Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 5 of 5 stars Good knife, it is very grippy even if it is wet outside. Very bright and colourful. This is a great little knife. The little draining hole at the bottom of it is very convenient if you get it wet. The fire steel is AMAZING!!!!!! The case is very strong and sturdy. Even though that belt clip looks like junk it works like a charm. It is very sharp thanks to the Mora blade.  Full review

Morakniv Companion Heavy Duty Knife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great price for a sturdy, sharp knife. I was looking for a decent low-cost trail knife and many folks all over the 'net recommended Morakniv Companion, or the Companion HD if you plan to baton wood and other bushcrafting. Found a pretty good deal on eBay (somewhere around $18 I believe) and ordered one. Heck, it's inexpensive enough that I could have ordered 3 or 4, but I wanted to be sure this is what I wanted before going hog wild. I had ordered the high-vis orange so when I set the knife down… Full review

ESEE Knives Junglas

rated 4 of 5 stars The knife is great. The sheath leaves much to be desired, but still works. "This is a knife." - M. Dundee If I had to choose one item to take with me to survive, this would be it. You could chop a tree down with this knife if you had to, or you could clean a fish (not as easy as with a small knife, but it's not difficult with a little practice). It does have some weight to it, but it helps with chopping, and it's balanced pretty good to minimize fatigue. While a big knife is more weight to be carried,… Full review

Kershaw Chill

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic knife that won't break the bank, or your heart, if you lose it. I've had a knife in my pocket since Junior High. I see them as tools and use them daily at work, so my EDC knife is usually one of my five Swiss Army knives. When backpacking, however, I usually take a locking blade. Twenty years ago, that was the standard Buck.  About five years ago, I began adding to my collection, and believe I have found (at least for me) what I consider to be the perfect knife. I've been drooling over… Full review

Spyderco Kiwi 4

rated 4 of 5 stars A very lightweight, high-quality folding knife with a blade that's excellent for cutting things and good for food prep. I like knives, and I'm always on the lookout for good backpacking knives. A backpacking knife needs to be light, strong, well constructed and functional. A folding knife for backpacking should have a sturdy pocket clip so that it can be securely carried. The Spyderco Kiwi 4 meets all these criteria. Version 4 of the Spyderco Kiwi is a significant upgrade to the Kiwi line of knives. Full review

Kershaw Half Ton

rated 2.5 of 5 stars OK knife for EDC or the pack, but there are much better knives out there. I bought this knife on a whim at my local Lowes for $20.   First the pros: It has a fairly stout, drop point, c8CR13MOV stainless steel blade that is easily sharpened. The blade doesn't have much recurve.  The thumb stud allows for quick, easy deployment. The liner lock seems to lock solidly. Conversely, the handle just didn't feel right. The knife felt very heavy in my hand, unlike some of the other knives I own. The wrench… Full review

Opinel No. 9 Folding Knife

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The proven simple and dependable design for over 100+ years. I purchased the #9 model from its indigenous country, France, during a conference meeting I was attending. I have known the knife for some time and wanted to add one into my gear arsenal. The sizes vary from ridiculously small to unnecessarily large. I picked the #9, a little bit larger than the popular #7 or #8. The first thing noticeable is the fact that it is light, almost feather-like. For those of you minimalist guys, I can definitely… Full review

Ozark Trail Pocket Knife

rated 3 of 5 stars I had issues with the screws falling out while in use. Bad if it were a survival situation. I put a lil soft set lock tight on them and now it's all good. Watch main blade screw too. Really is not a bad knife for the money. It will serve you well if you soft set lock tight the screws and don't work the knife too hard, just as you shouldn't any knife. Full review

Eddie Bauer First Ascent Belay Knife

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I like this knife, but the blade rattles (moves back and forth) when open quite a bit which is a large drawback for me. Full review
