Recent Fixed-Blade Knife Reviews

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

Fällkniven F1

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, full-tang lightsaber...I mean survival knife. The F1 is a heavy-duty yet nimble knife with a well-deserved reputation in the global outdoor community. This has been the standard issue survival knife for pilots in the Swedish Air Force since 1995. This is as capable a knife as any I have ever owned, and yet it's so lightweight that I don't hesitate to take it on hiking/backpacking outings. Weighs 6 oz. OAL 3.8" Blade length 3.8" 59 HRC Shaving sharp This knife was the sharpest out-of-the-box… Full review

Benchmade Bushcrafter Family

rated 5 of 5 stars Looked into getting a cheaper bushcraft knife that was full tang to compliment my Mora. At first hard to swallow the price, but this is S30V steel. This blade holds an edge like no other. Has a fantastic warranty and will not rust here on the Oregon coast. I bought this knife as a closeout. I previously purchased a couple of Moras that I absolutely love. But I as I got into the hobby of so called bushcraft—what I used to call camping recreation until it took off—I decided I wanted a full tang… Full review

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 4 of 5 stars I bought this knife on sale and I thought it would come in handy camping and backpacking and for other things. It has multiple uses and the fire starter works great. I bought this knife to bring with me camping and backpacking for multiple uses. It comes in handy for a lot of things from starting a campfire to skinning and gutting fish, to small repairs around camp. I even used this knife as a trowel when I forgot to bring mine on a trip. It is heavy duty and not too heavy. It's nice to have a tool… Full review

SOG Seal Team Elite

rated 5 of 5 stars Although sold as a tactical blade because of its serrated edge, this makes a great bush crafting knife for camp use. It is made of AUS-8 stainless and can be used in any environment. It has been heat treated and low temperature treated to become the tough, edge holding ultra knife. It is coated in black to avoid reflections and shed chemicals. It is a hollow grind to become shaving sharp. It is easy to sharpen with a diamond rod or just strop using white rouge on a piece of leather. This knife has… Full review

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I received this knife as part of the 10 Essentials Reviewer of the Month prize pack. I split an A4 page holding the page with one hand and started fire very easily with the blunt side of the knife (don't laugh) to some toilet paper. The problem lies in the softness (purity maybe?) of the magnesium rod. No matter how slow I scraped the rod I couldn't get a pile of shavings as they burnt instantly. So lots of sparks but no pile to make a difference when in a difficult situation with wet tinder. Overall… Full review

Morakniv Bushcraft Survival

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sharp, sturdy, versatile, reliable and available in different colors. This fix blade bushcraft knife is made with Swedish stainless steel with a rubber handle, it comes with a fire starter and diamond file all affixed to a protective hard sheath. You won't lose sleep over this knife with it being a fairly affordable option on any of your adventurous outings. The Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Orange This particular Morakniv Bushcraft survival knife model comes with a fitted hard sheath with a drain… Full review

Morakniv Companion

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect for anyone who needs a sharp fixed blade knife for basic camp kitchen and basic bushcraft chores. Backpackers will especially enjoy how lightweight this knife is. After collecting all manner of knives I have fallen in love with the Mora for basic outdoor chores. The 4.1" carbon blade is a very usefull size without being too short for many tasks or too long and too awkward to carry. Folding knives have their place but a fixed blade will always be easier to deploy and use. A fixed blade knife… Full review

Schrade Frontier SCHF37

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a good quality knife that's better for bushcraft and not your best choice for ultralight hiking. When I first received this knife my initial impression was that the blade was about the length I like at 6 inches (165 mm) cutting edge and it had a nice choil, but it was wider though at 1.25 inches (33 mm) edge to spine and 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) thick than I was used to and then there was the weight at 18 ounces. The rest of the system, hone, sheath and fire steel, brought the total weight to… Full review
