Big Rock Camp Knife

rated 4 of 5 stars The Big Rock Camp Knife is a great general-purpose fixed-blade camp knife. While it does use cheaper materials, it is relatively inexpensive and can handle years of abuse. To be honest, I can't remember when I originally picked up this knife. This is one of those items that has been in my pack for years and has somehow managed to survive  MATERIALS The blade on the Big Rock Camp Knife uses 440A stainless steel (.65% - .75% carbon) instead of a high carbon stainless steel like you'll find in more… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I like this knife for a number of reasons. Notably it has a double lock mechanism so it will never shut on my fingers. The compact size means it doesn’t take up valuable space and it weighs very little – 124 gms. The open design allows dirt and grit to fall through and not jam it up. The blade is 7cm or 2.75” in the old scale, the steel holds an edge well and cuts everything I've needed to date — opening dehydrated meal packets, cutting rope, fishing line and fruit. Additionally, there is… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Accessible, rugged protection. The reason I bought this knife is the pocket clip, which makes the knife easily and readily accessible when I experience drunks or hostile people or dogs while riding my bicycle.

Actually, I take it with me when walking, too, because you never know what kind of people/dogs you are going to encounter. It beats carrying a handgun, which I would… Full review

Gator Combo

rated 2 of 5 stars A disappointing product from Gerber who is normally renowned for quality and innovative equipment. This appears to be a gimmick aimed at the gift market. Forged steel head with overmolded handle. I bought this for use on the odd night or two camping in the woods when a fire would be needed. Whilst it is a good idea in principle, it fails in practice. The axe is well weighted and cuts small wood well enough. The knife is quite small and I would have preferred something at least an inch longer. The… Full review

Air Ranger

rated 5 of 5 stars Can't go wrong. Perfect knife, use it every day! One-handed opening is flawless. Works in office, home, or in the field. Can't even feel it in your pocket. I have used it hiking, backpacking, fishing, and I carry it every day!! Got it on eBay for like 15 bucks and have had no complaints. For the gear snobs, I carry it over my Griptillian, personal preference of course.  Full review
