have several differences with the knives used in the movies, both in materials and little details.

The most different official replicas on the market are the knives of 'first blood' (different blade design) and Rambo III (which is shorter).

Rambo II and IV knives replicas are correct, but all of official replicas of the four knives use lesser quality steels and tang construction.
