Recent Fixed-Blade Knife Reviews

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 5 of 5 stars Great looking knife that feels good in the hand. Comes extremely sharp and has a built-in fire starter. I used this knife for the first time on an overnight hiking trip. Easily handled my wood prep and allowed me to slice down beautiful feather sticks. The knife's sharp spine threw a spark like nothing and made igniting my fire a breeze. Used it to slice and do my food prep. Have yet to use it for bushcraft, but am confident it will handle those tasks quite well. Great knife at a budget-friendly… Full review

Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter

rated 5 of 5 stars Good versatile outdoor knife. I have used this knife for the last years. For hunting, fishing, hiking, and general outdoors in Norway. This has ended up being my everyday knife. Works well for making up fish, meat, and firewood. The rubberized handle sticks in the hand even when wet. Well shaped blade, only a bit thick. I find this knife so well made that I have gotten the Penndleton Mini Hunter for my kids 5/9 years. The mini version is the best shaped knife I have seen for kids.  Full review

Morakniv Bushcraft Black

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid, all-round bushcraft/survival knife. My go-to bush blade. Heavy enough to do most anything and lives in my pack. This knife is perfect for all but the most delicate carving tasks, and I would steer folks to this blade as a budget version of a heavy duty blade that's ready to go! No modifications are necessary. Everything about this knife just works. I've used multiple Morakniv knives and so far, this is superior to the ones I've used.  I teach basic survival programs and this is one of the… Full review

Helle Mandra

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mândra is a small and relatively light knife suitable for belt or neck carry. Made of quality materials, it is a perfect companion blade for a larger camp knife or an option with Old World appeal for a backpacker or outdoors enthusiast seeking fixed blade utility for modest chores. It has a gorgeous design that was executed with minor cosmetic imperfections. Introduction The Mândra (which means “proud” in Romanian) is a small fixed blade knife produced by Helle, a Norwegian knife maker founded… Full review

Morakniv Mora Pro C

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Can't beat Mora with price and especially quality. All you need for survival, camping. Buying this knife for 12 EUR was one of my best deals and decisions. I thought between this and the stainless version (PRO S) and decided on this due to it is easier to sharpen it. Wasn't wrong a tiny bit and after using it for a year (not too extensively) I must say it is still very sharp like it was when it was new. Really I can say much more about this great tool, but I am bit lazy so it's all for now. :-) Full review

Hyken Knives Bushcrafter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Well-contoured micarta slabs pinned to a 5/32-inch thick block of CPM 154 steel is a pretty good start to a fixed-blade bushcraft knife. Incorporating a slight handle swell, a convexed scandi grind, and an unobtrusive choil can make it a great knife. Knowing just where to put the balance point and how to proportion the blade to the handle ensures it’s a great knife. A perfectly-fitted bridle leather sheath is just icing on the cake. Best For: Well it’s made for the bushcrafting crowd, isn’t… Full review

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a nice basic knife with an integral FireSteel that would make a great all around camp knife. First off, I would like to state that I received this knife as a gift for being a past reviewer of the month here at Trailspace. The Light My Fife Swedish FireKnife is a basic fixed blade knife that comes with a sheath and a ferrocerium style striker that is stored in the handle of the knife. Here is a picture of the store packaging for the knife and one interesting note about the packaging is the… Full review

ESEE Knives ESEE-3 Uncoated

rated 5 of 5 stars The best slicing knife I've ever used. I bought the uncoated version of the ESEE 3 in the early spring and have used it daily for three seasons so far (8 months). I do landscaping for a living, go backwoods camping and backpacking very often, and just finished up a successful season of white tail deer hunting.  Early on, fighting the rust was a pretty consistent issue, which I expected, but not quite to the degree that I experienced. I read that others recommended applying a "forced patina" to… Full review

ESEE Knives Junglas

rated 4 of 5 stars A durable large blade for wood processing. The ESEE Junglas is a beast of a knife. Its superb heat treat means that the knife can take a beating and come back for more. All of the knife is designed to resist severe use and abuse. The coating on the blade is one of the most durable I have ever used, surpassing even the custom coatings on some of my blades. The canvas micarta handle is impervious to water and fitted perfectly to the handle. While canvas micarta can potentially crack it would take… Full review
