Recent Knife/Tool Reviews

Leatherman Surge

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Surge is everything-in-one with its only limit being your own creativity. It's on the heavier side, but it won't fail you when you're out in the backcountry and need it the most. I brought the Surge backpacking in the Manistee National Forest as Ranger from The Dyrt. I found the design and features of the Surge to be incredibly intuitive and easily mastered. This tool does catch some slack for being on the heavier side but the weight directly translates to sturdiness and versatility. I would… Full review

Stihl Pro Splitting Hatchet

rated 4 of 5 stars Extremely high quality base camp tool for processing wood. The STIHL Pro Splitting Hatchet features a premium ash handle, oversized neck, and a drop-forged steel head. The hatchet measures 19.75" with a 2.75 lb. cutting head. I am a Natural Disaster First Responder as well as a SAR tech. I am a chainsaw instructor and was looking for a more compact yet heavy axe mainly for driving felling wedges with occasional chopping   This is worn on my belt. I also wanted to use this tool at base camp for… 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

Leatherman Sidekick

rated 5 of 5 stars The Leatherman Sidekick is an awesome multi tool with sharp knives/saws. It is great for camping since you can saw wood for fires, screw things in, and lots more. The Leatherman Sidekick is a great heavy duty multi tool. It is constantly easy to use. All you have to do is open it and pull out the tool you need. One great thing about this particular tool it that the saw is very sharp. It is very well made having thick tools. It really hasn't changed that much only the knives and saws getting a little… Full review

Gerber FAST Draw

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a good quality for the price knife that has the added benefit of an assist feature that really helps with one-handed opening of the knife. I have been carrying a Gerber Fast Draw knife daily for over the last ten years and have really grown to like it due to the assist feature and that it performs well given its low cost. For most of backpacking and hiking activities I generally don't carry this knife due to its weight, which is around 3.4 ounces, but for all my other waking hours I always… 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

TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 5 of 5 stars If you need to drop a deuce, pop a squat, pinch a loaf, or grunt a stinky in the woods, then TentLab's Deuce of Spades is just what you need. However, as an all-purpose multi-tool, there are limitations. Undoubtedly, the Deuce of Spades is an outstanding trowel. However SOME of Trailspace seem to feel this is the only piece of equipment you need in you pack. (I'm not naming names, but can you really trust reviews written by people using such obviously fake identities like "Mike" or "Elizabeth?")… Full review

Coghlan's Backpackers Trowel

rated 5 of 5 stars Most of the titanium cat hole shovels weigh from .6 to 1.0 ounces, price around 30$, and they are short (about 6 inches), and not ergonomic . The Coghlan's is longer, more of a bulb planting garden trowel. It has a good handle for leverage and weighs 2 ounces . When lightening up gear, I figure about 10$ per ounce to upgrade is a fair price from old to new. The Backpackers Trowel vs the titanium is a 25 to 27$ per ounce cost. Not a good price to pay to lose one measly ounce. You decide. Strong plastic,… Full review

TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight spade, and super dependable! Wanted to add to previous review, that I've used the TentLab spade for several months, and have dug down in shale, hard gravel, and packed dirt in Yosemite and Santa Barbara San Rafael Wilderness area, and have had no issues with it! Great tool, and super lightweight as mentioned. Love also the fact, as pointed out, it fits nicely next to water bottle! If you don't pack a bottle, my only suggestion is to be careful packing it the wrong way in your pack… Full review
