Recent Fixed-Blade Knife Reviews

Morakniv Companion Knife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An extremely sharp, durable, carbon steel knife for $15?? Yes, please! This is by far the best knife under 20 bucks that I have found. (If anyone has found a better one, or has a suggestion, comment below because I'd like to check it out!) Simply put, it is durable, sharp, easy to hold, and light weight. It has become my trusty companion — no pun intended — on many hikes and camping adventures. The fixed blade is a little over 4 inches long (spine is 2.5mm, or .10in) with a drop point edge and… Full review

Outdoor Edge Hybrid Hunter

rated 5 of 5 stars Good knife, very light, holds an edge well. Had this knife for about 5 or 6 years now and I don't go into the bush without it. I paid about $50 for it at the local sporting goods store. It has an overall length of 8 1/8 in. with a blade length of 3 7/8 in. and weighs in at just 3.61 oz. (5.56 oz. in sheath). Full tang design gives it excellent balance and strength, and the rubberized grip holds wet or dry. The AUS-8 stainless is excellent for keeping an edge and has great durability and pretty good… Full review

SOG Jungle Primitive

rated 4 of 5 stars This knife is excellent for everyday camping and trips out in the sticks. Comes out of the package extremely sharp with straight/ serrated combination blade, sawing teeth, and a pummel on the handle that have a multitude of uses. The blade isn't made out of the best metal, but if you keep it clean and sharp it will last a long time! Also, this is one of the coolest looking knives I have ever owned and it makes you feel unstoppable against whatever you come up against, be it skinning an animal, making… Full review

Gerber LMF II Survival

rated 4 of 5 stars If you plan on investing in a fixed-blade which will outlast even the coming zombie apocalypse, then you've made the right choice. I have been able to fell decent sized trees, shave down kindling into fire tender, and open a can of campbell's chunky when a can opener was nowhere on the trail. While these various functions are excellent, you really just want this knife because of the look. The dark earth handle attached to a black serrated blade looks quite impressive when strapped to the hip. This… Full review

ESEE Knives Candiru

rated 5 of 5 stars The smallest, strongest, sharpest chunk of metal I could find. The ESEE Candiru is probably the best backpacking knife you could get, in my opinion. It's the smallest of all the ESEE knives, and comes skeletonized without any grips. The sheath is crap. I feel like ESEE could make a better sheath for the price paid, and for the quality of their knives. The Candiru sheath works if you ditch the velcro, fold the loose flap back, sew it, then add a strap and snap to hold the handle down. It's not… Full review

Condor Tool & Knife Bushlore

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent, inexpensive, full tang, fixed blade knife, good for almost all camping/hiking chores. Low cost, well made and good ergonomics. I bought a Condor Tool & Knife "Bushlore" Camp Knife. At $30 it was a good deal. It had a paint coating on the blade that I did not like, so I sanded it off when I sanded the handle. There was nothing wrong with the handle scales, I just wanted to apply boiled linseed oil. The sheath is made of heavy grade, oiled leather and is both stitched and riveted. Blade… Full review

SOG Field Pup

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Really nice knife. This knife has a nice ergonomic handle that fits nicely in mine, it has a medium sized hand, nice blade, but is a little too thin for my taste. Full review

Columbia River Halfachance Parang

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Machete is sharp out of box and the sheaf is good quality with plenty of cord to lash it to a pack. The price for this machete is very reasonable. It is durable, well balanced and usable. This machete is easy to wield. I can chop thru some pretty good sized limbs and small logs with this just as fast and safer than my camp ax or hatchet. The balance on this blade is good, weight is forward for better chopping, and the handle has good grip with places to tie a lanyard. The sheaf is good quality… Full review

Buck Hartsook Ultralite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A tiny, light, fixed-blade knife, perfect for ultralight backpackers who don’t need a woodcraft blade. If you’re like me, you love backpacking forums in spring. The rebirth of annual questions from those just getting back on the trail. Questions so well-worn that the answers are wholly predictable. “What knife should I bring?” is one of those. Old-timers love their Swiss Army Classics. The bushcraft types will point to finely made, sturdy fixed-blade knives. To which the ultralight backpackers… Full review
